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!

I am a beginner at bass and Joshua is very patient. He makes learning fun and teaches in a way that is easy to follow. He is a very skilled musician and his passion for music shows. I highly recommend him.
