- How much do you charge?
My fees are as follows: 1 hour £30, 45 mins £25 and 30 mins £20
- Where do you teach?
Because of time restrictions, I teach only from home. I operate an open diary system so that a mutually agreed time is arranged for the next lesson. Areas close to where I live, which is Harringay, are Islington, Finchley, Muswell Hill, Holloway, Hampstead, Wood Green, Tottenham, Camden Town, Highbury, Crouch End, Angel and Finsbury Park.

Generally from Tuesday to Friday evenings from 6pm onwards, with the last lesson finishing at 8 - 8.30pm, the occasional weekend lesson is possible in exceptional circumstances (eg exam etc).
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach from 12 years old right through to OAP level.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Please give me a call and we can discuss teaching options for you. Please be careful when looking for a teacher, you must ensure that they have studied at one of the main music Conservatories in the country, such as the Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Trinity College of Music or Guildhall School of music (these are the London Conservatories). BEWARE OF TEACHERS WHO ONLY HAVE GRADE 8 LISTED AS QUALIFICATIONS, AND CLAIM TO BE PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS - THEY ARE NOT!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I am an experienced private teacher and performer. I have been teaching for 20 years and the age range I teach is currently from 14 - 78! I like to cater for my students needs and tastes in music, ranging from classical to lighter music, and have a friendly and positive attitude to my students. I teach all levels from beginners to post grade 8. I have a lot of performing experience, including playing occasionally with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Fulham Symphony Orchestra (where I am principal clarinet), and have performed as a soloist in Britain and in various places in Europe, including Denmark, France and Austria. I am also a member of a saxophone quartet.

I trained with Peter Howes, who himself was trained by Reginald Kell.
