Clarinet, Saxophone, Piano and Keyboard in all styles from Classical to Jazz, Pop and Rock. I also teach Music Theory.

I have a B.A.HONS from York University and ABRSM Grade 8 Distinctions in Clarinet/ Piano & Music Theory.

For instrumental and theory tuition, my fee is £15 per half hour for an individual lesson. Shorter lessons are available on a pro rata basis.

I teach at home off Hull Road in York and also at Bootham School, off Bootham in York, North Yorkshire. I am within easy reach from Leeds, Thirsk, Harrogate, Malton and Scarborough and am even closer to outlying areas of York such as Huntington, Earswick, Haxby, Poppleton, Stamford Bridge, Stockton-on-forest, Sheriff Hutton, Wheldrake, Selby and Strensall.

I teach during the School term time but am also available for lessons during the holidays. I teach after school hours Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings. I can also teach adult students during the weekdays.

I teach from 6 years of age and there is no upper age limit. I do have retired students.
I teach from Beginner to Diploma in Clarinet and Saxophone - and from Beginner to Grade 8 in Piano, Keyboard. & Music Theory.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am happy to prepare students for exams if they so wish although this is not essential. I am familiar with the Classical and Jazz Syllabuses of both ABRSM and Trinity College.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Above all i want my students to have great fun learning an instrument and to experience the joy music-making can bring.
