I have taught privately in Birmingham since graduating from Conservatoire.

I have a breadth of musical education experience to draw on which means I can tailor lessons to an individuals interests or learning objectives, as well as assessing areas for improvement and development.

I have played gigs around Birmingham as a freelance musician in various settings, including in the saxophone sections of big bands, accompanying children as part of a Christmas concert, a madness tribute band and playing in a live band to accompany a cinema screening of a film, amongst other engagements. My own quartet was described by the world renowned saxophonist Mark Turner as 'super killing' during a masterclass at Birmingham Conservatoire.
