I had the pleasure of taking drum lessons from Mike for 5 years and the lessons were outstanding. I had been playing off and on for many years and decided that I wanted to get to the next level.


I met Mike at the drum show in St. Charles and 2 weeks later I was at my 1st lesson. Forget about those music store lessons, go to this guy if you want to do it right.

My daughter has taken lessons from Mike for 5 years on and off.  Mike is an amazing and creative teacher who uses video to help the students learn.


She has played local events, showcased a high school event, and is now lead drummer in a Cornerstone Band.  Another student we know, Aaron Martinez is touring and on Pandora radio he was also a student for a few years and worked for Mike as a student teacher.


Mike has become like family and really gives 100% to his students and company.  You can't go wrong with his instruction.

Mike is a gifted teacher and artist whose method allows students to learn quickly and easily. He supports his students in their musical endeavors outside of lessons and is a positive role model.

Great teacher and very patient! My 4 year old son started lessons with him this year and absolutely loves it. Mike really makes it enjoyable for him.
