Personal Description:

I am a saxophone and clarinet teacher, performer and composer. I have been playing saxophone for over 25 years.

I graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2005 with 1st Class Honours and the Silver Medal award.

“The sounds of great alto saxophonists like Ornette Coleman, Charlie Parker, Steve Coleman and Lee Konitz are sometimes suggested in ’s serpentine lines and persuasive use of tonality and space. The leader's serpentine melodic fluency, improv resourcefulness and controlled freedom with pitch all confirm that the early accolades he has received were well deserved… ” - John Fordham (The Guardian)

“The talented young altoist has the kind of self-assured confidence of an emerging star, but the good sense to simply play how he wants to play. While the harmonies are angular and the rhythms fractured, ’s flawless technique and witty ideas make him one to watch.” - Jazzwise Magazine

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 10 years teaching experience with both adults and children in one-to-one lessons and groups, both from home, in independent schools and the music county music service.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are enjoyable, relaxed and structured to help you develop your playing to the best of your ability. I also tailor the approach and content to suit your personality, age and skill level.

I focus on building a strong foundation with the following core areas: melody, harmony, rhythm, memorisation, tone, theory, aural training, technique, posture, improvisation, building repertoire, reading, notation, creativity, musicality and self expression.

If required: ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall Jazz and Classical Performance Exams Grades 1-8, Diploma, other auditions and ABRSM Theory exams

If you are a complete beginner I have a student model Yamaha saxophone you can use during the first trial lesson. I can advise you on the most suitable equipment you will need.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
