Private Drum Teacher

I have been playing drums for more than 10 years and have been teaching for more than 3. Throughout that time, I have played across the country in New York City and even in Japan. I am currently a Jazz Studies Major at Sacramento State University. My goal is to make every student a well-rounded drummer who knows whats going on when they are in any type of musical situation. My favorite style to play is jazz, but I am well-rounded in all other styles such as rock, Latin, blues, funk, and country.

In my lessons, I base the material on the student depending on how advanced they are. If the student is just starting out, I will teach them the basics such as holding the drumsticks properly, basic rudiments, reading rhythms, learning about the hardware, and so on.

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask :D

About Gabriel

I started playing drums when I was in second grade and formed a band with my 2 older brothers who played bass and guitar. It was something to do when we younger but when I got into high school, I took playing drums a lot more seriously. I was in a very competitive marching band playing bass drum an

I took conga lessons with Michael, and he was a wonderful teacher. He explained drumming techniques very well, demonstrated patience while I got the feel of it, and taught me a wide range of rhythms in a short time. Michael is extremely well-versed in a number of drumming styles, and brought a variety of percussion instruments for me to try. His passion for the music, as well as the associated cultures, is evident in his interesting anecdotes about the exotic places in which he learned his craft. I enjoyed listening to Michael play as much as learning to play myself, and I would highly recommend Michael to students at any level!!!
Nate H.
Mike is the best percussionists, drummers, and teachers I know and is extremely active performing and touring in the music industry today! He is a seasoned, world touring professional that really knows his stuff! Whether you are new to drumming, a pro drummer who needs to tighten up your chops, or strictly a drummer who wants to learn how to approach and play percussion properly, Mike is the guy who can help YOU reach your musical goals and aspirations.

I've had the pleasure getting to know Mike while touring, drumming, marching in Drum Corps drumlines throughout the years. I have learned so much from his extensive musical knowledge and he continues to inspire me to be a better drummer and percussionist today. Mike Washinton is a great teacher, with a giant personality and most importantly a great friend! Book a lesson with him today and you will grow into the great drummer you aspire to be!
Robert
5 years ago I met Mike at Wiregrass Ranch High School, he was my drum instructor. I honestly could not think of anyone better than him to teach me. He constantly made sure I set goals and always did everything he could to give me the resources I needed to better myself as not just a drummer, but a musician as well. If it weren't for him I don't even know where I would be. He always brings the energy, he never falls off topic, and is always so cool and relaxed, regardless of how stressful the situation is. Taking lessons with him every time leaves me wanting to know more and more about the knowledge he shares. You will not regret a second spent with him, his experience shows and his ability to teach is truly special. Mike you're awesome!!

Online Drum Teacher

Cassie Baker is a writing, performing and teaching musician based in Austin, Texas. When she’s not performing with her band Stretch Panic, entertaining groups of children with Mystic Drumz, or gigging for hire, she spends her time teaching out of her home studio in North Austin.

Cassie received her first drum set at age 10, when her parents grew tired of her beating the pots and pans in the kitchen. Since then, she has not put the sticks down.

Throughout her education, Cassie participated in state-wide percussion competitions, led her school’s drumline, and attended summer music camps at University of North Texas and the local community college. She also coached the younger students in her school’s music program through their own auditions and competitions. Her training instilled a solid foundation of hand technique, reading and composition, and musical versatility.

Today, with 22 years of experience, Cassie uses these skills to educate and inspire her students of all levels

From day one, Cassie has not only been enthusiastic about music, but also about creating a relationship with my daughter. I can visibly see progress in my daughter's understanding of rhythm in what we listen to and she loves to create games around the subject. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Cassie.

We love Cassie! My son, who struggles to focus, loves his time with her...from learning rudiments to playing the music that HE loves. She’s a fantastic drummer AND teacher!

Hi! I've been giving music lessons in person since 2012, focusing on drums and guitar, with students of ages ranging from 5-65 years of age & everywhere in between. Having studied music (with a focus on composition) and graduated with a Bachelor's degree from Columbia College Chicago in 2011, I've learned enough about music to teach intermediate/advanced concepts. I've also spent lots of time with students who are brand new to learning music, so giving lessons for beginners is something i'm very familiar with, as well. I've also been balancing my music teaching with performing, and have been doing so regularly for over 15 years, mainly around the Chicagoland area. I look forward to working with people who are excited to learn more about music, via TakeLessons. Thanks!

"Mike is one of the best drum instructors out there. I've been taking lessons with him from middle school, and he has helped me succeed to become the jazz drummer and drum captain at Marina High School. Mike understands several different styles: rock, jazz, Latin, metal, and more. In addition, he teaches students the proper technique, rudiments and how to read sheet music. Most importantly, Mike stands out from other instructors because he spends time trying to understand his students' interests and incorporates them into his lessons. He is very outgoing and energetic, so his lessons are always fun and educational. Overall, I highly recommend him because he challenges and inspires his students to become better drummers."

5 Best Drum Books for Beginners

Learning to play the drums is not something you can do in a single day or a single lesson. Drumming is an art form, in many ways, and it takes time to develop. Beginner drummers can get frustrated easily, but stick with it and you’ll be playing the drums (and playing them well!) sooner than you might think. While private lessons are the quickest most efficient way to learn to play, you’ll also need to practice at home to really develop your talent. Combine this with the right drum books, and …
