Private Drum Teacher

Clifford Drum School offers exceptional education personalized to each individual student. I've been teaching for over 8 years and work with each student to develop lesson plans based on their interests. Lessons take place in a professional environment where students get to learn drumming fundamentals, reading, music theory as well as learning to play their favorite songs by ear. Finally, students will have the opportunity to perform at student recitals as well as learn about recording technology while recording their own drum covers (student performance examples below!). Lessons are also available at the student's home for a nominal fee.

This guys personal etiquette leaves much to be desired. Id never let him around my children. He is rude and argumentative when he doesn’t get his way.
Never seen him play out much to have all this expertise he claims either.
Fo yourself a favor and find someone else.

Mike is a very good Teacher.
I have a 7 years old son that loves him. He is very polite and professional working with the kids.
I totally recommend him to everyone.

My approach to teaching is different, it is a combination of my experience as a performer, a teacher and a student. That means a lot of information, building a solid rudimentary vocabulary and the ability to put all of that into a solid pace and perspective.

No one can infuse you with the skills necessary to become proficient with any instrument. They can teach you basics and even advanced techniques, but to make them yours, you must implement what you have been taught and practice, practice, practice.
Loran's strength with and gift to me is that he is my coach. He is amazingly good at being my coach. Loran reassures me that what I have do so far is good, encourages me to be better, and motivates me to continue striving.
As a sixty-something who was basically starting over with respect to the piano, Loran is my guru.
Mark Avant Gaitor

"Lets start off with Andrew, he is a great teacher. He is straight-forward when he needs to be, and doesn't beat around the bush. However he is highly considerate and friendly. As a high school student in a high competition area, my fellow percussionist lack guidance in terms of what to know about drums/percussion. I came into the year having bad technique, poor reading skills (reading music), and not a lot of confidence in playing in front of my class (solos required by school). Andrew was able to help me with all of those things. Also, i never feel rushed, and you can go at your own pace, yet some how there is always improvement. If your having any doubts, one lesson would clear those up. All in all, Andrew is a great teacher, and i look forward to continuing my lessons with him. (I have had about 18 lessons with him so far)"

"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."

"Both my daughter and son love taking lessons from Carmen. Carmen’s fun class and love of drum drew out their interest in drum from the very beginning. Carmen is always prompt, and her lessons are organized and a lot of fun. She also provides clear practice instructions to students and parents. Outside of lesson time, Carmen found us a drum set and set it up for us. Because my son is young and small, she also found him chair and stands that could adjust low in height. We feel very lucky to have Carmen as our drum teacher."
