As well as this, Joseph teaches music theory, applying theory onto the fretboard, songwriting and improvisation which involves topics such as: notes on the fretboard, chords/harmony, advanced/extended chords, scales, modes and improvising over chord changes.
In addition to teaching, Joseph provides work as a live and studio musician having recorded in a variety of Manchester-based studios and also performing in a variety of bands and ensembles, regularly playing guitar in function bands for weddings and corporate events, travelling all over the country.

"I feel that Joe has already achieved an impressive level of musicianship and performance skills." - Johnny Heyes (Guitarist/Session Musician/Teacher)
