Your time and money is too precious to waste on a mediocre teacher. My students get results from the very first lesson. For over 20 years I've helped students of all ages go far beyond their goals; whether it's learning a favorite song, getting in a band, winning music scholarships, or learning music for school ensembles.
Students learn on the same high end equipment I use professionally.
My studio is always ready to record HD audio/video so students can capture their progress.

About Gerald M.

Not all teachers are the same. I've had great success as a student and a teacher; making me the best choice to help aspiring drummers reach their goals.

Experience

Studio Session Drummer
Jan 2004 - Present

Myles Of Drums

I've gained experience from hundreds of recording sessions and years of learning the "ins and outs" of producing. These skills came together resulting in my own online recording business. I've done countless sessions for musicians around the entire planet.

Professional Drummer
Sep 1992 - Present

Self Employed, Walt Disney World, Cirque Du Soliel, US Army, & many others

My first paying gig happened way back in 10th grade. Since then, I've played around the world with countless bands and artists. There's a few residencies I've held over the years that I am especially proud of. Walt Disney World (I played in 2 full-time bands and subbed in a few others at the #1 tourist destination in the world.) Cirque Du Soliel - La Nauba (For 4 years, I played to sellout crowds who payed to see the most exciting show on the planet.) The Volunteers (I spent 4 unbelievable years touring the US with the Army's top show band. We played some of the greatest events imaginable like the last game at Yankee Stadium to the President's inauguration - attended by over 3 million people.) Each one these entities held national auditions to fill their drum chair. I'm honored to have won these and several others over the span of my career.
