Had Josh as a teacher for about 5 or 6 years. Would not be where I’m at today as a guitarist or a musician without him. Great musician, great teacher, and a great person. Highly recommend. Thank you Josh!

Josh Stauffer has taught electric guitar to my son (starting at 8 years old) for more than two years. He was able to identify and correct weaknesses and technique and gave advice on how to approach new music, and to keep my son engaged in lessons and interested in playing. Josh is highly recommended for the guitar student!

I had several years of lessons with Joshua. He was highly responsive to my interests and priorities for growth as a guitarist. Even though I moved and could no longer take lessons, I still have his handwritten notes, assignments, and chord diagrams that I reference to this day! I would highly recommend Joshua for guitarists of any skill level seeking to improve their playing.
