Miles Neiffer began playing the piano at age four. He took eight years of piano lessons in the "Suzuki" method which inspired him to play anything he could find; harmonica, violin, guitar, drums. Miles gravitated towards guitar and percussion, but fell in love with the drum kit. As a professional drummer, Miles has played in a variety of groups including country, jazz, and rock. Miles's passion lies in drumming, but has honed his teaching methods while working as a drum, piano, and guitar instructor at American Rock School since 2006. Miles holds a B.A. in Recording Arts from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa. Since taking over ownership in 2016, Miles has a very limited teaching schedule.
