Great first lesson. Very knowledgeable and focuses on fundamentals and making sure you understand the actual inner workings of your voice, throat, and diaphragm.

It's been a great experience to have lessons online. Although it lasted 45 minutes, I have seen that these types of lessons are very useful and practical. Thank you for providing these lessons!

Michelle is so patient and kind. She gives me help with my accent and the way I pronounce the words so that I sound more like a native speaker. I love her. She is so much fun. I'd recommend her to anybody.

I have been teaching piano for over twenty years. I specialize in classical and pop. I love teaching babies and young children but I teach all ages. Piano is the hardest instrument. I try to make every lesson fun while still providing structure and a little bit of strictness. I use the Mark Nevin, Schaum, and Little Mozart series. I have tons of music to share for students that need to branch out and don't know what to play. Piano is my passion. I love sharing my love for this instrument with others.

About Kay

I have known Joshua for several years and have observed first hand the relationship he has with his students. He cares! Gracias para tu paciencia!
Maureen
Doctor Joshua has been instructing my 2 grandsons in piano at their home for many years. They are both excellent pianists, especially the 14 year old. Doctor Joshua lets them choose modern songs relevant to them and has written music for them to play. He also has recitals for his students and has had them play at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet pre-show. Their confidence has soared. I have been at my son’s home many times when my grandsons are taking their lessons and am very impressed at how Doctor Joshua is with both of them, he is very encouraging.

Joshua is attentive and enjoys teaching children. He is an experienced educator. His students get individualized lessons.

David was my first online clarinet coach and you cannot have a better teacher when you want to learn quickly and correctly. I took 13 lessons and it changed my life as a clarinetist. I highly recommend David.
Ellen D.
there are many clarinet players. Some are good, few can teach, and a minuscule amount are both. You have just found one of those few. This man has judged at international competitions, and has incredible patience and memory. He has studied under an understudy of the founder of the american school of thought for clarinetists, and always knows what you need to know, even if you are only in 8th grade.

This is the one.

David is flexible and geared towards the needs of the individual student. I am returning to the clarinet after more than a 40-year absence and he is able to accommodate my requirements. He is friendly and makes the student feel at ease. I look forward to more lessons with him.

"They say the best teachers never stop learning, and Bill is a perfect example of this. He is a geek for music! And his enthusiasm is infectious.

I played flute a hundred years ago all through my school years. Then I never touched it again. Until recently, when I thought it would be "fun" to pick it up again.
Poor Bill!

But Bill has shown great patience with me and is able to be encouraging while also noting some weaknesses. He's very engaging and upbeat and makes every lesson fun. He has also taken me to see professional flautists perform, and he has recommended some great books on music and flute.

I've learned so much from Bill and have enjoyed every minute of it!"

"Betsy has been my daughters coach for about a year now, and she is wonderful. My daughter has learned so much in the past year, and now she's interested in singing, thanks to Betsy. Betsy has a wonderful spirit, she knows how to communicate on their level, and she makes them feel as though they can do anything. I also like her because she encourages kids to follow their dreams, and to do the right things, and we all know that it takes a village to raise a child. I would highly recommend Betsy!"

How Much Time Should I Spend Practicing Guitar?
