I invest my love of music for my students. I love to watch my students grow.
Classical guitar is one of my specialties!
Music has always been a part of Josh's life. He started playing around with instruments at the age of three and singing at the age of seven. He instantly fell in love with music and grew a passion for it. At the age of five he attended his first musical concert, Garth Brooks. Josh loved every minute of it and he could see himself on a stage like Garth Brooks in the future. One day he heard someone playing guitar down in an alley and from that day forward he knew he wanted to play that instrument and it would become his specialty. In high school he played in the jazz band and was the lead guitarist. He also picked up the trumpet and played it in the jazz band. During his high school days music became his life and he created his own personal band. He wrote songs for his band and ...
I played my first guitar around the age of 13, discovered it was difficult to learn on my own, and decided to take lessons at a local music store. My teacher was excellent and had me playing songs very early on in the lessons. It was fun! I believe this is one of the most important ways to instill a love for music and maintain the motivation to continue playing.
It carried me through everything from getting up in front of my friends to play, a garage band, playing gigs and my degree in music!
In college, I learned to play classical guitar at an advanced level in addition to becoming a decent piano, marimba and drum set player. That takes a fair bit of motivation which, believe me, I wouldn't have had if I didn't truly enjoy it. My passion for music might have been dampened if teachers were not able to help me enjoy learning the often challenging methods for playing musical instruments.
Let me help you the way my teachers helped me. Complete beginners to more advanced ...
