Professional and dedicated clarinet, saxophone and music theory teacher based in central and south-west London, with experience performing across the UK and teaching musicians of all ages and abilities.

£35 per hour or £20 per half hour.

My hours are entirely flexible. Some pupils come at a regularly time once a week or fortnight, others prefer to arrange each lesson individually to suit their timetable.

I teach all ages and levels, from absolute beginner up to post-grade 8 and university level.

I prepare students for graded music exams both with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, and with Trinity Guildhall. Many students choose not to take exams.

About Patrick

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught privately since 2010, and have taught in music centres across London since 2016. I am a consultant music tutor for the London Music Centre, and work for the Wandsworth Music Academy and Fern Hill Music Centre. My teaching work includes tutoring beginners up to post grade 8, adults and children, one-to-one and whole classrooms, teaching instrumental lessons and music theory, and coaching youth orchestras. I am employed to teach the clarinet, saxophone, flute, recorder and theory in schools, music centres and for my own private practice.

I am also busy as a performer, playing the clarinet, saxophone and flute in orchestras, chamber groups, big bands and theatre bands.

I am formally trained in performance, improvisation, composition, harmony & counterpoint, orchestration, musical theory, history, analysis & aesthetics.

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

I have an up-to-date Enhanced DBS certificate and am trained in child safeguarding to level 2.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I was taught by Tim Spencer and Kevin Banks (Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra) in Bournemouth. I then studied at Manchester University under Mark Jordan (BBC Philharmonic Orchestra) and subsequently with Tim Lines and with Les Craven, principal of the Welsh National Opera. I have played in masterclasses with Tony Pay, Paolo de Gaspari, Pascal Moragues and Robert Plane. Most recently I have studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Andrew Webster, James Burke (BBC Symphony Orchestra), Jenny McLaren (Philharmonia) and Rob Ault (ENO).

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Musicians' Union.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My youngest students are seven; my eldest are in their seventies. Some are playing for fun; some are planning to be professional musicians. Some students just enjoy playing by themselves; some love to play in bands or orchestras. Music can play a part in our lives in a great variety of ways, and I enjoy tailoring lessons to an individual student's goals.
