Ari Joshua graduated in 2001 with a degree in Jazz and Contemporary music from The New School In New York City. He also attended Rutgers University in New Jersey. Ari began private music lessons around the age of 14 and never turned back. Since graduating from college Ari has taught literally 1,000’s of music lessons to people of all ages, styles, and skill levels.

A uniquely diverse palette, the ability to transcend musical languages, masterful technique and a refreshing sense of artistic urgency make Ari Joshua a compelling young musician to watch. Currently residing in the Northwest, Ari performs regularly and can be seen and heard on guitar with his new underground rock band Big High, AriSawkaDoria – an Experimental Trio, and dozens of other unique projects that span genre and style.

Ari was born in Cape Town, South Africa but his early days as an artist were spent in Seattle, WA., where he grew up and first discovered his musical calling. His hard work and raw talent were quickly recognized, and Ari was awarded a scholarship to study music on the east coast after high school. “Moving to New York and studying music for 5 years was one of the richest experiences of my life,” says Ari. “It was from my fellow students and mentors at the New School and Mason Gross School of the Arts that I began to appreciate the true power of musical expression.”

Despite being relatively under the radar, Ari Joshua has recorded and performed and rubbed shoulders with a list that reads like a highly diverse Who’s Who of the music scene today: Robert Glasper, Stone Gossard, Peter Buck, Joe Doria, Michael Kang, Kevin Sawka, Michael Shrieve, The Benevento Russo Duo, Barrett Martin, EJ and Marcus Strickland, Reggie Watts, DJ Swamp, Blake Lewis, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Tom Morello, Mike McCready, Skerik, Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra, David Tiller, Matt Sircely, New Monsoon, David Brogen (ALO), Shawn Smith (Brad, Satchel), Handful of Lovin, Richie Beirach, Kenny Barron, Reggie Workman, Ted Dunbar, Jack Wilkins, Vic Juris, Hal Galper, Jimmy Owens, Milo Petersen, George Garzone, Armen Donelian, Richard Boukas, Bobby Sanabria, Bill Kirshner, Jimmy Cobb, Gary Dial, Classical Guitarist Virginia Luque, Ralph Peterson, Noah Baerman, Larry Ridly, Mike Richmond, Ralph Bowen, Bill Fielder, Badal Roy, Robert Bedford and many, many more.

Experience, humility, patience, and passion for the arts make Ari a wonderful teacher for people of all skill levels, styles, ages and walks of life.

I did like the article actually much, was actually informative and the best part was that alone the demanded percentage was elaborated, to the channelise concise information always helps and keeps readers feeding around digging for the information’s will never require a reread. I actually wish spammers read these articles and moderate how slow it is to exist human and respect knowledge.
