Taking guitar lessons and having Joe as my instructor has been a life and career changing event for me. Being in the Adult Rock Ensemble class with Joe has taught me more about how to deal with immediate changes at work, dealing with employees, as well as having fun playing music with friends.

I have taken lessons with Joe, through many different musical endeavors, voice, piano, ukulele, rock band.. for multiple years. He is an amazing and patient individual. He sees the potential in his students and brings it out of them. If there is anything you want to learn about music he is the best!
