Private Drum Teacher

As a teacher that cares alot for the student, I get to know excactly what the student likes and needs. Music is fun and a passion so learning it has to be fun as well . We will be listenining to your favorite music as you learn to play to it. The best way to learn is to listen and then playing along with good instruction. Learning rudiments and syncopation, there are asignments to practice in the process.

I love working with students of all ages and walks of life and I can't wait to meet you and begin to smash those drums!

Private Drum Teacher

Ciao guys, Mattia here.

Have you ever wanted to play drums but you don’t know how to start? Or have you played for a while and feel stuck, like you’re losing time or missing a piece?

I felt the same when I first started, but private lessons helped me achieve my goals and become the person I am today: A Professional Musician.
If I did it, so can you.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on.

Are you ready to improve your skills?

"Excellent drum instructor

Our son, Jonah, has been taking lessons with Mike for a little over 18 months. It was one of the best decisions we ever made for him. Mike established rapport with Jonah very quickly. He has learned our son's quirks, likes, capabilities - and tailors instruction accordingly. Mike is very professional, reliable, and there has never been a disconnect with communication. His studio is inviting to visitors, and we're so lucky to have him teach in our neighborhood."

"Excellent Drum Teacher

Our son has been taking drum lessons from Jesse for over a year now. We are amazed at his progress and so pleased that he has developed another interest outside of sports that will provide him life balance. Jesse's teaching style keeps kids interested and motivated. The various things he is working on challenge our son weekly. He struggles with a new rhythm and then after practicing it is able to figure it out. I think that weekly feeling of accomplishing something through practice is such a good lesson for our kid! Each time we ask him if he wants to continue with lessons he says "Yes!" Thanks Jesse!"

Can't say often enough how lucky we are to have Jesse found as the drums and guitar teacher of my two sons. You can tell that he lives for music and it's not just a job for him teaching students. He is determined but patient with the kids and really has educational skills. Furthermore he is absolute reliable and committed.

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 …
