…We were surprised and delighted to discover that [Joshua]…was passionate about giving his students a far deeper appreciation for the subtleties of musical expression…He wants his students to understand how to turn an otherwise-competent musical performance into a piece of art that touches the audience. We loved the way Joshua challenged our kids to stretch their limits and play with sensitivity…[he was] extremely conscientious about the nuts and bolts of musical instruction…Joshua gets a double thumbs up from us!

—Joel and Susan Groover, student parents
