    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.

    Dr. Joe is an outstanding piano teacher who works well with children. He is very patient, warm and firm if needed. His passion for music and teaching is apparent through his lessons. His professionalism is impeccable. Most importantly, Dr. Joe tailors his teaching approach to the individual child based on their interests and abilities. Both my kids have been studying with him for several years and have made tremendous progress.

About this pro

One dollar for piano lessons? Well, no: Thumbtack doesn’t have room for me to list all my prices. But the limited time special pricing I’m offering is just about as crazy as a dollar a lesson. Intrigued? Read on! My name is Dr. Joseph Line, but my students all call me Dr. Joe. I’m a master professional piano teacher with over 45-year experience. Over the years, I’ve taught students of all ages solid piano playing techniques, music theory and how to read music. But what I really love to do is help students develop their own unique inner musician. You see, the joy of piano playing goes beyond just playing notes. For me, and I hope for you, it's all about making music. If that’s interesting to you or your child, then I’m interested in working with you. There are three ways students can study with me: • At my studio in Pompano Beach, FL • At your home in the South Florida region • Through the internet with live and fully-interactive lessons anywhere in the USA SO WHAT ABOUT THAT CRAZY PRICING? If you Google me, you’ll find my website where you can read all about me, my approach to teaching, recommendations from parents of my students, and the tuition prices I normally charge. Notice that I said NORMALLY. Currently I have 2 spaces left in my piano studio for new students. If you’re interested in one of them, I’d like to make you this special offer—valid ONLY for new students in my studio and ONLY until those two spaces are filled: After you’ve checked out my experience and recommendations, if you think we would be a good fit, I’d like you to suggest what tuition you think would be a fair and realistic for you. Then, let’s talk. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But I’m serious: If you’re serious about finding outstanding piano instruction for your child, I’ll do my best to work within your budget. Feel free to contact me with your questions. I look forward to hearing from you. Dr. Joe Teaching piano has been a part of my life since my college days. It is a way of giving back to my students the wisdom I have gained over the years from some of the world's best teachers. I love helping children get started on the right track, sharing my enthusiasm with them for music and the arts, and seeing the look of amazement on their faces as they find themselves playing pieces at the piano that even they didn't think were possible for them.

    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.
