Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
If you are interested in picking up the sticks and becoming a drummer, my classes are for you! My lessons are designed for beginner drummers and (if interested) will evolve into ensemble training to prepare you for writing, performing and recording with other musicians. I have had students as young as five and some well into their eighties, it's never too late to learn something new.

Mike is an awesome teacher. He was really flexible with our schedule, and helped both of us starting at different skill levels and goals. He is well worth the money if you are serious about wanting to become a better drummer!

Started my lessons with Mike having some previous experience, but still a beginner. He broadened my knowledge on styles and helped me get to the point to where I was able to join a band and start gigging.

A couple of friends and I had a music idea, but didn't know how to execute it correctly. We went to Mike, and he crafted the perfect drum pattern for us to record to. Mike also gave us a cool direction for the song as well. He's extremely knowledgeable on musical instruments and very patient with whoever he's working with. I highly recommend Mike as a teacher!

Mike Marshall. Amazing drummer, wide range of style, overall great guy. He will sit down with you discuss your goals and be certain you're both a good fit. He spent some time with my son and realized that he didn't really need lessons. He recommended more practice rather than soaking us for lessons. 10/10 highly recommend.

I thought he was awesome! I told him what I wanted out of learning how to play the drums and I even brought in a CD to show him a song I desperately wanted to learn. After lessons with him and never playing the drums before that I was playing my favorite songs pretty confidently!
