Information About Oliver - Southampton teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Oliver:
I am a jazz and pop Saxophonist currently studying Music BA at the University of Southampton in my 3rd year. Whilst being a passionate perfromer on both alto/tenor saxophone and keyboard, I am also an aspiring composer of modern neo-soul and pop music, running Southampton based pop group 'The Flourish'. I have studied both classical and jazz music, with a strong knowledge of jazz improvisation and harmony which I have been working on for over ten years; something I am now keen to share with new and aspiring musicains. I am first tenor saxophone in the University of Southampton Jazz Orchestra and gig regularly within the Southampton area.
My approach is focused on improving improvisatory skills on the saxophone, including jazz scales, patterns and licks, as well as learning standards and studies that enhances the students technique musically. Sound and intonation is also of great importance to a jazz/pop saxophone player of any level, so is also something I would quicky work on with students. I am a patient listener and easy going person who is willing to try different techniques to get the correct result. I will adapt all my lessons individually to my student, using a mix of books, CDs, and my own use of instruments (saxophone/keyboard) to assist the student.
