About Joseph

I am originally from Chicago, but I have lived in the Atlanta area for the past 30 years. I am a proud father of 3 adult children and I have 3 grandchildren. I have a life-long passion for aerobic fitness (especially swimming) guitar playing and chess. I have always been a teacher. My first tax-paying job began at 16. I was teaching and coaching swimming for the Chicago Park District.

After college I went to work as youth pastor and assistant pastor at the Friendship Assembly of God Church on the north side of Chicago. While there I instituted and ran a free tutoring program for the neighborhood children. We met on Saturday mornings and the age range was from 6 to 13 years. I worked there for three years.

I have always had two parallel professions; my day job was as substitute teacher in both the Chicago public schools and Atlanta public schools and my night job as guitarist/musician. Fifteen years ago these two professions converged. I opened my own private teaching studio where I began tutoring or teaching, if you will, guitar and bass lessons. My student roster is mostly kids from about 10 to 18 but I also have always had quite a few adults who often are already guitarists but are simply trying to get to the next level.

I never pursued actual teaching certification because I really wanted to be a full-time professional musician which I eventually achieved. Substitute teaching however often required me to teach everything from kindergarten to high school algebra and everything in between. Not to say that I'm expert in everything, I'm not. After many years of learning and teaching I am however expert at the process of learning.
