Customer Testimonials

The instructors here are phenomenal. My kids love coming to their lessons with Lyle and Rich. If you want to introduce your child to music, this is the place! The teachers make it so easy to start playing. That intimidating instrument is not so intimidating after the very first day with these guys! I have watched my shy, overly cautious 10 year old just blossom into a more confident kid in the past 6 months. Great place with great instructors!

I have personally witnessed the magic Rich has created from the students he has taught and is currently teaching. I can see some of his students going on to big things in the future. Rich is also an accomplished musician himself and is multi-talented in various instruments. On a personal note, you would be crazy not to check out Joyful Music. I highly doubt you will be sorry.

My son Mitch has taken drum lessons from Rich for the past 2 ½ years. It has been a great experience as Rich has nurtured and mentored my son and his musical abilities. He is honest and trustworthy.

The addition of Rich Germaine and Joyful Noise Music has been such a blessing for my family. Rich has been instructing my six year old son for 7 months on the drums and the growth my son is experiencing is amazing. I of all people know how difficult it can be to work with my son, but the patient and gentle approach Rich employs is providing much more than just an exceptional education in music. We are proud of our son’s musical growth and are comforted by knowing his mentor possesses a positive moral character. Thank you Rich Germaine and Joyful Noise Music School.

My sons have been taking guitar and drums from Rich Germaine for 2 years and have enjoyed every minute. Rich helps then master songs they are passionate about along with all the basic rudiments. I highly recommend Rich, he takes the time needed with each student to ensure they understand their instrument of choice and have fun.

Our instructor is amazing and my daughter LOVES her drum lessons! I recommend Joyful Noise for anyone at any level.
