I have over 25 years of experience as a performer and instrumental teacher. Current students range from 8 to 80 years old, and I cater for all standards from complete beginners to advanced students wishing to pursue a career in music.
Clarinet – Saxophone – Music Theory
I currently have a limited number of vacancies for individual lessons. These take place either at my home in Calne (Wiltshire) or I if you prefer I can visit you within West Berkshire, Swindon or North Wiltshire.
Distant learning via Skype/Facetime
Clarinet – Saxophone
For students who do not live locally it may be possible to receive tuition via Skype. You will need an instrument, PC (or tablet) with microphone and speakers/headphones.
Please contact me for details of individual 30, 45 or 60 minute lesson.
Clarinet – Saxophone – Flute – Recorder – Music Theory
Lessons within schools can either be for individuals or small groups. Cost: Individual/group lessons £30-£36 per hour (based on 10 lessons per term). Instrumental class music (KS2). I have a wide experience of Key Stage 2 Whole Class Instrumental Music Lessons. These provide a valuable opportunity for pupils to develop both listen and performing skills, in an enjoyable and relaxed setting. I can provide either short courses of 10 weeks or a full year of 30 weeks. Sessions provide a structured stepping stone towards learning other woodwind instruments and can be tailor-made for your school’s requirements.
* Instruments (recorders, clarinets etc) to be provided by the school/pupils

In addition to the above, for lessons conducted via Skype the following will also apply:
My Skype account being used is solely for one-to-one teaching and lessons will not be recording.
Students should be using parent’s equipment and online lessons should take place only when a trusted adult/parent is present at home and should be in a room with an open door, ideally NOT the child’s bedroom. Students should always be dressed in daytime clothes and should treat the lesson as a formal teaching situation.
