Josh has been teaching my son the drums for over a year now and I have witnessed an amazing transformation in my son's playing ability.

Josh is always very enthusiastic. He covers drum theory and history. His level of professionalism is top notch.

We are very grateful and lucky to have Josh work with our son on becoming a drummer.

Thanks Josh!

Josh has been an great instructor and motivational figure for our 11 year old. My son says "he is cool!". I highly recommend Josh for both his expertise and fantastic personality.
