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 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!

5/5- Mike is an excellent drum teacher for any skill level. He doesn't waste time with useless exercises, but instead shows you how to become a drummer that can creatively express yourself in the moment. Plus he has some of the best prices on here! If you're on the fence, I highly, highly recommend lessons with him!

Matt M.

Austin, TX

About Matt

Matt M. was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and found an interest in music as soon as his mom started playing songs through her belly with headphones and a record player. He moved down to Austin, Texas at the age of three where he continued to experiment with toy pianos and banging pots and pans.

At ten years old he discovered an enthusiasm for guitar and saxophone. Picking up those instruments for a couple of years brought him to playing drum set, jamming with his brother and friends, and listening to all sorts of music. His experience advanced in High School as he enjoyed playing in the ja
zz band, performing at different venues, and catching concerts.

When he graduated from High School, Matt decided to pursue his devotion towards music and enrolled in The University of North Texas. While attending he developed his craft on saxophone, drums, guitar, and worked on his technique with clarinet, flute, and piano. He also played in various ensembles and lab bands under the direction of Jim Riggs, Stefan Karlsson, and John Murphy.

Receiving a Bachelor's in Music in 2009, he stuck around Denton for a few years where he played in a variety of projects such as Bubba Hernandez y Los Super Vatos, Warren Jackson Hearne and Le Leek Electrique (nominated for best group in The Dallas Observer), and gained more experience in teaching. He currently is living back in Austin where he teaches, works as a freelance musician, and is developing other projects.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect an informative, laid back, and fun environment while taking lessons with me. Depending on their level of expertise I will go over the basics, give them technique exercises that will develop muscle memory, and use music theory references. After 3 months we will improve on sight reading, aural skills, and understanding how to apply music theory to all facets of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes a drum set, music stands, guitars (2), amp, and seating. No pets. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my equipment and expect my students to have their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, rock, blues, and classical music.

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.

My 9-year-old daughter is absolutely loving her lessons with Aaron. His enthusiasm for the instrument is contagious and his patient encouragement is just what she needs to stay motivated. Having been through two other disappointing drum teachers before this, we are thrilled to have found Aaron!

Michael really helped me develop my ability to communicate effectively when trying to arrange songs with other players.

He's incredibly easy to be around, setting the right mood for students of any experience level to receive instruction, ask questions, and try things out.

Definitely recommended!

Michael provided an amazingly comfortable environment in which I was able to excel as I wrote and recorded a song. He was most encouraging and helpful. With patience and an avidly apparent talent for music, I was inspired and pushed beyond what I thought I was capable of.

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 since I was 7. So that is about 22 years now! I am recently working at a recording studio. I can honestly say, I have landed my dream job! I live in a purely creative world and try to dive in to a pool of music daily. I am so excited to meet you and create music with you!

Reece not only taught me how to play drums, she taught me how to feel the music and lose myself within it. I find myself hearing music everywhere I go now. It's amazing. She's amazing.
