About Joshua G.

Joshua picked up his first set of sticks at @9 years old, this seemingly young interest took a turn for devoted passion and appreciation of rhythm and music. He is versatile drummer with more than 20rs of experience in different styles.

Joshua brings something unique to the table with a background in Various genres of music 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.

Honest have FUN While also staying Focused

**Travel Equipment
The student is expected to provide a drum kit.

Joshua is extremely talented in reaching the student at his/her level. He is extremely positive and looks to connect with his students to give them a panoramic view of music in general and then drills down to how that would relate to the drums.
My son is always excite to see Joshua and looks forward to each lesson. Joshua takes the work out of the lesson and lets the student have fun and explore, all the while teaching basics without it being apparent to the student!

Just a really awesome person and instructor!

Joshua has been excellent with my son Max (10 years old). He's very patient and positive. His calm demeanor is great for instructing. He keeps Max interested and enthusiastic. Max enjoys taking lessons from Joshua, and I would highly recommend him to anyone of any age.
