We will develop solid time, technique, reading, and rudiments. To foster musicality we will focus on critical listening . We will focus on effective practicing to maximize our efforts. We will learn to apply rudiments and stickings around the drums for interesting and dynamic fills. We will play together to focus on listening and ensemble skills. We also have the ability to record our lessons for later review.

About Aaron

In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student. I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Aaron has been great for my son (who's 8 and just starting). He's fun, super patient and keeps my son's attention well throughout the lesson. He has paced the lessons well so far. We're very happy and totally recommend Aaron.

Josh is an exceptional teacher. At first, I was not confident at all with my playing; I didn't know where to start. But once we began our lessons, he instilled the confidence in me that I needed to get to the next level. He is communicative, friendly, and professional. I would recommend his lessons to anyone who wants a great, dedicated teacher!

Private Drum Teacher

I've been teaching contemporary drum set in Orange County for over a decade, and many of my students have gone on to not only play and read notated drum set music with ease, but have continued their studies at arts high-schools and music colleges, with several of them continuing on to the professional world. I use an award winning curriculum used at many music academies and conservatories, and have received accolades for my ability to retain many students for many years. Within the first few lessons, a new student will be able to understand the basics of rhythm and snare drum notation, play a plethora of relatable and cool sounding grooves, and build a foundation that will serve the student for a life time.

About Michael

Hi! My name is Michael and I am excited at the prospect of teaching you or your child... I absolutely love to teach, but not just because of my love for the drums or my life-long appreciation of music, but because of my enjoyment of people and the learning process itself. I feel that this is i

Michael is an awesome instructor for our 8 year old. This was his first lesson with Michael and when he finished his lesson he practiced and then a few hours later we heard the drums again! Thank you Michael!
Theresa
When my son's school mandated that all students learn an instrument and I found out that he had been assigned DRUMS, I was at a loss. The lessons provided by the school were basic and I didn't feel that my son was getting the full benefit of all the drums had to offer. Luckily, we found Mike!

Mike set my son at ease instantly. He is very personable and has the gift of getting to know his students in a genuine manner. His friendly demeanor and willingness to use humor, without talking down to his students, sets him apart. Mike took the time to get to know Tom, including his musical interests, so that he could create high-interest lessons that motivated my son to practice and increased his love of music. Mike was able to explain clearly to my son what they were doing, how to do it properly, and why doing it correctly was worth the time invested. Not having had experience with drums, I had no idea how much technique is involved! Mike provided not only drum lessons, but life lessons as well.

As a parent, I have always appreciated Mike's timely communication. I have never had to wonder when my son's lessons would be, when payment was due, or what to do when I had a scheduling conflict. (By the way, Mike understands the chaos that sometimes goes along with being a working parent.)

To sum things up, Mike is a charismatic teacher who uses his expertise to instruct his students in how to become exemplary musicians and people. I recommend him without reservations.
Derek
I have taken lessons with Mike for over 7 years, and getting into drumming has been the best thing that has happened in my life. Mike is an excellent teacher, who truly loves to teach. You feel his joy, he is never condescending, and he is never more than a couple steps away from making a silly joke.
Drums have given me a hobby to keep improving as I get older. It has given me a passion for music, both performing, and listening. It has also allowed me to have experiences I never would been able to have without learning the drums, such as playing in the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade, winning 1st place with my high school drumline, and making lifelong friends as part of my high school's music program.
I highly encourage to take lessons with Mike. He is the best.

I have been playing the drums even before I could create coherent sentences. I come from a long line of percussionists and have been playing for over 18 years. As a professional drummer, I have played small lounge gigs and have played at big festivals as well. I have a very extensive understanding of all the styles of music ie Rock, reggae, jazz, R&B, gospel, Latin, etc. You name it; I've played it! I am an experienced teacher and i have even helped some of my students to land paying gigs as well. I am committed to the musical growth of all of my students and believe in their ability to be great drummers. Don't wait to start your drumming journey!

Jasmine
Dan taught me to play dozens of genres over a decade of study, ranging from jazz and Latin standards to 9-min long progressive metal epics, and that one World Tour orchestral score with the tempo modulation. I've played at drop-in jazz jams and rock gigs thanks to Dan's training. Highly recommend.
Chris
Dan knows the drums thoroughly and knows how get students to play quickly. Highest recommendation
Stephanie
We had a wonderful experience with Dan as my son's drum instructor. My son started at a fairly young age (6) and was interested in playing more what he heard on the radio, anywhere from Taylor Swift to Metallica. Dan was extremely patient in developing his lessons with my son by incorporating these types of songs in his lesson and keeping my son's interest up throughout the 30 minute lesson/"jam session." I'd highly recommend Dan to anyone interested in learning drum skills like those of Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, and other rock and roll legends.

My 7 yr old has been taking drum lessons with Henri for aobut 2 months. He is always excited to go, and never wants to leave at the end. He is learning rhythms and other drum basics. Henri is great at keeping him on track, but allowing for enough fun/free play as well. It is great that Henri has two drum kits so they can both play the whole lesson."

"Keith is a drummers, drummer. Aside from being an exceptional drum instructor, he has LOADS of touring experience, professionally recorded, numerous workings with "Big Names" in the music industry, and not to mention the grammy's are quite impressive :-)
Keith not only taught me how to read drum music, but he encouraged me relentlessly when it sometimes became challenging, as things worth while often are.
He explained the ever important role of 'time management' in music and how it not only affects music, but also that it affects every aspect of our lives.
Keith has been a mentor and also a friend. As a person with my own successes in the industry, I have found a profound inspiration from Keith. I cherish our 30 min together and wouldn't trade them for anything. I highly recommend Keith as a drum teacher for ALL ages."

"Mike Enriquez has been our son’s drum teacher over the past few years. In addition to helping introduce our grade school kid to the sweet, sweet sounds of Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes and AC/DC, Mike has introduced my son to the idea of putting in time and effort to achieving goals.

We love the respect and sometimes superhuman patience Mike shows our son. He seems committed to the process of learning rather than the result. It’s an important distinction and we feel extremely fortunate to have found Mike.

Mike sets realistic expectations tailored to our kid, but the main focus is the love of the instrument rather than some cookie-cutter formula. If Duncan is having an off day, Mike takes it from where he is with no badgering or haranguing.

I’d recommend him to anyone looking to learn to play drums. Even if you’re an adult. He’s a great teacher.”

I am a special type of learner and i had never held drum sticks before- Khalil was and still is beyond patient with me and what i appreciate most is that he works with how i learn best. there has been several times he has come up with a couple different ways for me to get certain lessons. he's able to do this because he has soo much experience and such an admirable love for the art.

"David is a world-class musician with the rare ability to communicate the most complex musical ideas clearly and simply to students of all ages. Within the first hour of the first lesson, David helped our son, then age 12, identify technical issues that were causing him problems and stripped away bad habits that were holding him back. With David's professional guidance in both drums and percussion, our son's progress has been remarkable. In our son's own words: “David is creative with a good sense of humor, which always makes lessons fun.” We cannot recommend him more highly."
