“When I started Lessons I was a complete beginner, with a vague idea of where I wanted to go. In just a few weeks Joey had me playing chords, learning right and left hand patterns and reading through charts of my favorite songs.” - Matt F

""I have spent over a year and a half working with Joey via Skype. In our lessons, we've focused on re-working my songs and incorporating jazz voicings, as well as becoming a more solid performer. At shows I am constantly getting compliments on my "unusual harmonies and smooth chords." My weekly lessons with Joey have been one of the most consistent, motivational events while developing my career as a singer-songwriter. Recently, Joey has been coaching me, as I transition into becoming a full-time freelance musician. As a full-time musician himself, Joey is a valuable resource, from whom I can directly learn. Our meetings force me to account for each day and I feel like I am really making progress, whether it be finding teaching jobs, booking shows, or creating diverse opportunities for developing my business. I look forward to many future sessions together." -  Sophie (Jazz Skype Student)

"As an intermediate/advanced jazz player, it's been hard for me to find a good teacher that can articulate well what I need to do to reach the next level. I met Joey through a jazz facebook group that we both belong to, and I started taking lessons from him soon after. The lessons were run very efficiently and had a great balance of theory as well as actionable practice & performance tips. To this day, I have never felt more confident in my vocabulary and practice routine, all thanks to Joey!" -  Kenny N (Jazz Skype Student)

"My skype sessions with Joey started as jazz piano lessons; eventually we shifted to having weekly coaching sessions where we would focus on things that were important to being a musician that weren’t directly music. Physical health, professionalism, social media presence, budgeting, - these were all things that Joey helped me organize and put into perspective. Since starting these coaching sessions with him my health has improved, I learned tools to obtain steady reliable work , and I successfully planned my budget for the year. Excited for future sessions with him - these sessions have made a huge difference in my life both musically and otherwise." - Nick (Skype Student)

"I’ve been playing piano since I was a child, and over the last year and a half, I’ve begun teaching beginner piano to kids as well. It has been so rewarding and has brought me SO much joy! I wanted to give a shout out to Joey Lieber because he has been "instrumental" (haha) in my journey. Joey is a gifted musician, motivating teacher and inspiring mentor whom I feel grateful to have met through a Pianist Facebook group this past year. I began studying with him, in order to expand my own knowledge and level of playing, as well as to learn more about jazz piano in particular. Joey is patient, inspiring, and passionate about what he does. A big “thank you” to Joey for not only helping me in becoming a better musician, but helping me to be a better teacher for my own students as well. I truly look forward to our lessons each week. Never stop learning and growing!" -  Dana B (Skype Student)
