About Joe

Experienced guitarist and music educator based in London
Joe Armer's profile picture
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I have a wealth of performance experience in classical, jazz, soul, pop/rock, and fusion having played in a wide variety of contexts ranging from solo recitals to theatre pit bands to jazz clubs. I currently run a weekly jazz jam in East London amongst other residencies. As a composer I have had pieces performed at Sanctum and the Edinburgh Fringe. I have experience in arranging for and conducting student ensembles as well as professional groups. In June 2020 I released my debut EP ‘Hommages’. As an educator I specialise in classical guitar tuition, jazz harmony, applied theory, and Brazilian music alongside bass and music theory. I adapt my teaching style depending on the context, planning the lessons to meet the desired learner outcomes. I take a holistic approach to music education, aiming to help the student to fully realise their potential on their instrument as well as to encourage creativity and a lifelong passion for music.
