Private music lessons for Saxophone, Flute and Clarinet, beginner to Grade 8 from a professional musician playing in West End musicals, Orchestras and Big Bands

Methodology

The main aim is to have fun, to progress and to deepen knowledge and appreciation for music and our chosen instrument! Some people want to have fun playing for their own pleasure, others want to progress through the grade exams, others want to improve their sight-reading and ensemble playing and other students are aiming for music college entry.
I would be happy to help in all of these cases. I use both the Associated board and Trinity exam board including the jazz syllabus exams.
We would cover pieces, scales and arpeggios, sight-reading and aural/playing by ear work.
We play duets and fun pieces and any pieces of the student's choice. I will also introduce the student to players and music they might not have heard of before via CDs, concert recommendations and youtube clips.

Experience

I am a professional musician working in West End theatre, orchestras and Big Bands. I have played in West End musicals such as Legally Blonde, Dreamgirls, Phantom of the Opera, Singing in The Rain and many more. I work as a freelance player for many of the country's leading orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Concert Orchestra and also for the nation's leading big bands such as the BBC Big Band, the John Wilson Orchestra and the Syd Lawrence Orchestra. This work includes playing in a pit, in studios, on concert platforms and for radio and television broadcast
I have many years of peripatetic music teaching including 10 years as the saxophone and flute teacher at the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe and I currently teach saxophone at Northampton School for Boys in Northampton.

Claire's response

Susana is a great student! She is so enthusiastic and really progresses each week with what we are working on. I can't wait to hear her play "All of Me" on a gig in the future. :-))

Claire is very communicative in her lessons and always tries to make the lessons fun! She is very committed to her students and works hard to get them through their exams if that is the route they take.
She has a dedicated music room in her house and plenty of parking space, all the things that make lessons go smoothly.
We have known Claire for many years. Highly recommended x
