Private Lessons



Whether you’re just starting out, have been playing for a while, private lessons are an investment in your future.

I offer private drum and music theory lessons in the comfort of my state-of-the-art practice studio.

What to expect from Private Lessons


Side-by-side instruction

The practice studio has two drum kits set up side-by-side so my students can easily see and follow instructions.

I have had the pleasure of being taught by Mike for over three years. Mike is an outstanding teacher. If you are looking for a drum instructor, I recommend Nick without reservation.

Balanced lesson plans

Each lesson usually consists of music theory and song/rhythm teachings.

I have been taking lessons with Mike for four years, and I am amazed at how I have gone from playing simple grooves to playing actual live performances. Everything that Mike has taught me, from reading music to proper techniques, has helped me to become a better musician.

Waiting area for chaperones

Enjoy waiting inside on sofas our outside at picnic tables.

Note: We permit a max of one child per adult in the waiting area. Thank you for following this rule!

My 9 year old started taking lessons about 6 months ago. Mike is great with him. Would recommend for any age.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to have drumming experience?

No! Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna . Ut enim ad minim veniam.

Do I need to own a drum kit?

Yes. There are less expensive electronic sets that work great for beginners. You will need a drum kit to practice in between lessons.

I recommend heading to a local music store to explore sticks and kits in person. Some of my favorites:
