Music is a subject that anyone can relate to. Playing and performing music is a dream that many people aspire. I have watched my students grow from complete beginners to taking stages in front of a large audience.

I am always thorough about teaching my students the basics: understanding proper technique, dynamics, rhythm, and timing. I teach my students to play to a metronome, read music and rhythms, play songs, and play along with other live musicians. I specialize in many various genres of music including funk, rock, pop, hip-hop, jazz, Latin, prog, and metal. Over time, you will learn to play like the professionals that inspire you.

If you are interested in picking up the sticks and becoming a drummer, my classes are for you! My lessons are designed for beginner drummers and (if interested) will evolve into ensemble training to prepare you for writing, performing and recording with other musicians. I have had students as young as five and some well into their eighties, it's never too late to learn something new. Schedule your first drum lesson today!

Note: Please contact me with your preferred lesson day and time as the listed availability is subject to change due to holidays and studio projects.

About Mike

Craig
He made it fun and easy to learn and covered many different styles. Other instructors/schools that I've worked with are really geared towards casual learners, but Mike covers the whole spectrum.
Penny
5/5 Highly recommended! Mike taught me years ago and he gave me the confidence I couldn't manage to find on my own! I'm no spring chicken, but I really wanted to groove on the drums and I found the best instructor out there!
Tyler
Mike is the best teacher I've had and made learning a fun and productive experience. After a few lessons at my local music store I wasn't sure I'd continue my pursuit of drumming, but after meeting with Mike thanks to a friends referral I'm happy to say I've gone from a shy learner to a confident musician that actively plays with a band.

Excellent teaching style! My son has learned so much in the past year, in how to master the drums, more than ever! Obviously, Murray loves what he does and is at the master level. My son gets so many compliments whenever he plays. Murray is just a caring, compassionate, and decent person.

Murray has been the Best Drum Teacher EVER! I have been through 4ish teachers and when I found Murray he helped me be able to play for my church! He will teach you multiple kinds of rhythms, beats, songs and grooves. And he has such a good attitude through every mistake I make! If you want a drum teacher who will teach you everything he can, and maybe some stuff he doesn't know, then Murray is the instructor for you!

"Al is an awesome teacher.

When I was looking for a drumming teacher for my son, I looked at several of the teachers' profiles. I thought that Al's profile was the best fit for my son who had no experience in drumming, and my son has learned so much from Al. Al is a wonderful teacher and very patient. He adjusts to the likes and needs of his students. I like that Al is a professional musician/performer and brings that experience to the table too."

"Chuck has been teaching my son drums for several years now. In addition to being an accomplished musician and sound board technician in his own right, Chuck is also a great drum teacher and all around friendly guy.

I have seen my son’s drumming improve drastically over the last few years while he’s been under Chuck’s tutelage. Chuck has also taught my son how to mix his drumming with other instrument tracks on the sound board in order to create CDs and MP3s to send to his grandfather.

If you want a drum teacher who approaches his craft in a spirit of excellence, Chuck Reichel from Sound Picture Studio is the instructor for you!"
