Original co-founder and drummer of the known rock band Local H Joe Daniels is offering drum lessons to help inspiring drummers to feel the rock! I started playing drums at age 2 when my father introduced me to them along with other instruments. I come from a very musical family and background and music has been in my life all of my life. At age 23 I was fortunate enough to have my band Local H sing a record deal w with Island Records and our second album became a smash hit. Most who listen to radio over the 20 plus years know of our biggest hit song name "Bound for the floor" aka that copacetic song.
If you want to learn about drums and not just technique, but also stage presence, groove and feel please feel free to contact me and I can show you my years of experience from in the studio to the stage.
