*** Lesson Details ***
Music study helps people young and old to overcome shyness and build confidence. It empowers them as they refine their special talents.
We will study ear training .
My Method: Listen, Sing, Clap, Play, Read and Write. With these tools you can look deeper into the elements that make up music.
Children don't learn to read before they can talk. So why should anyone have to try to read before they can play?
That is how music is taught, traditionally and why a huge percentage of students just quit or have a miserable time with piano lessons. Music should be fun. Period.
We will always have a lot of fun, but there is a lot to do, so we need to be efficient and not waste time. My teaching method is a combination of the best methods I have found. It is backed up with the same solid principles that I received when I was a student myself. If you choose to continue and pursue a classical education at a high level, you will be well-prepared.

*** Specialties ***
I teach people of all ages
first to play by ear and to have fun while they study.
Then I back up ear training with solid theory so they can read and write music.
In school I studied many traditional methods and
I have distilled my own distinct method from them. Though I am classically trained, I specialize in improvisation.
Reda Band for Folklore Arts, Ballon Theater

Great first lessons
Joseph gave lessons to 3 children 7, 6, and 6. He did really well with them and we think they will continue to enjoy it!
My first experience has been very knowledgable. I thought he was very professional by not starting our lesson until he has fully introduced himself and shared to me his experiences. He was organized and gave me homework to practice. I am looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you
when i contact this teacher he was very nice,understand
