My son enjoyed ukulele lessons from Joe for several months – he learned so much from him: reading notes, parts of the instrument, chords, various strumming techniques and playing the songs that my son wanted to learn (“Stitches” and “Safe and Sound”). My son has dyslexia, which never came up as an issue, and in fact Joe worked with the situation beautifully as he works with every child as an individual. Joe brings more to the table than your average music teacher – he organizes a concert for students in a local restaurant, allowing them the opportunity to perform for friends and family. Such a fun experience! I recommend Joe wholeheartedly.
