Personal Description:


I am a young and friendly professional musician working primarily in and around London.

Since graduating from the Royal Academy of Music with a Distinction in Jazz Performance, I have appeared professionally with bands including London Jazz Orchestra, Neon Orchestra, Nikki Iles Big Band, and Jazz Plus Ensemble, as well as my own groups. I have also appeared on several albums, and performed at many of the country's top music venues and festivals.

As a teacher I try to create a fun and encouraging atmposphere for all students, as I believe this is the best environment in which to progress. Lessons are tailored individually to each student and aimed at their own personal goals/requirements.

I play and teach the soprano, alto, and tenor saxophones, as well as jazz piano and theory.

Tutoring Experience:

- Woodwind Tutor at Abercorn School.
- Jazz Specialist at Brentwood School.
- MEHR Clef summer school course tutor (2019, 2020).
- Ronnie Scott's "Big Band In A Day" Workshop Leader.
- Tutor for Jazz Rehearsals London.
- NYJC "Jazz Ambassador" ; a course focused on developing the skills to teach improvised music to under-18s.
- Musical Director of Durham University Big Band (2012).

Drawing on a wealth of teaching experience, I have developed a bespoke approach both to teaching the saxophone, as well as improvisation and jazz theory.
