Joel is an amazing instructor. I've had music instructors that get frustrated and roll their eyes or scoff. Not once have I gotten that from Joel. He breaks it down to where it is completely understandable and he's willing to work at your speed. I especially like that he isn't hung up on boring songs, he pushes for what the student is interested in. Makes learning so much more fun. He doesn't get frustrated when I don't grasp a concept, he breaks it down to where I can understand and work through it. I thought trying to learn an instrument at 27 would make me feel dumb, but Joel doesn't create that kind of environment. Only good vibes. Can't say enough good things about Joel. - Ernest

I took guitar lessons to get ready for a wedding. It's never too late to learn an instrument especially when you have a great instructor such as Joel. Now I'm playing over 100 shows a year and cutting my teeth in this music city of Memphis TN with my band DEEP ROOTS. - Christopher

We are so glad that Joel is our 12 year old's Ukulele instructor. Joel is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled musician. He is especially gifted in putting students at ease and guiding them in pursuing their individual music styles. After only a short number of lesson with Joel, our shy girl is playing and singing her favorite popular songs !! - Laura

Joel is a very cool guy who is fun and easy to work with. He is very professional, knowledgeable and experienced so you get a lot out of the lesson. I look forward to my future lessons with Joel because he cares about my progress just as much, if not more, than I do and that's all you can ask for from a teacher. I was not just another student and he makes everyone feel that way. Super polite. - Nathan

Very flexible and is fun within his lessons, but influences his students to want to get better using songs the students like. - Elena

Just because you know how to do something does not mean that you can teach others how to do it, but this is not the case with Joel. He is a very knowledgeable, friendly and talented instructor who truly possesses the art of teaching. Joel works with you where you are and scaffolds your lessons in a way that you can't help but learn and feel accomplished every time that you meet with him. I highly recommend Joel as a guitar instructor! - Tracy

Joel did a great job of explaining why you need to do things certain ways which was helpful. He was very patient and encouraging. - Lisa

Joel is a very good instructor, he makes sure his students develop a good work ethic and lays a foundation that keeps a student's interest and desire to learn. - Albert

Amazing instructor! Made my 8 year old daughter very comfortable and created a good learning environment. - Molly

Joel is very supportive of beginners and makes learning enjoyable. Before our first lesson together, I had never picked up a guitar. Since then, I've learned a lot and it's never been boring. I highly recommend him to students of all levels. - Jacki
