ONLINE LESSONS AVAILABLE VIA ZOOM
Experienced and enthusiastic tutor of clarinet and saxophone teaching both children and adults in South London, and online via Zoom. I hold an ABRSM Clarinet Performance Diploma (Distinction), and with 30+ years' playing experience, I perform regularly across London and the South East on clarinet, bass clarinet and saxophone.
After many years of helping musicians of all ages and levels reach their musical ambitions, I'm happy to teach everyone and anyone who shows a desire to learn clarinet or sax, no matter what their current level. From complete beginners to more experienced players wishing to improve their technique or those preparing for exams - everyone of all ages and standards is welcome!
I have many years' experience teaching both children and adults across London, from complete beginners to advanced students up to Grade 8 level. I prepare students for ABRSM/Trinity graded examinations if desired, with a 100% pass rate - all my students who entered ABRSM exams last year passed with either merit or distinction. I have also prepared several young students for music scholarship auditions and coached GCSE music students on the practical performance element of their exams.
I have a particular interest in and experience with adult beginners/returners, and one of the most rewarding parts of my job is helping people who thought they would never be able to play an instrument to achieve their musical ambitions later in life.
Whatever you want to achieve, my lessons will help you become a well-rounded and confident musician.
My job is to help you:
- play the clarinet or saxophone to the best of your ability by giving you a solid grounding in technique
- explore and learn about the music you want to play
- learn to play different types of music
- give you the skills and confidence to play with other musicians
- have a lot of fun along the way!
Every student is different, so lessons are individually tailored to you, to ensure you reach your goals. Whether that’s the traditional graded pathway, joining a band or orchestra or simply playing for yourself - or maybe a bit of everything - is up to you! I prepare students for ABRSM/Trinity exams if required, but while they can be an excellent benchmark and a structured goal to work towards, they're by no means a compulsory part of music education and there's no pressure to take exams if you don't want to.
I teach technical ability and musicality (including notation, aural (listening) skills, sight reading and music theory) primarily through repertoire, using music from a wide variety of composers, periods and styles. This helps students to overcome technical challenges, to improve their proficiency on the instruments and to become well-rounded musicians while also having fun with the music - people learn so much better when they're enjoying the pieces they play!
All ages are welcome - I currently have students from aged 8 to 80 - and all levels are welcome, from beginners to advanced. Please note though, young children should preferably have their adult front teeth before beginning!

My daughter is quite shy and she finds opening up (particularly to adults) very difficult. Lisa is the first teacher that my daughter has really enjoyed learning with!
