Ben - Coulby Newham - Saxophone

Methodology

I provide expert music tuition to people of all ages and abilities across Teesside, Tyneside and North Yorkshire. Lessons are always fun and challenging whether you want to practice for exams or simply because you love playing music.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach classical and jazz saxophone, jazz and classical music theory as well as pop guitar and singing/song writing. I can also provide help preparing students for GCSE music and A-Level music exams.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I completed my music studies at university with the best result of my year group and achieved a distinction at ABRSM grade 8 saxophone.

- How much do you charge?

Lessons are charged at £18 an hour or £10 for half an hour. I also charge for petrol depending on distance travelled.

- Where do you teach?

I encourage students to take lessons in their own homes, but lessons at my own home in Nunthorpe are possible if home visits are problematic. I generally teach in the Teesside/North Yorkshire area, but I can make visits to Tyneside on Thursdays.

- When are you available?

Any day and time excluding Thursday evenings is possible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages from 7 years onwards. I currently teach beginner and intermediate students (up to ABRSM grade 8 standard).

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Students who wish to pursue grades can take ABRSM Classical, Jazz or Theory exams. I like to have a chat with students before lessons commence about what they want to get out of their lessons and work around their needs and aspirations; I don't force anybody to take exams!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I love working with children and young people and have experience working in secondary schools as well as teaching privately. I am currently head of music studies and singing tuition at the Royalty Theatre Youth Academy in Sunderland.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I took up the sax aged 11 in Middlesbrough and have been playing ever since, picking up new instruments along the way before undertaking full time music study at university. I have been taught by Andrew Kerensky, Keith Robinson and Will Edmondes. I have been lucky enough to have been involved with workshops and master classes with Tim Garland, Snake Davis and Tommy Smith.
