Joshua is a second-year graduate student in Historical Musicology. Before undertaking his PhD at Columbia, he completed both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music at Royal Holloway, University of London. 

His research interests are focused on various aspects of musical culture in nineteenth-century Europe and America, with a special emphasis on the cultural and sociological transformations of high art musical practice that occurred over the course of the nineteenth century. More specifically, he is interested in the early history of the conservatory and the harnessing of music within projects of social reform and moral education.
