Joel J. Tampa, FL

I earned my B.A. in music performance on guitar. I am classically trained. I believe very strongly that classical technique enhances all areas of guitar playing, therefore I embrace all areas of guitar playing. I have been playing for 13 years.

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 ...

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.

Martin was very gentle in mood and helpful. He didn't waste time and I felt comfortable talking with him immediately. He wasn't at all intimidating and that helped me feel comfortable making noise and telling him about myself. He focused entirely on me. Perfect manner. The HW he gave me was not overbearing and makes perfect sense in retrospect. He gave me confidence that I could achieve my goals much sooner than I expect. I'm hoping I can stick with him. He knows my technique is good, which it is, and I look forward to working with him. Just after getting back home, I really feel like practicing.

Great instructor overall

Marty was a great instructor to me. Taught me a lot in the 4 lessons I had with him. Very professional and knowledgable in Bass. Unfortunately because my schedule changing I could not keep him as an instructor. My only gripe would be that his studio room gets a little cramped and my guitar sometimes would hit things. Other than that. I would definitely recommend him.

William B. Dunedin, FL

The guitar is an incredibly fun instrument. It takes only three chords to unlock hundreds of well known songs. I have been helping many people learn new songs and techniques for over ten years, in turn I have made many friendships, I have traveled, and gained a good amount of knowledge and experience to pass on to you. The lessons I offer will be unique to each student based on your interests and pace of learning.
