Mike is going to be great instructor. He was able to quickly assess my level of experience and we already have the next few lessons planned out. I'd recommend him for any age or style you want to learn.
Margaret
Mike is an exceptional teacher. I’ve been a teacher, my parents were both teachers, we pay a lot of tuition to put our children in schools with (theoretically) well-paid and highly qualified teachers: IOW, I am really picky about teachers! Mike is the epitome of patience and clearly devoted to music and instruction. He is professional and conscientious. He kept my son challenged, engaged, and motivated to practice and improve. Truly, Mike is the kind of teacher you wish populated every classroom.
Christopher
Mike is awesome! Super down to earth and easy to talk to. He is understanding and patient and seriously takes the time to help you grasp new concepts and increase comfortability with new styles. He is an incredible musician and really understands the deeper meaning behind any drum style or technique that you are trying to learn. I have been a self taught drummer my whole life and I moved to Denver to attend CU for music after getting out of the Army. Mike helped me to prepare for my entrance exams and my drum kit audition, which I knocked out the park. I am now a full blown music student and officially on path to my dream career. Thank you Mike!! I'm looking forward to more lessons and to continue improving!

"great teacher

Rebecca gave my children piano lessons for several years, bi-monthly. She was very good about working with my limited budget (my wife is anti music). They really enjoyed their lessons and progressed nicely until my wife put an end to it and let her go.

In addition, Rebecca helped me with my more advanced music when she could and I appreciated this, too.

One slight criticism is that she was a little too nice, my son sometimes got out of hand during lessons.

Good luck Rebecca!"
