Welcome to JR Drumming

original (56).jpg

I am very happy and excited to announce that I have very recently been named as a Premier Drums endorsed artist!

Please click here to visit my artist page on the Premier Percussion site.


The new equipment in the studio offers a significant upgrade in the form of a brand new Premier Genista Maple kit, ensuring that students have the best possible playing experience using a top flight professional instrument. This beautiful drum kit is supplemented with an assortment of Zildjian cymbals to fit any musical preference.


I have also recently started working with Bill Sanders practice pads to extend this top quality approach to all aspects of drumming practice. Bill Sanders pads have been used exclusively for nearly two decades by Military band drummers because they offer the most accurate representation of a snare drums rebound response and offer a best in class experience for my students.

"The most effective music teacher I have ever met. Seriously! - Joe is very focused, doesn't waste time, his advice is clear and to the point. What I like is his flexibility. Many teachers stick to their own teaching program and when a self taught person comes to them, all they can offer is one of their standard lessons, which is a complete waste of time. I can already play three different instruments and when I came to Joe, he adapted immediately and offered me the most effective improvised lesson I had ever had."
