Teaching since:

I am an avid clarinetist, energetic performer and enthusiastic teacher. My dream career is to be a soloist like Martin Frost, to play in an orchestra, or compose and perform my music.
My passion for teaching is similar to my passion for performing, and I have experience teaching privately and in front of large groups, as a staff member for a high school marching band.

Josh is a great teacher, and I highly recommend him as an instructor for both adults and youth. I took clarinet lessons many years ago as an elementary school student. I have long had an interest in returning to the instrument, so I recently signed up for a series of lessons with Josh. Although it had been several decades since I first played the clarinet, Josh helped me get comfortable with the instrument again and provided terrific instruction on all aspects of the clarinet and clarinet performance.

Josh has been a fantastic Instructor for my middle school age son. He worked closely with him on several pieces that were required to audition at two summer music camps helping him to move from near last position the year before to the top of the class. His improvements were formally recognized with an award at the end of 7th grade and I think Josh was a large part of that improvement. We were saddened to hear that Josh would be leaving the Denver area but wish him the best of success in his new ventures. Josh is an excellent instructor and we would certainly work with him again in the future.

He was on time and the lesson went very well. My daughter was comfortable with him and is looking forward to the next lesson.
