Would you like to study with a Concert Pianist / Composer with graduate degrees from the renowned Juilliard School?

If you do, than why not with a winner and laureate of multiple international competitions such as the International Canada Recording Competition, Beethoven International Competition (Austria, Vienna), The New York Philharmonic Competition and others? If you find a teacher who successfully competed in the field, why not one who also had been respected enough to be invited to judge it? I served as judge on competition juries for the National Teachers Association and many other competitions.

Should you get a teacher who is In high demand as a master teacher, lecturer and educator at many music festivals such as Utah Music Festival, Milwaukee Music Festival and others around the world? Requested for knowledge and expression as an editor of professional music publications at Oxford University in the two volume compendium of music knowledge and history with ...

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.
Catherine K.
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.
Donna
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.

I just received my Bachelors in Cello Performance from the Eastman School of Music, and will be pursuing my Masters at the New England Conservatory in the fall. I've been playing cello for over 10 years and have been doing student teaching for about 5 years. I focus on building up great technique in my students, but more importantly, I want to help my students feel more connected to the music they play, and ultimately use their technique to express themselves. The best teachers, for me, don't just teach you how to play the notes, but also how to find your own meaning in the music that you play- no matter the difficulty level of the piece you're playing!

I use the Suzuki method for most beginner/intermediate students, but I'm also sensitive to what the student wants. I'm a firm believer that the student should always enjoy what they are practicing! I want to build up healthy, solid technique in my students, but I encourage my students to find pieces they themselves are interested ...

About Isaac

I am a very experienced classical cellist currently studying cello performance at Eastman, and I've been there for about 2 years now. As a student, my aim is to provide valuable, affordable lessons and teach my students everything they need to know in order to improve their musicianship. Students

"Jahcee is AMAZING!! She is patient, perceptive and aware of each of her students gifting independently and in a group. Jahcee has a way of making you feel warm, welcomed and wanted! Her down to earth and humorous character allows you to easily feel comfortable and confident to release your gift, talent and abilities.
Jahcee gives practical instruction to her students and caters to each students learning style. She meets you where you are and assists you in elevating yourself to where your gift requires you to be! I absolutely LOVE her!
Jahcee does give homework and tests you during the next sessions which speaks to her requirement of accountability from each student.
Jahcee will gently push you beyond your comfort zone and out of the proverbial box, however, she will only go as far as you allow her.
I cannot express enough how amazing she is as a person which filters through to her professional artistic craft!
If you want a caring and gentle yet down to earth and structured trainer, do not hesitate to reach out to Jahcee! You will be blown away by the experience and love that she expels naturally! It is truly an honor to be trained by such an Amazing and Experienced Woman!"

"I was fortunate enough to take lessons from Ahmad for a number of months last summer. Unfortunately I wasn't able to continue due to personal reasons, but my experience with him was wonderful and very fruitful.

I've been playing for a very long time, and sometimes in my position its hard to recognize your weaknesses and figure out where to make progress. Ahmad was able to talk to me openly and honestly about where my deficiencies were without making me feel bad in any way. He was encouraging and had a plan! I was able to make immediate progress on some very fundamental aspects of guitar that had been holding me back for a long time.

I don't think I've ever seen a more organized and efficient instructor, and it really helps in making incremental progress over the short term, and taking major strides over the long term. I'd highly recommend Ahmad to anyone looking for guitar lessons with disciplined and well-thought-out lesson plans. His focus on technique and fundamentals can help anyone through any style."
