Private Drum Teacher

My goal is to unlock your creativity! As an active musician, producer, and teacher, I love helping people learn to read, write, and play the music they love and envision. My teaching philosophy is that every aspect of music is connected and therefore to really get it, you have to learn it all! I take a wide ground up approach inching away at rhythm, melody, theory, technique, and feel altogether, advancing all musical skills equally over time.

About Joshua

I am a Nashville-based musician and record producer, originally from just north of Chicago in Gurnee, IL. I began my musical journey at the early age of three. My parents recount me banging on pots and pans before I could speak, so they placed me in piano lessons at three years old and drum lessons

Josh is AMAZING! He’s helped my son learn to play the drums - he had never touched any music instrument before he started lessons. He’s also teaching him to read music which is important to me. Lastly, Josh really helped to boost his confidence - he was 5 months in and my shy kid signed up for a drum showcase and DID AMAZING!!! Josh is such an awesome young man, and a good role model for kids as well. He was doing in person lessons, but when Josh moved we switched to virtual because he’s so great! HIGHLY recommend working with Josh. He’s the best.

Good program and Joshua is a very good listener! I recommend his piano class for every beginner.
Dia B.
Joshua has the gift of teaching. My son is not only enjoying his lessons, but he is excited to show me what he has learned and even practices every now and then without needing a reminder. I would highly recommend him. He relates well with his students and makes learning the piano fun.

Although I can only compare Granville to one other teacher as a beginner. I can say that he keeps me very engaged. I'm excited to go to class and he always takes time to explain things in a way that feels personalized to me.

He's a good guy.
I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)

My daughter enjoyed the first lesson very much! Looking forward to more!

Jeff Z - Durham CT
I have been working with Brandon since late November 2019. I am new to drumming and having a drum teacher who is willing to come to your house to teach you on YOUR equipment. I find this to be not just convenient, but very helpful in that I find I can retain what Brandon is teaching me each lesson. Brandon is very friendly, capable and knowledgable. He has patience and never ever gets frustrated, in fact his positive reenforcement builds my confidence and keeps me engaged to continue to learn. As many folks new to drumming want to do, I wanted to 'just learn songs' and while Brandon would have done this he explained the foundational need to get the sticking, timing and coordination foundation so that we can get to my goals!

I recommend Brandon very highly. He is a nice person as well as great drum teacher. He will NOT disappoint!
Jack
Brandon is a very encouraging and welcoming teacher. He's phenomenal at breaking down ideas in many different ways to ensure you understand the content and will put you to work so that you keep progressing as a drummer!
bob
Brandon was a terrific drum instructor for my son. He's a true musician and a fantastic teacher. His technical proficiency allows him to identify potential areas of improvement in his students and help them grow. His comfort with many styles of music and professionalism make him an all around great instructor.

He's a good guy too. My son liked working with him a lot.
