James - Grangetown - Saxophone

Methodology

Hi, my name's James and I'm a freelance musician and teacher based in Cardiff. I have always had a passion for music and I love being able to pass on the broad range of what I have learned over the last 10 years.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Piano and music theory. I have a large amount of experience within classical, orchestral,creative and improvisatory music and Jazz so I can be as versatile as students want me to be.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a 2.1 B(mus) specialising in Jazz Saxophone from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama .

- How much do you charge?

I charge £14 for half an hour or £25 for an hour one on one. rates for other lessons times are negotiable. Rates for group lessons are reduced depending on the size of the group.

- Where do you teach?

I teach primarily from my home in Cathays as this is where I have all my teaching resources, however, I am happy to travel to students homes providing it is a reasonable distance.

- When are you available?

I teach weekly Tuesday to Friday afternoon and evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I tailor my lessons to the pupil individually so am happy to teach people who just want to pick up some instrumental skills casually or will also take people down the route of ASBRSM and Guildhall examinations. I am happy to teach complete beginner or those or who have a large amount of instrumental experience and knowledge and have taught students ranging from age 5 to 50.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I teach graded examinations and music theory for those who wish to take examinations. My students have a 100% pass rate at examinations!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning a musical instrument is an excellent hobby as it teaches us so much about ourselves. It is also a great way to meet people and it has been proven that it makes you more intelligent.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching privately and in group sessions/masterclasses for the past 5 years for a number of different instruments. I have been a free lance musician since moving to Cardiff 5 years ago and have performance experience, of weddings, jazz gigs, professional shows and outreach work locally and internationally. I have a number of one on one pupils that I currently tutor individually and have teaching experience of individual lessons, teaching in schools, afterschool and holiday workshops and masterclasses, ensemble coaching and jazz improvisation classes.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

Forte School of Music

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a music teacher at Forte School of Music in Cardiff.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently have students ranging from complete beginner on Clarinet and Piano to Saxophone students who I have taken through ASBRSM grades and have a large amount of proficiency on there instruments. These students now play for pleasure and come to me to learn advanced techniques.
