Highly qualified teacher with over 30 years experience gives clarinet, saxophone and music theory lessons in HARROW and NORTH LONDON for all levels. I am a leader in education and a top performer.

Methodology

I am a BMus (Hons), PGCE and LTCL with over 30 years experience as a teacher, performer and senior leader in education for Teaching, Learning and Assessment. I adopt a nurturing approach to learning as well as challenging students to make rapid progress whilst having fun. A work hard ethic is vital to establish good routines. I customize learning to the individual and use these four student categories as a starting point: Beginner: Intermediate to Advanced: Consultations for experienced players; "Never Too Old to Learn" lessons for new adults. I can be flexible in terms of when and where lessons can take place so I can come to you, or you to me or interact online if that is best. I will develop theory and aural skills in every lesson and prepare students for exams and next steps where required. Lessons can be 30 min to 1 hour depending on need.

Experience

I studied clarinet with Mark Jordan (Royal Northern College), Colin Lawson (Royal Academy) and Colin Bradbury (London Symphony Orchestra). I had much early success as a young performer reaching the final of the Festival of Music for Youth in a duet and performed Mozart's Clarinet Concerto with the County Youth Orchestra. I then progressed to much professional work including the International Festival Orchestra for the G&S Society. In addition to teaching music privately I had a successful career as a senior leader in education for many years as Head of a National Skills Academy and Director of Curriculum. I was also a features writer for the Clarinet and Saxophone Society UK on clarinet technique and published in USA and Japan.
