« “Lisa has taught my son the clarinet for a year and a half now, taking him through ABRSM Grades 2 and 3, both of which he passed with distinction. She is an excellent teacher – thorough, thoughtful and conscientious, as well as warm and fun. She communicates well with us too. My son loves his lessons with her and has come on enormously. I would highly recommend her.” »

Lisa - Clarinet and Saxophone tuition for all ages and levels in South London

Methodology

Friendly and enthusiastic clarinet and alto sax teacher in South East London. My approach is tailored to each student's learning objectives - whether that's playing for fun or preparation for ABRSM exams - or maybe a bit of both! 100% pass rate.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Clarinet: Beginners to advanced
Alto sax: Beginners to advanced
Music Theory: Beginners to intermediate


- How much do you charge?

£30 for a 1 hour lesson
£25 for a 45 minute lesson
£20 for a 30 minute lesson

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home in Sydenham SE26, a five minute walk from Sydenham mainline station (Overground). If you'd rather drive, parking here is free and plentiful!

Depending on timeslot availability I also teach across South East London - Sydenham, Dulwich, Bromley, Southwark, Lambeth and Croydon, so please ask whether I might be able to come to you.

- When are you available?

Daytimes, evenings and weekends. After-school slots fill up quickly so please enquire early!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and levels welcome, from beginners to advanced. Please note though, it's helpful for young children to have their adult front teeth before beginning.

Adult returners/beginners very welcome: Are you taking up music in later life or returning to your instrument after a long break? I can help.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for the ABRSM grades, but there's no pressure to take exams if you don't want to.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

You will never regret learning an instrument! You'll only regret *not* learning one.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

30+ years' playing experience to ABRSM Grade 8 standard. A wealth of ensemble experience including Symphonic winds: (Solo Clarinet/1st Clarinet/Alto Clarinet/Bass Clarinet), Jazz Orchestra: (Clarinet/Alto Sax), Quartet: (Alto/Soprano Sax). Significant performance experience across London.

Experience teaching both children and adults, from complete beginners to ABRSM candidates.

100% pass rate - all my students entered for ABRSM exams this session achieved either merits or distinctions.

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

Yes - Enhanced Certificate

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Musician's Union
Clarinet and Saxophone Society of Great Britain

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently teach a wide variety of students on both clarinet and saxophone, with ages ranging from a young clarinet beginner of 7 to older children all the way up to those in their 70s. Some of my younger/teenaged students are entering their ABRSM exams, but I also have adult "returners" who played at school or dabbled in the past and have come back to the instruments after a break. I even have a couple who have taken up the instrument in their retirement!.

It's not all about passing exams; in between grades we work on consolidation of skills by exploring the clarinet/saxophone repertoire and for some older students who don't want to take exams, we work on whatever they like to play to improve their skills.

Lisa has changed my life. As a complete novice to saxophone and not having played music for decades, I was a bit scared of learning how to play a new instrument but Lisa was so positive and encouraging my fears were soon quashed. I love our lessons, she is very thoughtful and knows exactly the challenges I go through as I learn, and more importantly, how to overcome them! I love how she talks about music, she is the perfect mix of passion and expertise.

I took up the clarinet when I retired three years ago. Initially I was just interested in learning to play for its own sake, so lessons with my first tutor were pretty unstructured and free-wheeling. After a while, though, I found the lack of structure unsatisfying and I decided I needed the discipline of grades. That's when I found Lisa who has transformed my both my playing and my motivation. She is an excellent teacher – patient, full of experience and thorough.
