Hello there, I’m Josh - I am an experienced violin teacher based here in Birmingham.

My main focus is to provide exciting and engaging violin lessons, whilst still providing high quality information which enable my students to progress with confidence. I like my students to have a ‘balanced diet’ approach to their learning, which means alongside learning fantastic pieces of music, they have scales and studies which help them technically and ensure they have the foundations to learn pieces they want to play with ease and comfort. Sometimes all a student needs is one or two ‘golden nuggets’ of information which can solve a lot of problems with the violin. I focus on posture and set up, which for a lot of players can be an issue which prevents their development.

I have vast experience teaching many different ages and abilities. I have held posts such as violin teacher for Birmingham Music Service, teaching one to one lessons in schools, whole class group lessons, as well as giving orchestra sectionals to area ensembles.

As well as my teaching in schools I have taught privately for many years, from beginner to intermediate and right through to advanced students preparing for music college auditions. I have prepared students for ABRSM exams, all of them gaining fantastic marks in all aspects of their playing!

Whatever age or ability, if you are looking for a violin teacher who can offer experience, guidance, support knowledge on how to play the violin then please get in touch to arrange a lesson!

I travel to my students to provide high quality tuition in the comfort of their own home.
