About Joshua

Thank you for visiting!

 Joshua began studying music at a young age learning piano and singing from his mother who was a music major @ Seton Hill university.

At age 11 he began playing the guitar and devoted himself to it entirely.

He was self taught until the age of 22 when he began studying under Jazz Guitarists Ken Karsh and Jimmy Ponder in Pittsburgh PA.

He and Joshua Ben later co-founded the Jazz-Fusion project 'The Strangers' and played with them from 2002-2007.

He was a guest artist on Colyn Fischer's debut album 'New and Traditional Music in the Scottish Style.'

He recorded his first solo compilation of recordings 'The Truth Hurts Boulevard' in 2010.

In 2012, Josh began performing with the Derek Woodz Band who just recordered their first studio EP.  They will be touring this summer.

Today, he is devoted entirely music and to teaching the younger generation to appreciate and love it as much as he does. Enjoy the site.  If you have any questions about lessons or live shows, please feel free to
contact Joshua.
