Private Drum Teacher

I have been playing drums for over 30 years. I have toured with bands, recorded albums and played with many different musicians. I have also learned to play other instruments such as guitar and piano. And I have found great amazement and wonder while continuously learning on this musical journey. I can give a wide perspective, not just from the drum throne. Drumming can be a very special part of your life. It does not have to be a career, but can be an amazing way to express yourself and learn about the world through many different rhythms and patterns. Music can be very formal, but there's also a lot of room for everyone to learn about improvisation and self expression.

Private Drum Teacher

I've been teaching Drums since 2004 and recently started back January 2013. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play all rudiments and as time goes on you'll be able to play in bands and in JH and HS bands. I typically use the Haskell Harr, and now include Alfred's Drum Method book for Snare; Tommy Igo for drum-set. His posters from Vic Firth are great resources (which I send out to new students). I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

"Chuck has been teaching my son drums for several years now. In addition to being an accomplished musician and sound board technician in his own right, Chuck is also a great drum teacher and all around friendly guy.

I have seen my son’s drumming improve drastically over the last few years while he’s been under Chuck’s tutelage. Chuck has also taught my son how to mix his drumming with other instrument tracks on the sound board in order to create CDs and MP3s to send to his grandfather.

If you want a drum teacher who approaches his craft in a spirit of excellence, Chuck Reichel from Sound Picture Studio is the instructor for you!"

"Our son(11) is finally enthused, motivated, and excited to practice drumming. He is making consistent progress and takes initiative to practice on his own since we started lessons with Mike! Mike makes lessons fun and engaging by teaching the music our son loves and wants to learn. We were initially hesitant about online lessons, but Mike's sound and video quality are excellent and we have had no problems. We have had some scheduling conflicts (on our end) and Mike is flexible and communicative, and quick to respond. Five stars well earned!"

We couldn't be happier with Matt. He has taken a shy, not-so-confident young boy and turned him into a proud, musically knowledgeable and darn good drummer !!!
