Joseph Mook is a private music teacher in the greater Cleveland area, teaching children, teens, and adults, piano, violin, trumpet, and other musical instruments, as well as to love and enjoy music. He additionally is the worship team leader at his church, Gateway Church Downtown, where he plays keyboard, directs the church band in rehearsals, and leads the congregation in worship on Sundays.

Joseph has played violin in several community orchestras, most recently with Symphony West Orchestra. He occasionally performs for gigs at weddings and accompanies other musicians on piano. Joseph also has been enjoying being the keyboardist for a local rock cover band, Hero II, which performs mostly rock from the 70s-today in smaller venues around town. He's picked up many different performance styles and music tech knowledge just from his short time with Hero II.

Additionally, Joseph has been asked by the Ohio Federation of Music Clubs (OFMC) to help adjudicate solo piano entries for their Junior Music Festivals since 2020, giving students honest feedback and insight in how they performed and how to grow as musicians.

He gained his Bachelor’s of Music Education from The Ohio State University in 2012, cum laude and with Honors, where he studied his principal instrument of piano under Dr. Steven Glaser primarily, but also with Drs. Rina Shimizu-Grow and Ryan Behan. During his free time, he enjoys basking in the cultural opportunities of University Circle in Cleveland, and especially hearing a pitch-perfect concert by the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra.
