I've been taking drum lessons with Mike for almost a year now. I can say with confidence that I've been progressing from lesson to lesson under his instruction and guidance. If I were to describe Mike as a teacher so far, he would be the Yoda of drums; he's positive, gentle, and fun. But at the same time, he's firm and pushes you to be the best drummer you can be. Mike also calibrates his lesson based on your current drum level; he never teaches something that is too easy nor does he teach something that is too difficult. Instead, he has guided me through challenging but achievable exercises. Progression has been improving one baby-step at a time. This wouldn't have been possible without Mike's attention to detail, patience, encouragement, and continuous feedback. With that being said, these small baby-steps over the past year have led to tremendous improvement in my skills in 2016. Looking forward to getting even better in 2017. I would highly recommend Mike for private lessons if you wish to be a JEDI DRUM MASTER!

My 12 year old daughter had her 1st violin lesson with Ms. Stephanie. The instructor was great, very positive, kept it fun, interesting, and a great motivator. I would highly recommend her, and the GP Music Academy of Clinton Township even though based on just one lesson. I'm not a newbie to music/music instruction, so I feel this rating is well deserved.

My name is Devin Hammond, and I play drums. I have been playing for over 5 years now in genres ranging from funk, Latin, jazz, gospel, and contemporary music. As an instructor, my main focus is to give students the fundamentals of being a musician and learning how to not just play music but feel it as well. I am very flexible and open to my students and will give them everything I can offer as an instructor.

Our daughter loves the guitar again thanks to Alexander! He has a great teaching style. We used to push her to practice before, but now she picks up the guitar on her own and can't wait for her next lesson because of her instructor. Glad we found him!

Devin is one of these guys that get it! Ive had a really good experience with him. He's been teaching me privately for about 2 years and has shown me how to connect what was missing in my playing to what I thought I understood! Fast forward.. I've just released a record and finished a 3 week US tour.....I never wouldve had the ability or confidence without him

My son had never had drum lessons before so he was pretty bad at first. We can definitely tell the difference over the past 2 months when he is down stairs practicing. Scott is very patient and my son really enjoys his lessons.

Lessons are available for students of all ages and ability levels. I can travel to your home or you can come to my home (drum set and marimba are available at mine). Lessons are for all different kinds of techniques: rock and jazz drum set, rudimental/marching band drumline techniques, concert and orchestral, etc. Lessons cost $20 for a half hour and $40 for an hour. You can do an hour lesson every other week or a half-hour lesson every week. We will work out a schedule with whatever will work for both of us.

We offer hands-on drum therapy and beginner lessons on hand drums and drum kit. Drum therapy is great for all people, starting from small children up to the elderly. It is even ideal for people who just need to blow off stress and steam from work/everyday life! This is hands-on therapy! Simple rhythms are taught so that people can focus on the sound and vibration, and will not have to worry about achievement or academic progression. The therapy is in simply playing effective rhythms on the drums and the interactions with the facilitator and other drummers.

    I'm a musician of ~18 years. I've played violin in a chamber orchestra, guitar and bass in rock bands, and have been playing drums in a power pop duo for about a year. I have most likely developed terrible habits and want to advance my playing and gain total limb independence.
