Joshua Hall has worked to create unique ideas on performing, teaching, and composing. He has led several undergrad flute technique classes, focusing not only on scales and exercises, but also on aspects of his own pedagogy project, Improving Technique Through Repertoire. Joshua earned his DMA from the University of Colorado, studying with Christina Jennings and working as a Teaching Assistant. He also held a TA position at Texas Tech University where he earned a Master’s degree in Performance. At Texas Tech, Joshua won the concerto competition and taught weekly lessons for the Lubbock Independent School District and performed with the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra Woodwind Quintet in outreach concerts at elementary schools, retirement homes, and the children's hospital. He also subbed with the LSO and Chamber Music Amarillo, and has been a semi-finalist in the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Myrna Brown Artist Competitions. In the summer of 2016 he was a faculty member of the Santa Fe Flute Immersion, assisting with coaching sessions on solo repertoire, a mock audition, and performing in the final showcase concert.
Most recently, he was a finalist and honorable mention in the Colorado Flute Association's Young Artist competition in 2018 and 2019, has performed with the Boulder Altitude Directive (BAD new music ensemble), and holds the 3rd Flute/Piccolo position with the Denver Philharmonic. Joshua also enjoys composing, and one of his works, Trio for Three Flutes, has been performed in the U.S., Japan, and Spain. His primary teachers include Beth Wasson, Nicole Riner, Lisa Garner-Santa, and Christina Jennings.
