James - Etruria and Hanley - Piano

Methodology

It doesn't matter what age you are, or what ability you do or don't have, my aim is to get you playing and excited about music. I also offer tuition in Maths.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Saxophone, Clarinet and Piano. As a jazz musician with regular gigs, my instinct is to teach with a slightly more contemporary and edgy feel. We can work within a grade structure (for example ABRSM grades 1-8), without or a mixture of the two

I teach general Jazz over any instrument - interpreting chord progressions, improvisation, tonal control etc.

I also offer tuition in Maths-based subjects - I did a Maths degree

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BSc (Hons) in Maths from Warwick University
Several Grade 8s in musical instruments.

- How much do you charge?

Standard fee is £13 for 30 mins, £24 for an hour

Book 9 hours of lessons and receive the 10th free (10% discount)

- Where do you teach?

For music, best results at my home in spacious music room (plenty of tea+coffee for accompanying parents), but flexible
Will travel - please ask for rates here - will generally reflect the time I spend travelling

Rates for group lessons can be arranged

- When are you available?

Any time!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Sax+Clarinet: Beginner to Professional
Jazz: Beginner to Professional
Piano: Beginner to Intermediate with focus on getting you to a point where you can sit and play the songs that you want to play from chords
