    My son and I can’t speak highly enough of Joel. The fact he is willing to Skype my son’s lesson due to the enforced school closures, speaks volumes for him. He’s friendly and speaks to my son in a cool, clear manner, always focusing on something positive before telling what he needs to do to improve. Even though my son now thinks Joel is much cooler than myself, I would still wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone wishing to learn the drums. (Albie, 9)

    Our 12 year old, whose inspirations for drumming include Travis (Blink) and Dave Grohl (FF) loves his lessons with Joel. Joe is able to teach any age at all levels and genres of music, it is a properly authentic location to hold lessons and his patience (which he needs!) is seemingly endless. Our Son wants to play certain types of music in his lesson which Joel manages to allow whilst also teaching him the basics he needs to progress, he is just about to take his Grade 2 and loving every minute!…

    I have always wanted to play the drums…..and decided to give it a go as a mature student. Joel is great and encourages me, finding out my musical tastes etc and for half and hour a week I am living my dream. A great teacher with a relaxed but helpful manner. I especially love the new drum kit he had delivered last week.

    Toby has been drumming with Joel now for the past two years and it is a fruitful relationship. The new studio adds a professional gloss on what was already a fun time for Toby. Arsenal football aside, pound for pound , Joel is the man.

    My 8 year old son has private drum lessons with Joel at Punch Studios which he really enjoys and looks forward to each week. Joel teaches in a child centred manner, tailoring lessons to individual need, whilst ensuring that the lessons are engaging using Joel’s friendly, fun approach. Each lesson provides my son with practice pieces to work on during the week and Joel is supporting him to work towards his grades – our thanks go to Joel and we cannot recommend Joel enough!!

  6. Jim Spurling says:

    My son who has a profound learning delay, finds a natural outlet in music and especially drumming. Joel has managed to grow and nurture his natural love and talent to the point where he has already performed at school in front of his peers. Joel has the perfect balance between high expectations and knowing what his students are capable of and always making the sessions fun. Thank you for your continued support.

    Infinite patience, an excellent teacher and a talented musician to boot! Her weekly lessons with Joel are the highlight of my 12 year old’s week, and tend to be the only lesson during which she actually concentrates. Joel always takes into consideration the genre of music that appeals to his students, ensuring that lessons not only improve their skills but are entertaining too. Another 10/10 from me!

    My 8 yr old son looks forward to his lessons with Joel each week at school, and the workbook helps us understand what he is covering in the lessons and what he is trying to achieve when he is practising at home. We also asked Joel if he could advise us on a suitable electronic drum kit to buy, and once purchased he kindly did a home visit to set it up correctly. 10/10 for customer satisfaction!

    Really enjoying the lessons with Joel. The teaching environment is relaxed and you can steer the lesson content to what you want to learn, rather than what the tutor wants to teach. Joel still ensures that the rudiments and technique are covered so there’s no escape!
