I am a Chew Valley/Bristol based Clarinet/Saxophone Player/Singer/Composer. I began playing at the age of 8 and have since gone on to perform as a soloist and in various ensembles in the Bristol/Lancaster/Huddersfield areas. I love to perform, and teaching others to achieve their full potential with their chosen instrument(s), whilst having fun, is such a joy!
Having played in various ensembles I have a wide repertoire of music through Classical, Jazz, and Contemporary genres. I also received the Huddersfield University 2014 Woodwind Prize for my performance ability and involvement at the university.
I have been taught by a number of tutors over the years: Ben Waghorn, Paul Stinchcombe, Quita Colston, John Woodhouse, Sarah Markham, and most recently Joel Purnell, and am able to incorporate elements of the way they teach with the way I found comfortable learning.
During my time at School and University I was participating in and leading ensembles, both small and large. I feel that this experience helps my ability to teach others by having a diversity in genres and learning environments.
I have been teaching for almost five years now and always incorporate an element of enjoyment in my lessons. It is a fantastic experience seeing your students progress.
Whether going through the grading system or just playing for fun, I structure lessons around the students own ability and what they want to achieve. I believe that music should be a fun and shared learning experience, where the student has just as much say as the tutor. I encourage learning to play in various genres and working with theory too should the student wish it.

I have noted a significant improvements in my playing thanks to Ed's suggestion of recording practice sessions which we also review in lesson.
Overall I would highly recommend Ed as a music teacher since since he is flexible with regards to your musical interests. Just be sure to do the exercises he sets as homework in order to fully benefit.
Would highly recommend Ed as a tutor.
