"I have found Joshua to be a very reliable and conscientious individual. He is always polite and enthusiastic, and has consistently shown a degree of commitment that I believe is unusual in this field ; my kids always want to attend his lessons and benefit from an individually tailored approach to their own particular musical styles.
