Drum Lessons for All Levels

Drums form the “heartbeat” of every style of music and songs. Musicians are attracted to drum playing for its moving and energetic impact it makes on every song. Many musicians agree that a great rhythm section and expert technique– including the drums–is the key to every amazing band. Whether you are a beginning musician or an experienced, building more proficiency in the drums can be one of the best options to take to be even better and go to the next level.

Drum Lessons La Quinta for Kids

Mikael knows that a lifelong love of music can be fostered in young people’s minds. We create the space for musicians to succeed. Give your child the gift of music lessons, and see how they bloom in other aspects of their lives.

A child who studies music becomes more courageous, confident, creative, and caring! They learn how to collaborate with other musicians to build meaningful connections and skills that will last their whole lives. Kids who practice an instrument learn independence and have the ability to think outside of the box.

Both of my sons took piano from Mikael but learned so much more! He is a phenomenal teacher. Not only did they learn to read music but they had the opportunity to collaborate and perform with others.

Mikael is an amazing musician who is reliable and professional. Both of my sons have different personalities and he adjusted his teaching to meet their needs.

I waited 44 years to learn to play the guitar I got when I turned 16. I scoured the Coachella Valley for someone worthy of my time, my energy, and my money. Someone with exceptional musical knowledge and skill. Someone extremely patient and approachable. And most of all, someone who respected MY musical goal, which is to play well enough to put a smile on the face of that 16 yr-old me.Based on my experience with Mikael, I’d say you can trust him with your musical dream. I did. And I’m smiling.

I have been taking lessons from Mikael for about seven years now. I have learned guitar, bass, keys, and ukulele. I have nothing but good things to say. The way he organizes his lessons and allows time for whatever you feel like you need to do in the lesson is great, and makes learning very fun and exciting.

Mikael makes learning acoustic guitar so much fun and challenging at the same time. The lessons are fit perfectly to my level, a total beginner, and my age, a super senior citizen 🙂 Mikael is patient, kind, supportive and flexible. Most important is the bi-annual recital/performance with all of Mikael’s students where we enjoy and share the local stage with our families, friends and community. I look forward to Mikael’s weekly classes both in person and virtual sessions, where there is no difference in quality. Thank you so much for being my music teacher. With respect and appreciation!
