« After taking lessons with Mark for 6 months the improvement has surpassed expectations. His teaching style is very hands-on, tailoring lessons to your interest and skill level. He has great strength in conveying complex ideas in ways that are meaningful and easily understood. He is extremely patient and generous with time. He gives constructive criticism, but always gives encouragement and support to improve. I would highly recommend Mark as a teacher whether you are a beginner or a more advanced musician. »

Mark - Central Havant - Music

Methodology

I have more than 25 years' professional experience covering every style and genre of music. I am a specialist in adult tuition. Your first lesson is free and all lessons take place in a positive relaxed atmosphere in a dedicated teaching studio.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Saxophone (classical and jazz)
Clarinet
Classical Piano
Fundamentals of Improvisation
Music Theory

- Tell me about your qualifications.

LLCM.

- How much do you charge?

Your first lesson is a free, relaxed, no-obligation consultation to find the right place to start from, and the right way for you to progress toward realising your musical aspirations. Thereafter lessons are charged from £30 per session. I charge by the lesson, not by the hour, so if we're making good progress and having lots of fun, we can easily go to 90 minutes or more, the fee is still the same. Most students prefer to pay for a block of 10 lessons, which offers significant savings, though of course you are more than welcome to pay for each lesson individually.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from a dedicated studio at home.

- When are you available?

I am available to teach any time after 10am on any day of the week.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I specialise in adult tuition, from absolute beginner to advanced level.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

From beginner to advanced level, you will find a warm and welcoming teaching environment designed to build confidence and technique through encouragement, patience and positive feedback.

Whether you want to master Bach on the piano or swing style on the saxophone, whether you relish the thrill and excitement of playing in a band or simply enjoy playing for your own pleasure, the right approach is crucial to achieving a lifetime of rewarding music.

So get in touch and I will get back to you straight away, you have nothing to lose and a whole world of musical pleasure to gain!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

A veteran of more than 25 years' performing in high-profile professional wind bands, big bands and saxophone quartets around the world, I have amassed a wealth of experience in all genres and styles, and have a 100% success rate in preparing students for exams.

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

No.
