Michael Abrams

Michael Abrams was born and raised right in the heart of Music City - Nashville, TN. His roots run deep in music having learned drums under the instruction of Joe Hobbs, Bill Bachman, Chris Watson and other heavy hitters in the marching percussion world. His percussion career started in high school and consisted of several successful years competing in WGI Scholastic Open Class and World Class Championships in Dayton, OH as well as SCGC regional competitions throughout the southeast. In college, he marched with the University of Tennessee's Pride of the Southland Band, then taught at two high schools in the Knoxville, TN area that participated in WGI as well as CIPA regional competitions. Throughout the years of marching percussion, he picked up some other styles of drumming in the form of soul, funk, rock, blues, metal, punk, jazz, and some latin styles on drumset. Drum lessons with Michael are fun, accessible, encouraging, and challenging for drummers of all ages!
