Josh is very patient with me being an older student, and has a very friendly personality. I would recommend him to any student!

Josh was a kind, patient teacher and mentor. I am a string player completely new to the world of woodwinds and Josh helped me navigate all the basic challenges involved with learning an instrument. Two thumbs up!!
