My Mission

High Quality

I have worked as a professional music and teacher for nearly 20 years. Performing across the UK in theatres and other venues as well as musical director for over 10 years onboard luxury cruise ships travelling the world through playing music.

I am passionate about music and music education and try to make my passion of music infectious. Through encouragement, inspiration and years of teaching experience we can tailor your learning to your your own specific goals, should it be classical repertoire, jazz or even that one piece you have always wanted to play! Most of all we play for enjoyment. I have taught in schools, colleges as well as a big advocate for adult education and life long learning specializing in working with adults either new to music or returning after many years.

My Lessons

Enjoy Playing

All of my lessons have a strong element of pulse and developing aural skills, through improvisation, ensemble playing and building confidence you will feel comfortable either playing on your own or working towards joining an ensemble.

Technique is very important, regardless of the style you want to play, technique takes the effort out of playing and allows you to fully focus on the music. I have a wide knowledge of repertoire for clarinet including classical, jazz and also New Orleans traditional jazz, I want you to experience how flexible and versatile the clarinet is.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have taught for Gloucestershire/South Gloucestershire music service for 18 years in both private, public schools and colleges.

I have several higher education colleges in Bristol where I work with A level performers and preparation for auditions to study further at university. During my time with Gloucestershire Music service I managed and developed the adult education program both teaching and conducting adult only orchestras with an emphasis on life long learning and education.

As a performer, I have toured Europe with various bands and played many stages in theatres and venues up and down the UK. Since 2006 I have worked as musical director for most of the major cruise lines, directing orchestras and arranging music. Now I am based in Bristol and building my teaching practice to be able to develop young or old musicians to experience some of the amazing opportunities that music has given me.

Advanced Players Welcome

I also welcome advanced players to take my lessons.

More About My Lessons

Importantly at all levels the focus is to enjoy music. I work well with all levels of students, Beginners will get a thorough focus on building good technique, developing your own sound together with a diverse repertoire all made fun and easily accessible.

Intermediate and advance pupils may be looking to focus on specific areas, sight reading, improvisation or maybe developing their chosen repertoire or advancing their technique. We can work together on specific goals and the best route to achieving them. Improvisation and jazz theory can be daunting and I enjoy working with advanced students developing their aural improvisational skills as well as there understanding of chords/scales and how they can allow you to develop your own creativity and explore the world of improvisation.

I have taught music theory alongside Clarinet for many year, this can either be included in each lesson or many pupils chose to take theory lessons separate with me especially those wanting to obtain their grade 5 which allows them to proceed further up the practical exams. I am registered with ABRSM and Trinity for entering music exams, these would never be compulsory but there are those students which enjoy a target and a challenge in which case I am more then happy to enter pupils for exams.
