Mike Johnston is a drum teacher in California and has become one of the most recognizable faces in drum education globally. In the beginning he was making home made videos in what looks like a basement, now he's all high tech and making the front page of the #1 drum mag in the world, Modern Drummer.
The number one thing that is noticeable about Mike Johnston is the absence of any trace of an ego. This guy gave up a career as a professional drummer because he loved teaching drums. He's the best drum teacher I have ever seen and students report his drum camps are like life coaching retreats.
Anyway way whether you are a drummer or not, this video is cool. He offers great advice for drummers of any age and his philosophy can be applied to anything.
