About Joseph

I began piano lessons when I was 5 years old, and my love of the piano and teaching piano only increases with time. I have a Bachelor of Music degree, Magna Cum Laude, with concentration in piano and organ. I have taught piano lessons for about 15 years, mostly at the Columbus Conservatory of Piano. I moved back to Springfield, OH about a year ago, and teach students in Fairborn, OH.

I am also the music director at a Fairborn church. I have taught students of all ages and levels of experience. Piano is my passion and I hope it will become yours also.

A very knowledgeable and patient tutor. — Today, 13 June, was my fifth or sixth lesson. I’ve started from ground zero.
