Richard - Johnstone - Saxophone

Methodology

Hi. I'm Richard Mulhearn, musician and teacher. I hope my enthusiasm for performing is passed onto anyone that I have the pleasure to teach.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach saxophone, clarinet , flute and music theory. I prepare students for Associated Board exams where required and I also teach jazz, blues and rock/pop etc.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Diploma in Jazz/Light Music Diploma abrsm (DipABRSM) Saxophone Grade 8 ABRSM Clarinet Grade 8 ABRSM Flute Grade 8 ABRSM Music Theory
B.A. Hons in Modern Languages (French & Spanish).

- How much do you charge?

Instrumental and Theory music lessons are £40 per hour, £30 per 40 mins, £20 per 30 mins.

- Where do you teach?

I teach in my students' homes and I also hold lessons at my home if it is too far to travel. I'm willing to travel roughly 25 miles from my home. The area I cover includes Renfrewshire i.e. Paisley, Houston, Bridge of Weir, Kilmacolm, Johnstone and parts of Glasgow.

- When are you available?

I'm available daytime and evenings during the week and daytime at the weekend. I can also teach throughout the school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach adults of any age and children from 10 years upwards.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Grades 1-8 Associated Board and Diploma.
Trinity Guidhall Grades 1-8 and Diploma.
Standard, Higher & Advanced Highers

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Don't be afraid if you're a beginner. I'm very approachable and treat everyone as an individual. Playing music is of course beneficial to children's development but also equally worthwhile for adults as an escape from stressful jobs and busy routines. I look forward to hearing from you, Richard.

I've been teaching for 30 years both in schools and privately. I've been performing for nearly 35 years.

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

Yes.

I studied at Sandown College of Performing Arts.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students are of various ages (10- 87!). Some of them like to do exams and others simply enjoy playing for pleasure. I encourage them to join music groups and do informal concerts, which many of them do. There are those who prefer classical and those who like jazz, blues and popular material.

As a 51 year old mature student, I was a bit apprehensive about learning to play with no musical experience whatsoever. I need not have worried as Richard has made the learning experience enjoyable and fun as well as constructive. He has a very calm and kind manner and I love his teaching method as I never feel pressurised or embarrassed to make mistakes or ask questions. I would highly recommend Richard to any budding saxophonists, young or old alike, you won't regret it!”

“ Richard has taught my teenage son saxophone for about 3 years and in that time he has given him a perfect comination of the formal requirements he needed to pass his exams well alongside the skills and musicality he needed to play the sort of music he loves - ska, reggae, jazz and classic pop and rock sax solos. My son has always looked forward to his lessons and I would recommend him to help any young or not so young aspiring musician ! “

H
Harry

Richard is very patient, calm and makes lessons fun. Highly recommended !

M
Marie

“Richard understands the challenges of learning the clarinet from scratch especially for the mature student. He is relaxed, patient, encouraging and observant of the details that matter.”

D
David

As a saxophone teacher, Richard has boundless patience and an encyclopaedic knowledge of jazz. And his own skill as a player is an inspiration.
