My name is Joshua Turner, I have been singing and playing instruments for over 10 years. I have been trained in the styles of rock, pop, blues, R&B, folk, classical, and opera. I got my vocal training from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston where I studied voice. I was trained by the best vocal teachers in the country and I have lots of Berklee curriculum to base my teachings off of. I also attended Musicians Institute for guitar study.
MY TEACHING STYLE:
My teaching style is very simple and to the point, the goal is to learn how to use your instrument. I don't like to get too technical about it because it can actually slow your progression down if you do. The simplest way that I was taught to sing is that "if it hurts, you are singing wrong." That is why vocal exercises are so important to keep your voice strong so you can build stamina and avoid pain, I also have audio vocal exercises that I can provide. I don't like to put people down while they are learning because I know that singing and playing an instrument is a really sensitive thing and that could cause the singer or musician to stop singing or playing completely, which defeats the whole purpose. I have experience in all forms of music from live rock shows, to teaching music in pre-schools. I teach confidence!
THE BENEFITS OF MY MUSIC LESSONS:
-Higher self esteem
-Stronger social skills
-And so much more!
You are actually learning all of the above things, while simultaneously learning your instrument! If you follow the lesson plan that I provide you, my GUARANTEE is that you will become a noticeably better musician and singer and unlock a new found confidence within 4 lessons (1 month).

My Music Coaching Business
I really enjoy my instructor. He is very constructive in helping me see what I'm doing and where I need to spend time practicing. I feel like I'm improving. Thank you Joshua!
Great approach that is patient, educational and fun for student!
All of my lessons with Joshua T were excellent. I would recommend him highly.
Super helpful and inspiring. No hesitation on pursuing my interests.
I have to say, Joshua's approach is unlike what I've experienced. He can be as technical as you require, and has worked with all ages and skill levels, however, what I enjoy the most is that he teaches from a human level. He focuses on you as an individual, and is considerate of your goals and preferences as a musician. He can even help you develop what those are - along with your confidence - if you haven't figured out what they might be yet. Just an awesome teacher!+ Read More
