Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

Absolutely loved the lesson and loved Darrell. He made me feel very comfortable and made the lesson fun. I learned a lot and really am looking forward to the next ones. Very excited to be embarking on this new venture in my life.

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of theory skills, which are a vital foundation to learning any instrument. I specialize in working at the student's pace and needs, typically use personal material that is skewed towards the student's level.

First time playing piano? Resuming after years (decades?) of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve!

Pop songs, jazz ballads, classical pieces, or movie/game themes, there must be something you are interested in playing and get better!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

The teacher was a few minutes late to my first lesson. I have a screenshot of me in the room waiting for her 2 min past the hour. The connection was poor. Today, 5 minutes after the hour I still hadn’t heard from the teacher and she told me we were using Zoom moving forward. I reached out to her for a link and 6 min after start time she said she had computer issues and was restarting. I booked a 1 hour session and 8 min in, I received the link. I let her know I needed to rebook bc of her tardiness because I had another obligation exactly on the hour. She understood and took responsibility and told me she’d cancel the lesson. I was very disappointed and cancelled the remainder of my lessons. Once she found out, she went back in today’s session and rebooked it and marked it as missed so she’d get paid. Extremely unhappy with this business. If you are looking to take lessons online, look elsewhere.

I have known Joshua for several years and have observed first hand the relationship he has with his students. He cares! Gracias para tu paciencia!
Maureen
Doctor Joshua has been instructing my 2 grandsons in piano at their home for many years. They are both excellent pianists, especially the 14 year old. Doctor Joshua lets them choose modern songs relevant to them and has written music for them to play. He also has recitals for his students and has had them play at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet pre-show. Their confidence has soared. I have been at my son’s home many times when my grandsons are taking their lessons and am very impressed at how Doctor Joshua is with both of them, he is very encouraging.
PEISAN
Joshua is attentive and enjoys teaching children. He is an experienced educator. His students get individualized lessons.

Bill has been an wonderful instructor so far, and each lesson we work on what I want to improve on or learn about. He's very knowledgeable, talented, and all round fun to work with. I'd recommend him to anyone interested in playing bass!"

"I never had a tutor before, so it was difficult for me to choose from the wide arrange of tutors there are. But I think Dan was the right choice. He's very professional and goes far and beyond to help his students understand how certain things are when playing the violin. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone looking for a violin tutor."

"Josh is a great instructor, he knows his stuff and is great with explaining concepts in layman's terms for someone like me who is just getting started with piano.

Along with being a great instructor, he is good company in general, which makes the lessons a lot more fun though they do tend to go by too quickly.

All in all, unless you're boring and without a sense of humor, I'd highly recommend choosing Josh as your instructor. You'll definitely get your money's worth."
