My main goal is to unlock your creativity! As an active musician, producer, and teacher I love to help others learn how to read, write, and play the music they love and envision. My teaching philosophy is that every aspect of music is connected and therefore to really get it, you have to learn it all! I take a wide ground up approach inching away at rhythm, melody, theory, technique, and feel altogether, advancing all musical skills equally over time. Can't wait to meet you!
About Joshua A.

I am a Nashville-based musician and record producer, originally from just north of Chicago in Gurnee, IL. I began my musical journey at the early age of three. My parents recount me banging on pots and pans before I could speak, so they placed me in piano lessons at three years old and drum lessons simultaneously at four. Throughout High School, while remaining in classical piano lessons, I played percussion in the top Symphonic Band, piano and drum set in Jazz Ensemble, led my drum line as the center snare, and even helped start my school’s first ever indoor marching percussion program. At the age of 16, I also was introduced to music production software which solidified my love for the creative process of music. With my mixed musical upbringing, I developed an understanding and feel for almost any genre or style, and love to blend them all! This led me to Belmont University where I spent two years studying the music business, playing shows, creating music, and honing in on my skills. In 2017, I dove into my production and teaching career. Through organic growth I accumulated a few in-home private lesson students, as well as a small client base for production work. I now function as a contract producer, and private lessons instructor. I have personal students and I also teach out of Nashville's excellent Roots Academy. I am also the Music Director at my church, The Chapel at Antioch. My greatest desire as a teacher is for students to develop a strong passion and joy for music as a launching pad for all of their musical endeavors.

Josh is AMAZING! He’s helped my son learn to play the drums - he had never touched any music instrument before he started lessons. He’s also teaching him to read music which is important to me. Lastly, Josh really helped to boost his confidence - he was 5 months in and my shy kid signed up for a drum showcase and DID AMAZING!!! Josh is such an awesome young man, and a good role model for kids as well. He was doing in person lessons, but when Josh moved we switched to virtual because he’s so great! HIGHLY recommend working with Josh. He’s the best.

Joshua has the gift of teaching. My son is not only enjoying his lessons, but he is excited to show me what he has learned and even practices every now and then without needing a reminder. I would highly recommend him. He relates well with his students and makes learning the piano fun.
