This is a subject often thought of as akin to magic! Seeing Vladimir Horowitz in late years painfully shuffling to the piano and yet somehow electrifying the audience on the edge of their seats even before he touched the keys of his piano....

What is that secret ingredient that makes the actor on the silver screen the lead role and identifies without a doubt a relationship to the audience that can not be easily defined. Is it leadership? Self awareness of greatness with no false modesty or ego? Is it the experience the audience have had before to know this is going to be a memory of an experience they will never forget? No, it seems these fantastic individuals have that effect on the audience even before they were heard or seen or experienced in performance before. When Barishnikov leaps or walks onto the stage, that energy is a cloak around his shoulders no matter what costume he wears. That super hero cloak of amazing energy is the material we will be exploring and working ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.

I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

First lesson was great. It took a little time setting up and getting to know each other. For a first lesson, I came away with some very useful information on a song I was having a problem with. I like the direction it is going. Looking forward to the next lesson.

Whether you're a seasoned professional but would like some assistance in conquering some performance anxiety issues, or you're just starting out, and would like some insight as to how to prepare for a concert, I can assist you in any aspect of music performance and share with you what you need to practice in order to overcome performance related obstacles.

My expertise are not limited to:
- preparing for a concert, recital or performance of any kind in any environment
-an audition, or a performance in front of a panel of judges
- a concerto: a virtuosic solo work
- musical technique, musicality, and any other aspect of playing that may directly affect your presentation of music.

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

Jonathan has made a great impression with my son. He displays a great combination of patience and encouragement with Nick. I have seen an improvement in his trumpet skills as well as his confidence.

The power of music comes from our capacity to share it. We call it performance, whether alone with a loved one on a beach or surrounded by screaming fans.

To effectively share music involves sharing ourselves with it. When we offer ourselves as conduits for music's beauty, our body becomes a prism uniquely refracting its experience to others. No two performances are identical, and no two performers are alike.

My job is to help you craft techniques for different situations, different performance applications, and particular moments within them. If you're playing at a coffee shop tonight and an online benefit concert the next, I'll help you translate yourself as an artist through whatever medium you choose.

My experience ranges from musical theatre to jazz to rock n' roll to acoustic folk and beyond, from intimate venues to enormous halls, and from vocal performance to piano to guitar to drums and more.

Let's play together.

"My son takes beginning band with Nick. This group of very young players is learning how to hear a piece of music, break it down, play it together, and make it their own. Along the way, Mr. Nick teaches them theory, technique, and joy in playing music. Nick has the patience of a saint. His expertise is in guitar and banjo, but he knows his way around the whole band, and can teach rhythm and technique on a wide range of instruments. I highly recommend. Note, we’ve done lessons both on line and in person. Both were good."

Music History in a Nutshell: And Why it's So Important to Learn

The history of music is a history of aesthetics and trends throughout the centuries. Music follows in the footsteps of the other arts – literature, painting, and architecture – and is usually a result of changes in society that stem from the changing ideas of philosophers, politicians, church, and other leading factors in society. This article aims to provide the beginner musician a nutshell overview of the different periods in music history by discussing the type of music and aesthet …
