Lesson regiments are tailored to synthesize student goals and musical passions, setting a foundation in the instrument of interest.

Technique and practice-exercises provide the core for study and development (but we won't let that get in the way of the fun!).

My teaching philosophy largely derives from experience with master-drummers of different fields of study; therefore, my modality is a synthesis of concepts designed to ensure anyone's improvement. We all have rhythm!

About Joe

I am a professional percussionist and drum instructor based out of the Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz. I teach both studio and outcall lessons to all ages, covering drumset, steel pan, hand drumming, orchestral percussion, music theory, and piano. Additionally, I am a leader in the samba

Joe seems to be a patient and thorough teacher. Happy to start lessons
Riley
My son enjoys his lessons with Joe very much. He’s an encouraging teacher.
Olin
My son loves his drum lessons. Being eight, he naturally has an excess amount of energy and a tendency to chat but Joe has a way of engaging him and keeps him learning. Very positive and supportive as well.

Jennifer is a great flutist and instructor! She is very knowledgeable, helpful, and really knows how to articulate her ideas and communicate with the student. She is encouraging and creative in her approach towards her students. She helped me very much with my piccolo playing.

Jennifer Kennedy is an inspiring teacher and performer. One can be in awe with her beautiful playing and amazed of her patience in the way she teaches you to reach your goal. I DEFINITELY recommend Ms. Kennedy for private, online, Skype or at home teaching. you will not be disappointed.
Joanne
I have listened to Jennifer as she gave flute lessons to several young beginning students. I observed that she truly cares about her students and invests herself in their progress. She has a creative teaching style, always coming up with new ways to approach the challenges of each individual student. She spends time to discover the students’ goals and structures their lesson plans accordingly. Jennifer is also a good communicator with the parents of younger students, making sure they are informed and inviting them to observe lessons if they wish. I’m sure you’ll find her a delight to work with.

What makes my harmonica lessons unique is how I learned from a professional harmonicast who played internationally. I took 5 lessons on the 64 chromatic harmonica from him. The method he taught me,and what I'd like to teach new students is "The Mirror Method." I can also teach different tonguing techniques. I have played solos in large churches and several nursing homes. I've also played in weddings and funerals. I love playing and I would like to pass that on.

"I have been playing harmonica for five years. Tim Gartland is the 3rd teacher I have had. I can say without hesitation that he is innovative and tailors his teaching style to his students learning style. He is “hands on” and you feel he is totally invested in your progress. Tim is a great accomplished artist & a fantastic teacher. My instruction time with Tim is the “highlight “ of my week."

She is very patient, accommodating, and uses very useful analogies that help me visualize what to do in a way that helps me learn and remember. My own weakness is in making time to diligently practice. I look forward to each lesson, and give her my highest recommendation."
