Joshua Tamayo   Music director, conductor, principal pianist, organist, teacher and composer

Joshua fell in love with music at age 4 when he made his first contact with the piano at the New Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Canada. When he was only 7 years old, he was already given his first opportunity to play a Mozart Sonata and a contemporary pop song on CityTV’s breakfast television show in May of 1992. In 1995, he enrolled at St. Michael’s Choir School where he embraced an intense musical tutelage. He received honors as an Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto (ARCT) at age 13, and soon after, completed his theoretical studies in music in August 2001.

He attended University of Toronto majoring in piano performance, and later, specialized in music and audio engineering and production at Recording Arts Canada in downtown Toronto. 

On the international level, Joshua has participated in many musical functions as a pianist, accompanist, and chorister. He has traveled from Montreal to Vancouver, various parts of the United States, and as far as Italy for concerts and competitions. He has been privileged to perform for several notables including Pope John Paul II, Queen Elizabeth II, former Prime Minister Chrétien, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra as guest conductor. He has been a featured performer at many prestigious venues in Toronto including: the Canadian National Exhibition Centre, Living Arts Centre, Sony Centre of the Performing Arts, St. Lawrence Centre of the Performing Arts, Markham Theatre, Royal York Hotel, Roy Thompson Hall, and Massey Hall over the past 15 years.

      Currently, Joshua continues to share his passion for music as a teacher, pianist, accompanist, organist, as well as co-music director of St. Barnabas Catholic Church in Scarborough, and as music director and conductor of Windmill Theatre Productions in Mississauga, ON.
