Theory, ear training and fun music!
About Joseph L.

I enjoy teaching all types of music. My greatest passion is the legendary jazz rhythm guitar style of Freddie Green with the Count Basie Orchestra. That disciplined and understated beauty combines harmonic theory, rhythmic strength and dynamic sensitivity. Guitar in any ensemble or solo brings out intelligence, focus and beauty. Let me help you achieve these in our study together. I teach special education in schools. So, I enjoy finding the best learning styles for music students. It's fun achieving a great learning approach. Seeing students smile makes my day! Children are a joy to instruct, but music rewards students of all ages. Please send me a question by TakeLessons.com e-mail or call them at ‭877-231-8505 to start!

Already learned some techniques to improve hand placement. Mr. Joseph was very helpful and easy to understand.
