We are a small, revolving door team that helps filter Mike’s Social Media Pages, his Store, Cameo and Zoom ADMIN. You can be assured of the validity and accuracy of the information on this site.

Firstly, Mike is from Waltham, MA, not Newton, MA. He was born in a Newton hospital is all, but happens to like many restaurants and people from Newton. However, he is a "Waltham Hawk” forever.

Another example of misinformation, is that Mike is NOT in the Guiness Book of World Records for his Official W.F.D. Hand and Feet Records because Guiness was not present at the N.A.M.M events, or clinics where and when Mike set all of his Officially W.F.D. sanctioned, "World’s Fastest Drummer” records. Thus, they were not able to enter him in their record books even though he shattered the records at the time and has long since retired from participaing in them. See the whole journey under the “About Me” Tab.

Another source of misinformation accurately reflected within the “About Me” Tab, is how Mike won his current job with the band Dream Theater. You can all the facts about that here, as well as being able to dig into his past career and learn about his world renown educational abilities and systems.

Here ’s a playthough from Mike’s Studio of Dream Theater’s “Untethered Angel”

Here’s a 2021 playthrough of Dream Theater’s, The Alien. It is at 110% Speed. This song won a 2022 Grammy for “Best Performance” in the ‘metal’ category.

The Alien won a 2022 GRAMMY for Best Metal Performance. Here is Dream Theater’s John Petrucci accepting the Grammy.


He also has many products and services available, as well as social media pages within the “Socials” and “Products & Services” Tab.

Here’s an oldie, but goodie Promo for his Zoom Classes
