« I was looking for a saxophone teacher for my son and Alex was recommended by a fellow music teacher. Alex listened to our wishes about teaching approach, delivers varied lessons to maintain engagement and my son thoroughly enjoys learning with him. We can see lots of progress in my son’s playing too - both technically and in his performance. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex. »

Experience

As a member of the Tutor Panel at Enfield Music Service, The Dan Tien Performing Arts School and through working as a freelance tutor for over 5 years; I have had the pleasure of teaching hundreds of lessons to saxophone, clarinet and flute students of all ages (7 - 50 years), abilities (grades 1 - 8) and class sizes (1:1 - 20+), whilst also having experience in teaching SEN students (autistic, visually impaired).

Qualifications include a 2:1 Bachelor's in Music Performance from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and an Advanced DBS, as well as a full driver's license. As a performer I have played notable venues such as The Etihad Stadium, Barbican Music Hall and The Isle of Wight Festival.

I was looking for a saxophone teacher for my son and Alex was recommended by a fellow music teacher. Alex listened to our wishes about teaching approach, delivers varied lessons to maintain engagement and my son thoroughly enjoys learning with him. We can see lots of progress in my son’s playing too - both technically and in his performance. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex.

Alex is a nice person very approachable and a very good saxophonist. His lessons are structured around you and the style you want to play. Since I started with Alex my musicality has improved a lot especially in the technical area. He very educated in music and has a great passion, he is not just a tutor he’s a real saxophonist appearing in shows and gigs. I would recommend him to all young and old. I give him 10/10 customer satisfaction.

Alex is an excellent and creative teacher, and my first choice whenever I need a substitute or make a recommendation.

I have known Alex for many years, he is a proficient and impressive professional and an excellent educator. He communicates well and inspiring others comes naturally to him; students will benefit greatly from Alex's tutelage.
