I had joined Keith just based on the star ratings here and now I think it is my time to give back to the community. It was not until a month after being his student that I read all the reviews below (I had taken a leap of faith). Until then, I didn't know that Keith has performed/ managed such famous bands. That's what defines Keith- a highly experienced performer, a great teacher, and a very down to earth and extremely humble person. I took some extra time getting used to the musical notes and holding the sticks. Keith was very patient with me and recognized exactly where I was lacking. His method of teaching is wonderful and very adaptive to students' needs. It is a delight to learn from him every week.

I'm an older student with no ambitions of making drums a career at this stage in my life. I just wanted to learn what I had been putting of for decades and become a respectable amateur. Keith starts with the fundamentals and mixes in a bit of "fun' now and again to keep things interesting. His experience is evident and he tailors the lessons to the student's skill level and goals which is important since no two students are alike. While not directly relevant to me, his industry experience and the stories he shares are fascinating and keeps the lessons interesting. There is more to music then just notes on a page. I highly recommend Keith to anyone who want to learn this wonderfully frustrating instrument.

Keith is not only incredibly knowledgeable about drumming and music in general, but he is also fun. He has a great sense of humor, so if you're a beginner like I am, you will immediately feel at ease the second you walk in the door of his studio. He also has some really good stories from the days he spent on the road as a successful professional drummer. I highly recommend him to anyone--beginners, experts, and everyone in between.

I just love working with Josh. He knows his stuff and at the same time is fun to work with. He knows technique and anatomy, so he's able to describe all the details of what your air, tongue, palate, etc. should be doing. I never knew how much was involved in singing!
Plus he's always striving to find new and innovative ways to teach. He is not just an excellent singer who assumes he can pass it on, he really cares about the best way to help you improve.
Another thing I really appreciate is that Josh holds you to high standard. He insists on quality, but that means when he says you got it right, you know you really nailed it! Through it all his vibrant and warm personality shines through.

Singing · In home
A week after my first lesson with Joshua, people in the congregation of my church where I sang, expressed their amazement at the progress I had made. Two years later, I can reach high octaves, sing with confidence and do things with my voice I never dreamed I would be capable of doing. I am older than most of Joshua’s students and have a different background from them (in non-Western music). Yet one of his greatest gifts Joshua has is his sensitivity, creativity and ability to understand and truly connect with people. Instead of a rigid, "one-size-fits-all” method, he creates flexible and unique approaches that fit the personality and learning style of each individual student. At the same time, the depth and rigor of his approach are unparalleled. What has been a source of excitement and progress for me is his patience and the seriousness of his approach. He treats me—not as someone who never took herself seriously as a singer—but as if I were an accomplished opera singer with global reputation. He lingers on phrases or words to correct enunciation; bring out nuances of interpretation or explain the relationship between physical and musical elements in a sound and work patiently with me until I can do it right. Originally I thought I would take a few basic singing lessons for 3-6 months but I have been getting so much out of studying with Joshua that it has been over two years now and I can’t even foresee an end. Every single lesson is a discovery of a new level of clarity and singing ability and every single week represents progress over the previous week.
Brian R. Bethesda, MD

About Brian

I picked up my first pair of drumsticks when I was 10 years old. After a little bit of practice and hard work I've gone on to teach kids and adults the best instrument in the world! Some of my heroes include Steve Gadd, Carter Beauford, Buddy Rich, Gregg Bissonette, Dennis Chambers, and any drummer who can play left-handed. I have been in bands ranging in styles from rock to funk and currently enjoy playing in instrumental funk and pop-rock bands based here in DC. Whether it's an intimate club like IOTA in Arlington or a large venue like The Fillmore in Silver Spring, I love putting on a good show. While studying Audio/Radio at Emerson College in Boston, I played drums with funk-groove band SYM while honing my skills in audio engineering. It was in the studio, I fell in love with ...

Professional Drum Teacher/Collaborator

I'm not a student, however I did play in a band in Boston with Brian for over 2 years. He was professional drummer and had a great attitude towards collaboration.

We recorded one EP at Emerson College, where Brian had an integral part in the mixing, production and of course recording.

I would recommend working with Brian!

B-rock

Brian and I shared the drum section together for several years in a local Northeast touring band. His technique and pursuit of the perfect beat were second to none. He's got a keen ear to tempo and brings unique flavors or different genres of music to the table which helped push the band in new directions.

I'd recommend Brian as a teacher based on his love and dedication to music coming from his college major to his hobbies, music and playing drums are a large part of B-rocks life.

Rock on brah.

Excellent Drummer

I have had the unique opportunity of playing in band with Brian for two years. Not only is he an incredibly technical drummer, he genuinely understands creativity and collaboration. He was also at forefront of recording one of our EP's back in '08, and it came out great! He made us sound much more professional than we were at the time. I haven't had him as a teacher, but would highly recommend him for anyone looking to learn both skill and creativity.
