“"now singing, now speaking, now caressing, now screaming, now smouldering, now dancing, now whispering… truly a performance to remember from a clarinettist to watch… " John Hawks, The Times and Leisure Magazine
Since graduating from the Royal Academy of Music in 1996, Stuart has been teaching privately and within schools. From the age of 8 to, well, a more mature age!
He taught at Bedford School for a number of years, and moved on to Malorees Junior School where he has held the position of clarinet and saxophone tutor for 11 years.
I feel my wide and varied musical performing experience is a good platform for me to approach and inspire students accordingly. I am young at heart, and i would like to think this feeds through in my teaching practice, especially to keep the lessons fun and appealing for younger students. A good rapport is crucial. I teach in a relaxed manner, but with always a focus to get the most out of my students, whether they are learning for pure pleasure, or working towards exams or concerts.
