Joshua Espinoza

An avid performer and educator, Baltimore pianist Joshua Espinoza balances his time sharing music on the stage and off. As a performer, Espinoza has played with renowned artists including Warren Wolf, Dezron Douglas, Jerome Jennings, Paul Bollenback, Miho Hazama, Alex Norris, John D’earth, Mike Pope, Kris Funn, Brian Settles, Todd Marcus, Chuck Redd, Ryan McGillicudy, Eugene Goss, and Gail Wynters, and on national stages including the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, The Kennedy Center, the Barns at Wolftrap, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and Keystone Korner Baltimore. With a style that is tastefully modern yet firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, Espinoza blends and bends genres into original compositions and arrangements that are immediately relatable, yet hard to define.

Currently a member of the music faculty at the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, Espinoza was a finalist in the 2018 Ellis Marsalis International Jazz Piano Competition, and was named “Most Promising Semi-Finalist” in the UNISA International Jazz Piano Competition in Pretoria, South Africa (2016). Each summer, Espinoza serves on the piano faculty at the Interlochen Arts Camp in Interlochen, MI and was previously on the faculties of the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, Franklin College (IN), and Morehead State University (KY). Espinoza holds a B.M. in Piano Performance from Furman University (SC) and an M.M
