About MeI have toured though the United States as a performing singer and instrumentalist three times. I have also toured though Europe, in counties like Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and in venues such as St. Peter's Basilica, Mt. Pilatus in the Swiss Alps, and many other famous venues. With all of that experience, performing isn't what I love to do. As much as I enjoyed touring and Europe, nothing compares to the feeling of seeing a student get excited about music, and excel in their own musical journey with my guidance.
Joshua R has over 14 years of music experience in the San Antonio area.
Formal Education:Formal Education was primarily in my school choir, led by Christian Delacuz at Ronald Reagan High School, and my church choir. I was a part of the Ronald Reagan Varsity Choir as a Tenor 1 and helped lead our choir to sweepstakes at UIL. I currently attend Texas State University as a music education major and serve as a member of the American Choral Directors Association.
Private Education:I took private lessons with Samuel Pitambar, a voice coach at Lee High School and a music director at Northside Church. Those lasted about 2 years, and then I started taking lessons with Joanne Kangas for about 2 years. Joanne has a masters degree in Opera fom Julliard. I then began lessons with Kristan Roach, Opera Director for Texas State University, and I know study with Dr. Myra Vassian, former Juilliard Voice instructor and current voice teacher for Texas State University.
Performing Experience:I come from all sorts of styles when it comes to performing. I have been performing at Summit Christian Center since I was only 12 years old. I started out as their electric guitarist and over the years, I have played electric guitar, piano, drums, bass, and sang for their worship team. I was also part of an alternative rock/metal band known as Just a Deam. I performed with them for 5 years as a lead singer and bassist. Over those 5 years, we have gone on 3 national tours and released a full-length album and a music video. My classical/choral experience was with the Ronald Reagan Varsity Choir, the San Antonio Choral Society, and the Texas State University Singers.
Experience Teaching:I have been giving private lessons for voice, piano, and guitar for about 6 years now. My students have started at all sorts of different levels, but all have progressed in their time with me. From children to young adults, to middle aged adults, I have taught all ages.
