My Mission

Fun and Engaging Lessons

I pride myself on being very versatile and passionate as a musician, I carry this passion into all of my lessons to ensure my students are having fun while learning the music they love on the Saxophone. I have a great deal of performance experience and this is something that I really love to pass onto my students. I hope that one day my students will share the passion that I have for the saxophone and music in general.

My versatility comes in handy with teaching, as i also teach piano, guitar, theory and even songwriting. I can take the skills that I've learned across these instruments and I will make sure that you enjoy the direction in which you're learning in.

My Lessons

Lessons With A Multi-Instrumentalist

I play other instruments as well and I really feel that there are a wide range of transferable skills between all of the instruments that I'm comfortable in teaching. I have great attention to detail which means I'm comfortable helping students iron out their playing and become the player they've always wanted to be. It's a long process, but one I'm absolutely delighted to help yu with.

I've taught beginners and more experienced players. I've also worked with young children alongside adult learners and I am confident I will be able to help you learn and improve your skills on the Saxophone. I offer my tuition to beginners and advanced players alike to please feel free to get in touch at any time.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am a graduate of Leeds College of Music, have a post-graduate teaching qualification and previously worked as a classroom music & music technology tutor for ages 11-18. I’ve led numerous ensembles including guitar and ukulele groups, jazz bands and choirs, and have led music workshops in primary schools.

I currently also work in the music industry as a composer and a performer and am a qualified music therapist.

I have years of experience teaching students of all ages and abilities and I tailor my approach to suit individual needs and goals. So whether you’re just getting started, dusting off your instrument after a long break or working towards a grade exam.

More About My Lessons

As well as face-to-face, I’ve been teaching online for a while, making lessons interactive and clear via multiple webcams and a virtual piano. Students love these lessons as much as face-to-face!

All ages and abilities are welcome. I believe it’s so important to tailor lessons to the learning style and music preferences of each individual. I’m incredibly versatile in the styles I teach, which include Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Folk, and Electronic.

I’ve been told I have a patient and friendly approach and always like to keep lessons fun and engaging!
