My lessons are Fun and Laid back. I always enjoy hearing about what music you love and what makes you excited about drums. This will help to keep the lessons fun while informative at the same time. In my opinion, it is very important to make sure you don't feel as though learning drums is like homework - Its not!

Hi, My name is Mike and I originally hail from Sydney, Australia where I began playing music at a very young age.

My goal as your teacher is to provide you with an education of MUSIC. At the end of the day, every sound we create weather it be on a a trash can or a banjo is music, hence the focus of my lessons. I love to focus on your natural ability and help you grow as fast as possible via techniques that are catered to your level of experience and ability. I began my education with my uncle, Robbie (John Zorn, Mike Patton, Oren Ambarchi), who is an acclaimed drummer and sound artist. Alongside a variety of free jazz/experimental ...
It's a common misconception people have that when they take music lessons, they will end up with an awkward teacher who spends more time showing off than teaching them anything.

I was born in Argentina. I began playing bass when I was ten years old, while my younger brother began playing drums. I started taking bass classes, and also formed several bands as a bass player, although the drums had always been sounding in the back of my head. After listening to Tool’s Danny Carey and Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, at the age of 17, I realized the drums were my true love, and began studying the instrument. I continued playing bass in several bands, until I joined the band The Evenfall as a drummer, in 2009. At this time, my family was considering moving to the U.S, and that's when I got the chance to apply to the Berklee College of Music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2012 with a degree in Drumset Performance. There I studied with the most respected drummers and ...
