Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, and blues, among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some rhythm theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

I believe that each person is drawn to the drums for different reasons; some have dreams of performing in stadiums for thousands of people, others simply want to be able to play along to their favorite records in the garage on a Sunday afternoon. Whatever your goals are, my goal as a teacher is to always keep sight of your initial motivations for drumming, craft an individual plan to help you get there, and to have some fun along the way! (All styles & levels welcome)

It has been a pleasure to begin to learn to play the drums with Zach. He has made the lessons immensely enjoyable and given me the time and space to master one element of drumming before on to another.
Karen
Zach is not only a kick-ass drummer, he’s a great teacher too. I never thought of myself as musically inclined but after six months of lessons with Zach I have changed my tune. Thanks to Zach’s patience, kindness and skill, I’m actually learning how to play the drums at age 45! I look forward to my lessons every week and highly recommend Zach to aspiring drummers of any age.
Luis
Zach has been my drum instructor for a little over a year now, and after stopping playing for several years beforehand I foun Zach, I thank him helping he rebuild my passion for rocking out! He never fails to take his time with me and break down certain beats, songs, etc, whenever I’m having trouble getting the grasp of things. He makes his classes very personal and it’s clear how much he cares for how I perform and how much I understand what I’m doing

Mike is a great teacher. He has a unique way to teach kids. I really enjoy learning from him along with my child. I highly recommend him.
Memo Oelke, age 12
Mike is a very good drummer and a very good instructor! I'm a student and it's a very fun, productive time, and just an all around good experience. All the songs I am/have learned are awesome and it's not confusing. In fact, its the exact opposite. If you ever have a question it isn't awkward or uncomfortable. All the songs I learn fit in my music taste and the way he teaches is very simple and I feel like i have made an incredible amount of progress. I can't wait for next lesson!

Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!

I have a background in fundamental rhythm, rather than teaching the student to simply play, I teach them to read and write their own rhythms and drum beats in a fun and hands-on manner using methods that music teachers around the country use in their classrooms. Furthermore, I have years of experience teaching children as young as 4 years old from their very first lesson. I’ve developed my own method for children to read drum music using simple and an easy to understand rhythmic language.

About Trevor

No drums? No problem! We can get you started with a pair of sticks and a practice pad. My name is Trevor and I’m excited to help you learn to play drums and percussion. I have over a decade of experience teaching and playing percussion. I hold a Masters in Music Business with a focus on percussi

"I am 14 years old and have been taking drum lessons for about 6 years from Mr. Mike. I don’t think I can find the words to say how awesome he is! I only liked drumming when I started with Mr. Mike, but he has inspired me to absolutely love drumming. He has been the only drum teacher I have ever had I would be crushed if I ever lost him as my teacher. He takes the time to teach me the music I love to play and learn. He also teaches me the not so fun stuff like reading music and rudiments to make me a great drummer. No matter what Mr. Mike teaches me, he always makes it fun. I look forward to my lessons with Mr. Mike; he is simply the best!

Mr. Mike is not only my drum teacher, he is also my friend. Every time I arrive at his studio, he always asks me about my life and how I’ve been, and he makes me laugh all the time. I hardly remember my life before Mr. Mike. I look up to him, and he has always been a great role model to me. Mr. Mike has inspired me to be as accomplished as he is on the drums when I grow up. Even when I am struggling to learn hard parts, he is always supportive and helps me through it. Mr. Mike never makes me feel bad about myself; in fact, he has made me more confident not only as a drummer but as a person. I think the world of Mr. Mike. I think he has helped to shape me to be the person I am today.

Mr. Mike is one of the kindest and warm-hearted people I have ever met. He inspires me to be the best drummer I can be. Mr. Mike is a huge part of my life, and I hope he always will be. I am so lucky to have him as my teacher. They don’t make words to express how highly I recommend him to be your drum teacher."
