Joe is a great guitar teacher. He is very patient. I learned a lot from Joe. Will continue the lesions with Joe.
Justin
Joe is a great teacher and very accomplished guitar player. My skills have increased so dramatically over the last 18 months under his instruction that I'm kicking myself for not finding him sooner!

We generally focus on electric guitar - Blues, Rock and Jazz, but I know Joe teaches many acoustic-oriented clients as well. I highly recommend him.

I specialize in teaching music theory to people that want to play pop, rock, hip hop, country, and blues music. From Black Sabbath, to Taylor Swift, to Bone Thugs in Harmony, the same set of "rules" are being used. Understanding the classical "rules" allows you to recognize and adapt to the way rock and roll "breaks them," and why that is great.

About Scotty

I am an established performer having played in such bands as BigDamnCrazyWeight, Bring Back Dad and most recently, guitarist for Guadalupe Blue.

I've been learning bass from him and he is very knowledgeable in everything from the history of music, theory, techniques and much more.

overall good teacher

I've been taking lessons from Scotty for over a year and have learned a lot about theory, form, and style. Had taken lessons from other instructors and felt that I should had been further along after 1 year. One hour lesson time is perfect for me and I always leave wishing I had more time.

Great Teacher

Great teacher takes time to cover theory of music, and does hour lessons unlike most teachers in town who do 30min lessons. Have taken lessons from other teachers in the past, and all they do is teach you songs without explaining the reasoning behind it. Have learned more in the last few months then I’ve learn in years with other teachers.

Its very important that u learn your theory to become a great music performer , ear trained player, improvisation and song writer.
