Percussionist/DJ/Educator/Performer in NYC Seeking Opportunities

Fam, friends, fans, and future collaborators!

I am seeking equipment sponsorship/endorsement opportunities for my professional work in drumming, teaching, and performing.  I have been teaching drum set since 1999, and have had a significant increase in opportunities to teach and provide rhythm percussion in the past 5 years in New York City and Long Island at studios, schools, workshops, after-school programs, public libraries, outdoor events, classes, community events, and more.  I have been DJing professionally since 2002, and continue to provide music for events, parties, clubs, bars, galleries, and community events.

photo-1 (1) IMG_20120919_135333 IMG_0885

My needs at this time are DRUMS and PERCUSSION.  I currently teach an average of 40-50 students per week and travel to facilities with a pushcart of varied percussion instruments that I’ve acquired and maintain through heavy use.

Any help in finding a suitable business/entity for ambassadorship is greatly appreciated, and partnership is not limited to drum manufacturers.  Companies/small businesses of any kind may provide support in exchange for promotion, advertising, commercials during broadcasts and live events, product recognition, web ads/listings on site, and endorsement of service/products.  A relationship with a company would provide for mutual marketing, advertising, and promotional opportunities for future progress and development toward a mutual gain in business.

My work is as an independent musician/DJ, freelance teaching artist, and rhythm percussion instructor.  I am always seeking gigs and opportunities to work.  I am hoping that by spreading the word, and remaining committed to learning, building, and advancing my work, I can build my business further and my ability to invest in advertising, marketing, better equipment, etc.

If you have any interest/info/ideas, please contact me at jojoSOULaudio@gmail.com.

References, reviews, employer info, videos, audio, curriculum, all available at request.

Great time at “Jammin’ with jojo” Workshop, GSBDance!

Image We had a great time at the “Jammin’ with jojo” Workshop at Great South Bay Dance Studio this past Saturday, 10/20.  The class had about 10 students, all singing, drumming, dancing, and enjoying!  We learned about the beat in music, counting 1-2-3-4, marching, dancing, singing our names, and even sang and played along to pop hits the children suggested- “Call Me Maybe”!

Thanks to all who came, parents who brought their children, and THANKS TO MY YOUNG DRUMMERS!  I can’t wait until the next workshop!  GO GSBDANCE!

Proud to be teaching at Great South Bay Dance Studio!

Today I begin teaching Mommy and Me, Drum Workshops, and accompanying dance ensembles with live percussion at Great South Bay Dance!

The studio is brand new, the staff is exceptional, and the privilege to be invited to teach and drum at this studio makes me proud to do what I do!

Thanks for all your support!
