Joel’s studio is comprised primarily of beginning-intermediate pianists, but he is comfortable teaching any ability level of pianist.
For beginning students, Joel usually uses the Piano Adventures curriculum, but is happy to follow the student if his/her needs or interests suggest a different path. Piano Adventures teaches musical literacy and piano skills wonderfully. It is a compromise between abstract concepts and rote learning, between learning a hand position and learning notes.
For intermediate and advanced students, Joel unlocks the wide variety of classical literature available for such students, encouraging them to explore all eras of classical music, as well as contemporary selections.
