Whether you want to learn a musical instrument for the first time, are coming back to playing after a long break or want to develop your performance technique and music theory knowledge; my lessons provide a comprehensive and personal programme of study to help you to achieve your learning goals.

I also provide vocal coaching to develop your singing alongside guitar accompaniment lessons if this is something you are interested in.

With my lessons you can:

* Learn from an experienced Registry of Guitar Tutors ([email protected]) member with a degree in music, who is also a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians;

* Gain internationally recognised qualifications;
Construct tailored lesson plans to suit your individual learning goals;

* Have consultation lessons for GCSE and A-Level Music from an ex-Head of Music & qualified secondary school teacher;

* Develop performance, composition and general musicianship skills in a variety of styles;

* Interact with other students at my Concerts & Workshops;

* Enjoy exploring a world of music.

All lessons are taught in my Dedicated Music Teaching Studio in Somerton. (Completed in July 2019)

I have an Enhanced DBS certificate and Public Liability insurance, as well as in depth safeguarding and child protection training from my experience as a secondary school teacher.

Please feel free to peruse my professional profiles with any the following organisations, all of which I am a full member of: the Registry of Guitar Tutors (which is affiliated with the London College of Music); the Incorporated Society of Musicians and the Musicians Union.

If you have any questions or want to organise a trial lesson, feel free to contact me.

I teach from any stage; from absolute beginner to advanced students and am happy for parents to sit in with younger students.

You can book lessons lasting 45, 60 or 120 minutes.

Lesson prices are inclusive of any resources and refreshments that I provide; any additional resources such as musical equipment, books and additional music arrangements & compositions are available at an additional cost.

If this is your first lesson with me then I offer a 'Half Price Trial Lesson'. This first lesson is a chance for us to get to know each other, for me to discuss your personalised lesson plans with you and for you to decide whether I will be the right music tutor for you. This is offered on a no obligation basis.

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.

Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Otherwise please do feel free to visit my website @

    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.

    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.

    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 confidence. 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.

    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.

      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.
