Guitar Teaching

Joseph currently teaches both privately and at Independent Schools 'St. George's Weybridge', 'Reigate Grammar School' and at Wilson's School in South London; one of the country's most successful state funded selective boys' schools. Joseph teaches from the Trinity Guildhall, ABRSM, Rockschool and RGT grade boards and maintains 100% pass rate across all grade boards and an incredibly high merit+ rate of over 90%.

He is a young and vibrant teacher, having taught from the age of 15 and now accepts students at his home in South London. Lessons are tailored to the individual with a particular focus on learning songs by artists and bands that the student is most interested in. Joseph can push a student to the very best of their capabilities but also sees the guitar as a joy to play and recognises that learning for enjoyment can be the end in itself.

Joseph has a vast knowledge of classical repertoire and pedagogy and uses the studies of Sor, Carcassi, Aguado, Coste, Barrios, Villa Lobos and Brouwer in his classical teaching. He places a particular emphasis on effective and mindful practice so that each student is equipped with the skills they need to constantly reflect on their practice and playing in order to keep progressing.

Joseph currently teaches in the following boroughs of London: Southwark, Lambeth, Wandsworth, Croydon & Sutton.
