Joseph Line Piano Studio
Dr. Joe is an amazing and gifted teacher and mentor who is nurturing, caring and patient with his students. He shares his immense love of piano, joy of performing and vast technical knowledge with his students. He tailors the lessons to the students’ abilities and learning styles while considering their personalities and individual tastes in music, all the while encouraging them to do their best. Dr. Joe provides a comprehensive piano study that includes music theory, ear training, playing expressively, and bringing out the “it factor” that allows each student to become the best musician they can be. Dr. Joe sets the standards very high but helps his students to achieve and surpass them. Dr. Joe has taken our daughter’s piano playing to the next level. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great experienced teacher and mentor.Aug 10, 2017

His professionalism is impeccable. Most importantly, Dr. Joe tailors his teaching approach to the individual child based on their interests and abilities.

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a package pricing for school year students. During the coming school year (September-May) students receive 31 lessons. (There is time off for end of the year breaks). To make it easy for parents, I pro-rate the cost of the 31 lessons over the 9 months of the school year, so that parents simply pay the same amount each month. The non-package prices are on a per-lesson basis, but these are a little more expensive. However, the first 2 lessons are at a 50% discount. Students who study with me over the internet will need an iphone, a laptop and a external web-cam positions on a boom over the keyboard. Since most people don't have an external webcam and boom, they can use the money they save from the discounted lessons to purchase these items. Neither the external webcam or the boom are expensive and in many places can be bought locally.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have an interview with the student and their parent(s) to determine their current abilities and their potential for successful study. This is a way to break the ice with the student, and if they have had prior study, to hear and watch them play. Because each student is unique, I custom design a course of study for each student that works to improve areas of weakness, and continue to promote their strengths.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started piano study when I was 4 years old, and fell in love with it immediately. I continued piano study thoughout my high school years and then went to Oberln College Conservatory of Music for bachelor and masters degrees in performance. During those years, I also became interested in conducting and eventually earned a conducting doctoral degree from the University of Michigan School of Music. During all those college years, I had the priviledge of studying with many world-class teachers and performers.
