Joseph has studied cello for over six years. He currently takes lessons with William Gentzsch here at West Music Coralville. Joseph attends City High School and is a junior. He is involved in the City High Orchestra, City High musical pit, as well as stays involved in his community by being a church musician and scouting. He also plays the piano. His musical goals include making All-State Orchestra and to become a member of a college orchestra. He also wants to keep playing into adulthood.

Joseph says he loves playing music because it gives him a way to contribute to his school, church, and community. Joseph’s advice to other musicians is to “conquer a hard piece one line at a time”. Joseph’s hobbies include playing tennis, gaming, and Boy Scouts. His favorite musicians are The Piano Guys, John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Yo Yo Ma, and Jimmy Buffet.

Congratulations, Joseph!
