Josh is a wonderful guitar teacher! In the first few lessons, I noticed considerable improvement in my guitar strumming technique. He makes song suggestions that are fun to play and target your weakest areas. Josh is knowledgeable about music theory and can break down concepts at a basic level for beginners. I’m very happy with the progress that I have made and hope to be shredding in no time.Oct 21, 2020Verified
Josh adapted the guitar lessons to my daughter’s skills and interest which kept her engaged. He is prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend himJun 29, 2020Verified
Josh has been an excellent teacher, taking me from never having picked up a guitar before to feeling like I’m actually playing. I was initially worried about learning an instrument through zoom, but he has made it easy and fun.Oct 21, 2020VerifiedJosh's Music Lessons's reply
Jack (John) is a FULLY REMOTE student. Thank you Jack!
He takes the time to make sure I understood what I was doing when I was playing. He also sends me videos and pictures of chords/notes we had worked in during the session so I can practice it myself! Good guitar player and great guy.Sep 17, 2020VerifiedJosh's Music Lessons's reply
Dominic is a FULLY REMOTE student and fun to teach. Thank you Dominic!
So ive had two lessons so far with Josh and I'm hooked! The material he provides me with to practice is great. It helps me keep myself up to speed and busy with what he's teaching me in our video sessions. Its also very easy to understand and fits my particular style of learning. Ive been wanting to get back into my music for awhile now and hes been very open and taking things slow with me to get back in the groove. Not to mention he can play! Highly recommend!Jul 9, 2020VerifiedJosh's Music Lessons's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing reflects my time, travel, expertise, and value. Listed price could go up or down depending on how far I need to travel to you or if you come to my apartment.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Musically: I like to find out your interests and assess your current knowledge of the instrument before diving into any one thing. Some students know a lot and can jump into advanced concepts straight away. Some are looking for a fun new hobby and just want to learn songs to stay interested without learning to read music or any theory. It's all cool by me! Logistically: Thumbtack largely leaves it up to us to proceed. So once we agree on price/location, etc, we just set up the first lesson and go from there!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a B.M. in jazz performance from William Paterson University. I regularly play in professional settings with bands or ensembles in a variety of genres. Mostly around NYC and NJ but I also have extensive touring experience all over the country. Ask me when my next local gig is!
