Teaching

I’m a flute and saxophone teacher, and have been teaching pupils for over 25 years.

I have a wealth of experience in helping my pupils through graded music exams with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music up to Grade 8 practical and Grade 5 theory, but am also quite happy to teach people who just want to play for fun.  Any age are welcome as it’s never too late to learn an instrument.

I love music, and aim to give my pupils a wide selection of music to enjoy and master.
I believe it is possible to teach people just as much from Beyonce as from Bach and there is a chance that some might enjoy it more and hence practice that bit more often too!

Pupils are taught in a friendly, fun and supportive way, designed to challenge and encourage each pupil to develop as a musician as well as to have an enjoyable time. I enter pupils for exams three times a year, and there is never any pressure to take exams until they feel ready and happy to do so.

I work through term time and through school holidays (except when I am away), and I charge £12 for a half hour lesson which is paid weekly.  If you do need to cancel any week, I do not charge for this as long as I have been told before the lesson.
