Our Teacher of the Month for September is Mr. Joe!
Joe has been teaching percussion at Matt's Music for 19 years. His favorite music genre is jazz. He started studying drums when he was 7 years old and he has been performing in the Buffalo area for over 60 years. When he was 15 years old, he formed a rock group called the Vibratos (soon to be inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame). "As time marched on, I have been blessed to work with many of Buffalo's talented musicians." - Mr. Joe
He has been teaching drums in WNY for over 60 years and started at the age of 21. Over the years he taught drums at (to name a few): Twin Village Music, Howard Evert Guitar Studio, Bob & Ray's Music, John Sedola's Music, U-Crest Music, Ed Bentley's Music, Sal Perrella's Music. "18 years ago I began teaching drums at Matt's Music, the very best music store in my humble opinion." - Mr. Joe
"In conclusion, I would like to say that music (both performing and teaching) is like breathing to me. It would be difficult to live without it!" - Mr. Joe
Congratulations, Mr. Joe!
