Maria & Mike M
Mike has been instructing my son for 3 years and I couldn't find a better drum teacher. From the first lesson he made my then year old feel comfortable and excited about music. Mike is adept at evaluating his students and tailoring the lesson to their level. He gives sincere and specific positive feedback, freely and often which support learning and builds confidence. When my son does not get something, with Mike's Playing or experience, he is able to suggest a different approach. (Let's try this...) to help him learn. Lessons with Mike are positive and fun, while learning to play drums and read and write music. My son looks forward to his lesson! Mike not only teaches my son drum lessons, he is a positive role model. TRY MIKE FIRST! I'm very picky and reserve reviews only for the exceptional! Mike is a treasure.
Mike is an amazing drummer and instructor! He has gone above and beyond to make sure my son is engaged and enjoying playing the drums. Mike keeps a positive attitude and his love of playing and teaching the drums comes out in his enthusiasm. He is an excellent communicator and his ability to explain and encourage my son has helped him realize his full potential. Mike not only has incredible talent and skills as a drummer, but also as one that can teach these skills (which is not an easy feat). If you are interested in learning from a true expert in the field, look no further. Mike is as good as it gets!
