Information About Joe - Leeds teacher - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Joe:
Music has always been my biggest passion. I have been playing the drums since 2002, and teaching professionally since 2009.
With over ten years experience playing and performing in funk, soul, jazz and rock bands, I have performed and toured all around the UK and Europe from the age of 12.
Currently working as a full time professional musician, I specialise in one-to-one drum kit tuition. As well as teaching privately, I spend two days a week teaching drum kit at a Performing Arts Specialist secondary school in North Yorkshire.
As well as passing my own Grade 8 exam at the age of 16, I have passed pupils through drum kit exams from Grade 1 to Grade 8 with a 100% first-time pass rate. Guidance on GSCE and A-Level music performance, composition and theory is also available depending on the students wishes.
My professional experience also includes leading drum and percussion workshops in primary schools. Djembes, congas, bongos and an array of African percussion can be provided where necessary for groups of between 5 and 30 pupils.
Further specialist subjects include music production and technology, composition and DJing. I am available to provide tuition in these areas, having been an electronic music producer and international DJ for the last four years.
As well as learning what it takes to become both a successful solo and ensemble drummer, my students will learn and develop all-around musicianship, using drumming skills and techniques to broaden their wider musical understanding.
Whether you want a distinction in your Grade 8 drum exam, or you are picking up sticks for the very first time, my lessons will make you the best drummer and musician you possibly can be.
Playing or practicing an instrument should never be a chore. My promise is that every time you sit down at your kit you are constantly improving, but most importantly enjoying yourself.

Joe quickly figured out where I needed support and tailored our lessons to this. He even called the University to get clarity on the audition.
Joe is a top guy and fun to work with, our 2 hour lessons were lots of fun and time flew by.
I passed my audition and have picked up new skills I use in my band.
Whatever level you are at give Joe a go, you will not regret it.
It was a pleasure to work with you, good luck with your upcoming gig at the O2!
