My specialism is helping adults and teens to learn the conventions of jazz, and use it creatively to learn to improvise and write their own music, but I will of course consider everyone who gets in touch whatever their age, level, or musical interests, and I offer my students the opportunity to:
- master the various elements of sax/piano technique
- learn to read music
- learn to play by ear
- enter for graded music exams
- learn some of your favourite songs
- expand your musical horizons through listening and playing
- develop self-expression through music
- understand music theory
- write your own original music
- learn to improvise your own music
Don't panic if you don't yet know what your goals are - we can work it out together. Looking forward to hearing from you!
I have a first-class honours bachelor's degree in Jazz Saxophone from the prestigious Middlesex University BA Jazz programme, and 10+ years of experience running the gamut as a gigging/session saxophonist, taking me to clubs and festivals across the country, and recording at studios including Abbey Road.
Although my degree and the majority of my professional experience is as a saxophonist, I am now more focused on the piano and most of my students are piano students. I moved to Brighton in early 2019 and have been working as a full time teacher since then. I have taken kids and adults alike through the ABRSM grades, introduced students to jazz improvisation, and have also worked with professional musicians to help them expand their knowledge of harmony and theory.
I hold an up-to-date enhanced child workforce DBS check.
