Music has been a part of my life for 40 years, whether as a student, a teacher, a performer, or an enthusiastic listener.  You will see from the reviews I have received from students and parents, that I love teaching the piano.  I want to share my love of music and encourage people to incorporate music in their daily lives.

    Joseph is an excellent piano teacher that makes learning piano enjoyable. He is has been teaching our 10 and 14-year old daughters for almost 2 years now. There is noticeable improvement in their playing skills. I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for piano lessons at home.

    Joseph will meet you or your child where he or she is and will approach playing the piano through their eyes. He teaches what his students want to learn and capitalizes on their interest, so practicing is not a chore. He is a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and will follow that curriculum for studens who want to go that route, preparing for a more classical music education or he will focus on whatever the interest. He will provide options for learning, where most other teachers teach everyone the same way. Most importantly, he listens to his students. He is the best teacher we have found for piano. You cannot go wrong with such a versatile teacher. He will lead you where you want to go, whatever your path or interest.

I am a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.  I studied piano performance.  I have been teaching for over twenty years.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$25 per half hour.  I give a $5 discount for each additional student in the household and/or new students referred to me.  Maximum of 3 $5 discounts.


How did you get started teaching?

When I was 16, my sister's piano teacher was hiring for an assistant teacher for the studio.  I applied and was hired.  Eventually, I was responsible for the studio during the summer months.  I then left when I turned 18 to go to college, but still continued to teach piano privately.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children, teens, and adults.  I teach classical and popular music.  I have taught 5 year olds to 74 year olds.
