I would recommend Mr. Joseph Beels as a musician, pianist or teacher. I have known him for several months and my impression of him is that of a very serious musician and pianist. He is a very dedicated musician and teacher and cares about the music he performs and teaches. It is a pleasure for me to know him and to recommend such a serious professional. He will produce quality work in any capacity.
-Ana Maria Trenchi Bottazzi, Ph.D., DMA, The Juilliard School
Joseph Beels is a sincere and aspiring young musician who has a particular affinity for the clarity and climate of Baroque and Classical keyboard works. He is dedicated in the pursuit of his dreams. The cleanliness of line that he projects through his playing is also something of a defining feature in his visual art creations, all of which highlight a strength of purpose and well placed professionalism.
-Phillip Wilcher, Composer/Pianist
Joseph Beels is a pianist who has many possibilities, he likes to learn and is a conscientious musician. His musicality and talent are obvious. This pianist has the humility to be a very good interpreter. I wish him a lot of joy and success with the piano and more generally in music.
