"Joel Brandon came to Music and Arts with an eagerness to teach piano and voice. He built two full days of teaching with us and had a great record of student satisfaction! He treats teaching with a structured, yet fun approach...he crafts each lesson individually for the student. For this reason, he is able to take on a larger student population in regard to age, background, culture, and skill level."
- Hannah Best, Manager, Music and Arts Music Stores
"Joel did a great job with our daughter who took lessons with him for about 3 years starting at age 6. She learned a lot and had fun doing it. I was impressed with how much progress she would make week to week."
