Saxophone and Clarinet lessons. Patient, young and enthusiastic teacher, keen to pass on a real passion for music.

Methodology

Having studied classical music, jazz and various folk traditions I am well qualified to teach a wide variety of different styles. I have experience entering student for ABSRM exams, but can also teach students to play folk and jazz repertoire where there is more focus on developing aural and memory skills.

Experience

I studied on the Jazz course at Leeds College of Music for my undergraduate degree, and recently completed an MA in Performance at the School of Oriental and African Studies(University of London), achieving a distinction.
As a musician I primarily play Folk/World Music/Jazz. However, I trained classically before attending music college and am available to take students through classical grades/repertoire if desired.
All ages and abilities are welcome, Trinity Guildhall/ ABRSM syllabus can be covered, I am also fully DBS checked. Please do not hesitate to call me on (concealed information)0 if you have any queries.
