    Cello Joe has an absolute engaging style and flair in both his musicality and teaching that make it undeniable and fun to learn something new with him.

  • Carrianne Minick

    My 7 year old son started taking piano lessons with Joey this summer. He is very knowledgable, flexible, my son loves taking lessons with him and is learning a lot. The setup is great and we have been able to have virtual piano lessons during the pandemic. He also provides recordings of each lesson. Highly recommend!
