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.

My 12 year old daughter has been taking violin lessons with Joseph for two years and we are delighted with everything about her experience. Joseph is a splendid musician himself, setting an example of what excellence looks and sounds like. And, he is truly a wonderful teacher, having all the qualities students and parents would wish... technical expertise, clear explanations and teaching methods, great organization and communication, and also patience, kindness, good humor, all with just the right blend of understanding along with expectations for achievement. My daughters playing skill and enjoyment of the instrument has improved dramatically while learning from Joseph.

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.

We highly recommend Joe as a violin teacher. Joe was so encouraging and patient and also inspiring as a violin teacher to our son. He was our son's violin teacher for the first three years until we sadly moved to another state. My son grew beautifully under Joe's teaching and has continued as a violinist (he is now at quite a high level of performance). We attribute this to Joe's inspiration and first wonderful three years at the violin.

Thank you Sara! I'm very proud of what he's accomplished!
