Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced drum-set player interested in learning how to keep a beat, how to set-up a drum-set, how to tune drums, how to play fills...actually you're here because you want to be a Rockstar, don't you? Ah. I see. This should be easy then.

I started playing drum-set professionally as a freshmen in high school and have never stopped. It was my first true love, and my way into my own musical voice. I also sing while performing drums, so if that's something you're interested in getting better at I have plenty of experience to help you lead from behind the set.

Whether you are planning on joining/starting a band, using it as accompaniment to someone else, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your Rockstar drummer potential! If you have any questions, please message me!

Chuck
Mikala was an absolute treat to work with. I was apprehensive about singing to my wife at our wedding reception. So I hit up take lessons and connected in under 30 minutes.

Lessons were given at her studio in her home, and over the course of 8 weeks we transformed my vocals from uncertainty, to the confidence I needed to nail my solo performance.

10/10 would recommend to anyone seeking to improve their vocals. Just make sure you do the homework she sends you with (vocal warm ups, breathing camps, and daily practice) and you'll see results in a little as the first visit.

Her personality and encouragement were absolutely infectious and really lent to an overall positive experience.
Rachel
Really great experience for our daughter working with Mikala.
Eric
Mikala was patient and encouraging, helped me learn techniques as well as have fun. A great experience!

Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.
Jeff
great first lesson. Personable and informative.
Lin
Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

All students will be expected to play from a variety of repertoire and methods in many different styles of music based on their level of playing.Outside of playing the instrument students will learn breathing exercises and will be expected to be actively listening to professional recordings. I hold my students to a high standard and expect them to always play at their best.

We begin with exercises to develop technique and train for agility, musicality and music theory. Classical music is used but not exclusively as we explore the many different genres of music! Ear training is also offered so that the student may be able to play by ear as well as reading music.

"Jillian is GREAT!

I took music theory and voice lessons with Jillian for almost 2 years (21 months) about 5 years ago. At first it was basically my parents who persuaded me to take her lessons, but I needed to take theory to help me compose music in college (which I currently attend). I knew I needed that basic knowledge and understanding if I wanted to further my personal growth and hopefully career. I've kept in contact with her periodically through the years, often bugging her for advice or suggestions (she's great at getting back to me). She really worked with me to develop the sound I wanted and helped increase my range. Jillian has this obvious love for music and I felt comfortable with her from day 1. Her high energy and genuinity made me feel relaxed and appreciative. Her enthusiasm about music, whether it be about theory, technique or performance, really inspired me and I was able to learn so much from her. Bottom line, she's amazing!"

"To say that my opera lessons with Margo have been miraculous would be an understatement. My family and friends had repeatedly encouraged me to pursue my singing and I wrote it off as hyperbole. When I finally decided to take it seriously I was afraid I was too old to start pursuing a career in the arts. Margo explained to me that some performers can be in their 30s or 40s before reaching full vocal maturity. She immediately took me under her wing which has resulted in near perfect pitch. Under her tutelage I have learned to evoke emotion from my audience thru both song and dramatization. Needless to say, her being multi-lingual has no doubt made her uniquely qualified to do so. If you want a disciplined, dedicated, no nonsense instructor, call her. You won't be disappointed."
