· Euphonium · In studio
I've known Joseph for many years, and I can attest that he is an extremely talented, knowledgeable, and professional musician who is sure to get your student's brass playing on the right track. He is extremely approachable and friendly, but will also not shy away from telling your student what he/she needs to hear in order to improve. While he specializes on the Tuba, I studied with him on trombone in college and would recommend him to teach any brass instrument (especially trombone- bass trombone- euphonium- tuba). This guy understands healthy brass playing and can help your student to improve on their instrument (and hopefully begin to enjoy it more in the process)!
