What an awesome find! Josh is full of enthusiasm and has really inspired my daughter with his method of teaching. My daughter can't wait for her lessons each week and improves so much during the course of the lesson. And by the way, Josh is an absolutely amazing drummer - so much fun to listen to him!Oct 9, 2018Verified

Josh is extremely knowledgable and fun to work with. After our first lesson, I already felt confident in playing basic rock-and-roll grooves, and I'm extremely excited to see where we go from there!Jul 30, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In terms of teaching, I like to first get a sense of the student’s and parent’s (where applicable) goals for the lessons. In addition, I like to know what type of music the student likes and what previous musical background he/she has. I then work on building/refining the foundation of technique as well as playing musical examples to keep things fun and moving in a positive direction. In regards to performances, I like to ask the client what type of music they enjoy, what type of music they are looking to have at the event (any specific bands or artists to cover), and what the overall atmosphere of the event is - formal, semi-formal, or casual. From there, we work together every step along the way to ensure the live entertainment is exactly what the client is looking for and that everyone is happy!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I took 5 years of piano lessons from age 7-12 at Indian Hill Music School, have taken 11 years of drum lessons (pretty much consistently on a weekly basis), and then went on to graduate from Berklee College of Music with cum laude honors and with two (2) degrees - one in Drum Performance the other in Electronic Production & Design. I also was trained in music education/as a music teacher at Indian Hill Music School (in Littleton, MA), The West End House Boys & Girls Club (in Allston, MA), & the Boston Public Schools' Counseling & Intervention Center in Roslindale, MA.
