"Our son Hunter has been taking drum lessons with Mike McDonough for about 3 ½ years now. We thought starting at such a young age would be a challenge for any teacher. Mike’s calm demeanor and creative approach consistently kept Hunter engaged and excited to learn, play, and have fun. Mike has shared his amazing talent with Hunter on so many levels. Hunter’s love of music is certainly fueled by Mike’s passion and dedication."
"Divine Shakti Arts is a wonderful, hidden gem located in Wurtsboro, NY. We were looking for a place to continue my two daughter’s guitar and art classes, and we were so lucky to find Mukta and this beautiful, open, welcoming space! Penny learned new painting techniques and created beautiful work and Viv learned new chords and strums alongside Mukta’s drumming. Mukta’s generosity, flexibility, and calm energy were so appreciated and I even sat in at one of his open drum circles! Thank you Divine Shakti Arts for the space to create!"
