ABOUT

PHILOSOPHY & APPROACH

Joe specializes in acoustic guitar; teaching children ages 5 and up; and fingerstyle guitar, including Travis Picking and the styles of Paul Simon, Doc Watson, Bob Dylan, Leo Kottke, and others.

All lessons are structured and there is always specific homework. Private lessons are the best way to get personal feedback and guidance.
