Josh Mellinger

Multi-Instrumental Percussionist


I teach percussion to beginners, intermediate and advanced students alike. If you are interested in lessons with me either in person (in the San Francisco Bay Area) or via Skype (for those living anywhere else in the world) please contact me.

About My
Percussion Lessons

Lessons are 30 or 60 minutes long. Most of my students take one lesson a week, though I also accept students interested in taking lessons once or twice a month.

30 minute lessons are $35 and 60 minute lessons $70.

If you have any questions please feel free to send them my way! 


"It's been a pleasure learning tabla from Josh. He's friendly, patient, and is committed to helping his students improve their skills.
He showed me the techniques and tunes step-by-step, and helped me get more familiar with the instrument.
Even if you're a beginner, I'd recommend Josh

"Josh is a great teacher with lots of patience. He made class comfortable and fun. He is also one of the best multi-instrumental percussionists around.  If you have the opportunity to take lessons from him, do it."
