About Micheal

I'm Mike and music has been my passion ever since I was very young. I play the drums long with guitar and some piano. Today I mainly play guitar but the drums were my first real passionate instrument. I believe that music speaks to all of us in some way, shape, or form. Everyone should get the chance to experience playing an instrument in their lifetime. The only teaching experience I have is teaching the Gaither High School drumline for a season of their indoor percussion line. I enjoy passing down the knowledge of music, I have built up over the years, to students who want to learn and master their passion.

In lessons I'll let you take control for the first hour of each one so you can show me what you would like to learn and improve on. Then we can work on things that you can do better. I'm an open book so you can ask me any question about your instrument or music knowledge in general. I want to ensure that you're comfortable asking me anything no matter how complicated or simple it is. My favorite thing in the world is to see that my knowledge has helped someone improve on their skills. I know for a fact that my previous teachers have had that impact on me, and I wanna be able to pass that down to you.

I know a variety of modern day styles of music eg: Rock, Metal, Progressive Rock, Pop-Punk, Alternative, Pop, Rap, Hip-Hop, Electronic, and Jazz. I've playing drums for well over 8 years, and guitar for a little over 2 years. I know my way around both instruments pretty well. I also know a lot about marching and orchestral percussion. Just recently I've been producing my own music. I know how to use recording software such as, Cubase, Logic Pro X, and Garageband. I have vast knowledge about music programs and plug-ins like amp-simulators, drum-simulators, synths, and many others. I write all of my own songs mainly instrumentals consisting of guitar, bass, drums, and synths.

If you have a strong passion for music and urge to learn then I want to help you succeed. If anything above has caught your eye then let me know and we can work to make something great!
