Customer questions

Reviews

From customers:

Director M, 5 years ago

Joe was superbly professional throughout rehearsals and during the performances, and was very easy and pleasant to work with. He has excellent skills on the trumpet, has outstanding sight reading abilities and also has the chops to back it up. He provides an excellent service and I would highly recommend working with him.
