About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Unlike most traditional teachers, I focus primarily on the unique goals of the student to develop a game plan to help them reach their musical aspirations faster than they thought possible. By introducing the student to new styles while simultaneously catering to their interests, students have more fun and learn more quickly.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love seeing the progress the students make and helping them to discover a new talent and passion. There is no greater joy then when a student who was struggling has an Aha! moment and rediscovers the joy in music.

    Josh has a very warm, inviting and professional personality. I was scared to death of taking singing lessons but I decided to face my fears and just do it. Josh made the environment very comfortable. He was very patient, not judgmental, very informative. He helped me establish goals with my lessons and I could not be more excited to see where this journey takes me. Thanks again Josh!

    I recently started taking guitar lessons with Josh and it's been a great experience. He is flexible with both your learning style and schedule. In the past I have had difficulty finding a good teacher, but I would recommend Josh to anyone, and he's inspired me to start piano as well. Thanks!

    He allowed me to use his guitar the first lesson. Recommended the instrument I shouldpurchase as a 1st timer and forewarned me of what they would try.to sell additionally.I was very pleased w the lesson and setting. He is patient and answers questions well. He also lets you know what ti focus on at the present. Good instructor for kids and adults.

    Josh has been teaching guitar and piano to my kids for two years. He is enthusiastic, creative, and hard working. The kids enjoy his lessons. They think that he is "cool" and they have learned a lot.
  • Rachel G. Apr 22, 2014
    Josh is lovely to work with! He is really easy to get along with, and he is not at all patronising, as I have found some music teachers to be! Overall, it's been a good experience.
  • Amrutha S. Apr 22, 2014
    Josh is an incredible teacher. I took his Learn Guitar DVD program, and I was startled by how much I was able to learn in such a short period of time. The biggest strength of the program was that instead of starting all the way from the basics — with notes, frets, reading music, etc. — it jumped straight into getting me to play actual songs.

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When looking to hire a guitar or voice teacher, it is essential to talk to the instructor on the phone to learn more about them and see if their teaching style works with your individual needs. If you hire a teacher whose style doesn't work for you, then you will struggle to find motivation to practice and will struggle to learn. In addition to finding a qualified teacher, you need a certain amount of "chemistry" to make the learning process more natural.
