About Me

About

Graduate from the BMus Jazz Course of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

Offering in-person and online lessons for all ages and abilities. Ranging from complete beginner to advanced. My lessons offer a very personal learning experience that is tailored to your tastes and needs. Learn your favourite songs or new techniques/concepts that you want to explore. I can teach all abilities from beginner to advanced, with a focus having fun exploring music. Topics can range from learning songs, instrumental technique, improvisation, music theory, song writing and composition/arrangement. We can work either from my own syllabus or towards ABRSM and Trinity graded exams.

I believe that music education must be fun and accessible to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. I love to share my years of experience with students and hope I can pass on my love for music to them. I am a saxophonist with 16 years of experience playing a wide variety of genres from jazz to pop to classical. As a gigging professional musician, I have many years of experience playing in live settings to all sizes of audiences. I place a strong emphasis on listening to music and developing your skills as an all-round musician. This includes ear-training, rhythm, instrumental technique, transcription, theory, composition, and much more!

“I’ve been playing with the Dave for years now, and on top of being a high level saxophonist skilled with both reading music and improvising, he has a deep understanding of the theory behind it and is a talented composer/arranger and an excellent band leader. On top of this, he has an infectious passion for all things creative!”
