For many years before I was a pro harmonica player I was a rock & blues singer/frontman person. We'll study all aspects of being a rock vocalist, from belting out classic rock 'n' roll classics to interpreting soulful ballads.

Great teacher! I've been dabbling with harp for many years, but I couldn't believe how quickly I improved when I started lessons with Joe. We worked on all aspects of harp: the importance of playing tastefully, and of not playing; how to stand, how to breathe; technical aspects, like proper use of mics and what amps work for harp. After just a few lessons my band mates were stunned at my improvement. I've already recomended him to another player.

I've worked with Joe in our band Night Watch Paradox since 2014. He is a consummate band mate and amazingly versatile harmonica player. We play a wide variety of original songs drawing from many musical genres. Joe is able to find the perfect harmonica part to suit each song, whether it's a wailing solo in a blues harp style, or a tasteful and haunting melody on a chromatic harp.

If you're looking for an experienced and accomplished harmonica teacher who will show you the basics, but then take your playing beyond the usual and predictable harmonica tunes, then you should give Joe a call.

Experience

Harmonica, Music Performance and Oral Presentation Coach
Jan 1990 - Present

Self Employed (NOTE: Will travel to N. VA. locations only)

I've been coaching beginners who want to give that harp that's been sitting in a drawer for years a shot, to seasoned musicians who wanted to add harp to their repertoire. My experience to date and prior to coaching has been playing and recording with acts from various genres around the globe. I'm college trained in oral presentation: Individual or group, business or dramatic. Also as a retired professional photographer, I've listened to hundreds of presentations and am able to draw from the experiences of all those examples, some great and some with room for improvement.
