Beginner-rudimental, intermediate and advanced concert/orchestral and marching percussion, Beginner-professional drumset. I have been playing drums since 1990. Other than snare drum in marching band, I taught myself to play drum set through various media in the 1990's such as magazines, videos and much interaction with drum & bugle corps. I specialize in DCI style marching snare and have instructed drumlines from various Oho schools. In the late 1990's I studied jazz; big band and combo style. From 2000-2006 I was a drummer in three local rock bands, one of which performed and recorded extensively.
My name is Mike and I operate out of the Dayton, OH area. I have 11 years experience teaching music in public schools and would love to have you study with me. I am a percussionist by nature, and that's where my expertise lies, but I am able to help out beginning to intermediate guitarists and pianists. I believe strongly in crafting well-rounded students and would love to have the opportunity to work with you. *** Lesson Details *** I'm pretty laid back but I expect dedication to the craft. Outside practice is essential, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. Music is to be enjoyed and so should the learning process. In the end, I'm all about helping the student reach his or her personal goals and will structure the lessons to guarantee success with that. *** Studio Equipment ...

I've been teaching Drums since 2004 and recently started back January 2013. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play all rudiments and as time goes on you'll be able to play in bands and in JH and HS bands. I typically use the Haskell Harr, and now include Alfred's Drum Method book for Snare; Tommy Igo for drum-set. His posters from Vic Firth are great resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!
