“I took my first private music lessons with Joel Perry in Buffalo NY when I was 6. Joel used my guitar more as a vehicle for ear training, music reading, writing and comprehension, rather than the all-too-common guitarist thing of merely showing me how to play (parrot) things.

I am very grateful to Joel for those lessons, as they really set the tone for what would be a big part of my performing and teaching: that hearing and understanding the music is crucial to playing the music truly well and not just physically well.”
