Highly recommended.

I can’t recommend Joshua highly enough. Prior to my guitar lessons I had absolutely no experience of playing a musical instrument even in my youth. Joshua had to be very patient, starting from the very basic skills required to play the most basic tunes up to being able to play more complicated popular music. I would definitely have continued lessons with Joshua had it not been for the distance we now live apart.

Electric Guitar Lessons
I'm 68 years old and finally learning the electric guitar I bought when I retired 6 years ago. I've found Joshua to be the perfect teacher for me. He took the time to find out about my musical tastes and tailored my lessons around them. Joshua is extremely patient and has allowed me to control the speed at which I progress whilst still managing to give me the confidence to try things I think I will not be able to achieve. I'm thoroughly enjoying my lessons and looking forward to performing my first Eric Clapton tribute concert!!

Joshua is fun, observant and focused.
My 11 year old has just started singing her own music with Josh, I loved the way he just picked up his guitar and started sorting cords out, her face was WOW. Also Josh noticed when Jazz was feeling shy and a little uncomfortable and got her to stand up and do funny noises to make her laugh but also help her vocals. Josh is fun,observant and focused.

Joshua is totally professional. 5 star experience!!
As a 74 year old total ukulele beginner with no musical history I booked my lessons with Joshua with a degree of trepidation, I need not have worried, Joshua is totally professional and managed to make me feel totally at ease from the very first moment, now 3 months and 12 lessons later I feel progress has been made and I can now join in with my local town ukulele band with a degree of confidence. 5 star experience!!

Mr Horsey is my ideal tutor - organised, flexible, fun and skilled teacher
As an older person currently learning to play solo ukulele, finger plucking style, and hoping to go on to re-learn the Classical Guitar, my ideal tutor would be organised,flexible,fun and a skilled teacher. Well I have found him ! Mr Horsey is all of these things and also superbly encouraging. You leave each lesson highly motivated.
