My teaching methodology is individual to each student. EVERY lesson is tailored to that particular students needs. I have taught people aged 6-74, with complex learning difficulties such as autism and dyslexia. I get the best out of every student by being approachable, down to Earth, open-minded and having detailed knowledge in the fields I teach.
I am a composer and conductor who has taught music theory and Jazz saxophone since I was 16, after gaining my grade 8 in music theory. I am a recorded composer who's works have been played in Liverpool, Manchester, Belgium and Ireland. I have have 3 of my pieces published on Spotify under the name Adam B Letman.
My students have gone on to study composition at the Birmingham Conservatoire and musicology at Manchester University.
I studied with the acclaimed Liverpool composer Professor Stephen Pratt, as well as Professors Camden Reeves, Stephen Davismoon and Dr Richard Whalley.
I am also an active performer in the Liverpool-based Jazz ensemble 'Sweet Beans' who recently played the International Jazz Festival in Liverpool 2020.

Incredible lessons, friendly approach, and patient when needed. Overall a great service and offers a broad range of knowledge. Not only patient with me, but also with my 5-year-old niece - so perfect for all ages! 5/5
Inspiring and very knowledgable and at the same time supportive with an abundance of patience. There is not much more you can ask from a teacher . As a mature beginner on sax I’ve been having lessons for nearly a year and have progressed well beyond expectations. It’s also been great fun -no hesitation in recommending Adam
