I am an adult learner who started to play the piano later in life. Joseph has been a wonderful instructor on my journey. He is very patient and easy to work with, yet he challenges me at the same time. I have made incredible progress this past year, and have become a much more confident piano player under his guidance. I very much recommend Joseph as an instructor.

I feel that I can learn a lot from Joseph. I am confident that he can help me with my singing voice to be where I want to be.
