Introduction: Hello Drummers! I have taught private drumset lessons to students of all ages and abilities since 2014 and I love it! I strive to share my passion for the drums with my students and I understand the potential impact that learning an instrument can have on a student's wellbeing. My lessons are organized, and my kind and supportive nature has helped me excel as a teacher. I genuinely care for my students' musical and personal growth. Additionally, I have several years of experience working with children with disabilities and have seen the great benefits they receive from learning the drums. Most important, I make sure my students are always having fun! I have over 8 years of experience as a professional, working musician playing with bands of all styles. I am also a producer and audio engineer. Additionally, I like to teach my drum students music theory as it develops better musicianship. Hit me up and let's talk!

I've been taking lessons with Mike for about 7 months and he has greatly helped me improve my drumming skills. His classes are always fun and engaging, let's me bring in my own songs to learn and is always down to answer and questions I have.

Mike is an amazing teacher! He was able to connect with our 11 year old daughter like no other music teacher and keeps things fun and engaging. She has made impressive progress on her drums and she doesn't even mind practicing! I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has a kid that is interested in learning to play the drums.

Mike is excellent with kids, he is patient and talented. My son has learned a lot in the last year. He makes the classes fun for him since he is learning to play songs from his favorite bands Queen, Nirvana, etc. He had zero experience before and now he knows great technique and songs. for He is also very flexible depending on my hectic schedule, I can go for virtual or in-person lessons. Highly recommended.

Mike was my son’s drum teacher in the Chicago area for a few years before the pandemic. My son never clicked with a new teacher, so when everything was going remote, I reached back out to Mike for remote lessons. Mike makes music fun and engaging, but most of all he is a musician and connects to, and brings out, the musician my 12 year old has always been.

I have been working with Mike McCulloch for about six years, or so, and have grown tremendously as a musician. Mike's attention to detail and organization has always made it clear to me how I can grow at every stage in the process. He has opened up many resources to me whether that is books, songs, transcriptions, or music opportunities. My progress is not only attributed to his vast music knowledge and deep passion but also his open and encouraging teaching style. Every lesson, I feel as though I have learned at least ten new things about playing the drums and am surprised about how time flies when music passion is celebrated and explored. I will always be grateful for the many years I got to learn and grow with Mike.
