"For me, Joe transcends guitar teacher and has become my guitar friend. You can learn so many things on-line these days but in my experience guitar isn't one of them. Maybe that is what makes learning guitar so special. You can't learn it well through youtube like say, a piece of software. Guitar takes a guide to develop your own personal touch with the instrument, a true mentor like Joe. He has helped me navigate the various learning sources available while adding a personal touch to keep things fun and exciting. I've seen him play professional gigs, teach advanced students and yet take the time to create a personalized song binder for me, a beginner. He can listen to a song he's never heard before, write it out and start teaching it to you in less than 10 minutes! Talk about value. If you are serious about learning guitar and making music a bigger part of your life; go to Joe."
