Information About Ben - teacher - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Ben:
I am a highly motivated saxophonist with over fourteen years' experience. I perform classical and Jazz music and enjoy playing many different genres, on an extended range of saxophones but primarily I would teach soprano, alto, and tenor. I started playing at the age of 9, then went onto be trained at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music for four years achieving grade 8 on saxophone, and grade 5 on Piano as well as Theory.
I then went on to attain a BMus (Hons) Performance Degree on saxophone from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Whilst studying I performed in many ensembles including Repco Wind band, RWCMD Woodwind Orchestra, and I have also performed with numerous function bands across the UK and was a full-time member at a semi-professional big band.
I will teach all levels of ability, and I am happy to teach any style you wish to learn, from classical to jazz, as well as working towards ABRSM or other grade exams.
I believe it is very important that learning a musical instrument should be fun, I encourage students to listen to a wide range of music and find styles of music and musicians that they can aspire to.
I am happy to teach a wide range of musical styles and I can teach theory alongside practical learning so the student can gain a more rounded understanding of music.
Lessons may vary in length, from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the needs and ability of the student.

Simon works really hard outside of lessons and listens to every bit of detail on the Saxophone with enthusiasm when I'm in a lesson with him, he makes me feel like what I'm talking about actually works!
