Saturday morning is possible but not prefered due to playing engagements.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Beginners aged 7 or above up to music college standard (Grade 8 & above).

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have a very relaxed and enjoyable approach that delivers results quickly and efficiently. I am also more than happy to be flexible so as to help nourish an honest and trusting relationship. Although there is a need to learn the basic's I am adept at doing so through other styles such as jazz and for playing in a band.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a successful freelance session player in London. Having performed and taught the horn and other brass instruments for 25 years. I have taught beginners aged 7yrs up to music students preparing for examinations & music college.
Several of my ex-pupils are now playing professionally and have never had a student fail an exam or entrance exam.
