I've been playing drums for 15+ years and have studied with the following great drummers: Jeffrey Kraus, Peter Jarvis, Joel Rosenblatt, Kimberly Thompson, Dom Famularo, and Stephane Chamberland.

Throughout high school and college, I played in percussion ensembles and rock bands, performing throughout New York City and New London. Currently, I write and play my own music for a solo project called East River Soundtracks.

I offer drum lessons for beginners that cover all of the basics necessary for you to become not only a great drummer but a great MUSICIAN. The curriculum will consist of four main pillars: technique, groove, reading, and musicianship.

I absolutely LOVE this instrument and am excited to help you get started on it!

All best,

Drum · In studio

Michi is a GREAT drum teacher! He is very technical and knows how to teach you the basic motions of drumming that will prevent you from become injured as you become more advance. He's also very down to earth and open to modifying lessons to suit your needs - for example... I wanted to learn technique but also how to do basic grooves so I could play along with music on my own and with friends. I learned a lot and had fun hanging out with him. Highly recommend! Thanks Michi!
