About Joshua

Joshua is extremely talented in reaching the student at his/her level. He is extremely positive and looks to connect with his students to give them a panoramic view of music in general and then drills down to how that would relate to the drums.
My son is always excite to see Joshua and looks forward to each lesson. Joshua takes the work out of the lesson and lets the student have fun and explore, all the while teaching basics without it being apparent to the student!

Just a really awesome person and instructor!

Joshua has been excellent with my son Max (10 years old). He's very patient and positive. His calm demeanor is great for instructing. He keeps Max interested and enthusiastic. Max enjoys taking lessons from Joshua, and I would highly recommend him to anyone of any age.

My 7 year old son had his first drumming lesson this week with Joshua and he loved it! He learned so much on his lesson and was intrigued with what Joshua was teaching him. What a great teacher!!!! Patient, reliable and extremely skilled! We can't wait for our lesson next week!!

Taylor was so patient and kind with our 6 year old son. He was very accommodating and explained in simple terms the beginning of playing the electric guitar. He was kind and soft spoken which helped with an energetic 6 year old. He was able to redirect my son’s attention when he would wonder. I am so glad we picked him as our son’s instructor.

About Andrew

Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different b

Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience.

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

Why hire me?

Imagine for a moment that you need emergency heart surgery. Would you want your surgeon to have been taught by doctors who have only read about heart surgery, or taught by doctors who have both read about it AND continue operating?

Your music comes from your heart, entrust it to professionals who can care for it and help it flourish!

Make sure when hiring a teacher that your professional has
1) Theoretical knowledge (Book Smart)
2) Practical knowledge (is still working in the field)
3) the ability to teach.

These three factors are essential in hiring a great teacher for you or your loved one to grow best.

Drum Set is my strongest instrument. I have performed all over the world and love every time I get behind the kit.

I can work with you from the first time you put your set together all the way through auditioning for a pro gig or grad school.

Through my travels I have learned diverse styles including become a master of odd meters. I can ...

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!"

"Great dedicated teacher

Can't say often enough how lucky we are to have Jesse found as the drums and guitar teacher of my two sons. You can tell that he lives for music and it's not just a job for him teaching students. He is determined but patient with the kids and really has educational skills. Furthermore he is absolute reliable and committed. The regular recitals combined with a pot luck at his place are really fun!"

Jim was really patient with me which I appreciate - since I haven't played the drums in 10 years. But I really picked it back up right away with him, really pleased with the results of our lessons. I highly recommend Jim Saint-Amour as a drum instructor."
