Stephen's a great instructor both from a technical and personable perspective.

He's got a cornucopia of musical knowledge that's evident from how speaks to how he teaches. If you like any film score, chances are he knows how to play it.

Speaking as a beginner, I can say he's been very patient and knows a bunch of exercises and books to learn everything thing from theory to practical pieces to finger exercises.

He provides constructive guidance on what you're doing wrong, and I'm happy to see myself improve under his tutorage. (oh and if you're a sci-fi fan, you'll have a lot in common with him)

Steve is an excellent teacher! I always look forward to my classes. I am a student in high school, and he fully understands my need to balance my school work with piano, and he makes sure that I am able to comfortably commit to both aspects of my life. Steve makes sure that I stay on task and that I am progressing with my piano skills all while making the lessons fun and enjoyable.

If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography.

- The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs.

- Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial.

- Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations.

- Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs ...

I am a published photographer, a professional musician with an international acclaim and a published writer.

The reason all of these arts are synergistic together is because they are all about the inner vision and the capture of something magical. This magic is invisible to these who pass by in a rush.

Photography has been a love of mine since childhood as I took images with a fully manual camera in black and white without a range finder or auto focus lens. I still love the visceral experience.

My published photographs both on line as well as in galleries have been met with approval both in the media as well as by the established authorities. The director of Eastman House has picked one of my larger images of nature as one of his favorites. My specialty is street photography and the expressive moments of animals interacting with people. I do like portraiture which has been selected as an honorable win by photographic associations and printed in concert programs for ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

As a college graduate with two Associates degrees in Fine Arts & Associates in Digital Arts, and a Certificate of Completion in Digital Photography, I've learned a tremendous amount about photography and operating the camera. I'm eager to share this knowledge and these skills with my photography students.

You'll learn the basic functions of your camera, how to compose a great photograph, and if you need help with editing and managing your photos I can help you with that as well. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, I'm always happy to help!

He was patient and took the time to work with me on my current website issues. He went above and beyond to help. Easy to work with.
Keith Rivers
Josiah is an EXCELLENT teacher. I purchased WordPress early in 2021 in order to build a company website. After going through tons of YouTube and WordPress lessons for literally several months, I still had no idea what I was doing and my website was also going nowhere.

After choosing Josiah as my instructor, I had an immediate improvement of my website and also gained a wealth of knowledge about website design and building in a very short amount of time.

Josiah is very, very knowledgeable and patient. I never feel coerced. He listens to my questions and concerns and gives timely, reliable feedback. Most importantly, he genuinely wants his students to learn.

Additionally, I appreciate the fact that there are no assignments, no exams, I only have to learn what is important and what I want and need to know, and I can do all of this at my own pace with absolutely no obligations or constraints.

In addition to the website building, Josiah also unselfishly gives invaluable expert advice on other topics such as marketing and advertising. I am very grateful for his help.

I am happy he is my tutor. I don't think I could have chosen a better tutor. I strongly recommend him as the number one tutor for website building with WordPress.

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos.
