I prefer a holistic approach to studying arranging and composition. One day we might analyze a string quartet by Ravel and the next we might dig into some horn parts for a funk chart. You can apply the same core compositional concepts to any genre or setting!

Very patient with those trying to learn, and a very fun person to talk to, whether it be about the instrument or anything else.

Joe is a fun, professional and talented teacher! He gave me advice and etudes that really helped me play interesting breaks at gigs. Have your questions and goals ready to tell him, and he will give you exactly what you need to sound better. He is very intuitive and understanding, and he will use every minute of your time efficiently with practical exercises that work. He was also very responsible, dependable, easy to reach and punctual. I'm scheduling more lessons with him!
