« Excellent teacher for clarinet My eldest son has got clarinet lessons for more than three years and this very thoughtful teacher has inspired my son to understand music. His lesson is focused on not only technical matter, but also emphasizing good expression and developing tutee's own intonation. I am totally satisfied with his lessons. My son finished abrsm grade 8 exam with distinction and was awarded Eton Music Scholar for 2015 entry. My younger son also started to have a lesson a year ago. »

Adrian is an excellent tutor. He is professional, courteous and patient. He teaches both of my daughters (Clarinet and Recorder) and they look forward to their lesson every week. I can highly recommend him as a tutor.
