Who am I...?
My name is Joey and I have been a musician for over 20 years.
To say that music is my life is not a statement I make lightly...it has been such a powerful force in giving me literally everything and everyone I have in my life. From the moment I saw the 5th and 6th grade kids in my elementary school's percussion club, I knew that was what I wanted to do and I quickly fell in love with the art.
20 years later, I am still going strong.
I marched 5 years of D.C.I, won 3 world championships with The Blue Devils, recorded movie soundtracks, learned from the greatest artistic and educational minds in the world, and taught and cliniced at some of the most successful and prestigious music programs around the country. For a more complete summary of my career, visit my About Me page, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
I truly can't wait to meet you all and I am so happy you have found your way here. whether you are choosing to take lessons, checking out my music, or just stop by, I sincerely want to thank you for being part of my journey.

"As someone who has competed with multiple percussion ensembles at a world class level, and therefore has been exposed to many different teachers, I can confidently say that Joey is exceptional when it comes to teaching. He is a master at his instruments, and he has a natural ability to teach that makes every lesson helpful and enjoyable. I consider myself lucky for having had the opportunity to learn from him.
"One thing that makes Joey stand out from other teachers is his ability to teach at all levels. I know many instructors whose own skill is a detriment when it comes to teaching beginners, and I know others who can teach the fundamentals of drumming well, but do not themselves possess the means to teach more advanced concepts. Joey can do both very well. I started taking lessons from him with no prior experience and I quickly saw myself improving. However, even as I grew to be proficient, the lessons never seemed any less worth it."
"If you are looking for quality instruction that will practically guarantee improvement, no matter the prior experience,
I highly recommend Joey Staab!"
