This was fantastic. ... I didn’t think this would be as helpful as it was and the fact that I can replay it over and over again is a bonus for me to remember all the pieces. Thanks very much!
— Ann McPherson, current student

I think the length of the video is perfect and I like that you introduce the technique before playing through the etude. I also thought your explanations and practice suggestions were well presented.

Joshua’s teaching videos help my daughter connect to the etude and deepens her musicality. The breakdown of a professional musician’s approach, the demands of the piece, and finally the technical skills Joshua points out gives her a sense of clear direction and mastery. After watching a video lesson, my nine year old daughter comes away with a greater sense of command and plays with much more focus and confidence. Thanks so much for sharing these!

Sam finally moved onto Kinsey 24 yesterday, so we had the chance to view the video. I especially appreciate having your instructions on video, as Sam will sometimes argue about what you said or did not say in class, so it is nice to have a reference he cannot dispute. It is also nice for Sam to hear the etude as he is practicing. He can imitate almost anything he hears. Interpreting written music is much harder for him.
