Information about Joseph

I studied Musicology at Oxford University, earning a First Class undergraduate degree with the third highest mark in the year, a Masters with Distinction and, in 2019, I was awarded a DPhil/PhD. During this time I held an Organ Scholarship at Jesus College, the John Brookman Scholarship at Wadham College, and a Graduate Development Scholarship at St Anne’s College. Alongside my doctoral research I taught at the Faculty of Music at Oxford, leading tutorials and seminars for undergraduate students within the department, and assisting during the admissions process.

I like teaching that is adaptive, responding to the individual needs of each of his students and tailoring my method accordingly. Allied with this is my firm belief that showing is more valuable teaching approach than telling; a student will learn better, and remember what they have learnt for longer, if they are given the space to find out answers for themselves. However, I recognise that effective tuition also necessitates structure and so make sure to underpin my teaching method with realisable, progressive goals.

Aside from teaching, I also work as a sound artist and performer and my work has featured in venues across Europe and Japan. In my spare time, I enjoy learning to play new musical instruments, 20th-century art and literature, and exploring South East London.

Availability: I work as a freelancer so am very happy to arrange my schedule around the needs of my students!

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I worked as a tutor at the University of Oxford for three years, specialising in music history, the philosophy and sociology of music, composition, and essay writing and study skills. Since 2013 I have also been involved in the admissions process at Oxford University’s Faculty of Music, acting as the central marker for performance auditions and composition submissions. Alongside my university teaching, I have also taught a number of students privately in Oxford and London, and mentored in numerous outreach projects and courses.
