Hi! I am a recent master's grad teaching violin in the D.C. metropolitan area. I have played violin for approximately 20 years and was a member of the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra from 8th-12th grade, eventually touring Vienna and Prague with the orchestra in Summer 2009.

I have taught private lessons since 2013, including children of all ages and adults. I look forward to tutoring you or your child and helping them realize their full potential! Josh

My granddaughter is learning a lot from this fellow and is enthralled with him, She is progressing with her violin quickly and plays her instrument very much. He has her progressing beyond where I thought she would be, having only been playing for a few months and I believe she will keep at it with him as her instructor!
