About Michael R.

A lifetime teacher who will help inspire you to meet your goals.

As a jazz drummer, I have performed with many great artists such as Red Holloway, Sacha Boutros, Cathy Segal-Garcia, Gaea Schell, Anne Farnsworth, and latin group De La Bahia. I have over 10 years experience teaching private lessons at the Drum Circuit and Music Motive, in San Luis Obispo, CA. As a ukulele player, I have studied all genres and perform with The SLO Strummers. In addition, my non-threatening teaching style works well with special needs.

I look forward to work and play music with you, Michael R.

Mike is very approachable and makes learning easy. I tried to learn the ukulele on my own and it was overwhelming and frustrating. He is very knowledgeable and is experienced in a variety of music, including drums. In every lesson, my skills and confidence improve! Mike is the best!

I have worked with Mike both as a musician and a teacher for over 10 years. As a musician, Mike is professional, he has a great ear, sensibility and solid time. I always enjoy working with him because he is so easy to get along with and he has a great sense of humor. As a teacher, Mike will be able to assess your learning style and utilize all teaching and learning strategies. His demeanor is calm, patient and he really cares about his students.

Sincerely, Julius A
