Joel J.

Tampa, FL

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! Literature used in lessons: New Dimensions in Classical ...

I've had several different musical teachers throughout my life and I must say that I never really enjoyed any of them. Classes always seemed boring, far too structured, and like work instead of play. Once I started meeting with Joel though, my perception was greatly changed.

I love learning from Joel because he is enthusiastic and excellent at communicating music theory and technique. It never really feels like we have an exact structure that we have to follow but he always manages to keep me progressing. Regardless if I come in one day and just feel like jamming or if I want to raddle my brain with music theory all lesson, Joel is prepared and happy to do either.

I will highly recommend anyone to Joel that would like to learn to play in the classical style. He keeps the fire alive, truly loves his music, and is very passionate about it. These are the keys that bring beauty, creativity, and fun to the part of music, studying it proficiently, that can be frustrating or boring.

After a decade of failed teachers and being solely self taught, I couldn't be happier that I found a great teacher like Joel.

Joel has been instructing our daughter for several months now, and he has been absolutely wonderful. He is an extremely knowledgeable and patient teacher who also knows when its appropriate to push you out of your comfort zone. He makes the lessons fun and has no problem keeping an eight year old engaged for an entire session. She looks forward to Thursdays because that's Joel Day. You can tell he loves what he does, and that he genuinely cares for his students. For anybody looking for a great instructor, we would highly recommend Joel.

Joel is the nicest guitar teacher ever! During the first lesson he evaluated where I am as a musician and since then he has kept me challenged and helped my improve my skills in just a couple lessons. He's super patient and flexible and makes sure to emphasize proper technique, which is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher.

He is an excellent teacher! Just because you play drums doesn't mean you can teach drums. My son has shown so much growth working with Glenn. He is truly a great teacher and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Christina and I were a good fit. I was reluctant to find a teacher on line, but she turned out to be a pleasant surprise. She's easy to work with, she's patient and her instructional explanations are a monumental plus. I think this will be a long lasting relationship....I highly recommend this young lady.

Christina is an excellent teacher. She is very detailed when
explaining how to play a song in the correct time signature.
I like the fact that she does not move forward until I have
learned where my problem areas are; for example timing.
I would highly recommend Christina as a piano teacher.
