Joshua picked up his first set of sticks at 10 years old, beginning lessons with his father; this seemingly young interest took a turn for devoted passion and appreciation of rhythm and music. He is versatile drummer with more than 15 years of experience in different styles.
Joshua attended Florida State University and studied with several teachers.
Joshua brings something unique to the table with a background in Jazz and passion for teaching!
*** Lesson Details ***
I believe drums and music should be fun! You should enjoy learning and practicing on your own time as well as having fun in private lessons. I can tailor the lessons to your interests while integrating several tools to help you learn the basics.
I will also teach from a few different books to help with independence of hands and feet. After 3-6 months you will have learned basic rudiments, how to apply them, and how to play several different drum beats and patterns.
Honestly, the more you practice the more you gain confidence in your abilities to play. But more importantly Drums is Challenging so it can get frustrating its important to have FUN!!!
