« Gary Hamilton is a very experienced saxophone player. He enjoys sharing his knowledge with me and his other students, I've been learning how to play the Tenor Saxophone and have come a long way in 6 months when back then, I didn't even know how to pick one up. I highly recommend learning how to play the saxophone with him, he also helps you with the finding a Saxophone that is good quality and that is affordable for you in person. 28-02-2014 »

Gary is passionate about the saxophone and he shares that passion enthusiastically with his pupils. His style of teaching is refreshing and varied and a complete learning experience. >From lesson one he covers all aspects of learning to play the instrument including theory to underpin the performance opportunity which he provides with backing tracks and his accompaniment. This all helps to build a student's confidence from the outset. Lessons are never dull.
