Good news for Emmanuel College students who want to learn to play guitar! Junior Joel Blank is giving cheap lessons in Saint Joe’s Basement.
I asked Joel why he decided to start giving lessons, and he said he would like to eventually become a professor and the teaching experience will be beneficial. Joel is a Music Cognition major and music has always been a main interest for him.
Music a great outlet and it’s easy to get discouraged. I want the experience to be positive.”
Joel’s love for guitar began when he started lessons in the eighth grade. In high school, he continued the lessons with a new teacher that Joel says “focused more on technique and was more patient than the last.” This is what Joel hopes to bring to his own lessons.
You can catch Joel playing at Emmanuel College’s Performing Arts Festival on March 23rd. Joel is also a member of the Colleges Of the Fenway Jazz Band.
