Kate - Todmorden - Saxophone

Methodology

Friendly lessons!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Saxophone, Jazz Theory and Improvisation. I also teach piano, mainly jazz but also classical.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Diploma in Music from University College Salford, a BA Hons in Performing Arts (Music) from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, Grade 8 Piano and Grade 8 Music Theory.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £24 per hour, £16 per 40 minute lesson and £12 per half hour (usually for children).

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Cornholme, Todmorden.

- When are you available?

Please get in touch to find out - I will always try and accommodate.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Total beginners to advanced players, all ages welcome. I enjoy teaching all levels. I have a classical training on the piano and accompany both classical and jazz. I have experience of performing these genres, plus folk and blues. I have taught reggae/ska amongst many other genres and often transcribe and teach from recordings that students wish to bring in.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM Jazz exams sax and piano, ABRSM Classical piano.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I aim for a relaxed atmosphere and mainly teach adults but am happy to teach younger students. I spend time tailoring lessons for each individual pupil, based on their musical aims. I also try and find opportunities for people to get playing with other people and having fun making music. As I am a pianist you get a high level of accompaniment for learning improvisation, and the interaction with the other pupils at workshops increases learning and enjoyment. People have busy lives nowadays and I understand that everyone wants different things from learning a new instrument. I think adults appreciate that,and I can reassure you it is nothing like learning at school!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I worked for many years upon graduating as a freelance jazz saxophonist. I now play jazz piano and have been a singer/saxophonist in a signed band. I produce music in my home studio and can produce cds of students performing which is a very beneficial learning experience.

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

I have had them in the past but have not found much need for them. Parents are welcome to stay in the lounge as I teach, and they can see and hear all that is happening.
