Joey is an 18 year old guitarist who began taking lessons on his 8th birthday. However, his love for music started much earlier. His very first guitar performance was at the age of 9 in front of over 200 people at his school concert. He alone performed AC/DC’s Back in Black. The response from the crowd confirmed that this was a path he wanted for his future. At the age of 13, Joey began taking piano lessons and excelled very quickly. He has been active in his school jazz band since the 5th grade playing guitar and has been known to step in and lend support on bass whenever needed. His efforts were recognized with awards he received. Joey also participated in a school play by providing and creating the background music through its entirety.

In his spare time, Joey started volunteering his piano and guitar talents at a local senior center where his great grandmother stayed for a short time. Music is something that connects people of all ages and this  casual setting is very rewarding to both Joey and the Seniors. It has been such an uplifting experience that more senior centers are reaching out to Joey to play.   

Aside from his busy music schedule, Joey is currently a Sophomore at the University of Rhode Island where he double-majoring in Music therapy and JazzPerformance. His plan for the future is to both perform and produce in music. He has an excellent ear and knows many elements of music both theoretically and technically.
