About Josh


Bio

Hello friends!

My name is Josh, and I've been playing guitar for about a decade now, and I've recently received my BA in Jazz composition and performance. I've been songwriting since I was 17 years old. I'm currently 27. I love passing on the information that I've accumulated through my years of study. Although I'm a "Jazz Guitarist", I play MANY other styles. When I was studying in Vancouver, Canada I was in 6 bands at one point! I've played in Ska bands, punk bands, Folk...

Hello friends!

My name is Josh, and I've been playing guitar for about a decade now, and I've recently received my BA in Jazz composition and performance. I've been songwriting since I was 17 years old. I'm currently 27. I love passing on the information that I've accumulated through my years of study. Although I'm a "Jazz Guitarist", I play MANY other styles. When I was studying in Vancouver, Canada I was in 6 bands at one point! I've played in Ska bands, punk bands, Folk duos/trios/quartets, Jazz duos/trios/quartets/ensembles, progressive rock, as well as my own band consisting of original compositions!

Enough about me though, I can't wait to hear all about you and your goals and aspirations! Message me any time and I'll be sure to respond to you as soon as possible!

I've taken 8 years of private study for guitar, and I've casually taught my friends over the years! I'm looking to take that experience and pass it on to my fellow students. I have ample knowledge in composition, music theory (classical and Jazz), guitar ergonomics, scales, techniques, songwriting, etc. I've written over 80 songs, released an album, and I'm currently recording my second album!

I'm a very chill and flexible guy. Let me know what day works best for you for a weekly or bi-weekly lesson and we can set you up! contact me if you've ever been interested in learning anything about music regarding guitar/voice/drums/piano/etc. Although I don't actively gig on all of these instruments, I have a well rounded knowledge of them all. So what are you waiting for?! Don't you want to have some fun playing your favorite songs?!

Knowledgeable Teacher

Josh is an experienced guitar player with many hours of practice and dedication under his belt. On the last lesson we had together we spoke of and delved into the importance of the four upper strings and the unique voicing that come from them. I highly recommend Josh as someone to help guide and further your own guitar journey.

Alejandro , 3 lessons with Josh

Has a great toolbox for all skill levels!

I'm a college student studying composition, and have been playing guitar for about 8 years now. It's not all that easy to find instructors with effective and refreshing techniques, but with Josh I've certainly found that so far. Clearly knows what he's talking about, and he kept me engaged with his positive energy 👍.

Corinne Ethel C, 2 lessons with Josh

So much fun in learning

My granddaughter I has a lot of energy; however, Josh has found an inner peace during her lessons. He interacts with her and even takes time to show off his skills with well-known tunes that my granddaughter has been able to sing along to. It was like a mini concert! She’s having so much fun!
