Personal Description:

Hi! I'm Jack, a performer, composer and educator based in Manchester specialising in clarinet and saxophone. I've performed with a variety of ensembles including solo features and UK/World premieres and have had compositions performed by Manchester ensembles. I am a graduate of the University of Manchester, having received a first class honours degree in Music, and now work for the Hallé orchestra's education and community programmes. I have an enhanced DBS check and am a registered chaperone with Trafford Council.

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. I also teach music theory for the ABRSM syllabus and have experience teaching GCSE and A-level composition techniques.

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 performance of a favourite song/nursery rhyme to family and friends.
Theory and Composition students will take an academic approach while still ensuring the connection with performance is strongly maintained.

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 students will benefit more from the full hour which allows us to work on technical and performance issues while learning about the pieces as well. 30 minute lessons are charged at 50% of my hourly rate.
