About Joe Crawley
Get to know Joe Crawley
I‘ve been a passionate drummer for 14 years and have been teaching for 5. I have studied the snare drum and drumkit formally with local teacher/performerTrent Renshaw, covering all contemporary styles ranging from Rock, Funk, to Jazz. I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in percussion performance through NOVA and George Mason University. I have performed in various original and cover bands in the D.C area. Currently, I am hitting the skins for VA based heavy metal band Deranged Theory. I am looking for energetic, fun loving students of all ages with a drive to learn and grow as musicians! My teaching approach includes a strong emphasis on technique and rudimental studies, as well as time-keeping and developing the students ear through both reading and playing along to great music.
