Hi, there! My name is Mike, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1995 having taught thousands of some of todays top drummers. *** ALL LESSONS RECORDED ON PROFESSIONAL DVD TO TAKE HOME *** That's right, I am the only instructor in the world that has a pre recorded dvd lesson plan that helps any level drum student to go from point A to point B quickly, efficiently, and effectively in every weeks practice sessions. NO WRONG WAY OF LEARNING OR MONEY WASTED with this method. If you want the best for your child or self, I am the go to guy. I started playing the drums on Christmas day 1979. I'm a fun, energetic professional and all my students respect me as I respect them with coming across as their friend someone they can trust and talk to. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I've known Mike since he was a teenager. Drumming is, and always was, his passion. You can't find a better instructor. His knowledge, experience and patience with younger children is over the top! My 5 year old grandson is a student and absolutely loves his lessons and his teacher. My rating is 5+

My child and I both share a love of drums. Unfortunately I wasn't very good at it, well at least til Mike came along. Now my son is in a band and I get to jam with them during practice. All thanks to you Mike. The take home DVD's as well really enhanced. This way we could go over what he just learned. Rock on buddy!!

Mike is a BEAST! Just by watching his videos alone I have made huge improvements. I had been playing over 20 yrs at that point, I wish I had known about Mike at an earlier point in my playing, who knows where I would be now.
