My passion for drums started with my Dad's record collection. Growing up in Los Angles was a great place to get involved in music. Music was the heartbeat of the city and some of the best drummers in the world played there. I had access to many of those drummers while they hung out at the drum shop of my teacher, Mel Zelnick. Those drummers and musicians opened up a whole life time of passion for me. Mike as played with The Gerald Wilson Big Band, Terry Gibbs and Bill Watrous. He has 3 CD's out as a leader and composed an original score for the independent film"The Last Known Documentary" My goal as a teacher is to teach my students to dig down, layer by layer, in a relaxed and natural and musical way. I believe we drummers should be well rounded musicians that create though our chosen instrument, the Drums.
