Personal Message
When teaching, I like to create a friendly yet productive atmosphere where the pupils can learn at their own rate but also be challenged in a suitable way. I encourage musicality and creativity in lessons, whatever genre, to build a love for playing.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Classical Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet and Piano. Saxophone to Advanced. Flute, Clarinet and Piano - Beginner to intermediate. I also teach Jazz Saxophone, Flute and Piano to an Advanced Level.
Tell me about your qualifications.
A couple of years ago I graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with a 1st class Bachelor of Music (Hons) where I studied woodwind. I also learn Piano and a secondary study at the Academy. I have completed all musical grades on the saxophone and have had a lot of experience playing and teaching woodwind and piano.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have done many concerts in England and abroad using Sax, Flute and Piano. I have also taught pupils of many different ages for the last few years across England, Europe and Africa.
How much do you charge?
I charge £36 an hour or £28 for 45minutes + transport if the lesson is a large distance away. Group lessons will vary from £20 depending on the amount of pupils. Can do 30 minutes if travel isn't too far.
Where do you teach?
I am happy to teach in anywhere around the Cambridge area and will travel to student's home.
When are you available?
I understand that with constantly changing school activities and extra curricular activities sticking to one time a week can be challenging. So I am happy to be very flexible with times for lessons. Also if you prefer a regular slot, that is also fine.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am happy to teach any age. I teach pupils at the moment ranging from age 3 to 70.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Classical Grades and Qualifications varying on the instrument. I also prepare students for Jazz grades through ABRSM and Trinity. I would gladly teach rock school as well.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, I have an up to date DBS certificate
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can organize Skype lessons with a student if they're more advanced.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I belong to Incorporated Society of Music as well as the Musicians Union
Where and with whom did you train?
I Recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with 1st Class Honours. I have also received lessons from Trinity College of Music (London). I studied with teachers such as Julian Siegel, Iain Ballamy, Stan Sulzman and Gareth Lockrane.
Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students are a broad mix of ages and levels from beginning adults to highly skilled children. They are all very different people with different personalities so I try to change my teaching to suit their individual needs for example, if the pupil has had a particularly hard day then we can work in a different way so they don't become too tired.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I believe that students should alway find time to have fun and be creative on their instruments as well as doing their designated practice. I believe if you have fun with your instrument you are more likely to enjoy practice and feel more motivated to pick it up.
