About Mike

Music is my life and air. I started playing the drums when I was 12 years old. I played in every band and music ensemble I could throughout junior high, high school, and college. I have played in bands outside of school with music styles ranging from Rock, Punk, Hardcore, Metal, and Hip Hop. Since 2008, I have been teaching private drum set lessons and marching percussion to students of all ages and backgrounds, including Special Needs. Recently, I attended the University of Texas at Arlington where I furthered my education in music teaching, music theory, performance, and percussion. I am also an experienced Djembe and Didgeridoo performer. Teaching and encouraging others in music comes naturally to me, and my degree in Music Business supports knowing how to prepare lessons and ...

Great drummer and great guy

Mike volunteers drumming for the band I lead at a local church. Regardless of how difficult the song selection is, he nails his part every week. Mike's experience with diverse musical genres allows him to draw upon a wide range of rhythms and techniques. In addition to his talent, Mike's character stands out as well. Each week he arrives early, is prepared, and friendly.
Gerson R. Irving, TX

If its the first time playing drums I can help you learn how to play. If you have been playing for a while I can teach you on how to improve your technique and be a better pocket drum player. For advanced drummers, we will focus on finger technique improving foot speed playing with click and over the click and learning Latin rhythms and many more creative ideas.

We met up with Gerson at Murphy's Music in Irving for our drum lessons. Gerson is as he describes himself, "very laid back and easy going". I would add that he was always professional and knows when to challenge and help his student grow.
He will make you feel at ease and meet you at whatever level you are at.
You can tell he has a great passion for music and why he makes it his chosen profession. We found him to be very reliable and yet flexible should schedules change.

Greg D. Carrollton, TX

About Greg

Greg has been playing drums since he received his first drum kit at the age of 8. His parents helped Greg nourish his abilities by enrolling him in private lessons and starting him in the school band program (which I see has an important aspect to learning, but not necessary). During his junior and high school years, Greg participated in concert bands, youth orchestra, marching band, and played in a variety of high school musicals. His time spent with these ensembles enabled him to travel overseas to London and all over the United States performing in festivals, parades, and competitions. After high school, Greg attended the acclaimed University of North Texas in Denton, Texas where he received his Bachelor of Music in 2002. His studies enabled him to learn history, arranging, ...

Ryan is so great with my 6 yr old son. He is very patient with him, and even though we are having our son learn piano for now, his ultimate goal is to learn the guitar. With Ryan knowing this about our son, he also allows him to strum the guitar every so often so that it reminds him how his piano lessons will ultimately pay off in the end. Ryan is super great with kids! I highly recommend him to anyone.

Ryan is an amazing Piano teacher! My son is 7 and requires a lot of patience and redirection, and Ryan is very good at keeping him on track. We had to switch teachers after the previous one was not a good fit for my son's strong personality. I highly recommend Ryan if your child is easily distracted and strong willed. :)
