My first lesson with Joe was Awesome and eye opening!
Joe has plenty of patience when it comes to rookies like me! I felt very comfortable at his location!
I'm working on the techniques and homework he gave me and now it's making sense as I'm practicing at home what we went over on my first lesson. I feel like I made a great choice from the get go and I'm excited and looking forward my next 14 lessons!

Our son Nick has really enjoyed working with Eric, since he started taking drum and bell kit lessons, since last December 2014. Eric is professional, patient, easy for our son to learn from, approachable, encouraging, gives compliments and helps build confidence. Eric also assists with Nick's music performances and preparation for music tests, and always is dependable. Eric was able to teach our son music notes easily, after taking lessons from a popular music school that did not do justice. We are very impressed by Eric and we as a family would recommend him highly to any student learning percussion.

Online Drum Teacher

Hello! Thank you for considering me as your drum set teacher! I offer lessons to beginner, intermediate, and advanced level students. If you are a beginning student we will start from the ground up with proper technique, and we’ll get some basic patterns going. From there we will learn how to read rhythmic notation and drum set notation so we can get you playing some songs! I like to use handouts and some of my favorite books that I used growing up to help new students understand the importance of being able to speak the language not only by playing what we feel, but also by speaking on our instrument with our ability to read music. I will transcribe beginning songs of your choice, and we will learn the grooves from classic tunes! Intermediate and advanced students will be introduced to rudiment studies, learning different styles of drumming, and learning how to make your own transcriptions so you can start to learn how to read and write music on a higher level, and eventually create ...

You've got to walk before you can run, so I focus on the basics. But, the basics can be a lot of fun! Especially once we start to apply them to your favorite songs, and being creative with them - that's kind of what it's all about!

About Mike

Amazing, patient really informative instructor and just a great guy. Highly recommend.
Vince
Mike was really the best instructor I could have asked for. Knowledgeable, patient, and best of all, chill when he needed to be. I was just picking up the drums for a high school band I was in at the time, and he was more than willing to help me learn whatever dumb song me or my band had decided sounded cool at the time. At the same time, he showed me a lot of really excellent practice techniques, directed me to some solid literature for different rhythms to work on, and would sit with me through a whole hour of my relentless mistakes like it was nothing. More than a good instructor, he's a really cool guy! He never missed a beat!
Fred
Mike brings it all to the lesson...musicianship,
decades of experience, versatility and creativity.
