Information About Joseph - Greenwich teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Joseph:
I'm a student living and studying music in London. My First instrument was the Trumpet but I've been playing Guitar for over 8 years now. Since I started playing music I've played in a number of ensembles, I started playing guitar in classical ensembles early on and moved on to participate more in rock and Jazz bands as I got older. As I have a background in classical music I have a very good understanding of formal classical practices and informal learning techniques.
I held a number of students while I was studying at collage, mostly through family or friends who wanted to learn the guitar, some who wanted to learn classical guitar and some who wanted to learn Rock and Pop styles. Many went on to continue with the guitar after I moved to London a few even ended up joining bands who I play shows with in my band to this day.
I believe in a ground up approach to musical tuition, though my chosen instrument is the guitar I try to establish a simple base of musical understanding with all my students whether they want to pursue a formal classical style of learning, or a casual learning approach. This includes knowledge of basic harmony (i.e, chords and scales) rhythm and meter. I also believe that playing with other musicians is a key part of learning to perform music, so I try to play with my students as much as I can. Ultimately I try to establish a functional knowledge and ability in music with my students so that they are able to play in ensembles and further their exploration of music.
