I have an enthusiasm for developing the musical ability and interests of others, and over 25 years of experience of teaching clarinet, saxophone and flute, both private in and in schools. I offer lessons either face-to-face or online.

Current students range from 8 to 80 years old (so it’s never too late to start), and I cater for all standards from complete beginners to advanced students wishing to pursue a career in music. Some students work toward grade/diploma exams, while others may just be learning to play their favourite music – the choice is yours!
School Instrumental Lessons
Clarinet – Saxophone – Flute – Recorder – Music Theory
Lessons within schools can either be for individuals or small groups, and last between 15/20 minutes for beginners to 45 minutes for the more advanced student. Costs vary depending on the length and whether they are individual or group lessons, but are based £30-£36 per hour (based on 10 lessons per term).
Instrumental Class Music Lessons
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.

Child Safe Guarding & Safe practice
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.
