About Joe N.

Joe teaches: Ages 5 and up
Special needs
Teaching since: June 2000
Last sign in: More than two months


Musician's Institute graduate
Touring and Studio Professional.

My endorsements include Taye Drums, The Kelly Shu,and Beato Bags.

Comfortable playing and teaching all styles including Rock, Pop, Metal, Funk, Reggae, Blues, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Lain, Fusion, Country, R&B,

My goal is to provide students with a strong foundation in the art of drumming. Through my twenty five years of playing and sixteen years of teaching I have developed a great adaptable system of practical techniques and technical exercises that will have beginners playing after their first lesson and more advanced players honing their skills. (have had great success teaching students who have autism)
I'm also a very busy gigging and studio musician with tons of insight on studio and live playing. Let me guide you through the amazing journey of learning the drums and make you the best you can be!
