Also willing to chat over Skype before commencing lessons.

- Where and with whom did you train?
I Studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama under Christian Forshaw, Mick Foster, Nick Moss and Martin Robertson from 2010-2016.
Excellent! Early days yet but like Jamie, and a good tutor, I just need to stop finding excuses not to practice more!!!
Great to teach Martin, share ideas and figure out what he wanted from learning the saxophone, and to tailor his learning style according to his aims while keeping things fun.
