About Joseph E.

Availability: Please ask as I may not have everything on the availability calendar! PIANO / VOCAL / ORGAN / CONDUCTING - I am a music educator and performer that loves working with individuals from the young child to professionals. I taught public school for 12 years and then taught at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY for the last 14. My degrees are from Western Michigan University, Indiana University, and Ball State University. During my teaching career, I provided private lessons outside of the school and the college. When I left NY, I had 35 students of which 6 remained with me online. I love teaching and create an atmosphere where the students, regardless of age, feel successful in their endeavors. WHAT DO I TEACH? *Piano: All levels from beginning to professional *Organ: All levels from beginning to professional *Voice: Beginning and those working with music theater *Conducting: All levels WHERE DO I TEACH? *Piano: St Peter’s Episcopal & Online *Organ: St. Peter’s Episcopal & Online *Voice: St. Peter’s Episcopal & Online *Conducting: St. Peter's Episcopal & Online **Lessons only online until after the pandemic. NOTE: Parents are welcomed to attend the lessons! In fact, I encourage that!! WHAT IS MY STYLE OF TEACHING? Every student is different and what works for one may not work for another. It's important for me to know my students so I can better shape the lesson. I love questions, reflection, and humor. I'm very patient and understanding. We are all incredibly busy and accept that students may have weeks they are not able to practice a huge amount of time. WHAT DO I DO IN ADDITION TO GIVING LESSONS?

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.
