Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!
Xiaoqi
Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

I am a full time musician and music teacher with over 20 years experience teaching guitar in one on one as well as group settings. I enjoy teaching all styles of music (especially jazz) and working with students of all ages.
I have founded and currently direct two Rock Band programs as well as teaching between 25-30 private students in my studio weekly. My students range in age between 6 and 73 years. I will create your lesson plan based on your goals and learning style. I can teach you standard notation, tablature or how to better use your ear. We can incorporate all three approaches. As your teacher I will guide you to having the most enjoyable experience you can learning guitar.
As well as guitar I teach beginner and intermediate ukulele and beginner bass. I also teach all levels of music theory. If a student is interested, a knowledge of theory is essential to understanding how songs are written as well as how to improvise.

My son (8) and daughter (6) have been taking piano lessons with Josh and they've both been having a lot of fun AND learning a lot. Josh keeps it light, but makes sure that his students are learning the theory needed to really progress. I would HIGHLY recommend Josh!!!
Holly D.
Josh has been the most kind and patient of any instructors I have ever had! He is knowledge-able, is always finding new ways to connect the right practice and knowledge with his students, and completely dedicated in making sure the student has fun! He is good with anyone of any age and music range and will always take the time to review. I sadly could not continue with him due to my schedule and inability to make the time to practice and attend lessons, but I would recommend him to any aspiring musician looking to enhance his/her musical abilities. You cannot get any better than Josh!
Jill L.
Josh is a Great teacher! More patience with my son than I have at times! He was very good at explaining the basic concepts behind the lessons. Josh is always on time and ready to get started. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone that is interested in getting their kids started in music.

"Kevin is an excellent guitar player! I’ve had a few jam sessions with him at his studio playing the keys as he played guitar and drums. He taught me some chords on the guitar and I picked them up so easily. I thought immediately, “This guys knows what he’s doing!” He plays Guitar, Bass, and Drums, and I definitely recommend learning from him."

"Ahmad is awesome. He's very patient and didactic. He easily picked up what was my playing level and what were my objectives. He then started with a plan adjusted to what I wanted to accomplish and in only 5 lessons I feel like I've learned a lot already. He wants you to have the foundations first, the building blocks from which you can improvise or create something new. Thanks a lot, Ahmad!"

He is one of the few teachers I've had to show me the music theory behind the stuff that we are playing which helped me better understand what I was actually doing. I highly recommend him."

"I have a concert gig coming up in the span of a week playing guitar with a big band orchestra doing jazz or band arrangements of various popular songs including a big band arrangement of Play That Funky Music from the 70's. In other words not the easiest stuff to be playing :)! First lesson with Brandi and she cleared up all the trouble spots, tricky rythms and chord changes easily in an hour. She explains musical complexities clearly, knows what she's doing and at the same time makes it easy to understand and execute. I had read about her background in classical and knew she had to be good but was genuinely impressed with how well she understood jazz and funk styles better than I do. ( And I'm 28, have been playing since age 12 and performing publicly in multiple settings since 13) Great personality, a lot of fun to work with, and incredibly knowledgeable! Absolutely recommend!"

"I took lessons with Steven for almost a year and I must say working with him has truly been a blast. I emailed Steven originally looking for help with my theory skills as well as both my acoustic and electric guitar playing and I have without a doubt gotten a hundred times better at all of the above. I have never been able to play a guitar solo before working with him and thought it would be months until I could even begin to think about that but right away he showed me the ropes and got me going. I was totally discouraged about my skill level because I’ve been wanting to major in music in college but started playing late in the game. However, Steven was nothing but encouraging through not only teaching me crucial musical skills but also sharing invaluable stories from when he was in music school leaving me nothing but inspired. Its often intimidating to meet a private instructor for the first time (I’ve met plenty of bad ones) but Steven is one of the nicest guys in the world and I can’t wait to continue lessons with him again once I have the time. Be sure to check out the Rivera Sunnarborg Duo live they are absolutely breathtaking! Have fun taking lessons and get ready for some nerdy music theory jokes!"
