Hello! Thanks for checking out my page. I've been playing guitar for over a decade and mandolin for about four years. I studied jazz with the Applied Musicians Program at Mesa College, which has changed my view on playing music across all instruments and styles. I've been playing other genres for a lot longer though! I can teach you pop, bluegrass, folk, rock, and more. Let me know what your short or long term goals are and we will get there by learning repertoire of your choice that is appropriate for the skill level we are working on. If there is a time that works best for you that isn't listed let me know! Feel free to contact me and ask any questions you may have!

Joe is the most knowledgable & relatable instructor I've ever had the experience of learning from.

Joe's knowledge of guitar is expert and spans a wide variety of genres. It's rare to find a guitarist who considers phrasing and dynamics while playing, but Joe does exactly this, breathing life into all his licks with mindful control over volume and articulation. I've learned a lot about Blues chord progressions, and I'm sure a guitarist of any genre will learn a lot from him. Highly recommended.

Joe was a great teacher! I had no experience with the mandolin and he was really helpful with explaining concepts and tailored the lessons for my personal goals and music preferences. Great experience overall, I highly recommend taking lessons with Joe!
