Josh's Reviews

"I have known Josh in many diverse musical situations from Jazz, Rock, Pop and Blues. He has a natural ability and talent on the instrument in a way that he stands out as unusually well musically developed for his age. He is humble, polite and totally dedicated to any task ahead of him. Any student would benefit hugely from Josh as a teacher. A star in the making."

I needed guitar sections for a new track I'm writing, and boy did Josh deliver! The guitar STEMs are perfectly produced and blew away all my expectations. Josh is very easy going, easy to talk to and more than happy to work with either a rigid or vague description of what's needed. He's absolutely brilliant, and I definitely will work with him again!
