About Joshua Taylor

A Berklee College of Music graduate and scholarship recipient - I have been drumming for over 15 years studying under drumming greats such as Alberto Netto, Jackie Santos, Neal Smith and Henrique De Almeida. I have performed and worked in the US for the past 6 years in various studios and venues working on the engineering side with artists such as Paul Simon, Mick Jagger, CHVCHES and Steve Gadd.

I teach all levels of drummers from complete beginners, those working towards entering a college such as Berklee to those just looking for some fresh inspiration. My lessons are truly personal and I offer a complimentary first session in order to draw up a plan together for what drumming journey we want to take. In my home studio we can record playalongs and solos to build your portfolio - from performing your first song to perfecting your double pedal technique. Whilst I by no means believe exams are integral to drumming progress I understand their significance and do incoprorate them into my syllabus where appropriate.

Get in touch and lets plan your drumming journey!
