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!

Joseph Lynn is an excellent guitarist, and exceptional guitar tutor. He takes time to understand the student, and tailor the learning process that suits the student. My daughter had a wonderful experience learning from him. I highly recommend Joseph Lynn.

Joseph was able to instruct me on jazz music which was new to me. He was very patient in getting me to play chords that I never did before and to do progressions up and down the neck of the guitar. He made it seem easy after a while, even though it was tough to grasp at first. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

Joe is an excellent teacher

I have been studying for more than a year. Joe is extremely versatile and is able to teach any style of music. He emphasizes spending short periods of time each practice session doing exercises that strengthen your fingers by playing chords up and down the fretboard, but does'nt go overboard with repetitive drills. He has genuine love of music and is great iat intertwining theory with actual songs. I have enjoyed my lessons and highly recommend him for students begining to play as well as advanced students.
