Though he played the guitar for years, Josiah Wiens found himself running up against stalled progress, anxiety over learning new material, and frustration with his lack of advancement. So he threw his ineffective practice philosophies aside and began to experiment with new learning techniques. Josiah eventually hit on a method that dispelled his anxiety while jump-starting his technical abilities and musical sensitivity. Now, he helps both beginners and more experienced players hung up on the same difficulties that plagued him by teaching classes that interweave functional mastery with theory, which deepens spontaneous musicality. He also ministers to the instruments themselves, fixing guitars that have played one too many solos or been given life by fell magic.
