Teaching since:

I'm a prize winning pianist and a music enthusiast. I started piano at age 5 and started winning competitions at age 10. I've won prizes at the local and national level. Ultimately though, I'm just passionate about all-things piano and would love to share my passion with you.

My background is in the Taubman technique, having spent 12 years working with one of Dorothy Taubman's personal students. However, whatever your technical background, I'm excited to help you find more freedom, power, and passion in your playing!

I've had a great experience with Josh. He's an incredibly skilled player and fantastic teacher. He's helped me improve my technique in a very short amount of time and has done a great job pushing me to challenge myself. Highly recommend him!
