Joey started playing drums as soon as he could find something to hit pots and pans with, though his first musical training wouldn’t begin until he was 9 and joined the school band. At 15, he studied for three years of jazz with Frank Wilson. He continued his studies in the Citrus College Music Performance Program where over the next five years he’d play jazz, pop, and rock styles.
Currently, Joey is studying with Forrest Rice, plays for the progressive rock band Stormlight, and has been teaching for Valverde since 2011.
