Joshua has been selected to represent Calgary five times at the Provincial Music Festival and has won numerous medals by achieving the highest mark at the festival in different categories. He was a first place and scholarship winner in 2015, 2016 and 2017 Provincial Music Festivals. In 2018 he was selected to represent Alberta to compete in National Music Festival.

An active participant in the Canadian Music Competition, Joshua has been selected as a National Finalist every year since entering the competition and has placed near the top nationally. Joshua has played for such notable musicians as Alessandra Ammara and Alessio Bax, as well as Aquiles Delle Vigne, Gabriel Kwok and Andrey Pisarev. Joshua received awards for outstanding achievement at Coimbra World Piano Meetings in Portugal for both 2016 and 2017. Joshua was named a winner for 2017 C3 Concerto Competition and performed with the Calgary Civic Symphony in April 2017.
