I am an accomplished guitarist with over ten years' experience as a peripatetic guitar tutor. I have performed at the Barbican Centre, Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall and my music has been placed on ITV, Channel 4 and Sky. I currently teach for The DaCapo Music Foundation, Christchurch School Chelsea, and privately. I hold a first class degree in Music and am trained in the Kodaly method for music teaching by DaCapo.

I have a proven track record of planning and delivering lessons for a wide range of abilities, ages and styles, and am highly experienced in developing resources for my students. I have a flexible and student-centred approach, tailoring lessons to the enthusiasms of students while also integrating musicianship skills, formal technique and improvisation. Throughout the year I prepare students for concerts in schools and take pupils through exams with Trinity, LCM, Rock School and ABRSM.

Yes

Josh is very talented. He is flexible about what we play and finds things that suit my ability. He creates a fun environment to learn.

Josh has been teaching my son electric and electro acoustic guitar for a year. His stimulating and relaxed approach means that I find my son plays his guitar on a daily basis just because he enjoys it, yet he is still covering quite a lot of technical stuff.

D
Duska

My 12-year old daughter has been taking guitar classes with Joshua Geffin for over a year now. Previously she tried a couple of different instruments and music teachers but even though she is very musical and loves music, she would get bored and lose interest after a while. Josh's inspirational and creative approach to teaching changed all this...”

D
Duska

“...She became passionate about playing her guitar, singing and writing her own music. Practicing is no longer a chore but fun and she looks forward to her class every week. In a relatively short period she made remarkable progress and has recently won a full music scholarship at Kingsdale.

I took up the guitar in my 30s and am far from a natural musician! I've had a few teachers – all brilliant guitarists - but none have quite combined the same high level of patience, encouragement and flexibility as Josh. He let's me play music I love and progress at my own pace.

J
Jeanette

As a 'mature' student with an incredibly busy job, it is important that I don't feel under pressure if I haven't played between lessons. Josh is completely understanding of this and the fact that he teaches at my home is a massive bonus. He is a natural and talented teacher and I would not hesitate to recommend his lessons to anyone of any level.

P
Pete

I have been having lessons with Josh for around 2 years now. He has really helped develop and improve the quality of my playing and also my appreciation of music as a whole and I am very happy with my progress.

P
Pete

...The lessons are always relaxed and enjoyable, but also professional with a focus and tailor-made according to my own personal goals, which I like. I prefer to concentrate on learning songs and to experiment with a variety of genres. Josh helps me do that and he keeps things fun by mixing in improvisation sessions and technique development to bring me on and help me improve as a player.
