About Me

Justin graduated from The University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2006 with a Bachelor of Music degree and also obtained an Associates of Arts degree from Holyoke Community College in 2003. He has studied drums, percussion, piano, and theory with Bob Gulotti, Winard Harper, Adam Kolker, Eduardo Leandro, Richie Lepore and others.

Justin is passionate about music education, and has been teaching for over ten years. He always prides himself on developing a bond with each student. Technique, theory, and all the basics are very important, but most important of all is making sure that music is enjoyed at whatever level the student wishes to achieve.

Along with having a rich educational history, Justin has been a touring musician throughout the nation since 2003. His performance experience has taken him to famed venues such as Boston Symphony Hall, the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun and repeated appearances at the legendary Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City among others.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide everything they would need, including drums and books. If a student is learning a particular song, I can bring a CD or an Mp3 player, but I always encourage that person to get the music themselves for practice purposes.

*** Specialties ***
I pride myself in being well trained in all styles of music. In attaining each of my degrees, I have put an emphasis on being versatile and well-rounded. For drum set, I like to use method books such as: Drumming the Easy Way, Syncopation and Future Sounds. For piano, I use the Bastien series, "Hanon" and 'Dozen a Day" books.
