Hello and welcome! My name is Josh Merhar and I want to help you become a better drummer by creating drum lessons for drummers of any skill level

A little about me...

I started playing drums in 2001, when I was 10 years old, and began gigging in 2008. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in 2014. I currently reside in Boston, where I teach drums privately and play with two bands -- Vitamin Sun and GEPH.

My YouTube channel features several lesson videos that have received overwhelmingly positive feedback. I've received a heap of messages asking for more lesson videos and I'm ready to deliver! 

Why Patreon?

In case you didn't know, living in Boston is EXPENSIVE. And being a working musician doesn't necessarily bring in a 7-figure salary (despite popular opinion). Your contributions allow me to make awesome content AND keep food in my belly.

Playing and teaching drums are my absolute favorite things to do. Turning my passions into my career is a huge risk and takes a ton of work, but I've come too far to turn back. I can't see myself doing anything else, anyway. 

What you get

I create lesson videos covering a swath of topics including (but certainly not limited to) improving time, odd-meter playing, polyrhythms/polymeters, building vocabulary, improvising, and part writing. The more you contribute, the more material you'll have at the tips of your sticks. Additional content includes transcriptions, supplemental exercises, and a constantly growing library of drum set etudes ranging from easy peasy to super challenging. 

Polls will help determine the topics of future lessons. Hearing directly from patrons will allow me to bring you the content you want to see. Community is a big part of this. I want to hear from you! 

Thank you so much for checking out my page. I look forward to helping you become a ridiculously good drummer!
