Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Private Drum Teacher

I'm inspired to impart a vibrant love for the art of drumming to my students. I value giving students a strong foundation in the fundamentals of rhythm, technique and all styles of music, as well as exploring the individual and creative interests of each of my students.

I have degree in Music Education from CU Boulder (2012) with a special interest in jazz studies, improvisation and classical percussion. I also have thorough experience with traditional Indian spiritual music known as kirtan. I have taught middle school music in Denver public schools as well as privately for ages ranging 7-30. Studied with various professional musicians around Colorado, including Paul Romaine, Mike Marlier, Brad Goode, John Gunther and Doug Walter.

All in all, music is an art form meant for cultivating the human spirit and enriching life. My desire is to impart this gift to my students through the art form of drums, rhythm and creativity.

About Bryan

I see all music, and drumming specifically as a very special gift. They are art forms that bring greater value into our life, providing opportunity for growth, strength and resilience. And they're FUN! I have been playing drums in a variety of different areas for over 15 years throughout my yo

About Will

Will Fletcher Instruction has been going strong since 2009. New students starting this year are doing great along w all the older, more musically advanced students. I want you to play music.

Great for beginners!
Eban P.
Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.

"After previously taking lessons from a different teacher who unfortunately moved away , I began taking lessons from Mike when I was about twelve years old. Mike is a very generous and caring teacher, and quickly saw that I had room for improvement. Within the first month, I learned more than I had ever before, from sight reading music, basic rudiments, timing skills, and how important drums really are as an instrument. His great teaching skills and support eventually led me to become accepted in The Academy of the Performing Arts at Huntington Beach High School. I learn something new from him each lesson and improve on numerous skills that interest me such as Latin, Jazz, Funk, and Pop music. From my first days taking lessons with him to now, I have grown tremendously as a musician. If anyone needs a skilled and trusted drum teacher, Mike is your best option. Over the past several years taking lessons with Mike, I now view him not only as a teacher and instructor, but as a friend too."
