Hello, I'm Geoff Kinde! I've been playing and teaching for over 40 years. I performed on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Miss USA Pageant and appeared in Three to Tango starring Neve Campbell. I can be heard in the Scooby-Doo Movie, American Pie, The Haunted Mansion Soundtrack and many more.


I teach all levels and styles of drumming, plus melody and hand percussion. Study in-person at Oz's Music in Ann Arbor or learn online with Zoom, Skype or FaceTime.

On this website you can register for lessons, download exercises, watch videos, read a blog or hang out in the Drummer's Lounge. Feel free to look around. Enjoy!

Weekly Schedule

Payment Policies

Lessons are once a week. The standard fee is $35 per 30 minute lesson. Monthly packages are discounted because it's a flat rate. The annual savings for 30 minute lessons is $385 (11 free lessons), which more than covers vacations, holidays and occasional cancelations. If you think you'll miss more than 3 months or aren't sure how long you want to study, weekly payments are the way to go.


There are no roll-over credits for unused lessons.


All other payment forms (Venmo, PayPal, credit, check or cash) are $35 per 30 minute lesson. This “pay-as-you-go” option provides flexibility and allows you to cancel as often as you like.


24 hours notice is required on all cancelations.
