Personal Message
Learning to Play Saxophone in Groups, is not only fun but very sociable and a great way to make new friends.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
Adult Saxophone Groups and one to one tuition
Tell me about your qualifications.
Studied atTrinity Guildhall College Exams.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for over 14 years, and in the last 13 years have successfully been running Adult Saxophone Courses.
How much do you charge?
The Course fees are kept as low as possible, as I understand most people have families and sometimes it is hard to find extra money without having to feel guilty about spending it on yourself. The courses last a year and for ease payment is made 4 weekly.... £56 every 4 weeks by standing order... you may pay as you go but the cost of each lessons will be £15.00
You may also choose to do 1 to 1 lessons, and these are £15.00 per half hour, again payable 4 in advance.
Where do you teach?
I teach the Adult Saxophone Groups in Havant and Hayling island Portsmouth, as well as one to one tuition from age 9+ in Saxophone (as long as you can hold the sax!)

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Tell me about some of your current students.
At least 70% of my students are retired and are following their lifetime dream to play the saxophone!
Do you have a personal message for students?
Its very lonely learning an instrument by yourself and having to find the time to practice. I have found that, since running the adult courses, that the students like the group socialising as much as the playing, and many of my students go round each others houses to practice. We often go out and watch other players perform... Learning takes place in a fun, social atmosphere and I endeavour to get all my students to play in a small performance.
