Relaxed and practical online music theory lessons with UK based event saxophonist

Methodology

I'm flexible with lesson times and appreciative of any requirements you may have to make sure we get the most out of every lesson. We can work towards grades, get your performance skills up to scratch or focus on music theory, and I'm more than happy to advise based on your goals. The most important thing to me is that you enjoy what you're learning, so the lesson will always be catered to what you are wanting to achieve.

Experience

I’m grateful to have studied under the wing of internationally recognised and critically acclaimed saxophonists Dave O’Higgins and Joel Purnell, widely considered as two of the UK’s leading contemporary jazz musicians and educators. I was fortunate enough to be offered education at one of the most prominent Jazz Universities in the UK, at which I developed my solo performance experience. I have since performed for audiences of up to 40,000 (supporting X Factor's Tulisa), partnered with 7 successful agencies, written and arranged music for ensembles, with my current focus on event performance and touring.

Tom is an inspiring teacher.

With a considered assessment of a student's current skills and ambitions, he steadily builds their confidence and technical understanding. Tom is able to impart an intuitive feel for playing, focusing on detailed skills when necessary, in order to develop well-rounded musicianship.

Providing clear guidance with gentle encouragement and patience, it's clear Tom derives genuine pleasure from seeing his students progress, as they find themselves able to play increasingly advanced material and apply their new-found musical capabilities.

Tom is an excellent instructor! I really enjoy learning to play sax with him. His enthusiastic and knowledge about music is just great. He has also shown great patience, taking time to get to know me whilst encouraging to keep going with my learning. He has helped me to gain confidence and love of playing sax. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone beginners and experienced musicians as he is very flexible in his teaching methods.

Having worked with Tom in a number of musical projects, I highly recommend him as a punctual and well prepared tutor, being both friendly and constructive in a professional environment. Not to mention his superb playing and his practical, crystal-clear explanations on how to control the instrument!

Having previously worked with Tom in the music industry, I know first hand that he’s a wonderful musician, professional and human! He has a clear and engaging communication style that others respond positively to, which will be well applied in a tutoring setting. I have always enjoyed working with Tom as he has a great sense of fun and enthusiasm for his art, and I’m sure his tutees will find this as well!
