I teach a wide range of styles and genres on the Saxophone, namely Jazz, Classical and Pop. I also teach Classical Clarinet and Flute as well as Piano (Beginner-Intermediate), Harmony, Theory, Composition, Improvisation, Transcription and Sibelius software. I provide additional tutoring for GCSE and A Level Music.

My teaching style is flexible; I allow the unique learning style of each of my students dictate how I approach specific areas of improvement. I also have much experience with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.

Experience

I have many years of experience playing in professional situations and as a saxophone teacher. I have taught Clarinet, Flute, Piano and Music Theory extensively in the last few years.
