Joe is a really fun and engaging instructor. As someone fairly new to music lessons in general, I appreciated that his enthusiasm and love of music are practically infectious. You can’t help but leave feeling excited to work on something after a lesson with him. I often struggle with anxiety around living up to certain expectations or finding the right ways to schedule in practice. He had a lot of real and practical advice for me and was never judgemental, he just met me where I was at. I definitely look forward to working with Joe in the future to reach my goals for various stringed instruments (uke, electric guitar, …). Deft Digits (Joe!) is a real local Seattle treasure.
