    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    My name is Joshua Halbert. I'm 33 years old. I have been teaching for 12 years. I have a masters degree in teaching and a bachelors degree in performance. I started playing classically when I was 4 and studied jazz in college. I started guitar when I was 13 and bass when I was 15. I sang throughout my career as a musician, performing with my college choir with the Everett symphony in the mid 2000's and also sang in the WWU choir as well as studying privately. I studied with members of the Seattle symphony and quite a few nationally touring musicians in the Rock, Classical, Blues and Jazz genres. I have coached for local school districts on stringed instruments, piano, bass and voice. I have put in over 10000 hours and feel I am qualified to teach all of these instruments equally well. I am also state certified to teach.

    My Teaching Background
    12 years of teaching privately. I teach for local colleges and school districts. I toured with quite a few well known musicians. I have done studio work with some well known musicians. I have garnered a reputation for my students high level of achievement by my peers and many students have gone on to receive college scholarships at some of the most esteemed collegiate institutions in America. I have worked with students from age 3 and up. I'm also popular with my later or adult beginners because of my emphasis on quick results while placing importance on enjoying the musical journey.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I approach teaching in an open environment where my lessons are individually tailored to fit my students needs. What I look for in my students is communication about direction of curriculum so that I can choose pieces and methodology which inspires my students to practice. I offer providing the best possible service which I can. I believe that I provide the most value possible and go the extra mile for my students.
