Joey has not only helped my son increase his skills but also his enthusiasm for drums. We look forward to signing up with Joey again.

Joey did a great job. He's a great guy and an amazing guitarist.
Most importantly, he teaches you the things you want to learn, with music you love.

Wow. All I can say is that I am completely amazed. The first session gave me so much valuable information about myself. I took my assessments online and was so amazed. You get to see an in depth look at your overall health with the assessments. The online assessments tell you more than any other personal trainer, health coach, or even doctor will tell you. Valuable information.

With Joey's help, I was able to lose weight in a natural way without beating myself up. I lost my cravings and Joey made me realize that working out hard actually makes you hold onto weight. I'm so glad I don't have to beat myself up in the gym just to come home craving food. My mood has improved and it's just been a blessing to learn from Joey.

I never heard of ELDOA and to me it seemed like another take on yoga, but when I tried it with Joey on my first session, man it was difficult. It was so hard that I couldn't imagine getting benefit from it. However 30 minutes or so after Joey left, my back pain was gone! I have had horrible back pain for years and tried many things including chiropractic, exercise, and anything you could imagine. Everytime I see Joey, I make more progress. He teaches you how to do all of this on your own which is awesome, but I love having Joey there to make those tiny adjustments and to make sure everything is going well. If you have back pain or want better posture, go see Joey.

Joey was absolutely amazing! He was able to help me feel much better physically, mentally, and emotionally in a short amount of time. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to true health. Everything he taught me I have been able to use on my own, but I keep coming back to him because I always learn something new that makes my life even better. I would highly recommend him to anyone, healthy or not!

I have been taking guitar lessons from Joey for about 4 months now and let me tell you it is a joy! Joey not only know music, music theory, and musical techniques, he is very passionate about it. He is very patient and can lead you down the path to help you achieve your goals regardless of the experience you currently have with your instrument. He is up front with you that learning to play is not magic, it requires hard work. I am 59 years old and finally decided learn to how to play the guitar after messing around with it on and off over the years. Joey has already got me playing the guitar solo from Maybe I'm Amazed and the intro riff to Purple Haze. He is also teaching me scales and music theory. I am having a blast! I would recommend Joey to anyone in any age group who is serious about learning to play. Thanks, Joey! Jeff Emerson
