My son has been learning the drums with Mr. Ryan for almost 5 years. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher! Mr. Ryan is kind, funny, patient, and knowledgeable. I don't think you could ask for any more in a teacher! Due to the pandemic, we've shifted to online learning for the past year and it has been such a blessing to be able to continue our learning. Without skipping a beat, Mr. Ryan has created an effortless way for students to learn online. We highly recommend lessons with Mr. Ryan. It's easier now than ever!

Ryan was knowledgeable, kind, and prepared. He found common ground that had my 8-year old engaged and followed up right after the first lesson. Looking forward to seeing my kid grow in his excitement.

Trey is an excellent instructor. He is patient, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. I tried on my own and was going to give up but Trey has shown me that I can learn to play bass and given me a more productive insight towards my future goals.

Private Drum Teacher

I started studying the Drums when I was a teenager. I wanted to learn in order to improve my rhythm and timing on the guitar but I fell in love with the drums and continued private lessons and studied on my own so that I could create and record my own material. I started teaching in 2009 and have worked with over 100 students. Some of my favorite drummers are Chad Smith from RHCP's, Dave Grohl from Nirvana and Foo Fighters, Jimmy Chamberlin from Smashing Pumpkins, Roger Taylor from Queen, and many many more.
There is not just one book that will give you everything you need so I teach from a number of books by different companies like Alfred, KJOS, Hal Leonard, Railroad media, song books, to individual pieces from music notes. I also create, print, and email custom lessons created on a program in my Mac.
I use Pearl drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Roland electronic set, Sabian pad, LP cow bell and bongos, Vick Firth sticks, Tama Iron cobra double bass pedal, Evens and Remo heads.

Christian was very careful as I knew nothing about music. He explained the guitar’s basic function in language that I can understand. I am more enthusiastic about playing than I thought possible.
Braylon C.
A great instructor. Very patient with my son who has never touched a piano before. Very knowledgeable about all types of music and different instruments. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for lessons.
Emmett S.
My son Emmett is always excited to spend time with Christian! Each lesson is well organized and they cover a lot of material focusing both on skills and fun items. Technology part of things can be challenging but Christian each weeks puts the time in to make the experience better for all of us. We are having a wonderful time and learning a lot.

We will develop solid time, technique, reading, and rudiments. To foster musicality we will focus on critical listening . We will focus on effective practicing to maximize our efforts. We will learn to apply rudiments and stickings around the drums for interesting and dynamic fills. We will play together to focus on listening and ensemble skills. We also have the ability to record our lessons for later review.

About Aaron

In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student. I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus.

"Mike is one of 4 drum teachers to enter my son Larry’s life, and absolutely the best one. Larry has shown more improvement in the last 6 months with Mike than in the last 4 years combined with all of his previous teachers.

As my son has a disability, it is often hard to find a teacher that can not only help him to find enjoyment and enthusiasm, but treat him like the serious musician he is. The best part of his teaching… Larry doesn’t even realize he’s learning. To him, they just jam.

I’ve seen my son grow not just as a drummer, but as a musician and student since Mr. Mike became his instructor. Now, he can listen better, play better, and have more fun on his instrument. I am very grateful for Mr. Mike’s patience, compassion, and skill set as a drum instructor and for the confidence he brought to my son."

"I came to Craig as an adult, with little to no musical training and was hesitant to take lessons because I had no idea what expect. In the time I have worked with him I have learned to sight read, play along to songs , have a strong grasp on the fundamentals and work on improvisation. He continually challenges me to try new things and expand my vocabulary. As an instructor Craig is professional, non judgmental, patient and is an experienced teacher. A lot of people can play drums, being able to teach others is an entirely different skill."

"I took up drums 2 years ago in my early 40's. Francisco was my first drum teacher, and he patiently introduced me to the instrument, exposed me to many different musical concepts and traditions, and really increased my interest in music and drumming. He is an amazing player, and I learned much from watching him play in lessons and also live. Unfortunately he moved from Boston to CA, which was my loss.I reccommend him without reservation."
