About Joseph R.

Joe's experience as a musician has seen him perform extensively in the UK and overseas with his original rock band 'Insurgent', whilst also building experience in the professional studio environment. As well as this, Joe holds a 2:1 Ba(Hons) degree in Professional Musicianship from the British Institute of Modern Music in Birmingham and endorsements from Victory Amplification and Bare Knuckle Pickups.

Joe's Approach to Teaching
Joe is a firm believer that every student is capable of developing a unique musical identity and will endeavour to help every student achieve this goal in an engaging and encouraging manner. He makes sure to bring his first-hand professional experience and know-how to every lesson to help students of any age and ability achieve their musical aspirations, whatever they may be. Having learnt from some of the most experienced musicians in the country during his time at University, Joe understands exactly what is required of a professional tutor and is excited to help you on your path to musical success.

What You Can Expect To Learn
Joe's lessons will help guide you through the various elements of guitar playing, some of which may include:

-Rhythm Guitar
-Lead Guitar Techniques
-Song Learning
-Live Performance
-Music Theory
-Songwriting and Compositional Analysis
-Warm up and Practice Exercises

Although these are just some of the topics covered, please don't hesitate to let Joe know what you want to get out of each lesson, as that's what it's all about!

Joe specialises in Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Classic Rock and Blues Guitar, however he is happy to teach other genres such as funk and pop as well.

Your First Lesson
The first lesson is a brilliant way for you to tell Joe exactly what you are looking to learn. During this time, together you will construct a solid framework upon which your lessons will be based going forward. Joe will always endeavour to teach you at least one new thing in this trial lesson so that you have something to get started on right away!

Advice for Beginners
Taking lessons at an early stage in your musical learning can be a little daunting, however Joe will ensure that every lesson is both fun and appropriately challenging. He advises that you spend 10-15 minutes warming up before each lesson, as well as ensuring that your guitar is in tune. If you are very new to the guitar, make sure to use a light gauge of strings as this will make playing the guitar a little easier. This is particularly important for young players who are keen to learn quickly and stay engaged with their instrument. I recommend Ernie Ball Super Slinky or Ernie Ball Extra Slinky strings.

Joe is a passionate tutor and always loves the challenge of creating an exciting and uniquely tailored musical experience for each student. He looks forward to hearing from you.

I’ve had 5 lessons with Joe at this point and am very satisfied with the way they’re going. At present, my lessons are split about 50:50 between him helping me with riffs I already know and learning to play them more efficiently, and being taught new riffs and exercises to help with various aspects of my guitar playing. Despite the difficulties of teaching over zoom, he is particularly good at picking up how I’m playing riffs as well as understanding my general technique and this has led to lots of suggestions for improvement in a short space of time. As someone who listens largely to rock and metal, Joe has been great at suggesting riffs and songs in the genre and was also happy to downtune one of his guitars, making it easy for us to play in the same key. In addition to the lessons, Joe also sends me an email the day after the lesson, detailing everything we covered and these often contain links to songs to try, or tabs for exercises, which I’ve found to be really helpful particularly when we’ve covered a lot in a lesson. Overall, I’m very happy with both his teaching and the progress I’ve made, over the last few months and would recommend Joe to anyone looking to improve their playing.
