Joe is a very talented violin teacher. He knows how to teach difficult concepts and thinks carefully about how a student learns best. He is also easy going which makes lessons stress free and enjoyable. As an adult coming back to the violin after many years, wanting to play for enjoyment (not needing another thing to stress about) his teaching style is a great fit. I’m sure he would be great for a more ambitious student as well.

Details: 45 - 64 years old • 4+ yrs of formal training • Yes, the student can read music • What the teacher recommends • Classical • Rock • Blues • Jazz • Country • What the teacher recommends • Folk • Yes, the student has a violin • 30 minutes • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

I have the fortune of working with Joseph since November 2019. I'm in my 50's having not had lessons since I was 18. We have reworked by right hand, left hand, and how I hold the viola. Joseph's approachable, light-hearted manner coupled with his extensive experience, insight, and competence affords me the perfect coaching relationship that I seek. His approach is wholistic, emphasizing that in order to play well, the mechanics of playing should have the right feel and feel "right". He reassures me that even very accomplished players review fundamentals. Joseph's support and encouragement inspires confidence in myself such that I want to become a better player.

My 5 year old son has excelled with the gifts of Teacher Joes engaging violin instruction, patience and kindness. I sit in on the lessons and likewise pull a great deal of useful information from our time together, although my son remains the superior violinist. Joe is a great teacher for all ages.
