"Joe - Drummer - Percussionist

I have been a professional musician for 35 years which have included tours of Brazil and Japan. A few of the artists I have performed are “Renaissance”, Kenny Drew Jr (jazz pianist), David Sancious (Sting, Seal, Eric Clapton), Patrick Moraz (YES), Mark Egan (Pat Metheny) and numerous others.

I have over 25 years of teaching experience in New York City and Los Angeles. Many of these years have included special percussion workshops for teens: at risk, behavioral issues, special-ed, and autism.

For piano students, I use software that allows my students to hear and see the piano notes I'm playing right on your screen - along with the names of the notes, and where they are on the music staff.

I teach in a nice easy going manner and have lots of patience. If students ask a question, I tend not to answer so quickly, knowing that the students “struggle” for the answer is where the real growth happens. It's all about the journey and not the destination!

I focus on the “Listening” as much as the “Playing”. Also, I place emphasis on demonstrating dynamics, tempo, and “feel” and of course about “space”.

Where you ”don't play” is just as important as where you do play!" less...
