One-on-one Gong/Singing Bowl/Bell Intensive Workshop!

Work with me for 8 hours as we explore and play various Gongs, Singing Bowls, and Bells. This session is designed to give you an indepth look at these sacred instruments, and practical hands on experience working with them. (click above for details)

For those looking more for the basics, I offer hourly lessons (2-hours and up) introducing you to the Gongs and Bowls, playing techniques, and answers to your questions. These lessons are available in hour long blocks and can be tailored to your specific needs. Contact me with your needs.

Private Lessons:

One off lessons (1 hour & up)  are also available for people passing through, or who need a tune up of what they currently do..

Master class 

Half day or all day sessions are available.

There's 2 ways I teach: we can work on the mechanics - like beats, rudiments, playing songs, and regular drum stuff (logical thinking); or we can go off the deep end and get into the mysteries & mayhem of things - like composing, sounds, energy, extended techniques - the esoterica of percussion (abstract thinking). 


Michael is available for various compositions - solo/ensemble/film scores/etc.
