Personal Description:

I am a saxophone and music theory teacher from Donegal, Ireland, currently studying at the University of Bristol. I have been playing the saxophone for 10+ years and completed my Performance Diploma in Classical Saxophone in 2016 (DipLCM). I have extensive performance experience in orchestral, ensemble, concert band, popular music and jazz band playing.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach all saxes; soprano, alto, tenor and baritone. I have been teaching for five years, both 1-1 and group lessons. During that time I have taught a range of ages, from 8 to 60+.

I have modelled my teaching methods around my own experience in performance, examinations and auditions, as well as masterclasses from various professionals, including Kenneth Edge.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching focuses on a number of key factors which include:

1) Breathing and the control of performance anxiety – giving assistance to those students completing grades and/or performing publicly.

2) Tone and musicality.

3) A deeper understanding of the music theory underpinning the instrument and the pieces being played.

While these techniques may vary depending on the genre, I believe they are the making of any good player and performer.
