About this pro

I will teach in a different way, applying principles of music in ways that are specific to what a student wants to do with music. Every student has different goals and will get a specific approach in their lessons.

I also offer lessons in the student's home so that the students and/or parents do not have to take their own time to drive to a studio. It is a great convenience that most hardworking people are willing to pay a little extra for.

I am passionate about music as my calling. I enjoy helping students to work toward excellence and individuality, so that they may stand out among the mediocre and the copycats.

  • Jeff Davis

    Josh is an amazing teacher! Our 8 year old is excited for his guitar lesson every week! Josh is very good at communicating the lesson on our 8 year olds level so that the lesson sinks in. We’ve only had a handful of lessons so far but we are very happy with the overall experience thus far!

  • Walker Davis

    Great teacher, he is always very detailed in his explanations.

  • Liz MacDonnell

    He is great with the kids, they enjoy his teaching style. My oldest said he's reignited a desire to really learn the guitar again.. For me, we can communicate our goals and he'sbvery much willing to help us get there.

  • Amanda Raines

    Patient and calm
