Josh is an exceptional teacher. At first, I was not confident at all with my playing; I didn't know where to start. But once we began our lessons, he instilled the confidence in me that I needed to get to the next level. He is communicative, friendly, and professional. I would recommend his lessons to anyone who wants a great, dedicated teacher!

I think playing music should be about having fun. Lessons are often linked to visions of people sitting down with an instrument and trying to drill a very difficult piece of music over and over until they can play it right. However, my number one goal every time I sit behind an instrument is to have fun and I try to express that to all my students. A music lesson should be an environment in which one can really test themselves, while at the same time, wear a smile on their face and enjoying the art of learning. Their is nothing more satisfying to a teacher than seeing the gears in a student's head start to roll when they are learning something. Then seeing the look on their face when they finally get it is amazing. A proud expression immediately illuminates them after they realize they have climbed a mountain. The benefit is not only the fact that they have reached the top of the mountain, but the climb lead to a wide open space of possibilities.
In my opinion, the drums are fun for ...

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.

About Daniel

I'm a gigging musician and teacher who graduated from Oberlin College in May 2015 with a degree in Musical Studies. I pride myself on patience and empathy no matter what I teach, whether it be feeling the pulse of a complicated drum groove or polishing up a piano piece for the first time. For musi

Awesome teacher! Not just a great drummer, but patient and articulate. He was really able to help me understand and execute in ways I never could before. Seems like he would also be great with kids...super patient and encouraging!
Janna R.
David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

"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."

I am a new drummer and he thought me and my two boys on how to drum and now after about a year we can actually enjoy drumming and we are having a blast. My older has special needs and I am so impressed that he will actually come and play the drums on his own now which would have never happened without Matthews teaching. My younger boy is doing so well too. We will continue to take lesson even with our busy schedules since we really enjoy our lessons with Matthew. Thank you Matthew."
