Introduction: Hi! I have been teaching the cello for over 15 years and I am currently on faculty at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida. I have studied with great cello teachers during my bachelors, masters and post masters degrees. My principal teachers include Orlando Cole, Melissa Kraut, Han Jorgen Jensen, David Ying, David Cole, David Requiro, John Kadz and Desmond Hoebig. I have been in masterclasses with Mischa Maisky, Matt Haimovitz, Raphael Wallfisch, Johannes Moser, Lynn Harrell, and Richard Aaron. From my experience as a student, I have gained valuable knowledge on how to teach. A lot of my students have trained for pre-college and college auditions and have had great success. I have taken Suzuki Teacher Certification courses for cello pedagogy and have been a member of Sudbury, Thunder Bay and Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestras in Ontario, Canada. If you have any questions, I would be happy to help!

Joe Goering is the best cello teacher I have ever had, and I have had a few well-known very good teachers. Just take a lesson from him - you will see. He is keenly observant, curious about your playing, exacting but encouraging, musical beyond belief, a master technician and organizer of musical phrasing, flexible about what you want to learn. I am pretty advanced but he also loves working with beginners. If you don't have time to practice (life as an adult student), he understands but he makes you want to practice just the same. Just take a lesson, you won't be sorry.

I am an adult student and have been working with Joe for few months now. We have been working through the Suzuki method with additional position book. He is a talented musician and wonderful teacher. He is very organized, tailors lessons to my needs, knows what I am struggling with a particular exercises. I consider myself very lucky to be working with Joe. I can't recommend him enough!

Mr. Goering has the rare ability to effectively isolate issues in technique, and communicate strategies to handle phrasing and the artistry of his medium. As a trained violinist with an interest in learning to play the cello I witnessed first hand how well Mr. Goering was able to demonstrate what was wrong and what was right in my fledgling form particularly in my bow hold and pull, and taught me musically how to think differently about approaching a phrase or a piece as a whole. From early pedagogical tools to the Bach Cello suites and beyond, Mr. Goering clearly has an advanced pedagogical understanding and knows when to suggest how to push a student further and when to let them digest new concepts. Recommended for ALL levels of student from beginner to coaching.

Joe is an expert instructor. His focus on technique is imperative to preventing and retraining bad habits. He focuses on quality body position, left hand position and bow technique. He is great at providing positive feedback while being able to isolate and address problematic issues as needed.

He’d very professional, and I feel I’ve genuinely improved since I’ve started classes.
