Playing music is creative, artful, helping us express emotions and communicate deeply, it sharpens the mind, improves our focus, our attention span, and our memory;
Studying and playing music helps us learn better, improves our health, refreshes us, reduces stress, relaxes and energizes us.  
Best of all, playing music with others, your family, friends, in worship, in groups, bands or ensembles is fun and makes you feel great!  
Pretty cool isn’t it? Try it. It’s never too late.

Josh Graduation picOne-on-one music instruction in Cypress, Texas that is enjoyable and effective.  Music lessons for children and adults.  I can help you gain the musical knowledge and confidence to play music by yourself, with your family, friends, with others or in worship. Music lessons are designed to meet your music goals (playing for pleasure/health or to prepare for some type of performance) and your individual learning style (focus/attention, learning, reading challenges, performance anxiety).  Whether an adult or a child, my students learn to play their instrument correctly, with expression, to enjoy what they do and how to teach themselves.
