As a teacher, I believe that learning to play music is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. My goal is to help you take your musical aspirations as far as you can! As one of Southern California’s most renowned teachers, I have been teaching for over 20 years and am known as a specialist in using state-of-the-art methods in developing vocabulary, command, and control of the complete drum set. You will learn the masterful stick, finger and foot techniques used by the professionals.
What sets me apart from other teachers is my performance experience as an instructor/clinician. I have performed educational clinics at several universities, colleges, schools and music stores throughout the country. My knowledge and experience, unlimited 24/7 student support, follow-up and passion for music education is unparalleled.
I am the author of the education instructional video series titled, “The True Basics of Drumming”. My video series outlines some of my teaching and playing ...

My first lesson with Joe was Awesome and eye opening!
Joe has plenty of patience when it comes to rookies like me! I felt very comfortable at his location!
I'm working on the techniques and homework he gave me and now it's making sense as I'm practicing at home what we went over on my first lesson. I feel like I made a great choice from the get go and I'm excited and looking forward my next 14 lessons!

Ableton is such a powerful tool but can be a bit intimidating when you first start with it. There's an endless amount of possibilities and it can be difficult to know where to even start. I've written and produced hundreds of songs for myself, TV commercials, other artists and songs I've worked on have accumulated millions of plays online. Allow me to share my knowledge with you, both technical and creative. Let's make some great music!

About Zach

Zach is awesome! My 15yo daughter has been loving her lessons and is excited to show us what she has learned after every lesson. She picked up the guitar herself about six months ago and after learning some basics from YouTube she asked if she could have lessons to get to the next level. She will definitely be continuing her weekly lessons with Zach for as long as she wants. We love hearing her practice every day and are excited that she is learning to play the music she listens to and has a passion for.

I teach rapping to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals.
During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally.
Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing).
Learn how to do the Singer's Formant, "Squillo" (that "ringing" sound of professionals).

Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach singing than eat ...
