Last time I saw my instructor Joe, he had more hair... lol
You can tell he is a special guy. Yes he is a hard teacher, but man can he draw things out of you in a one-on-one that pretty much no one else can. As far as accordions go, I have to say that this man represents what the accordion should be in North America. I wish he was more visible, but he's getting up there in age and dreams of retirement are starting to dance around in his head.
