Joshua Waldron began his formal musical training on the piano at the age of 15. Soon thereafter he began his studies at UNCSA, where he earned his high school diploma as well as a B.M. in Piano Performance. His principal teachers at UNCSA included Eric Larsen in piano and Kenneth Frazelle in Orchestration and Counterpoint.
In addition to his studies at UNCSA, he attended summer courses at Interlochen Center for the Arts, Boston Conservatory and Meadowmount School of Music. In 2008-2009 he attended courses at Salem College under professor Barbara Lister-Sink, focusing on Injury-Preventative Keyboard Technique. During this time, Josh also began to turn his attention to electroacoustic music composition, leading him to pursue courses in Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, Netherlands. He remains active in studying the piano repertoire as well as composing.
