Joe Pariseau

Joe Pariseau

Music Director

Joe Pariseau is the proud husband and father to his wife Amy, and their two daughters: Adeline, (6) and Anelise (2).

Joe grew up in the church with his grandmother on the organ/piano and his grandfather singing in the choir. His mother also played piano.

At a young age Joe approached the piano one day and started playing a melody. His mother popped her head around the corner wondering where the music came from. She saw him sitting there and came over and started to teach him how to read music. Pretty soon Joe was learning classical music and anything else he could get his hands on.

Fast forward to a new house and location. Joe was wandering around the house one day and looked in an empty closet. The previous owner had left a classical guitar there. He took this as a sign from God and quickly changed the strings and started to become very interested in this new instrument.

Fast forward into young adulthood. Joe always knew that music was what he was meant to do. From the moment he sat down at that piano, it was like an overwhelming sense of purpose was felt instantly. If you ask him, he’ll say “Music chose me, and I think God had His hands in it as well.” Joe had always liked to sing as well but wanted to know more about how the pros do it. So, he started seeking out professionals in the field of vocal science. He found what he was looking for, Estill Voice International. Joe is now the proud holder of the Certificate of Figure Proficiency through Estill Voice.

“I’m very thankful to Cornerstone Baptist and my church family for allowing me and trusting me to lead worship. God bless you all!”
