Josh G.

Apollo Beach, FL

About Josh

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!!!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are in a separate music room w drum sets (2), PA system, seating for parents. 2 dogs kept separate during lessons.

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

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Latin, Funk, Rock, Hip-Hop. I also teach out of serval books students will be eventually required to purchase.

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.

James B.

Sun City Center, FL

About Jim

I have been teaching for the past 15 years as a private instructor. My students range in age from 5 years old to 64. I teach beginner and intermediate piano and beginner, intermediate, and advanced electric bass.
I've been playing professionally for the past 30 years as an electric bassist, pianist, and vocalist. Learn to play like your favorite artists while having fun and growing as a musician. For bass students, you can learn all styles that are desirable, such as funk techniques like slapping, R&B grooving, rock & roll driving, and jazz swinging. For piano students, you can expect to lear
n enough music theory to reach greater heights and move forward while developing a love for the piano and the world of music. I offer a teaching environment that is highly interactive and encourages students to play, and understand the dynamics of playing with other musicians. You will learn to read music but I promise you will not be bored.

(This is Kari's daughter writing the review as I am the one receiving the lessons) Jennifer is honestly the best instructor I have ever had. She's so understanding about having to reschedule due to personal issues. She teaches in a way that's very focused for your individual learning style and she's also very honest which is always nice when you're learning a skill. I love Jennifer and I would definitely recommend using her for your child.

Cheryl is remarkable. She engaged with my 6 year old nephew immediately. She made it fun for him and he had a great timeand, all the while he was learning much more than I expected for a first lesson. Cheryl has a lovely way of building trust. She is a skilled and talented musician and teacher.
I highly recommend Cheryl.

I met Mrs Elena M at mommy and me Music classes when my daughter Elena Schuch was 2 years old, these classes taught young children to appreciate music, learn about famous classical music composers, and in a way that was fun for the children as they played with musical instruments, Elena M. told me my daughter would do well with Piano lessons, I did enroll her in Piano classes at the age of 6 and she continued with the classes until the age of 18, at which point she went of to College. Mrs Elena M. is a wonderful teacher, who challenged my daughter as she learned the language of Music, she was admitted to the Bak Middle School of the Arts in WPB as a result of these lessons, and actually won first prize in a competition on sight reading, studying Piano opened a door to my daughters development I would not have considered if it wasn't for Mrs Elena M. suggestion she take Piano lessons.I highly recommend Elena M. as a Piano teacher, not only does she have the breath of knowledge in her field and understands how children learn, she is also a consummate teacher, knowing how to encourage, and when to challenge her students, my daughter was lucky to have her as a teacher and I am grateful for Elena M. advice, and how her teaching expanded my daughters horizons.

Miss Elena’s school in Boca Raton was definitively the best music school in the area. We are so glad we found her, because thanks to this school our kids had an excellent music education. Our older son has been with Miss Elena since he was four, attending the music workshops classes, and he was Elena’s piano student for four years until she sold the school and moved to Sarasota. The methodology used, the dynamic of the lessons and the introduction of new pieces in every class, have kept him interested, motivated, and eager to learn. We highly recommend music classes with Miss Elena.
