My 6 year old couldn't stop talking about her first lesson. She was very nervous but the instructor put her at ease and provided constant encouragement.

This has been an amazing process with my God son. He has ADHD and while initially he had some difficulty being focused he is beginning to slow down and is grasping the ability to learn. Wilma is very patient and an excellent instructor. We really approach her.

"Mr. Michael is the best drum teacher!

In the beginning, I was hesitant to pick up a new instrument. However, after the first lesson with Mr. Michael, I wanted to learn more.

Mr. Michael is so friendly and outgoing. Mr. Michael stands out as a music teacher because he makes the lessons fun by incorporating the student’s interests, whether it’s death metal or cool jazz! The worksheets never feel like homework. I’ve noticed a huge improvement just after a few lessons. His lively personality is so encouraging, and I look forward to every lesson.

Every lesson is tailored to the student’s strengths and weaknessses; he provides worksheets that are challenging but not overwhelming. When going over difficult material, he breaks it down and follows up with praise and positive comments. I never feel discouraged. The lessons are structured yet engaging. After every lesson, I feel a sense of accomplishment and the urge to practice.

If you have been searching for a drum teacher, Mr. Michael is the guy! He is a lively teacher that is passionate about his work. You will not regret choosing Mr. Michael as your teacher!"

"Definitely the best drum teacher ever!

I received a package of drum lessons for Mike in 2008, for my 12th birthday. I loved them and learned a great deal, but soon I ran out of lessons. A few years later, I was able to continue drum lessons in early 2011, until about July of 2013. During this time, Mike was never at a lack of content, in fact he had a fun worksheet for almost any style of drumming you want! Mike is great at teaching every style; rock, jazz, metal, and much more! I had a great experience, and Mike was a wonderful teacher! I was forced to put a pause on my lessons again in 2013 because I was busy starting my senior year of high school, and balancing a job. At the end of that year, I used some of the money I had saved up to continue my lessons throughout the Summer of 2014. It was well worth every penny!


Mike is a great teacher, for any age! His fun style of teaching allows you to learn, and want to practice as you are mastering even some of the toughest exercises. Over the six years I have known him, he has become more of a friend than a teacher! I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to play drums."

"Excellent quality of instruction!

I'm a 37-year-old drum student and I find this class very well organized. Mike comes to class very well prepared for each lesson and I don't feel that he goes too fast or too slow. The speed of the lesson is just perfect! I like being challenged and he does just that. At our 7th lesson, we started learning a song from my fave band, Guns n' Roses, and we're having so much fun!

I like very much that he has his own lessons printed for me to take home and practice. He is very good at writing down the "homework" for the week, which is pretty much what he feels I should practice on from what we have learned during the lesson. Everything he teaches prepares me for the next lesson.

In addition, one great thing about his studio is that I get to play on actual drums while he sits at another drum set in front of me, and via microphone and headsets, he teaches me the patterns. He is very enthusiastic about each lesson and I go home wanting to go straight to my drums and practice! No matter how tired I may be after a long day of work.

In every single aspect, the quality of instruction is excellent! I'm very glad to have found Mike on TakeLessons.com."

"Best drum teacher in Orange County

I've been talking lessons with Mike for about 5 years. He is both a great teacher and person. He combines a high level of skill and teaching ability with unmatched enthusiasm. His lessons are a combination of practice on the pad and on the kit, culminating in learning to play songs. Learning a new instrument is not easy, but this approach works and is very rewarding( as well as fun). Mike is also very friendly, fun, and energetic. To summarize, you WILL NOT regret choosing Mike. He is great teacher, and is someone who you or your child can become friends with. I will never regret having Mike as my drum teacher."
