BIO: Hey, I’m Josh! I have been a professional recording artist for over 30 years on Sony / UMG / WEA and many indie labels. I received my degree from NYU School of Music Business and also attended University of Michigan ( Jazz studies ) and Manhattan School of Music ( Jazz Piano ). However, the greatest education I got was being mentored by the legendary Dr. John in the stylings of New Orleans, Funk, Gospel, Blues piano, and the ultimate jazz bebop teacher - Barry Harris. In addition, I have written songs with everyone from John Oates of Hall and Oates to current pop and country no. 1 hit songwriters. I am a Grammy NARAS voting member, an active recording artist with my band ASHRR, and I have a passion for teaching enthusiastic students.
I have been playing professionally since I was a teenager. I've been teaching for 20 years; everything from New Orleans Funk, songwriting, production, and voice when time permits. I have taught masterclasses at Steinway Hall in NYC and performed around the world touring with everyone from The Neville Brothers to Joss Stone. In addition, I have produced many full big-band orchestral albums here in LA at Capitol, East West, United, and more and I've also placed several songs in film/tv.

I do not believe in one size fits all approach to teaching.
