Customer Reviews

"My 9 year old son has been taking drum lessons with Mike for nearly a year and it has been a wonderful experience. Mike designs lessons specifically geared towards my son's interests. Each skill is taught using songs from my son's favorite bands. I am so impressed with the music I hear every week. Mike will even sing and play the guitar so my son feels like he's in a band"
Lisa S. - Newington
