What's up VF Family! My name is Mike Johnston and I am the owner/educator of mikeslessons.com. I started teaching drum when I was 17 at Drum & Guitar City in Sacramento and I can honestly say that teaching isn't just a hobby, or even a passion... it's my obsession!
Most memorable Next-Level PerformancePerforming on the main stage at PASIC 2013! When it was done I felt like I had finally arrived as a professional educator.
What Drives Your Creativity?Honestly it's just the current crop of content creators. There are millions if not billions of videos on YouTube and somehow these guys and girls come up with fresh stuff every single day!
Why do you choose Vic Firth?The stick quality is a given, flat out amazing! But that's not why I'm a Vic Firth artist. Vic himself was insanely dedicated to education and I want to follow in his footsteps.
