I have been working as a Guitar Teacher for 15 years and I am a highly valued member of the peripatetic staff at the schools where I work. Trained in the Kodaly method by The DaCapo Music Foundation, my experience is wide-ranging, from taking students through formal exams to leading guitar ensembles and rock band masterclasses. I have expertise in teaching both acoustic and electric styles to children of all ages. I also teach privately and have students specialising in folk fingerstyle, rock, blues and songwriting.
I pride myself in getting the best out of my students while also keeping lessons fun and highly musical. My specialism is in folk fingerstyle guitar and guitar based composition but I am well able to adapt to the interests and ambitions of students, whether they be classical, jazz, rock or folk based. I have exceptional organisational skills as demonstrated by my ability to manage timetables, concert schedules and accounts. As a performer, I have appeared at some of the UK’s most distinguished venues and my music has been used across the major TV channels.
“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.” Arthur, Dulwich, 14
“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.” Polly
“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." Duska
