Joshua is extremely talented in reaching the student at his/her level. He is extremely positive and looks to connect with his students to give them a panoramic view of music in general and then drills down to how that would relate to the drums.
My son is always excite to see Joshua and looks forward to each lesson. Joshua takes the work out of the lesson and lets the student have fun and explore, all the while teaching basics without it being apparent to the student!

Just a really awesome person and instructor!

Joshua has been excellent with my son Max (10 years old). He's very patient and positive. His calm demeanor is great for instructing. He keeps Max interested and enthusiastic. Max enjoys taking lessons from Joshua, and I would highly recommend him to anyone of any age.

If you are interested in picking up the sticks and becoming a drummer, my classes are for you! My lessons are designed for beginner drummers and (if interested) will evolve into ensemble training to prepare you for writing, performing and recording with other musicians. I have had students as young as five and some well into their eighties, it's never too late to learn something new. Schedule your first drum lesson today!

Note: Please contact me with your preferred lesson day and time as the listed availability is subject to change due to holidays and studio projects.

Craig
He made it fun and easy to learn and covered many different styles. Other instructors/schools that I've worked with are really geared towards casual learners, but Mike covers the whole spectrum.
Penny
5/5 Highly recommended! Mike taught me years ago and he gave me the confidence I couldn't manage to find on my own! I'm no spring chicken, but I really wanted to groove on the drums and I found the best instructor out there!
Tyler
Mike is the best teacher I've had and made learning a fun and productive experience. After a few lessons at my local music store I wasn't sure I'd continue my pursuit of drumming, but after meeting with Mike thanks to a friends referral I'm happy to say I've gone from a shy learner to a confident musician that actively plays with a band.

About Athan

Hello potential students! I have been teaching music for over eight years, and love teaching as much as music itself. As someone who started late (began drumming at age 16), and quickly progressed from complete (i.e. terrible) beginner to studying at nationally ranked CSU Northridge's jazz program,

Beginner
I'm not currently taking beginner drum students. Please refer to my studio partner Melissa:
https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62

Intermediate
Start to learn about polyrhythms as well as developing your ears and body to play songs more accurately. Start to spice up your playing with ways that are interesting, but not intrusive.

Advanced
Really push your polyrhythms and add asymmetrical meters to your repertoire to expand your grasp of complex rhythms. Also learn to use dynamics, cymbal work, and fills to effectively communicate and lead a band without words.

About Jesse

*Disclaimer* I'm currently not taking beginner students for bass, drums, piano, and ukulele or children under 10 years old. I highly recommend my studio partner Melissa though. Please check out her profile: https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62 My Background I've been playing with

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"Christian Johnson is one of the finest percussion instructors I have ever known. He worked on our marching band staff for several years serving as the drumline instructor. Thanks to his patience, professionalism, and wonderful personality, the drumline grew to unseen levels and helped thrust the band into one of the finest in the state for many years.

I strongly recommend Christian Johnson for any type of percussion teaching."

Maintenance 101: Caring For Your Drum Set Cymbals

Taking special precautions and caring for your instrument is important for all musicians - just taking a few minutes to clean your guitar, for example, can ensure a longer life of strumming and jamming. Similarly, taking good care of your drum set is an important habit to keep up.  Too many drummers forget the importance of keeping their drum set clean, and tend to pack up their equipment carelessly.  Cymbals, especially, are easily forgotten during this process.  Taking a few minutes to c …

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 …
