Rated 5 out of 5 by Chao Thanks Joshua!
Lessons with Joshua are the highlights of my week. I'm a busy professional who works ~60 hour weeks every week, but lessons with Joshua motivates me to practice on top of that.
Firstly, he is a great singer himself, works in the theater business and performs regularly - which is what you want in a teacher (you don't want do _learn_ from someone who don't _do_ what he/she's teaching). A well-trained singer like him can recognize instantly what you're doing wrong and what needs to be done to fix it. He has well-developed ideas ready for you to utilize to improve your technique. They include analogies, ways to think about your body and your resonators, etc. His teaching also helps you understand what you need to do to sing in a particular style (in which you may not always want to sing "correctly") and what is healthy for your voice vs what is not.
Secondly, his lessons are enormously fun. He achieves a great balance of keeping things light and keeping things professional. We get work done each lesson but it never feels like work. I always leave lessons feeling like it was too short. I would probably book three-hour lessons every time if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KaBB26 Joshua is wonderful!
I've always wanted to learn how to sing, but was too insecure/too uncertain to know where to start. Joshua has been amazing at teaching an absolute beginning, from how to correctly breathe, to learning how to match pitch, to recently making it through one of my first songs successfully. Joshua is incredibly warm and supportive; I highly recommend him as a teacher!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoyleZ Thank You Josh!
Wow, what can I say. I came to Josh timid, unconfident, with no idea how to sing. I wanted to sing an a capella arrangement for my wife at our wedding and Josh certainly helped me along.What a world of difference from when I started to left. Very patient, understanding vocal coach, will challenge and inspire his students..Thank you Josh! I could not have done it without you.

Joshua is a superb teacher at many levels. He is insightful and intuitive, and at the same time, very technical and talented. Last but not least, he is also patient and kind. He is perhaps the best teacher I've ever had (and, believe me, I went to school for a long time!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by SheilaW Student's (Ella) mother
Ella and I think Joshua is fabulous! He is a technically excellent and enthusiastic teacher with great personality. My only request is that he has Ella sing a song or two during each lesson as doing so will keep her interest up. She knows the basics are important but is a bit frustrated that she hasn't had the chance to sing much. Although she understands the importance of learning the skills, she is only 10 and I think singing a song or two with Joshua giving her tips will actually make her more committed to practicing and focusing on technique.Overall we are thrilled with Joshua and recommending him to friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NicolasB Wonderful personalized vocal training!
A really top notch teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a teacher that will expand and push their skills. Joshua is extremely adept at identifying and working on your weaker spots while at the same time perfecting your strengths, but in all in a constructive way. He does a great job at explaining the concepts of singing in an understandable and comprehensible way, so that one can really understand how to advance and correct bad habits. However, FYI he is not a teacher for students who just want someone to praise their every note or just to practice a song or two, he for those who want to become better singers. Like a good trainer he will adjust to your level and push you. I can only imagine where I'll be 6 months to a year from now!
