Personal Description:

I am a composer, songwriter and performer based in Brighton, UK who has been writing music for over 15 years. Recent clients include MTV, Universal, Endemol Shine, The National Theatre and Battersea Arts Centre.

​As a live performer and recording artist I have toured the world with a variety of live acts. Recently I have been fronting David Bowie tribute show Live On Mars on lead vocals and sax as well as playing William Doyle (sax, synths and vocals) and the highly successful Classic Rock Show (vocals, sax, guitar).

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching music (primarily the saxophone) for approx. 10 years now in schools and privately. I currently teach one to one saxophone and clarinet lessons at Brighton College Prep and Senior School as well as working for West Sussex Music service. For several years now I have been directing youth jazz ensembles including West Sussex County Youth Big Band. I also coach rock band workshops for young people.

Tutoring Approach:

As a teacher I work closely with the pupil/parent to find out which areas they would like to focus on primarily. As well as working towards grades (if desired) I work a lot using improvisation and aural skills, which I find helps with classical music as well as jazz and pop etc. I aim to provide a positive learning space where pupils can feel free to learn by making mistakes and that rewards inquisitive questioning.
