My experiences with Josh have been great. I have played guitar for many years, but my approach has always been lacking in relation to technique. Josh has helped me form a better mechanical understanding of my posture and movements. The adjustments he has helped me make have resulted in less stress on my fingers, wrist, and arms. He has always been thoroughly prepared for lessons. I would absolutely recommend Josh, especially for new musicians who want to learn their instrument in a fundamentally sound and detail oriented manner.
Paul W.
Been a student of Josh's for a few months now and feel very fortunate to have found him. His attention to detail, continuity between sessions, and obvious broad knowledge base are a few of the elements making this a very rewarding learning experience. I am learning to read music, understand music theory, and develop technique. I have very much looked forward to each lesson which Josh takes the time and effort to build upon with clear assignments and follow up. Josh is highly personable, professional and supportive. I highly recommend Josh.
Mark J.
Excellent, takes time to explain music so I can have a better understanding of the whole process.
I look forward to each class as I learn more.

Online Guitar Teacher

My name is Aaron Church,
I have been playing guitar for 12 years. In the past two years I have released 28 albums and 6 singles.
I specialize in blues and classic rock guitar. I teach students scales that incorporate world music techniques. I teach students a basic introduction to scales and show them how to build chords out of the scales. I teach improvisation specifically. I also teach students the blues and classic rock songs of their choice.
Each student must bring a binder with paper in it. I will hand write assignments for students to practice after each lesson. Before each lesson, the student must write a paragraph stating their goal for that lesson.
It is the discipline in organizing a schedule to practice assignments that will determine the success of a student.

About Aaron

My name is Aaron Church, I have been playing guitar for 12 years. I am an experienced musician, I teach students an easy quick way to learn guitar without requiring them to read music. I have played in many bands. I have taught Professional Musicians and Beginners how to play guitar.

"Athena is a great teacher. She really knows how to respond to individual needs and skill level of the student. In just a few lessons, she has already cleared a lot of obstacles for me, like addressing why was having pain in my hands and helping to correct that. Now I cannot wait every day to practice the guitar and I'm playing a song I've always wanted to play and it sounds recognizable after only three days. With more work on my part, I am sure that it will get better, and I know that Athena will keep giving me guidance that I can understand. And, she's fun!"

"Super Dave

Dave instructs my daughter and son in guitar. They're both convinced they are Dave's favorite student. I believe that in itself explains why he is incredibly effective with children. He has them feeling great about music and their progress. Certainly he is an excellent technical instructor. Yes he teaches proper hand position, good tone and so on and so forth. But his ability to connect with children makes him a one of a kind instructor."

"What a great teacher! He has several decades of experience in playing and teaching and it shows. He plays effortlessly and is very patient. He would be the ideal teacher for someone who is either new or already experienced with the guitar. Also, I feel like he can play most any song (and coming from a 70s/80s rock/metal fan, it's great). If you're on the fence about learning or continuing with lessons, give him a shot. You won't be disappointed!"
