My son is three lessons in with Doug. He has enjoyed them. Doug explains things to him, jokes around with him, and keeps the lessons fun. He understands that my son is a beginner and focuses the lessons accordingly. We are pleased with the instruction.

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, and blues, among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some rhythm theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

I want to make sure my students have a good time learning drums but I also want to make sure they learn a lot..! I always make sure to ask my students what they want to learn and what their favorite music is... after that, I figure out what type of lessons to plan out.

I'm a professional drummer, and studied jazz drums with the legendary Billy Hart at Oberlin Conservatory of Music. I have experience playing jazz, Latin, pop/rock, African, and contemporary Christian music at a professional level.

Though advanced jazz drumming is my specialty, I love teaching drum lessons to students of all skill levels, and welcome beginner and intermediate students as well as advanced ones.

Lessons with me will be catered to your individual needs. I also have a jazz-drums-specific curriculum that we can through together if that is your area of interest.

I’m a bilingual professional drummer/musician with a Masters degree in music. I have also been teaching drums for more than 18 years with students of all ages, from beginners to advanced drummers. I have also toured worldwide with many top artists like Becky G., Thalia, Oscar Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui, etc. Part of the things I think are important to learn as a drummer are: How to develop independence, hand/foot technique and speed, rudiments, theory, how to play different genres among other things.

Enjoyed my first lesson. I found Michael to be an excellent teacher and extremely interested in the "art" of teaching drums.
Joshua S.
Mike is a great teacher. He has a unique way to teach kids. I really enjoy learning from him along with my child. I highly recommend him.
Memo Oelke, age 12
Mike is a very good drummer and a very good instructor! I'm a student and it's a very fun, productive time, and just an all around good experience. All the songs I am/have learned are awesome and it's not confusing. In fact, its the exact opposite. If you ever have a question it isn't awkward or uncomfortable. All the songs I learn fit in my music taste and the way he teaches is very simple and I feel like i have made an incredible amount of progress. I can't wait for next lesson!
