Mickey V. has worked as a private teacher for the last 5 years and taught over 40 students of varying ages and skill levels. She is an enthusiastic, warm, and lively teacher who is dedicated to helping her students find their own passion for the instrument. Her overall approach is to equip the student with the technical skills, personal motivation, and creative tools to discover and develop their own voice on the instrument. She guides students towards reaching their own musical goals while also helping to influence, inspire, & expose students to new ideas, techniques, & styles.

V. is also interested in the therapeutic aspects of learning to play an instrument. She studied the therapeutic potentials of music at The Evergreen State College and incorporates this knowledge into her approach to teaching lessons. Some examples of this are:

-Improving the student’s posture while drumming, and therefore improving their overall posture in day to day life. Proper posture can lead to many

Mickey is an incredible teacher who has helped me grow immensely as a musician through their personalized and encouraging approach. Mickey met me exactly where I was at when I first started lessons and has known throughout our time together exactly where I need to be challenged and where I need extra support which has helped me better understand my own progress as a learner. I had been taking lessons with Mickey for a year in-person when we switched to virtual and the quality and attention to detail Mickey provides in our lessons has not been affected in the least. Mickey is a patient and engaging teacher and I can not recommend taking lessons with Mickey enough!
Catherine
Mickey is awesome! We only got the opportunity to do one in-person class before we had to go virtual, and she adopted very well and very quickly to that format. When I expressed frustration at how difficult it felt for me to learn certain things, she would quickly adjust her method or way of teaching that particular skill, or slow it down a bit and break it down more, so I was able to look at things from a different angle and more easily understand them. For me that's huge because I can get down on myself really easily if I don't pick something up quickly. I truly can't recommend her enough.
Michele.
Mickey is an exceptional teacher- patient and adaptable, she knows how to communicate precise technique down to the smallest detail. No small feat considering we’re working virtually. Each lesson feels like I’ve got more usable tools and techniques. She’s equally effective at explaining theory both abstract and in practical terms. Would highly recommend (and have already) to anyone thinking about hittin the drums.

Beginner
I'm not currently taking beginner drum students. Please refer to my studio partner Melissa:
https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62

Intermediate
Start to learn about polyrhythms as well as developing your ears and body to play songs more accurately. Start to spice up your playing with ways that are interesting, but not intrusive.

Advanced
Really push your polyrhythms and add asymmetrical meters to your repertoire to expand your grasp of complex rhythms. Also learn to use dynamics, cymbal work, and fills to effectively communicate and lead a band without words.

*Disclaimer* I'm currently not taking beginner students on bass, drums, piano, and ukulele or children under 10 years old. I highly recommend my studio partners Melissa though. Please check out her profile: https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62 My Background I've been playing with

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

My son has been learning the drums with Mr. Ryan for almost 5 years. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher! Mr. Ryan is kind, funny, patient, and knowledgeable. I don't think you could ask for any more in a teacher! Due to the pandemic, we've shifted to online learning for the past year and it has been such a blessing to be able to continue our learning. Without skipping a beat, Mr. Ryan has created an effortless way for students to learn online. We highly recommend lessons with Mr. Ryan. It's easier now than ever!

Ryan was knowledgeable, kind, and prepared. He found common ground that had my 8-year old engaged and followed up right after the first lesson. Looking forward to seeing my kid grow in his excitement.

I've been teaching beginning and intermediate drum students on and off for the last 15 years, and I'm excited to take on more students at this time. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Learn drum set so you can play in a band, get going on rudiments and make the snare line, focus on orchestral technique, or get a mix of whatever interests you.

I take time to understand how you learn best, and teach to your personal goals, whether that's doing well in school music programs, having fun on your own, or playing with others with professional aspirations.

Chance
Andy is an excellent instructor.

My 14 year old son had been playing drums for an hour or more every day for several months, and was making fair progress. He was convinced he could learn the drums on his own. But between his first and second lesson he improved exponentially. We were clearly going down the right path.

While my son was uncomfortable with the idea of taking lessons from someone he didn’t really know, Andy established a strong rapport with him by the end of lesson 1. And he was very eager to come back for lesson 2.

We intend to continue lessons with Andy for the foreseeable future.
