I have been teaching the clarinet, saxophone, flute and piano for over 20 years. I teach to anyone of any age and any level, specialising in complete beginners. Learning to read and understand the music, can be as difficult as the instrument itself and needs patience.


I use a variety of books to teach from depending on the students’ requirements. Often using teachers books with accompaniments and/or CDs. These are great fun to play along with at home. They also have a great range of pieces from different styles, and give the student a good all-round learning experience.


I use the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music or Trinity/Guildhall for instrumental examinations. Although, not all students wish to take the exams.


As well as my private pupils, I teach in local schools as a peripatetic. I have found that students who learn individually, progress and learn more thoroughly than those taught in groups. You get more individual attention, and problems, however minor, can get sorted out.
