My name is Joe Nelson. I am a graduate from the University of Montevallo with a bachelors degree in music. I studied music theory and classical guitar for four years at the university. I also played in many bands around the Birmingham, Alabama area that has given me experience in many different musical genres. My teaching approach is based around what the student wants to get out of the lessons. I tailor my teaching around what the students want to get out of music.
As of fall 2016 I began a graduate study of improvisation at Mills College in Oakland California. Please feel free to message me with any questions!
