Professional Jazz Saxophonist offering creative and informative lessons in Cardiff and online.

Methodology

I teach pupils of all levels, from beginner to professional level, tailoring each lesson plan to the individual. With a focus on sound production, technique, knowledge and creativity, I always look to help improve your confidence in your abilities just as much as developing you as a musician.

I want you to be the most confident musician you can be. Driving to learn more and enjoy every moment.

Experience

I am a professional saxophonist, educator and promoter, who has been performing and teaching for the last 10 years. I love to create music, perform it to the highest level that I can and pass my experiences onto my pupils.

I have taught over 200 private pupils, with a 100% pass rate on exams. I perform regularly in numerous bands ranging from jazz to pop, disco, reggae and many other one-off events.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for online lessons : £30/h

Details

My rates vary depending on the age of the pupil and length of lesson.

I offer 30 minute lessons to under 10's and the option of 40 min lessons to under 18's. All prices are subject to change depending on travel or not.
