About Joel

Hi! I have been teaching for over seven years and am no stranger to the stage. While majoring in music performance at the University of West Georgia, I performed with jazz ensembles, guitar quartets, and percussion ensembles. I also performed many solo classical guitar recitals. The only thing I love more than performing, is teaching and sharing music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons generally include three parts with content depending on your level of experience: technique, repertoire, and theory. I am an enthusiastic although laid back teacher, however I do push my students in order for them to realize themselves as a musician. I like to have fun with lessons because music is fun and I enjoy it. I hope you do too!

Joel has been an EXCELLENT teacher! He is perceptive and very good at reading his student. He knows how to make them feel comfortable with whatever level they are at. He is extremely patient and encouraging. Joel knows how to inspire his students. The time in the lesson flies by quickly and the student walks out feeling very good about their progress, anxious to practice what they have learned and looking forward to the next lesson.

Joe is a real professional talent and teacher. He is extremely patient and thorough with beginners like me. He takes time to cover basic guitar instrument basics, guitar music theory, scales, notes, etc. He is very flexible and will always go over lessons that require review with the student. Being new to instrument lessons I feel very comfortable with Joe's suggestions for me personally for areas that require practice. His videos are very informative as well as other documents regarding reading music, sessions, clefs, etc. His ability to relate his professional experiences into the lessons make the experience that much more valuable. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

We have been using Joe for guitar lessons for several years. My oldest Son started with Joe and also participated in his Rock Shop events. Although he is no longer taking lessons, he was playing the guitar last evening and I asked him what song he was playing? It was his original piece and it sounded excellent. The lessons with Joe really paid off. My youngest Son is currently taking lessons from Joe and we are confident that he too will be able to write and play his own music in the future. Joe is very flexible with our changing schedule and always follows up regarding our appointments. We highly recommend Joe to families with kids of all ages.

Great overview of the blues and classical history

I took lesson with Joe Mcintosh for a little over a year with the intent of leaning the basics of guitar playing and specifiaclly the blues. I got a lot of practical information and knowledge from Joe in various aspects of music and its history. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and the value it carried.

Joe is a very accomplished player and very patient with his students. I would highly recommend him for anyone with any skill level.

About Joshua

I have been playing music since I was 9 years old. I studied piano with Robin Kaplan, Mark Evans, Lee Shaw, and Dr. Gary Bush. In 2004 I completed a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Composition and Production from the Purchase Conservatory at Purchase College in West Chester, NY. Recently I completed a very successful tour as pianist for the United States Marine Corps Band, based in Cherry Point, NC. My performance experience includes jazz, R&B, reggae, classical, rock, funk, country, and DCI style marching band. I am very inspired by the vast world of music and I encourage my students to explore many genres of music in their studies.

Fantastic teacher!

My son has been taking piano lessons from Josh for almost a year now. My son loves going to learn from him and Josh tailors his lessons to meet the needs of my son. My son is eight years old and can play by ear what he hears. He is learning to read the music and Josh still allows time for him to play and perfect songs that he hears. Each lesson is packed with an amazing amount of information with not just only learning what the notes are, but rhythm, beats, and real world application of why he is teaching what he is teaching him. We are very fortunate to have a such a talented teacher teaching our son. :)

About Nicole

Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an ...

To describe Mercedes in one word: "Awesome!" She is very patient and encouraging. I started taking singing lessons later in life and have always been very shy about it. Not only has she helped me to break out of my shell, but she is extremely knowledgeable and I have learned so much. She has been gifted with this wonderful talent in music and voice and I am truly blessed to have her as my teacher.

She is wonderful! She really knows how to reach children which is that she has such a gentle soul. She welcomed us strangers to her home and opened my son up to several types of music he never thought about before. We are leaving the area which is why we had to say goodbye. She is absolutely meant to teach.

wonderful teacher

Mercedes is an enthusiastic and patient teacher! My children have only been taking piano lessons from her for less than 6 months, but there is a significant improvement in their abilities already. She encourages them to play with feeling, never overwhelms them with too much work, and is always so upbeat at the lessons.

She is Cuban, so sometimes you have to listen carefully, because of her accent, but she speaks English well.
