Joel is clearly very passionate and well versed in the language and study of music, providing a solid foundation for anyone wanting to learn the dynamics of music and performance. He doesn’t just teach mechanics, he teaches you the how and the understanding so you come away with more than the knowledge of how to play a few songs. He tailors the curriculum and home practice around the student’s unique interests to blend enjoyment and knowledge in a way that keeps you excited about music!

Attacking the students aspirations and goals of their personal requests to the trainer, and getting to know the client and where they would like to see themselves in a limited time of training so the clients money and time isn't left in the mud! We will play and organize our curriculum through music and melody, with a counted rhythm to the beat we are attacking. Listening to our favorite songs is a good way to learn how to play an instrument, it gives a familiar count and sound that we can connect to! Music is simple but fun so our sessions will always revolve around repetitive lessons ,BPM , counting, rhythm, and listening to many many songs and playing them!

Private Drum Teacher

My drum lessons will be catered to creating a well rounded musician whether they decide to pursue learning drums for fun or if they decide to pursue a career as a musician. My real world experience lends itself to teaching more than just a rote set of techniques. I studied privately and then attended Berklee School Of Music for a year before embarking further on my professional career. I've been playing and studying since the age of 10 and have years of experience playing professionally. I've been on a major label and toured with Powerman 5000, and have been a performing drummer in the Blue Man Group show in Las Vegas for over 20 years.

Stressing reading, rudiments and proper technique will be balanced by learning to play beats, fills, songs and understanding the role of the drummer in a given band or musical situation.

I prefer the lessons to be driven by the students interests so I'm open to creating lesson plans around what they want to learn in order to become the player they ...

Zak has gone so far out of his way to accommodate us. He has taken my daughter under his wing, insisting that she surpasses him in his expertise and spends 4 times the amount of time he is getting paid for, just to increase her skills and confidence. This is all while he attends two different colleges on a full-time basis!!! He is simply amazing, and incredibly talented!"
