I was 13 when I received my first bass and up through high school mostly played classic rock and punk. After high school I really got into Jazz and studied it for a few years before being accepted into CSU long beach music program. At CSU Long Beach I had the opportunity to perform with many different styles of jazz and many different group sizes and instrumentation. I also played in their orchestra and received classical training for the upright bass. Since graduating I have a working blues and rock band I gig with regularly all over LA county and a Rock Band that plays LA county also. Throughout the past 12 years since I started playing music I have written, arranged and put groups together to perform my original music. With this training and experience I can offer any student a stronger foundation for playing and performing their music but also help with creating their own music.

My name is Mike T. and I'm a professional musician of 10 years. I started playing piano at the age of 8 and studied classical, rock, pop, ragtime, blues, and impressionistic styles. At the age of 11 I got my first drum set and started jamming to bands like Metallica, Foo Fighters, Blink 182, NOFX, Black Sabbath and of course Led Zepplin. By the time I reached the age of 21 I was a well established, mutli-instrumentalist.
I then attended Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA where I honed my skills as a drummer and overall musician. I can now play all styles of drumming from Rock and Metal, to Latin and Jazz, to Reggae and Funk..you name it. I also studied Harmony & Theory, Ear Training, Technique, Sight Reading, and Performance. I graduated in 2010 and never looked back. I've toured the country with numerous rock bands, recorded many albums, and taught hundreds of students.
I've been teaching now for 5 years, and let me tell you I've seen it all. From a crying 5 year old who cant play a scale to a born natural with skills only a prodigy should possess. My main goal as a teacher is to intrigue my students with the art of music. I keep my lessons fun, interesting, and informative. Each one of my students receives a custom lesson plan based on their skill level and musical goals. I'm very personable with my students and always make sure they enjoy what they learn. I teach students how to play songs they desire as well as basic progressions and song structure. I also teach the importance of time keeping, technique, reading, and performance.
So if you're looking for a great teacher with a commitment to his students and a passion for the shaping musical minds look no further. I'm the teacher for you.
