Do you love music?
Have you always wanted to learn how to play an instrument but never got around to it?
I want to let you know that it is never to late to pursue your passion.
Hi! My name is Joe. I am New York native who has been working as a professional musician and private guitar, bass, drum, piano, vocal teacher for approximately fourteen years. I am a graduate of the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, California and have attended New School University's Jazz Program. I have been blessed to have been able to travel throughout the United States performing at venues such as B.B. Kings, Starbucks, The Griffith Observatory in musical situations ranging from Punk Rock to Reggae and World Music, to Jazz and Blues. I have also been very blessed to have released three solo albums in which all have received international airplay and have been featured in publications worldwide! I have also been featured on MTV, The Village Voice, Ovation Television, and more. I have also written technical articles for Indie Music Magazine and Performer Magazine. If there is one thing I am passionate about it is music. Over my career I have performed in just about every musical situation possible and would love to share my professional knowledge with YOU!
Here is what I can help you do musically:
Learn to play your favorite songs
Sound great in a band
Learn to read music
Learn to improvise in a way that gives your freedom
Understand Music Theory
Learn to play your instrument in the style of your favorite artist (i.e. Learn how to play guitar in the style of Jimmy Page etc.)
Learn to compose your own music and write your own lyrics
Take lessons with a patient and FUN teacher that will help you accomplish your goals in the most direct manner
I firmly believe that music lessons should not only be informative, they should also be tons of FUN! I am very laid back and patient and I want you to know that I will work with your personal goals as a musician. For example, one of my students has always wanted to learn to play Brazilian Guitar and sing in Portuguese. We are taking her dream and turning it into a reality! If you practice daily with the criteria I set for you, you will be more than performance ready in 6 months! That's a personal guarantee! I also work with students with special needs such as ADHD and Autism.
What others are saying:
When choosing the right teacher, it's important to find someone who not only has excellent skills, but also a wide range of real world experience. With Joe DeVita, you get to study under an excellent professional guitarist with years of experience performing, composing, arranging, producing, and teaching. Most importantly, you will gain so much in depth insight from a truly dedicated student of music. He's a busy musician, but I encourage you to contact him about your guitar lessons.
