Tutoring Approach:

I am able to tailor my lessons to all ages and abilities. If you are a beginner, there is a wide range of beginner books that can be used tailored to your needs as a clarinet player and the type of music you want to play.

If you already have experience of playing the clarinet, you can bring me pieces you already know or I can find pieces which suit whatever level you are working at.

Or perhaps you want to sit ABRSM exams? We can work through the syllabus to find pieces that you enjoy and will challenge you.

No matter what stage you are at, I would love to help you develop your skills!
