Notable associations include the heavy metal band Gypsyhawk, pop singer Ryan Beaty, and hip-hop artist Doja Cat. His journey also extended to teaching drums and production, with experiences both independently and at institutions such as the Garnish Music Academy on Melrose Blvd.

In 2020, Joe returned to his roots in Las Vegas, where his family resides. His father remains an active bass player and guitarist in the local jazz scene. As a scion of a family steeped in musical tradition, Joe's passion for music has been a constant throughout his life. He has accumulated a wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience as a working musician, viewing his role as a teacher as his responsibility to pass down the art to future generations.

Joe considers this not only his vocation but also a duty to honor his teachers and the legendary drummers who paved the way before him. He looks forward to serving our drum students at School of Rock Las Vegas West and School of Rock Green Valley.

Reviews

I am so thankful for School of Rock!

Our son has been taking guitar here for the past three years. The team at School of Rock is fabulous. My son loves learning from them and loves performing in the shows. If my son had more hours in the day, he'd probably want to go to School of Rock on a daily basis.

It's a REAL rock show!

My 10-year-old daughter has been playing electric guitar here since she was eight and she's developed so much confidence. The shows they do are amazingly well-produced. This isn't like going to watch a bunch of kids playing recorders in a school gym.

What more could you want for an 11-year-old?!

My daughter sings at School of Rock and she feels confident, safe and empowered. It's a great way to socialize kids away from their normal social circles. I'm so happy to have a place for my daughter where the peer pressure is positive and constructive.

I wish this place was around when I was learning to play!

Like a lot of kids, it was a bit of a challenge to find an activity that put a fire in my son's belly. We signed up for a trial lesson at School of Rock and the rest is history! I would recommend School of Rock to anyone whose child shows any interest at all in playing music.
