As an older person currently learning to play finger picking style ukulele and eventually hoping 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 and superbly encouraging. You leave each lesson greatly motivated.

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!!

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.

My teaching approach is based around developing a comprehensive and personal training plan which suits your individual learning goals and aspirations, including what skills and experience you have and your wider interests. 

I also offer paired/group lessons if such an arrangement is desirable. Please make this request clear when contacting me to arrange your lessons; so that I can make any necessary adjustments to my facilities in order to cater for your tailored needs.
