I want to make sure my students have a good time learning drums but I also want to make sure they learn a lot..! I always make sure to ask my students what they want to learn and what their favorite music is... after that, I figure out what type of lessons to plan out.

Private Drum Teacher

My teaching technique is learner-centered. I work with students to help them build a strong vocabulary of drum rudiments and have them apply their newly acquired drumming knowledge to the songs and genres that interest them most. I have found this to be ideal for those at the beginning and intermediate levels. For the advanced drummers out there, I may be able to assist with some minor application of technique or perhaps deviate from standard drumming practices to acquire a fuller awareness of the body's interaction with not only the drumsticks and drum set, but how to maintain total postural awareness.

For those interested in flamenco, I have a lifetime of experience with the rhythms of flamenco, am a professional cajón player, and study/perform flamenco guitar.

About David

Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, D

Day 1 of drumming lessons! David answered all my questions led the conversation and helped ease my need to be perfect! I am excited to practice the skills we worked on and excited to see where the next lessons go!! Thanks David for a great 1st experience!

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

I have been working with Brandon since late November 2019. I am new to drumming and having a drum teacher who is willing to come to your house to teach you on YOUR equipment. I find this to be not just convenient, but very helpful in that I find I can retain what Brandon is teaching me each lesson. Brandon is very friendly, capable and knowledgable. He has patience and never ever gets frustrated, in fact his positive reenforcement builds my confidence and keeps me engaged to continue to learn. As many folks new to drumming want to do, I wanted to 'just learn songs' and while Brandon would have done this he explained the foundational need to get the sticking, timing and coordination foundation so that we can get to my goals!

I recommend Brandon very highly. He is a nice person as well as great drum teacher. He will NOT disappoint!
Jack
Brandon is a very encouraging and welcoming teacher. He's phenomenal at breaking down ideas in many different ways to ensure you understand the content and will put you to work so that you keep progressing as a drummer!
bob
Brandon was a terrific drum instructor for my son. He's a true musician and a fantastic teacher. His technical proficiency allows him to identify potential areas of improvement in his students and help them grow. His comfort with many styles of music and professionalism make him an all around great instructor.

He's a good guy too. My son liked working with him a lot.

Our son loves his Drum lessons.

Benk is very flexible, affordable and our son took to him very well. He even records what he has learned each week so we both can keep track of his progress. He is much more affordable then other drum teachers or studio's in the area, and even will come to your home.
If you are looking for a GREAT Teacher you should take some time to talk to Benk.

"I have taken lessons with Mike for over 7 years, and getting into drumming has been the best thing that has happened in my life. Mike is an excellent teacher, who truly loves to teach. You feel his joy, he is never condescending, and he is never more than a couple steps away from making a silly joke.
Drums have given me a hobby to keep improving as I get older. It has given me a passion for music, both performing, and listening. It has also allowed me to have experiences I never would been able to have without learning the drums, such as playing in the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade, winning 1st place with my high school drumline, and making lifelong friends as part of my high school's music program.
I highly encourage to take lessons with Mike. He is the best."
