About Joe

I began music in Winona, MN at age 9 with a pair of drumsticks and went on to become a world champion in 2003 with the Blue Stars drum and bugle corps. I do all things percussion and have been playing for 20 years but these days I do a lot more than just drums.

My time spent studying Music Education at the University of North Texas expanded my musical horizons adding piano and guitar among other tools of the trade. The majority of my students these days are piano students young and old but I love teaching a variety of lessons including guitar and ukelele.

I currently teach piano, drums, and guitar at a local music store in the Twin Cities. I also teach the Hastings drumline in the summer and fall and the Red Wing indoor drumline in the winter time.

Drum
The Good, the Bad, & the Drummy

Joe is knowledgable in percussion and pretty flexible with instruction. He identifies strength areas and assigns appropriate work. He also showed me how to install drum heads and gave me some tricks on care and maintenance of my equipment. Of the three drum teachers I've had, I like Joe the best. I have been playing drums for 3 years and I am 12 years old.

Fun Teacher!

Joe is a patient teacher and a highly knowledgeable and gifted musician who makes learning the piano safe, fun and easy. B.F., age six, is reading notes and able to play a few songs on his own after only a few months of weekly sessions. In the words of that six-year-old, "Joe is funny and I like his games. He lets me talk about the weekends and Wii and he teaches me the piano." B.F. leaves his lessons smiling and wanting to come back to Joe to hang out and learn even more. We highly recommend Joe if you are looking for a caring and fun teacher who teaches in a positive manner, who gets results from the student, who lets the student pick their own music, and who helps the student have confidence and pride in their progressing musical accomplishments.

This has been a truly enjoyable experience.

Don was teaching several of my charter high school students in guitar/vocal and music production. After a quick observation of his classes, I signed up for lessons as well. I am an adult student and have been taking guitar/vocal performance lessons with Don for three years. This has been a truly enjoyable experience. Don combines proper technique with enough creativity to make our lessons fun. Don is an inspirational teacher. He tuned into my musical tastes and tailored his lessons to my desires. I highly recommend Don to any adult or youth students interested in furthering their skills and enjoyment of music performance.

Family Fun on Ukelele and Strumstick

Don has been wonderful to work with as a Ukelele and Strumstick instructor. I had an idea to get music lessons for my husband and 5 year old daughter as a Christmas gift. The thought was to have special Daddy and daughter time; sharing something that my husband loves to do. Don has worked with us to create a whole experience for them around music lessons. Don has succeeded in building an environment for our daughter to enjoy the music lesson experience. The first time she played 'hot crossed buns' brought a tear of joy to my eyes. He has even included me in the group lessons on Strumstick. My husband has expanded his knowledge of musical instruments and enhanced his playing skills with Don's skillful instruction. Don has made the whole experience delightful for our family.

Rick W. Minneapolis, MN

The Ukulele is tuned exactly like the top 4 strings of a guitar capoed up 5 frets, and the 4th string is tuned an octave higher. All the shapes one learns on one or the other are transferable, though the chord and note names change (up/down 5 semitones/frets).

About Rick

Rick's been teaching Pop Styles Guitar at the Mount Olivet School of Music in South Minneapolis (M-Th) ever since graduating with a degree in Music from the University of Minnesota (T.C. and Duluth Campuses) in 2003. He also teaches traveling lessons to students in the south and southwest metro areas. Rick plays around town in 3 bands and also does the occasional Musical Pit Orchestra and Wedding gig. He also taught at Dayjams Rock Music camp in St. Paul for the five summers of its existence. In his spare time he writes YA Stories and Musicals, as well as running a Songwriting and Music Theory Blog about Tonal Trends in popular music, and a Guitar Curriculum Blog based on Karate Belts.

Rick has been great in writing out (and instructing me how to play) music that I have enjoyed... Really knowledgeable and patient... It was a really good experience.. I would continue, but my schedule has become too cluttered..

Rick taught our 7-year old son for quite a few months, and did a fantastic job. We were pleased with his energy, enthusiasm, and ability to connect with young people.

We were sad when our son decided that he'd like to take a break from music and play more tennis, but hope that this, his first musical experience, will inspire him to return to it at some later point.

I highly recommend Rick.

I have three years of experience with the ukulele, but many more when you consider its similarities to the guitar. The ukulele is as simple or complicated as you make it, and I am dedicated to helping you achieve the goals and level of skill you are looking for with this instrument.

About David

Howdy! My name is David, and I am an experienced musician and English educator.
On the music side, I've been making some kind of noise ever since I got my first guitar at the age of 6. I am well-educated in theory, technique, and applications for all things musical, but my focus is and always has been guitar. I have a lot of live and studio playing experience, and have excellent knowledge of the technical aspects of the instrument, such as amps, pedals, wiring, and more. I love everything about the instrument, and my goal is to help you learn to love it too!
The English language has always been my strong suit when it comes to schooling. I've participated in various creative writing contests, tutored peers at the high school and college level, and have been enrolled in ...

David is very patient, especially with an active, non focused 7 year old. He has great songs that are catchy for a beginner. He is also very poised with showing what the beginner will be able to do when he practices. We'll be asking for more lessons!
Jonny P. Saint Paul, MN

I will tailor classes to meet your needs and wishes. I love the Ukulele. It is one of the few instruments that can be picked up and played for the first time with a sense of satisfaction. I teach all different methods and fundamentals from the origins of the ukulele to what it can become in your hands. Structure or no structure will be your choice. Let your instrument speak for itself. No bars. No holding back and no doubts.

About Jonny

I have experience in all forms and methods. From the bare fundamentals to hardcore, punk and jazz I am a man of many hands. A jack of all trades and a master at most. Music is more than a passion to me. I would love nothing more than to pass along all that I have to offer. I am humble, sweet and understanding. How about we grow together?
