Personal Description:

Nathan started learning the clarinet, aged nine, when introduced to it by his primary school headmaster. Throughout high school he had lessons with renowned clarinettist David Campbell and then joined the Purcell school as a sixth former. Between 1999 and 2003 he attended the Royal College of Music (RCM) as a Foundation Scholar. At the RCM he studied with Janet Hilton, Tim Lines, Michael Collins and Emma Johnson.

Nathan has performed at numerous venues throughout the UK including Buckingham Palace, St. James’ Piccadilly, and St Pancras Church. Since graduating from the RCM, he worked in the IT industry, culminating in ten years at Microsoft, managing a teams worldwide. Nathan has had three Microsoft technical books published by Sybex and has spoken at leading IT conferences across the UK, Europe and the USA.

Having moved out of London to Camberley in 2013, Nathan re-kindled his musical activities. He is Principal Clarinettist of the Farnborough Symphony Orchestra, has played multiple times as guest principal clarinet with the Surrey Mozart Players and for several years was a member of the Blackwater Valley Wind Quintet.

In 2018 he performed the Finzi Clarinet Concerto with the Oare String Orchestra and again in 2019 with Farnborough Symphony Orchestra. In 2020 he performed one of the earliest Baroque clarinet concertos by Molter on a D clarinet.

In 2021 Nathan moved to Hythe to setup a new business, Inspired Smart Living, providing a range of services both technical and musical in Hythe and the surrounding areas.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught a wide range of ages and stages over the last twenty five years, starting in my teens. Throughout sixth form and College I taught both privately and in schools. I've worked with children aged five through to adults and have helped students prepare for ABRSM and Trinity exams. I'm particularly keen to work with people looking to develop their playing to higher grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I look to ensure that students take enjoyment from lessons whilst ensuring that they develop the needed skills to achieve their potential. Lessons are balanced between pieces and technical work.
