Lesson regiments are tailored to synthesize student goals and musical passions, setting a foundation in the instrument of interest. Technique and practice-exercises provide the core for study and development (but we won't let that get in the way of the fun!). My teaching philosophy largely derives from experience with master-drummers of different fields of study; therefore, my modality is a synthesis of concepts designed to ensure anyone's improvement. We all have rhythm!

My son loves his drum lessons. Being eight, he naturally has an excess amount of energy and a tendency to chat but Joe has a way of engaging him and keeps him learning. Very positive and supportive as well.
