Joe is fantastic for so many reasons! My son has finally bonded to his drum teacher and is engaged for a full hour lesson which is amazing! He looks forward to seeing Joe each week and is at the top of his band class at school. It is a special bond that makes children want to do well for their teacher and learn more. Joe is extremely professional and punctual as well as a pleasure to have in our home. He has really made drums something that is part of my son instead of just an instrument he has to play for school. My son needed the drums to channel his music and energy...and Joe is showing him the way!

Joe's been teaching my nine year old for several months. He shows incredible patience with my son's progress while firmly but kindly re-directing my son to the task at hand in the lesson . I see improvement in my son's playing, and he really likes working with Joe, who is always excited and passionate about music and teaching.
