Personal Description:

I am a freelance musician and have been committed to music full-time - particularly in the jazz idiom - for the past fourteen years. Primarily a tenor saxophonist, I double on baritone, alto and soprano saxophone, Bb and bass clarinet, and flute. I attended Royal Birmingham Conservatoire reading post-graduate diploma in Jazz Performance where I also studied Music Pedagogy.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had the fantastic opportunity to work with: Services For Education - Music Service; Northumberland Music Hub; Royal Birmingham Junior Conservatoire; and Durham University. Within these roles, I have accrued ten years of teaching in a range of environments focussing on saxophone, clarinet, flute, composition, theory and piano. These include: absolute beginner to post-diploma (classical and jazz equivalent); individual, small group, whole class instrumental lessons; ages 6-21; in secular and various faith establishments. This wide variety of situations has taught me the importance of holistic tuition tailored to each individual and a need for a thorough knowledge of music that can be explained via several approaches.

Tutoring Approach:

Every pupil is unique with their own strengths and weaknesses. The wide variety of teaching situations has taught me the importance of holistic tuition tailored to each individual and a need for a thorough knowledge of music that can be explained via several approaches. In the end, music is to be played so I like to keep all my lessons enjoyable at every level of your musical journey.
