Michael's teaching philosophy is to encourage growth in all major fields of percussion styles, techniques and theory. Each student has their own personalized lesson plan that is determined by their own growth and skill level. It is important that the student learns what they want to learn, from playing Rock and Roll to learning multiple percussion instruments, it is my role to help guide and teach each student in these musical forms
