Student Testimonials

Joe was my instructor for a previous sound design course, and so I already knew what a competent, experienced, and approachable teacher he is. When I heard he was going to start hosting modular synth classes online, I didn’t hesitate to sign up.

Bradley M. Seattle, WA

I really enjoyed Joe's way of going through the basics of entering the mighty world of modulars. From building to patching, Joe was totally available to answer any questions. I walked in with zero experience whatsoever and now I can patch my own bleeps and bloops!

Kamel O. Los Angeles, CA

Joe's course on Maths really helped break down a bunch of the uses of this multi-functional module. He thoroughly explained the individual sections and how they can work together, went through patch examples and explained in detail what was going on.
