I offer low rate guitar lessons for beginner, intermediate to advance;covering chords, scales, song structure, music theory, ear training, recording,technique, feel, as well as various styles(jazz, blues, rock, pop, ect). I cater to the students needs as well as incorporate the fundemantals of playing guitar. I believe every student has their own voice and I learn from my students as they learn from me. I hold a bachelor degree in jazz guitar. DON'T OWN A GUITAR, No problem I have guitars that you can borrow in the lesson(can't take home) to see if you this is something that you want to do. I have almost 20 years experince playing that I can share my knowledge with you. I am a very patient teacher that has worked with kids as young as 5 to adults as old as 80. It's never to late to learn!
Being an adult, I can be set in my ways on technique and at times have limited opportunity to practice on my own. When I would have a rough week, Josh demonstrated patience and worked with me to get back on track. He is very friendly and has a way of looping you back in when you are feeling frustrated or down. There were many times I wondered if I should continue with lessons but he would turn my struggles into something positive. Josh really kept me interested in playing guitar and understanding music in general. Not only is he familiar with the guitar and plays very well, he is able to take his knowledge and share in a way that is easily understandable. Today, I'm actually playing guitar for a local band in my area and I'm very appreciative of the time I had to learn from Josh.
Great experience! Provided a wounderful assortmant of tools and strategies to really help craft my playing!
I used to take lessons when Josh was at the music store, and some of the best teaching I've had, and it gave me motivation to keep playing throughout the years. He's a very good teacher and very flexible and I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to learn
I start with assesing where the student is at, whether it's their very first time playing the guitar to someone that might of been playing for a few years. I do this by asking them some questions on what type of music they like, what is their reason/motivation for wanting to learn the instrument to just diving right into playing.
I hold a Bachelors degree in Jazz guitar from The Ohio State University. I have also studied with many accomplished players; Tim Cummiskey, Josh Hill, Pete Cary, Matt Venus, Dan Bankhurst.
Yes I typically charge $20 for a 1/2 lesson and $30 for an hr
I started teaching when I was 20 years old when some friends of mine wanted to learn how to play, shortly after I went and taught at a music store, which I ended up teaching at for 5 years.
I have worked with all kinds from beginners to advance kids to adult. Ages ranging from 5-80
