Over the past twenty years, Joel has worked with students of all abilities, ranging in age from five to seventy-five. He has guest lectured at universities, taught guitar and music theory privately in Connecticut, New York, and Boston, and is currently taking on new students at his home studio in Brighton, MA.
Focused mainly in the classical, rock (in all of its guises), country, and folk arenas, Joel is committed to tailoring lessons to each student’s particular learning style and interests. Joel’s love of music theory and lifelong commitment to rudiments is tempered by his deep interest in “just plain messing around on the guitar.”
A lifelong student himself (currently studying piano privately), Joel is very interested in practice hygiene and how to get the most out of time spent working on concepts outside of lessons.
