« I really enjoy my lessons with Luke. Being a mature student, I especially appreciate the multi-faceted approach of his teaching methods which means I have made progress in different areas of the instrument such as scales, improvisation and reading music. Luke makes sure the pace and structure of the lessons are always suited to my individual needs and progress and enjoyment go hand in hand. He has great knowledge of the instruments he teaches and makes a lovely cup of tea. »

Luke - Brockley - Saxophone

Methodology

Having a creative outlet is an important part of life, and I believe that learning and playing music can be an enjoyable and stimulating process.
So as to ensure the best results possible, lessons are tailored to the individual needs of each student

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Saxophone and Clarinet - jazz and classical
Improvisation
Composition
Music Technology
Music Theory

- Tell me about your qualifications.

First-class honours degree in Popular Music (BMus) from Goldsmiths, University of London
Grade 8 Saxophone & Clarinet
A-Level Music
GCSE Music

Additionally I have attended INSET days provided by LEAs for which I work which have provided training in Behaviour Management and Safeguarding.

- How much do you charge?

One-to-one lessons of all ages and abilities I charge £35 per hour. £25 per half hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my home in Brockley, South-East London (SE4) where I can offer a cup of tea and we can listen to music on my sound system and play along to backing tracks so as to practice improvising over chord progressions or play along to accompaniments when studying for Grade exams which I am able to prepare students for.

- When are you available?

Weekday afternoons / evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and abilities are welcome!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students for graded examinations, however there will be no pressure applied to do exams if they aren't wanted.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning saxophone and/or clarinet can be a great experience. The way in which I teach stems from my love for music - I am passionate, enthusiastic and personal in my approach. Everyone's taste, style and sound is unique and I aim to uncover and nurture each student's individuality.
Whether you have a specific goal, or just want to get started in playing saxophone or clarinet, please drop me a line to discuss further. I also offer a free no obligation short consultation to discuss anything in person.

I really enjoy my lessons with Luke. Being a mature student, I especially appreciate the multi-faceted approach of his teaching methods which means I have made progress in different areas of the instrument such as scales, improvisation and reading music. Luke makes sure the pace and structure of the lessons are always suited to my individual needs and progress and enjoyment go hand in hand. He has great knowledge of the instruments he teaches and makes a lovely cup of tea.
