My Mission

Enjoy Learning

Above all else, I want to promote positive learning in which you can really enjoy what we learn together. I realise that every student is different and has different needs and different aspects of playing that they want to work on. Because of this, I will always make a lesson plan for you that is easy to follow and is based around your needs as a learner. Learning to play the Saxophone isn't easy but I will always be willing to help you through the entire process to the best of my ability.

I welcome students of all ages and all ability level to take my lessons. As I mentioned above, everyone is different, so my teaching style can easily be adapted to students who have different skill levels or of different ages. I like to make sure we have a clear plan of where you want to go with your lessons and I like to truly understand what your goals are as a player. Above all else, enjoying learning is the most important thing. To enjoy learning usually means that you'll make really fast progress. There's nothing worse than when something feels like and effort to learn.

My Lessons

Build Confidence

I've been a musician for many years and I like to use this experience to make sure my students get the most out of their lessons. Learning an instrument for the first time can be difficult and I like to help nurture my students skills whilst helping them build confidence in their playing and even get to the point where you are comfortable performing in front of others.

I'm a really down to earth person that's easy to talk to so I like to make sure my students always know about this. Everyone starts somewhere and regardless of whether you're an experienced player or a beginner, I will help push you in the right learning direction. I like to promote positive learning, good technique, an understanding of theory, exams(If you want to take them), building your own style and also building confidence.


£25 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

My Experience as a Teacher

I’ve been a musician, ever since I picked up an old boxwood clarinet at the tender age of 6 and started playing a tune on it. I played in orchestras and wind bands, and by the time I was 14, I had passed my Grade 8 Associated Board practical exam.

When I left school, I discovered the saxophone and fell in love with the sound, so I bought one and began playing in a folk-rock band. From here on, I played in a variety of bands; jazz, funk, comedy, folk and pop – I found I liked the variety. I also passed my Grade 8 Jazz practical exam with honours in 1999. I also started playing the flute in a folk band and discovered I love playing this instrument too.

I began peripatetic teaching in schools back in 2000 and have been doing this on and off in a part-time capacity ever since and many of my pupils have passed practical and theory grade exams. I have also had many private pupils along the way. I have now started online tutoring, a new thing for me, but I have found it to be fun and effective. I am based in Suffolk, near Ipswich if anyone prefers in person.
