sooooooo much fun taking hand drum lessons from Brian! Ultra beginner student is me (shhh I'm getting better!). I decided to learn bongos plus the djembe ( I don't own either drum BUT he has them at his studio so it was cool )......He is very supportive when I try the exercises he shows me and no pressure to be a pro right away lol. I will keep coming to learn more and more I like the salsa stuff he showed me at lessons.......and don't worry Brian I am about to buy a set of bongos to practice at home! Cool guy - recommended!!!
Luther
This dude can play! Brian is a great teacher.. we did some hand drums and drum set for the few lessons we had together. I was new to learning music and glad I came across Brian because he is a chill guy with positive light. I felt as if I could take drums as far as I wanted with Brian as my teacher. I will be back for some more lessons when my wife lets me lol.
Jessie
Quality drum teacher. I took lessons with Brian for about a year and his teaching style is relaxed compared to other drummers I studied with. I never felt rushed with the exercises, we always went at my pace. I recommend this teacher.

Online Djembe Teacher

Originally from W. Africa, the Djembe is a drum for solo and ensembles. Wikipedia says it can be a Solo drum, due to its volume. My experience is usually with groups, i.e. at Sinclair College's choirs, adding interesting patterns and sounds. My approach is similar to Conga, although private lessons will include other interesting aspects of rudiments and ... if enough people, the possibility for a percussion ensemble.

About Joseph

Joey aka CelloJoe is an anomaly in the world of cellists. By combining cello with beatboxing, he has created a unique genre: Classical Hip Hop.  CelloJoe records live on stage with a loop pedal and produces intricate tapestries of harmony, melody, and rhythm. His beatboxing (vocal percussion

Andrew
Joe was able to work with my daughter to approach some very complex material (using Abelton live to live loop and edit her songs) at a pace and with a vocabulary and tone that completely defused an otherwise intimidating situation. His calm, steady manner spiced with just the right touch of dry wit and his keen ear for a mean beat kept the lessons fun and very productive. Joey's not just a fantastic and unique musician and teacher, however, he's a great person and a fantastic influence to have in your life.
Ken
Joey is the best! A lesson from Joey is always a highlight of the week. I'd be surprised if you don't feel the same based on his talent, his warmth, his humor, and his intelligence.
Courtney
My 10 year old son has loved his piano lessons with Joey. We had excellent in-person cello lessons in the past, and the video piano lessons have been just as effective. Joey has several camera angles set up in his home so my son can see Joey's hands on the keyboard in real time during the lesson. We get a Zoom link for each visit and a recording of the visit afterwards, which helps with practicing during the week. I highly recommend Joey as a patient and talented instructor! The lessons have been a great activity / distraction for my active son during shelter in place. It's a win-win!
