Beginning students will begin studying from the book "Progressive Drum Grooves" by Craig Lauritsen which he/she will be required to have each lesson.

Although instructor will have drumsticks, brushes etc. students should carry them along for every lesson.

A drum set or practice pad will be a very crucial part in seeing growth from our lessons.

(2nd Kit) "ideal for young children"
Fusion sized Mapex drum set with cymbals. 18" bass drum

The lesson room also has a PA system for CD/MP3 player capabilities.

I can provide practice pad if needed. If student is learning the drum set they will need to supply for in-home lessons.

Private Drum Teacher

My goal is to unlock your creativity! As an active musician, producer, and teacher, I love helping people learn to read, write, and play the music they love and envision. My teaching philosophy is that every aspect of music is connected and therefore to really get it, you have to learn it all! I take a wide ground up approach inching away at rhythm, melody, theory, technique, and feel altogether, advancing all musical skills equally over time.

About Joshua

I am a Nashville-based musician and record producer, originally from just north of Chicago in Gurnee, IL. I began my musical journey at the early age of three. My parents recount me banging on pots and pans before I could speak, so they placed me in piano lessons at three years old and drum lessons

Josh is AMAZING! He’s helped my son learn to play the drums - he had never touched any music instrument before he started lessons. He’s also teaching him to read music which is important to me. Lastly, Josh really helped to boost his confidence - he was 5 months in and my shy kid signed up for a drum showcase and DID AMAZING!!! Josh is such an awesome young man, and a good role model for kids as well. He was doing in person lessons, but when Josh moved we switched to virtual because he’s so great! HIGHLY recommend working with Josh. He’s the best.

Good program and Joshua is a very good listener! I recommend his piano class for every beginner.
Dia B.
Joshua has the gift of teaching. My son is not only enjoying his lessons, but he is excited to show me what he has learned and even practices every now and then without needing a reminder. I would highly recommend him. He relates well with his students and makes learning the piano fun.

Adam is an excellent teacher! I have always been intimidated by playing the drum set, but Adam was so good at explaining each step that it felt almost simple. After just a few lessons I was able to figure out some songs on my own, and felt confident enough to play with friends. Thank, Adam!

Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!

Online Drum Teacher

I've been teaching drums to students of all ages since 2004. I'm available for lessons at my home studio or your house, and I'm great with kids, however I ask that your child is at least 6 years old. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play basic drum beats and play along to some of your favorite songs. At the same time, we'll work on good drumming technique, note reading, developing good timing, and more. I'm a very patient and positive teacher and would be excited to hear from you! I pride myself on having long-term student retention. :)

I look forward to my next lesson!

His love of drums and music shows in how he teaches his students. He never criticizes your mistakes and works along side of you, teaching you, until you learn and understand it all. He is very patient, professional and the best drummer I have ever met. I am truly blessed to have him as an instructor and look forward to many years of his teachings. Not enough stars in the world to rate him!!!!!"
