About Joe

Hello! I've been singing since before I can remember and playing instruments for almost as long. I have a passion for music. Whether it's being onstage at York Little Theatre, directing the church choir in Red Lion, or paying with one of several local and regional bands, I love music and performing.

Joe is amazing when he gives vocal lessons. His examples are spot on. His ability to read into your strengths and weaknesses helps you to customise your lesson and focus on those aspects that'll give you quick and sustainable results. Thank you Joe.
Katelyn B.
So far my daughter is pleased and is looking forward to working with Joe. She has only had 1 lesson so far but it was smooth sailing and all went well.

As someone who was nervous and horrible at singing Joe made me feel comfortable and confident.

Through my years of studying the trombone, I have learned from many of the greatest pedagogues in the world about how to cater to each student's individual needs. These teachers include members of the Chicago, Metropolitan Opera, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Lyric Opera symphony orchestras. Using this diverse and insightful wisdom, I have learned that every student has strengths and weaknesses, and I intend to help you gain your confidence through your strengths while also improving upon your weaknesses as a player. The trombone is an exciting and beautiful instrument, and I hope lessons with me will inspire you on your musical journey as well as your own personal journey of hard work and dedication in any facet of your life.

I am a Junior Tenor Trombone Performance Major at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I also play bass trombone, alto trombone, euphonium, and bass trumpet extensively.

Erich is an energetic teacher and a true professional. He helped my son improve his tone within minutes of his guidance. It was especially helpful to hear him play during the lesson, so you can hear the desired tone of the trombone. Erich sent me an email summary of the lesson to recap the lesson highlights, I was very impressed with this addition to detail!

I highly recommend Erich as a fun, patient, and wise teacher.

I look at the pursuit of musicianship as a holistic process. In the first lesson, we establish your goals to help me be a more efficient teacher for you. I find it deeply fulfilling to research new techniques that will benefit my students and teach from material that is grounded in voice science and pedagogy. A typical lesson will involve reinforcement of healthy technique, music theory study, refining repertoire, and creative exploration such as improvisation or songwriting. I urge all of my students to use mindfulness to deepen their joy of music and actively advocate that the study of music can lead to a more conscientious and emotionally intelligent society.

I've graced the stages of some of NYC's most beloved theatres including; The National Black Theatre, The Public Theatre, 13th Street Rep, and HERE Arts Center. I can be seen in a number of films, commercials, and music videos alongside the likes of Shaquille O’Neal. I’ve performed worldwide in places like Athens, GR. I have worked with world-famous directors like Broadway's Kenny Leon and Dennis Hilton-Reid, and received training from some of the world's top acting institutions (The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, CalArts). I have directed regionally and in New York, I teach regularly with The Family Repertory Company (Where I have served as a resident actor and director since 2016), and have students spanning the globe! I strive to acquire as much knowledge about this craft as is possible and to share that gift with the world. A wise man once told me, “The only reason to act is that it hurts too much not to.”

After a long time of searching for an acting coach, I finally met Darius.

His coaching approach is very unique and truly changed my career and skill as an actor. He has a depth of knowledge and is very caring.

I highly recommend Darius.
Jordyn
Taking classes with Darius was tons of fun. Helped me through a few problems with a monologue I needed to learn and helped add another layer to it that I didn't even think of. I definitely recommend taking one of his classes as it'll help you reach into whatever piece you're working on and draw out something new for your character work and overall understanding of the play/film/show. if you're wondering whether you should do it or not, I say, take the class! In the long run, you'll be grateful for the help.

"SD was the voice coach for all three of my children from the ages of 6-16. She trained them for school musicals and talent shows as well as for broadway auditions. She still offers helpful guidance when needed during their college and post college years. I would recommend SD as a voice coach for anyone who wants to learn how to feel confident and comfortable singing in front of others. Her insight is not just technical, but also wholistic."

"Ms. Lorna is an excellent teacher. My daughter, Michelle, has learned a lot in a short period of time. As a mother, I did not know the importance of using voice techniques such proper breathing, techniques used to avoid injury to your vocal area, etc. There is so much more we both have learned. Essentially, this has improved her singing ability. I believe she has the potential to succeed at singing with Ms. Lorna as her teacher. She has really improved. Additionally, Ms. Lorna encourages her. Michelle loves taking the singing classes and looks forward to attending each. Thank you!"

Why Children Should Learn Piano as a First Instrument

Music is an underrated but extremely important part of a child’s education. The benefits of learning an instrument go beyond simply having a better lifestyle. Studies have shown how music improves the brain function, hand coordination, self-discipline, and hard-working habits of those who have studied it in their youth. Of all the instruments to choose from, learning piano is arguably the best. Let's look at some reasons why children should learn piano, and what makes this such a great first i …

How Does Violin Restoration Work?

What is Violin Restoration? Violins are can be finely crafted instruments made by master luthiers with decades of experience or machine-made student models put together on an assembly line. These are the two extremes that one can encounter when owning or renting a violin.  There are, of course, many variations of these extremes that will affect the cost and value of these instruments. One thing that all of these different levels of violins have in common is that they come from the workshop or …
