I am a saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano tutor working in and around Birmingham. As a graduate from the Birmingham Conservatoire I have lots of performing experience.
I am currently working as a freelance musician and teacher based in Moseley, Birmingham.
I direct a community jazz band called the 'Notebenders' in Ladywood, Birmingham. The band is very diverse so I have experience teaching a wide range of ages (from 11 upwards). We rehearse every friday and we perform at the Symphony Hall Foyer in Birmingham once a month.
I also teach students on a private one-to-one basis which currently includes 4 young students (aged 7 - 13) and several adults. I have gained valuable experience teaching younger children and teaching adult beginners.
In the first few lessons I find out what the student (or parent) wants to gain from the lessons. Typically this mean progressing through the grades or perhaps they have a particular skill they want to develop e.g. jazz improvisation or blues. I am a flexible teacher with a good knowledge of the grade system and I am passionate about teaching so no matter what you want to learn I will help you improve.
