I have nearly 10 years of teaching experience with electric, acoustic, and bass guitar, and over 12 years of playing and studying in amateur and professional environments. I am currently on staff music as a music director at Westpointe Church in Grand Rapids and have worked or volunteered with church worship teams for over 10 years. I teach from my home in Grandville and am experienced in many different genres (folk, blues, jazz, rock, funk, etc.) and am able to teach basic music theory along with reading music charts and tabs. Whether you just want to learn basic chords and or would like to play in a band, I can help to get you there!

Guitars/bass guitars, amplifiers, chords, tuner.
Did an awesome job with my 10 y/o son. Kept the instruction at a pace where my son could understand and practice without frustration. Within 5 lessons was able to play a song and know every chord. We highly recommend Josh!
Josh gave me lessons for a period of time in 2010 and really helped me learn the basics of guitar. One of the best parts about lessons with Josh is his strong grasp of music. He not only knows how to play multiple instruments but he has a strong understanding of music theory. While learning to play guitar he helped teach me the basics of music which made a better musician.
He's smart and a fantastic teacher and I had a great time taking lessons with him.
