Our lessons will focus on developing good playing technique while making reading music notation fun and approachable with any Saxophone! I have several music-based games and activities for learners of all ages to engage with learning the Saxophone in a fun and exciting way. I also try to use examples of your favourite kinds of music as activities within lessons alongside developing technique through selected method books. I really value the role of listening to music while learning the Saxophone, so alongside practice, I usually give some selected listenings to help you develop a greater awareness of style and musicality. Most importantly, I am entirely flexible in teaching and will work with you to create a personal learning plan to help you achieve your goals! I am available for lessons with any type of Saxophone (i.e. Soprano/Baritone)
I have been teaching Flute for eight years and have taught several students, most of whom have stayed with me for several years. My students have come to me with a wide range of abilities and from vastly different age groups. They have all achieved proficiency with the Flute, with many completing several ABRSM graded exams. I have worked a lot with adult learners who were complete beginners and similarly awakened some long-dormant skills. As a trainee primary school teacher, I am well versed in teaching children of all ages! I have completed my Masters in Music at King's College London, where I specialised in Modern and Medieval music. So, I have a wide breadth of knowledge to help inform music choices within our lessons. I love teaching and assisting students in developing. Previously, I have played the Saxophone with several big bands, from the Jazz Outlaws to the King's Big Band, with whom I have played on several recordings. Similarly, I have played the Saxophone extensively within musical theatre settings.
Jon is a very knowledgeable and friendly teacher. We have taught alongside each other for over 4 years. He will ensure you succeed in every lesson and work with you to achieve your goals making every lesson worth while.
