Michael F.

Austin, TX

I found when I learn new instruments that the biggest obstacle is technique. For my Beginners I concentrate on technique and rudiments
For intermediate students I concentrate on improvisation and learning songs verbatim.
For my advanced students I concentrate on improvisation of coordination exercises and odd meters and tempo modulations

About Michael

Hi I'm Mike!
I've been playing/teaching drums for over 20 years. I started out playing in Punk and Metal bands. I later got interested in Jazz which led me to the University of North Texas. I graduated there in 99 and boy did I learn a thing or two. Attending such a highly competitive school taught me a few things about learning new concepts and setting goals. I have since adopted a philosophy that yields results and have eliminated the "busy work" approach that most drum teachers use. My main interest is to see my students achieve their dreams!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a pretty
laid back teacher. I let student drive the intensity of the lessons. I have a few set goals that all my students must achieve but it is up to the student to determine how soon they meet them. After 3 months my students will be able to play a handful of songs chosen by them. They will also be able to play rudiments as wells as improvise with them on the kit. After 6 months a student should be able to learn drum parts by ear. At that point my students should also be able to take any memorized beats or fills and "remix" them spontaneously!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in a separate room which includes 2 drum sets and recording equipment. 1 dog kept separate. Seating available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student should provide a permanent space where the drums are located and either a video recorder or hand held audio recorder. The student must also provide a metronome capable of being heard over the drums.

*** Specialties ***
I concentrate on drum set. I teach lots of styles at any level. I encourage learning by ear before I teach reading.

Mike is a great teacher that really understands how to pace his students. As an intermediate drummer, I have been taking lessons with him for a couple of months and really enjoy his style. He encourages improvisation rather than repeating patterns that any old goof could play. In a city where there are probably a lot of jokers trying to teach drums, Mike is one of the few that knows his stuff and knows how to cater to each unique student.

Mike is an excellent teacher. Passionate and knowledgeable about all things drumming, and just a chill personality overall, unlike teachers I've had in the past. I find him very easy to work and communicate with. I live an hour away from Austin, and often have to reschedule lessons due to a hectic and unpredictable work schedule. Mike has always been flexible when needed, and very fair when it comes to cancellations. If I could, I would take lessons more often.

I am thrilled to be working with Michael! I am a first time "OLDER" student who has never played the drums. Michael is an excellent teacher and I am very comfortable working with him! His personality and teaching style works great for me! I like his hands on learning approach and feel like I am moving forward at a good pace. I have only had three lessons, but so far so good! If you are looking for a drum teacher Michael is wonderful!

Natalie M.

Austin, TX

Been playing professionally for several years. Hold a couple different sponsorships from different companies. Drum set or classical. First picked up sticks in 1995.

About Natalie

My name is Natalie McD, I was born in Texas and have been playing music all my life. Music runs in my family, my mother plays the bass, my sister the trombone, my brother the cello, my older sister the oboe, and my grandparents play guitar, mandolin, piano, harmonica, and just about anything else; I've been around all sorts of instruments and know my way around quite a few. Drums is my passion. My mom gave me drum sticks when I was four, and my first Remo practice pad. I play drums in an all female rockabilly band called Danger*Cakes in Austin, Texas and we play shows all over America and hope
fully internationally soon. After drums, I'd have to say songwriting is my next biggest passion. Playing acoustic or electric guitar, and some piano, learning mandolin and harmonica, is the best way I find to express myself musically and I've really learned how to use music theory to make a song my own. I've written about 50 songs myself, since I learned how to play guitar in 2006, and have taught myself the other instruments as I needed to for recording purposes as well as song production in general (playing with bands, and other musicians). My mother has been a teacher my whole life, so I've have been in classrooms helping her since I can remember. My first job was at a daycare and I've taught at Girls Rock Camp in Austin and plan on continuing. So teaching, looking after, and definitely entertaining kids is something I feel very comfortable with, as well as any other age, I've taught peers and people older than myself. I love music and I love to have fun.

Aaron P.

Austin, TX

I have been playing drums for 16 years. It is my true passion. We can go over basics like breathing, technique, posture, holding the sticks, hitting the cymbals and drums, and tuning the drums. We can also get into rhythms, grooves, licks, tricks, fills, odd times, odd subdivisions, reading, learning solos, and more! I'm game for everything. We can set up an extra kit at your place or my place.

About Aaron

I was an engineering tutor at University of Texas at Austin from 2006-2009. I graduated from UT with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. I am very familiar with the UT engineering courses (from the beginning to the end).

While I was at UT, I also studied jazz drumming with Brannen Temple. I have been playing professionally for over ten years with lots of different bands. Teaching and playing music are the most gratifying things for me. But I also like to teach math!

I have been teaching high school math, physics, and music theory at Premier High School of North Austin for five yea
rs (2009-2014). I am a certified teacher by the state of Texas.

Reece H.

Austin, TX

Everything from proper ear training to the correct way to hold your drums sticks. I will be teaching how to influctuate between 1/2 of a beat to 1/16 of a beat. I will be teaching more about rhythm flow and feeling the actual drum set as you play.

About Reece

Hi there! My name is Reece. I have been playing drums and swimming through the waves of music for 22 years now! I currently work a dream job at a recording studio and work as an instructor at this wonderful organization.
I live a purely creative world and try to dive in to a pool of music daily. What you could expect from my sessions is learning to not only count out the beats, but to really be able to flow and adapt to the art of the music. I cater to all learning styles, and would love to unlock your specific kind. I am so excited to meet and create music with you!

Reece is more than just an excellent drummer and instructor. She is an amazing human being. I've worked with her for years on musical collaborations and she has a magical way of communicating about an art (music) that can be difficult to put into words. She is extremely humble and makes you feel comfortable in any situation. Of any musician that I know, hands down, I would choose as a percussion instructor. I CAN NOT RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH!!!

Reece was excellent! She had prepared for my child, who is sensitive, then was open to follow his lead during the lesson. He connected with her quickly and they were able to accomplish a great deal together in just the first lesson. Thank you! We are already looking forward to our next one.

My daughter recently developed an interest in playing the drums. I was a little apprehensive at first, due to her young age and her vibrant personality, and felt bad for whomever would have to teach her. Without a doubt it would require a lot of patience and ability. Well, thanks to Reece, my daughter is now excelling and more and more excited about this new-found talent! Thank you Reece for your expertise and teaching ability!

Zachary Y.

Austin, TX

My lessons will be fun, first of all. Drumming is about having fun, and communicating the human experience though our instrument. Learning to do that requires sound technique and the right mental approach to the drums. Whatever level you're at I can help you get better!

About Zachary

Hello!

I recently graduated from DePaul University with a degree in Jazz Studies. I received my jazz training from drummer Dana Hall, and the great faculty at DePaul. I also hold training in classical percussion having taken lessons from members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Chicago Lyric Opera among other orchestral organizations. I currently teach students through the Austin Independent School District as a private lessons instructor. I also teach through the after school program Beyond The Grade.

I currently play with Interrobang Brass, and I'm in the process of releasing my
debut album.
