Gregory is a great teacher! Clearly has a love for what he does and teaching others his craft. He's super supportive and brings a great energy to your lessons. More than willing to go above and beyond for his students. He helped me immensely with my voice.

Mike A.

North Hollywood, CA

About Mike

Hi,
My name is Mike and I originally hail from Sydney, Australia where I began playing music at a very young age. Growing up I was surrounded by a wealth of musicianship and left-wing instrumentation, which ended up playing a key role in my development as a drummer.
My goal as your teacher is to provide you with an education of MUSIC. At the end of the day, every sound we create weather it be on a a trash can or a banjo is music, hence the focus of my lessons. I love to focus on your natural ability and help you grow as fast as possible via techniques that are catered to your level of experi
ence and ability.

I began my education with my uncle, Robbie (John Zorn, Mike Patton, Oren Ambarchi), who is an acclaimed drummer and sound artist. Alongside a variety of free jazz/experimental musicians from around the world, at age 8, I performed at the famous experimental music festival What Is Music?.

At age 11 I studied with Claire Edwardes, an internationally renowned Australian classical percussionist. During this time I participated and ranked in several national classical percussion competitions. After attending one of Sydney's most prestigious performing arts schools, I was granted a scholarship to the Australian Institute of Music. I graduated with high distinctions having majored in Contemporary Performance and Jazz.

2009 saw my signing with the band Porcelain (Universal/Motown Music) and in 2010 I won the Billy Hyde Drummers Playoff in Sydney, Australia. Shortly after, I moved to Los Angeles, California.

Since the age of 15 I have been playing professionally as a multi-instrumentalist in many different genres. Artists I have worked with include; Emblem3 (SyCo Records), Scott Weiland, Troy Harley (Dream Merchant 21), Colby O' Donis (Grammy Award Winner), Rai Thistlethwayte (Thirsty Merc), Reece Mastin (X-Factor Winner - Sony Music Australia), Danielle Blakey (2011 NA2R Winner), Casey Donovan (Australian Idol winner), Amy Pearson (Sony/BMG), Renee Cassar (Island/Universal), Alamode (Jazz/Funk), Jordan Millar (Blues/Pop), Amali Ward (MusicOz Winner), KisTone (Rock), and ASA Songwriter of the year Simon Shapiro amongst others.

While traveling between Sydney and Los Angeles, I have been working on sessions with producers such as: Lindsay Rimes (Benji Madden, The McClymonts, Shannon Noll), Rudy Haeusermann (Snoop Dogg, Matchbox 20, Tina Turner, Rob Zombie), Paul David Hager (All-American Rejects, Lifehouse), Charlie Waymire (Ultimate Rhythm Studios) and John Fields (Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, Switchfoot).

In addition to session work, I recently composed, recorded and produced songs for the feature films Yesterday Was a Lie and Center Stage 2 -Turn It Up, as well as a theme for Fox Sports and 2 web and U.S. national radio campaigns for Outback Steakhouse.

I am currently touring across the U.S. with Emblem 3. I'm endorsed by Ludwig Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Remo Drumheads and Vater Drumsticks.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are Fun and Laid back. I always enjoy hearing about what music you love and what makes you excited about drums. This will help to keep the lessons fun while informative at the same time. In my opinion, it is very important to make sure you don't feel as though learning drums is like homework - Its not!

I use a wide range of books and teaching techniques that have helped me over the years to reach my goal as a Touring and Recording professional. I like to treat my students with the same respect I was given and pass on the knowledge that I believed played an integral roll in my success!

Whatever your goals are, I strive to make sure you achieve them as fast as possible so you can spend less time on the practice pad and more time rocking!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio: 6 x Acoustic Drum Sets - One for the student and One for me to demonstrate.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide drum pads. I would expect my students to have a drum kit and sticks or the equivalent materials.

*** Specialties ***
I am a multi-instrumentalist so I teach all aspects of music. My aim is to make sure that all students understand the concepts of music and can portray that through their instrument.

Drum
Patient, reliable, talented drummer & teacher

Mike has been our 13 year old daughters drum teacher for over a year. She went through a couple of teachers before we found mike who was able to connect with her. We thought drumming would be a great way to bolster her self esteem and work on her shyness. Mike has been an extremely patient teacher and found a away to work with her where others failed. Overall, mike is an extremely talented drummer & patient teacher who is both honest and punctual. I wish I could give more than five stars.

Guitar · In studio
Verified Student
The guitar is the instrument with which I have developed bad habits and posture over the years, but in addition to correcting these things, I really needed help with music theory. Also, as opposed to being a kid with all the time in the world to practice and study, I'm a 40-something with a busy, full-time job in the middle of my daily life. De'Anza was flexible enough to work with these issues of mine while still keeping me focused on a positive, effective lesson plan. That is the mark of a professional. Thank you De'Anza!

She Inspires my daughter to want to learn and to grow as a musician. In the last few months of studying with De'anza, my daughter has notably improved vocally as well as learned so much more.

Two lessons in, I can officially confirm that Keith is an AMAZING teacher (and person to boot).

My piano background was a little questionable beforehand (primarily self-taught via YouTube), but having someone as talented and encouraging as Keith tailoring a lesson plan specifically for me has already exponentially improved my technique. Your search for a teacher ends here. Five stars. :)
