Personal Description:

I studied Music at Oxford University and at Guildhall School of Music and have written widely about the horn and other brass instruments. My book, "The Early Horn", is published by Cambridge University Press. Some of my arrangements feature on the syllabuses of the major exam boards, from grade 1 level upwards, while others have been recorded by The London Horn Sound, The Wallace Collection and the horns of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. My reconstructions of Mozart's incomplete horn concerto movements and my editions of other music for horn have been performed and recorded by horn soloists worldwide. I am an examiner for Trinity College, London, Edexcel and for the International Baccalaureate.

Tutoring Experience:

I have thirty years' experience teaching brass as a visiting teacher in independent and state schools and privately. I have also worked as Director and Assistant Director of Music in leading independent schools. Some of my students have gone on to positions within the music profession while others have been accepted by specialist music schools. Others have played with leading youth orchestras while some simply play for fun.

Tutoring Approach:

Although my teaching is based on sound, academic principles and I encourage my students to obtain accredited qualifications, I am well aware that nobody succeeds unless they enjoy what they are doing. As such, students need clear goals and lessons need to be both progressive and fun.
