I bought these lessons for my 14-year-old son to improve his cello playing. Josh was personable and easy to follow. He was flexible with our schedule. Would definitely recommend him and I will likely continue lessons over the summer.

Joshua is making ukulele lessons very enjoyable for my 12 year old daughter. She took piano somewhere else before this and is really enjoying this new experience. She just keeps saying how fun it is!
