  5. Sam Buckmiller



Drum Teacher, Sam Buckmiller started playing drums at a very young age and quickly became known as Mike Dale’s “key drummer”. Since those early years (2003), Sam has become Mike’s right-hand man and now has over a decade of teaching experience. Sam has always been a dedicated student as well as teacher and has an unmatched memory, which has allowed him to memorize and retain all of his studies; he has a reputation for still having all his college level competition snare pieces memorized. It is this same ability which has also aided him in becoming such a powerful drum set player; Sam is also a very versatile player, e.g. rock, funk, jazz, pop, latin, drumline and much more.

Sam Served an LDS mission in Florida. Sam is an excellent mentor to the youth, not only for his teaching abilities but also due to his other skills outside of drumming. Some of Sam’s other talents include: BMX Racing, Motocross Racing and Mountain Biking. In 2015, Sam began private instruction for mountain biking to those wishing to increase their skills on the trails. He’s currently the head coach at Utah’s premier tour/instruction company, Simply MTB. Sam also has a reputation for being one of the finest bike technicians in the entire state (obtained while running the repair shop at REI and Salt City Bikes).

Sam is married and lives on a few acres surrounded by the same outdoors that fuels his passions; he enjoys finding balance between work and life. Sam is incredibly in demand (teaching/coaching) and usually has a waiting list…he’s worth the wait!
