About JOSEPH H.

JOSEPH teaches: Ages 5 to 60
Teaching since: August 2005
Last sign in: More than two months

Overview

With my Bachelor's/Master's Degree and 14 years of experience in education, it will be an honor for me to add more to students.

*** 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.

In-Home:
If you are taking any kind of music lesson,
we recommend a tuned piano or digital keyboard.
If you like, I can suggest several different models of keyboard that I have researched and of which I approve.

*** 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.

Great experience!!! Joseph is very knowledgeable. He took the time to assess my skill level and customized a teaching plan that challenged me and also helped me improve. His knowledge of musical theory and the process in which he teaches it keeps me engaged and wanting more.

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
