Hello there, I'm Joshua.

I teach students in both Birmingham and Manchester, as well as in my online studio via Skype and Zoom.

All of my students learn on a 1-1 basis, each week following a bespoke practice schedule with email support from myself. Lessons are focused on technical and musical development through scales, studies and repertoire. Every lesson is unique and adaptable to the pupils needs. Each student is unique the way that they learn and process information, their character, their physicality... never one size fits all.

Development of an advanced violin technique which serves the music allows students' musicality to flourish as they achieve technical freedom.

Pieces are chosen which allow the pupil to progress, with enough challenge to enable them to grow as players and musicians.

Issues with tension and instrument hold are addressed immediately as this can create severe problems in discomfort, which restricts any kind of progression.

All of my students are prepared throughly for examinations, auditions, concerts and competitions.
