Tyler is an excellent teacher who made learning music fun for my kids. I have twin boys and one of them took drum lessons from Tyler and the other took piano. Both boys loved taking lessons with Tyler and looked forward to the lesson each week. Tyler was very professional in his communication and was super easy to work with. I would highly recommend Tyler.

Tyler worked with our daughter for over a year prior to relocating to Portland. He was engaging and a talented teacher (and drummer!). We were sorry to see him leave Chicago, but whoever works with him will be in for a treat.

Definitely take lessons with Tyler!

Learn to play the drums quickly!!!!

About Michael
I have many years experience as a working musician, combining: Private drum instruction, freelance studio work, and collaboration with musicians and bandmates in both a live and studio setting.

I have been a member of solid Metropolitan Detroit bands, most notably including: Friends of the Family, Night Train, and The Mobius Loop. I have been blessed with many great opportunities, most notably supporting national acts, such as: The Headhunters, Melvin Seals, Mofro and Strange Folk. And, I have recorded at excellent Metropolitan Detroit studios, including: Studio N Armada, Riff Lab Studios, Woodshed Studios and The Disc. Most recently, I participated in two separate studio/recording projects,with producer/multi-instrumentalist Joshua Michael Ackermann, and with producer/sound engineer Dan Lesnick. Along with teaching drum lessons, I
love to supplement my income with this type of studio work. I am also presently collaborating on original material, with a newly formed rock band, yet to be named. I am very excited about this and hope to get in the studio and to be gigging, in the near future!

I am looking to add dedicated students to my current roster. I took private instruction, studying under two EXCELLENT drummers from the Detroit Metro area: Darryl Pierce and Donny Gruendler. Mr. Pierce (among many other accomplishments) currently tours internationally and nationally with a well known artist by the name of Bettye LaVette. This group has made frequent television appearances, including: David Letterman and Austin City Limits. Mr. Gruendler, is currently the Vice President of Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, and he has been featured in several Modern Drummer publications.

I have learned a great deal through private instruction, and therefore teach from experience. I utilize and apply many of the techniques that I personally found useful; through my own private instruction. References from teachers, students, producers, and bandmates can be provided on request.

Mike is a great drummer! He helped me with basic rhythm and techniques to build my skills. One unique benefit is Mike offers students to practice at his studio (for a fee) before/after the lesson. This was super helpful to me since I don't have an acoustic drum set and practicing right afterwards kept the material fresh on my mind. He also explains music concepts very clearly, and answers my questions in depth! I would recommend him to all ages for drum lessons!

Experienced drum teacher of 7 years! My lesson plan is simple : 1. we warm up with basic beats + rudiments + paradiddles, 2. we focus on rhythm + proper technique, and 3. we play a song that incorporates the techniques we're working on.

The time devoted to each portion of the lesson is totally adjustable. You will learn what you want to learn at your own pace.

I could not ask for more in a teacher. Ryan is amazing in every way. He has been teaching my 4 year old son the drums for nearly a year. When my son started lessons, he was actually below the minimum age for students, but he shared a passion for music that Ryan was willing to cultivate and be patient with.

Ryan is versatile in his teaching methods, creative, open, patient. Teaching a young student, Ryan adjusted to teaching music reading fundamentals with colors and shapes. He also figured out ways to correct, critique and build all the while building a young child's confidence.

Ryan provides a written evaluation of our son annually and has him prepare for two public recitals a year. Ryan integrates modern technology into the lessons to quickly provide feedback and create customized beats and tempos to practice to.

Above all, Ryan smiles and laughs. He makes every lesson pleasant and we treasure him, truly.

I'm a 22 year old guy who had no experience in the drum world. I found Randy through a mutual friend and asked if he could teach me. I knew he has played drums for close to 20 years and I thought he would be a great option. That was literally the best decision I've ever made. He made things so easy for me to learn. I'm now playing every week at different churches all over houston and even being booked for studio gigs. The way he teaches is so easy to understand. If you have trouble with it, not to worry, he can make it even easier for you until you do understand. He is a genius when it comes to drums. One of the best in my personal opinion and I'm sure others as well. I highly recommend him to anyone who has no idea what they're doing around the kit and even people that think they have it all figured out. Randy is for sure the way to go!

She teaches to the capabilities of the student (however good or not so good they are playing that particular day), is encouraging, very professional, yet personable. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and I look like a hero for finding such a good online teacher. :>) As I had hoped, this beats the heck out of dealing with a local teacher's schedule, dealing with driving traffic and having to find some way to kill 45-60 minutes while I wait on her to finish a lesson locally. 5 Stars for our new friend up North!

She demonstratesd the beats several times to ensure that I got it so when I practice, I practice correctly. So far, so good!

Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!
