Private Drum Teacher

Hello! I specialize in teaching younger beginners ages 5-12 the basics of drumming in a way that helps your child locate and develop their innate musical senses and skills. I help kids learn how to "feel" music naturally and how to "speak" the musical language with ease. I focus my lessons on fun experiences that can't help but lead kids down a path of musical discovery and development.

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!
Kelsey
Michael is extremely knowledgable about all things drum, percussion, and music, and has a gift for explaining and conceptualizing music in ways that are easy to understand. He is my go-to for ANY music related question or discussion. Michael is an excellent and experienced teacher and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn drums or more about music.

My son loves his lessons with Mr. Mike! He makes it fun with the music that my son chooses while still learning new skills to improve his drum playing! Since my son has his school online too, Mr. Mike's flexibility with scheduling has made it easy for all of us!

I attended Berklee College of Music with drum set as my principal instrument. Drumming is a huge passion of mine and I have an appreciation for many genres. From pop to death metal, I love playing it all and want to teach you how to engage with your favorite music! I can teach you a classical snare piece, or we can learn math rock. I can get you comfortable behind a kit so that you can play the music that moves you! PLEASE NOTE: I do not have a drum set at my studio, all lessons would need to be in-home.

Online Drum Teacher

I have 17 years experience performing drum set, hand drums, mallets and many other percussion instruments. I received a Bachelor's in Music for Percussion Performance and Music Education from the Sacramento State School of Music and I received my Master's in Music for Percussion Performance from the University of Nevada, Reno. I have experience teaching in public schools (high school and middle school levels), the collegiate level, music camps, and I have maintained a private studio for over two years. I have a method of teaching based on what you want to learn while also going over technique, posture, musicianship and music theory. My teaching is based entirely on the student as many people have different ways of learning so I do my best to make myself clear. My goal is to make lessons fun and informative, so let's enjoy the journey of making music!

My son, now in 8th grade, has been taking private lessons with Trevor for over 2 years now. We have had lessons both in person and on line. My son has grown & matured quite a bit working with Trevor and is currently 1st chair at his school. We highly recommend Trevor!
Norm
I've had the pleasure knowing Mr. Trevor Hall as a colleague for the past 7 years at Cazadero Music Camp. He serves as the percussion specialist on the music faculty. He is an outstanding teacher, is a wonderful musician on tuned and untuned percussion, and set drums. His ability to communicate with students is superlative, and he is an effective teacher with sound pedagogical skills. I have personally observed Trevor working with the percussion students each summer at Cazadero. It didn't matter if the student was a young beginner or an advanced high school percussionist. Trevor inspires all of his percussion students throughout the summer and school year. I highly recommend this music educator.

"Brian is one of the most gifted drummers I've ever met. His teaching style is extremely relaxed. Every time I meet with him, he puts me at ease. Brian makes learning an instrument fun. His approach is direct and straight to the point. He's also very perceptive and focuses specifically on what he feels I am having trouble with the most. I have been taking lessons from Brian for over a year now, and I cannot believe how much I have grown as a musician. I am even playing in front of my friends now. My confidence is high and owe it all to Brian!"
