I've spent some time now searching for the right drum teacher. It's hard finding someone you want to pay to spend an hour with teaching you music. I have a very wide musical interest and the music teachers I've found have such rigid ideas on what they think I should play. I heard about Dave through a friend and when I had my first lesson with him I knew I'd found my match. His teaching style is great. You go through the traditional methods and exercises but he also allows me to expand and improvise on the styles I want to. Not only is he an accomplished musician in the SF jazz scene but he is a wonderful person, knowledgeable and very likable. I've had several lessons with him at this point and I keep improving as a drummer. It's been a great experience that I plan on continuing and I want to spread the word. He is highly reccommended!! Pros: He can come to you or you can come to his studio...very flexible. more

Dave Rocks!!! 5/8/2007

Dave is a great musician, and a super nice person. He makes it fun to learn to play drums, and can teach you all of your favorite songs. He has been my teacher for 5 years, and because of his encouragement, now I play in a band. He knows a lot about technique and improvisation, and is very encouraging when it's hard for me to get it. We spend a lot of time actually playing music, not just talking about it, which is what I wanted. I have also been to some of his shows, and he is the most amazing drummer, and a good role model for me. If you want the best drum teacher, go see Dave! He's the best. Pros: Fun, nice, comes to our house Cons: I'm not old enough to see most of his shows more

A really good music teacher 4/30/2007

Dave Mihaly has been teaching me piano for 6 months now. He is patient and a very good teacher. I am also learning to play marimba from him. He plays music with me some of the time during a lesson, which is fun. more

A very impressive instructor 2/2/2007

I brought my two teenage kids to see Dave Mihaly. My daughter plays the drums, my son plays the guitar. They both have been pleased and inspiried by the lessons they have been given. My son is not so keen on written information and is more an 'ear' player. Dave taught him to read tablature and works with ear training and is introducing him to reading on a staff, as well as showing him chords and songs he enjoys. My daughter is more of a reader and is learning to play rhythms from a method book as well as learning beats she likes from her favorite songs. They both study once a week for a half hour (each). They had previous negative experiences with other teachers, so my wife and I are thrilled. We like him, and so do our kids. Pros: Good communicator and teacher. Good rapport. more
