Email: [email protected]
Working within the industry for the last 8 years, I have performed with some of the UK’s leading big bands, pop, reggae and contemporary music artists as well as appearing on radio and television as a saxophonist. I have entertained audiences at some of the UK’s most prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, The Sage and Ronnie Scott’s and performed internationally at music festivals including Latitude, Southside/Hurricane (Germany), Echoes of Earth (India), Jazzablanca (Morocco) and the London Jazz Festival.
I have also composed and performed original works with my own quartet and for the Patchwork Jazz Orchestra and National Youth Jazz Orchestra.
Alongside performing and composing, I have taught saxophone, flute, and clarinet privately and in primary and secondary schools for four years and have helped lead numerous workshops on improvisation and ensemble playing in schools and music hubs around the UK.
I teach both jazz and classical styles to all age and ability ranges and tailor all lessons to suit each student’s individual goals.

Sam is a fantastic teacher. My daughter was very comfortable learning from him and he has a really nice manner. He is clearly a talented musician but adopts a very down-to-earth approach and is very suited to teaching. He teaches and provides feedback in a kind and professional way. I’d definitely recommend him, in particular to any nervous learners as he is so nice.
Sam helped my daughter pass her music GCSE with patience and unfailing enthusiasm.
I have been learning saxophone with Sam for 3 years he makes learning saxophone fun. I really enjoy our lessons and I’ve made heaps of progress. He is always finding new ways to explain and teach saxophone.
I really liked having Sam as a saxophone teacher. He is a great teacher and I learnt a lot from him. If he hadn’t taught me I think I would have given up playing but kept going to grade 7. My favourite thing about Sam is that he was so easy to talk to and never made me feel bad if I played badly. I’d really recommend him.9
Sam is a really inspiring teacher who made my clarinet lessons fun, engaging and interesting.
