Personal Description:

Hi! I'm Jack, a performer and composer in Manchester specialising in clarinet and saxophone. When I'm not teaching I work for the Hallé orchestra's education and community programmes. In 2015 I graduated from the University of Manchester with a first class honours degree in Music and performed several UK premieres during my time there as well as my own compositions. I also teach music theory for the ABRSM syllabus.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a variety of teaching experience both in and outside schools in both arts and science. I have worked on education outreach programmes, particularly with projects run by the Hallé's education department. I work well with beginners as well as more advanced pupils.

I mainly teach clarinet and saxophone, though also teach composition and music theory. I also have experience with the orchestral doubles (Eb/Bass clarinets) and SATB saxophones in jazz and pop styles. Music theory will be based on the ABRSM exam syllabuses.

Tutoring Approach:

When I perform music, I go out and enjoy myself and try to share that energy and passion with my audience. My teaching is no different; I believe the best way to learn music is to enjoy it.
I work with everyone uniquely and tailor lessons to what the student enjoys most, while still striving to develop their playing to the best it can be. I find it useful to have a goal that both sides feel is realistic yet challenging, whether that is a graded exam or a live performance of their favourite nursery rhyme for parents.

I would normally suggest beginners start on a half hour lesson as playing initially can be hard work and the lesson should be as enjoyable as possible. Intermediate and advanced players will benefit more from the full hour which allows us to work on technical and performance issues while learning about the pieces as well.
