For the past few years, Joe was paramount in helping me realize my love and potential for music, particularly with the guitar. When I first came to Joe for lessons he was incredibly flexible with scheduling and was very attentive to exploring areas of the guitar that I not only wanted to learn, but that he knew would challenge me to improve my skills and further my understanding of the underlying roots of the music. Joe was always focused during the lessons, making sure I was really picking up on what was being taught for the entirety of the sessions. Often, Joe would follow up with me during the week between sessions to see how my progress was going and to answer any questions I had which proved to be extremely helpful. Overall, my experience with Joe was excellent, his attention to detail regarding the music as well as his great focus on making sure I was truly understanding the lessons made the learning process not only exciting and fun but enormously fruitful. Joe was fun, passionate and worked extremely hard in his role as my guitar teacher and I truly appreciate all the time he spent to help me improve my skills and become closer to my passion for music.
