“Joe is such an inspirational teacher! He is very nice and easy going. My daughter has been taking bass lessons with Joe for 6 months now, Domenica is very happy with him. I had a few lessons with Joe myself, and he made me feel that you are never too old to learn to play the guitar!”

“My son has been taking bass lessons from Joe for only 6 months, and the strides he has made are noticeable. Joe was able to take my son’s playing to the next level. You are awesome and Harley loves having you for a teacher!”
– Jennifer H., A Very Satisfied Mom
“I picked up the bass in my thirties with no musical experience whatsoever. I answered an ad for lessons and inside of a year I’ve been playing gigs. Joe has been patient and understanding of my limited practice time and still somehow has made me more than a proficient player. Studying with a real musician has made a ton of difference in my understanding of the bass and how to play it.”

“Joe is a great teacher, his ability to pass along knowledge and do it to the level of the learner is extraordinary. I have had many teachers & instructors across a variety of disciplines both artistic and professional in my life. Joe is one of a handful of teachers I truly respect and feel sets an example of what I can achieve and make me believe I can. I love being a bear cub!”

“I love what my girls got from Bearclaw’s Academy of Music. We are on the road, but my girls needed some piano practice time in order to prepare for the UK Royal Academy of Music Examination next month. We are so happy to find Joe and Bearclaw. Joe was helpful and accommodated our needs by working around his schedule. I am sure that Bearclaw will become a memorable experience with my girls in their musical journey. All our best to Joe and Bearclaw’ Academy of Music.”

“Follow up to last post: Our daughter was admitted to Frost School of Music at U Miami, largely thanks to Joe’s help preparing the audition tapes and subsequently practicing for the live audition – not only for the performance but for also the theory test. Joe has been her biggest cheerleader. He stepped in when she needed him and saw her all the way through. Our family is extremely grateful for his talent as a teacher and his kindness as a human being.”
