Information About Joseph - Blackheath teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Joseph:
Originally from Dorset, Joseph is a pianist and composer based in Greenwich, London. Joseph has made accountable success, winning competitions such as the Windsor Piano Competition in 2015 and 2016 as well as the Basingstoke Music and Arts Festival. He received a scholarship to study at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2015 studying with Philip Fowke with guidance from Mikhail Kazakevich, Douglas Finch, Peter Tuite, Sergio De Simone, Hilary Coates and Philip Lange. Joseph also studied composition with Deirdre Gribbin.
Joseph has given recitals in several venues including 49 Queens' Gate Terrace, South Kensington for the Vernon Ellis Foundation, the Chris Venables Piano Showroom, St. Alfege Church, Greenwich and the Old Royal Naval College. Joseph's passion in repertoire lies with the contemporary-classical genre and he has premiered many of his own works during his recitals. Despite this preference, Joseph also triumphs in performing staple repertoire such as Beethoven Sonatas, Chopin Nocturnes and the music of the Baroque. Recent performances include the Thomas Hardy Biannual Conference in Dorchester, Cheap Street Church, Sherborne and St. Alfege Church, London.
I have been teaching privately since 2011 and work with a range of abilities from complete beginners to advanced students of all ages. I teach both casually and through graded syllabuses. I am also able to help with GCSE/A level courses and composition, depending on the student's needs. As well as teaching one to one, I have run multiple workshops in schools around the UK to classes of up to forty students.
Whether a pupil wishes to work through graded exams or casually, I teach in a manner that is personal to each individual, working at the students own pace in a way that they not only gain a solid foundation of technique, but an understanding of subjects such as the art of practice, theory, history of music in context and performance. My approach has been moulded by a diverse range of experiences as well as tuition from some of the country's most celebrated concert pianists. It is my goal to help my pupils gain a clear understanding in all fields so that they are able to work on new pieces independently and effectively. Most importantly however, I seek to let the individual learn in a relaxed, informal environment that nurtures their passion for music.
