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 confi...dence. 5 star experience !!

Thank you Haydn for taking the time to share this feedback about your experience of your Ukulele lessons with me so far. I am glad that the initial trepidation you experienced before starting your lessons with me has been put to one side and that you feel 'at ease' in my lessons. I do try my best to make sure that I provide a welcoming and supportive environment for all my students and I am glad that this has helped you to relieve any initial anxiety you may have had. You are a pleasure to teach and I hope that your four legged friend doesn't find my ramblings too unbearable! I am so glad that you are feeling confident enough now to join in with the local Ukulele band rehearsals and I hope that you are enjoying the experience of sharing your newly developed skills.

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.

Thank you Maggie for taking the time to share this feedback with me about your experience of your Ukulele lessons so far. I am glad that you have found my lessons to be encouraging and motivational; as you know I like to be over organised, but I also believe that being flexible is really important. You are a pleasure to teach and I hope that you continue to enjoy developing your fingerstyle Ukulele playing and then the possibility of revisiting your Classical Guitar Studies.

Josh 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.

Thank you Sarah for taking the time to share your kind feedback regarding Jazzie's lessons with me. I knew that it had been some time since our trial lesson and demonstrating her own music (especially when it has such personal significance to the songwriter) was such a brave thing to do, so WELL DONE JAZZIE! She is a pleasure to work with and demonstrates such passion towards music, it is going to be a privilege to work with her as she continues to develop her own musical style; I am sure that she will grow in confidence along the way.

Electric Guitar Lessons
5
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!!

Thank you Norman for taking the time to leave me this feedback. I am glad that you are enjoying your lessons with me and that you have found that your personalised training plan is helping you to progress at a pace that you are comfortable with, whilst also taking you gradually out of your comfort zone; helping to boost your self confidence in what you are capable of doing using this instrument. You are a pleasure to work with and I very much look forward to continuing to support you with your continued musical studies.

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.

Thank you Andy for taking the time to complete this review. You were a privilege to teach and I am sad that due to geographical circumstances I am not able to continue your lessons. I hope that you are able to find another teacher who is able to continue to nurture your love of this instrument and I wish you all the best for the future!
