“Your performance at the Fox Lake District Library was both educational and very entertaining.  The Marimba is such a beautiful instrument and to watch someone create the lovely music you shared for our Saturday Special audience was a wonderful experience.  We appreciate your professional appearance and prompt arrival and attention to all the details.  Thanks again for a wonderful performance.”

Cindy Lobaza, Assistant Librarian, Fox Lake District Library


Mike was very cordial from the first email, and contacted me not long after I had scheduled lessons for the next week. He was very eager to begin teaching, as well as proactive in his communications with me.
As we began, we quickly discovered what areas of music theory that I needed help in. While I did not have a microphone, he was able to explain enlightening concepts to me while being open for questions at any time. He also drew helpful diagrams on a whiteboard as he taught, which granted more clarity.
Afterwards, I received an email with material that I could use to study, and he gave suggestions as to what to apply my knowledge to.
Mike is definitely worth looking into if you want a relaxed, informative and experienced teacher for such a great price.

Michael is great with my kids. He is teaching my youngest daughter, age 11, the drums and my oldest, age 13, the guitar. We are able to all come together and he takes them one at a time. He is very encouraging to the girls, even when they mess up he has something positive to say to show them the correct way of doing it. In just 3 lessons I can see improvements and they are both very excited when we get home to show dad what they learned.

“She came home and started practicing right away.  Your instruction is giving her a new found love for the drums…thanks for that, that drum set was not cheap and I was saddened by the fact that she doesn’t practice enough”

Mike is very comfortable to work with and very patient.  (My daughter) learned how to become more musical and hands seem to flow by themselves without thinking.  (My daughter) learned her music sooner than expected!  I would recommend Mike Neumeyer & his services to anyone who wants to learn music and have fun doing it.  He takes the stress out of instruction!

Michael is the best instructor! He has such patience and works with my son so well. Even though we have only had a few lessons Michael is able to tailor the lessons to fit my son. He is encouraging, prompt, and very personable. We are excited to continue lessons to improve my son’s skills!

  1. Mike Neumeyer does a great job teaching my son with a variety of percussion instruments and methods. Mike subtly shows him the connections between music and his other areas of study. He always finds ways to work my son’s interests into his lessons. He helps my son learn how to practice in an efficient and organized way. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for relaxed, quality percussion instruction.

  2. It has been my honor and pleasure to work with Mike in a variety of venues and settings since 1998. He is professionalism and musicianship personified. I cannot express the extent of his patience in teaching, willingness and openness in collaboration, and skill in his craft. I am truly blessed to call Mike a friend and colleague.

    I have had Mr. Neumeyer teach and perform at multiple event days at my elementary. In different years, he has been a session instructor in the morning and a main assembly in the afternoon. His musical knowledge and ability are simply amazing. More importantly is his ability to connect with the students and make their time one of joy, passion and excitement. The students learn about the science of sound, musical history and how instruments work. Don’t debate it or think about it just hire him!!
