I teach beat matching, turntable fine-tuning and repertoire selection to help you become the DJ you aspire to be. I own crates and crates of vinyl records and CDs, and I have DJ'd all over the world to enthusiastic crowds, so I can teach you to attain a real joy and skill in the art of turntablism.

She is firm and making my daughter do her best. She pushes her to be the best. She's offering suggestions to help my daughter be a better piano player. She has patience, and is very caring. Couldn't ask for a better piano teacher for my daughter

My preferred method of DJing is through Ableton Live, because I believe it offers an unparalleled potential for creativity. I will teach the basics of how to use Ableton (if necessary), how to prepare a library of tracks for your DJ sets, how to mix and match effortlessly between songs, how to create live mashups on the spot, and the essentials of mixing. I spin mostly electronic and hip hop music in my DJ sets, but any and all genres are welcome!

I'm a jack of all trades! I started DJing in college for fun. That was back in 2011.

Flash forward to today and weddings, private events, and my own DJ gigs are the main way I make most of my income. I have 4 weddings booked already in October alone, some booked for 2019, and have done over 20 weddings in the last year.

If you're not interested in weddings, no fear. Those are great fun and a way to earn some money. But what's even more fun is playing your own shows. I've been lucky enough to have just signed with a booking agency for my artist name, Pure Colors, so I think I can teach you a thing or two about how to slay the dancefloor!

Here's what I know:

- How to DJ in Serato (currently using)
- How to DJ in Traktor
- Ableton DJing (less proficient)

Why I actually know what I'm doing:

- I do this all the time. It's taken years of practice to become a great DJ. I used to think it was easy, but I've come to learn that with anything, anyone can be an okay DJ. But ...

Joey truly understands music on a level that is so impressive. He taught me so much about drumming and how it works. Not only is he a great drummer, but he is a great person with a fantastic work ethic and teaching methods. He’s truly the best in the biz! Thanks Joey! I now know how to drum and I love it.

Always wanted to get into music production for the longest time, so I downloaded Ableton and decided to give it a go....and it looked like hieroglyphics to me. I tried to watch some youtube videos on the matter and it still made no sense. So I did some research and figured that an in-person teacher would probably be my best bet.

That's when I found Joey - and this guy knows his stuff. He's been producing for a few years now and after listening to his music, I could tell he was the real deal. I just started my lessons not long ago, but so far he's helped me in Ableton tremendously. I'm able to understand the various plug-ins, create new sounds when I get that creative "spark" instead of just bumbling around, and now I can actually finish a song.

I fully recommend Joey, he's super patient and has made this process just so much easier for me.

Joey was an awesome teacher for my son. He was able to connect with him and help keep him focused on his drills and lessons. Joey is very reliable and knowledgeable as a teacher. I highly recommend him!
