Enjoyed working with Neil. Very professional and I felt very comfortable with his teaching methods. Unfortunately I will not be able to continue my lessons with him in home since I am considered high risk for the virus. I will be canceling the remainder of my in-home lessons and picking them up at a later date

Private Drum Teacher

I've been teaching contemporary drum set in Orange County for over a decade, and many of my students have gone on to not only play and read notated drum set music with ease, but have continued their studies at arts high-schools and music colleges, with several of them continuing on to the professional world. I use an award winning curriculum used at many music academies and conservatories, and have received accolades for my ability to retain many students for many years. Within the first few lessons, a new student will be able to understand the basics of rhythm and snare drum notation, play a plethora of relatable and cool sounding grooves, and build a foundation that will serve the student for a life time.

Mr. Mike is so good at keeping our 8 year old son on track and at the same time having fun. He’s engaging and so very knowledgeable. Mike can literally play any tune of any song that our son is interested in playing. He’ll also incorporate note reading and this allows our son to have a complete and well rounded lesson.

Mike we appreciate everything you’ve done and our son loves drums even more now thanks to you.

Hello potential students! I have been teaching music for over eight years, and love teaching as much as music itself.

For all of my students regardless of age I like to teach music aurally. We will first listen to what we are trying to learn then attempt to either sing or speak the phrases of the composition. We practice each phrase with many repetitions at various tempos before we move to the instrument. We then repeat this process with our instruments. For balding technique we zoom in even further to take a closer look at the music. Breaking down phrases to their smallest parts helps to gain fluency over the musical language, mastery over the technical aspects of our instruments and develop focus. To boost our creativity we use these phrases for improvisation. During everything we practice we always focus on various tools to help us improve our musicality.I get so much joy out of teaching music. One thing that I love about it is how much I learn from my students. It is a beautiful thing to embrace your own individuality. In my lessons I encourage my students to be themselves. Each lesson is ...
