Joe was recently in the studio in El Cerrito, working on Krishna Feeney's excellent CD of original songs.  The other players were Chuck Ervin on bass and Sharon Gilchrist on mandolin. It was a pleasure to play Krishna's great songs with excellent players! The album is available now:


Ricky Sunderland

Joe's longtime guitar student Ricky Sunderland has performed regularly, with great success!

Henry Tantum

Joe's former student Henry Tantum performed for the whole school at his graduation from Redwood High School.  Congratulations, Henry!


Get your family band together. Contact Joe to arrange group lessons.


The Acoustic Jam Class is the perfect place to work on your musical skills. If you can sing and play, play lead, or just strum along, this is the class for you. It is less structured than Joe's other classes, and the choice of songs is up to the students. Please see the Group Classes page for detailed info. Join the fun!

Joe's advanced ukulele students gave their first performance at The Redwoods in Mill Valley in February 2016. Barbara, Eric, Paige, Rob, and Mairead with singer Pam Tibbits, performed under the name "The Ukes of Hazzard". A good time was had by all!
