I teach Saxophone lessons for all ages, in all styles of playing at all levels of playing, offering exam studies from the inspiring ABRSM Jazz Grades syllabus as well as the more traditional "classical" exam grades., Jazz grades now go up to Grade 8 with the Trinity Guildhall syllabus, without the need for grade 5 theory, again this is a very thorough and well thought out syllabus., It's not all about exams however and I'm keen to teach anyone with an interest in Saxophone playing., I offer “trial” lessons during which you can come along for a “taster” lesson, designed for those without their own instrument who are interested in taking up the Saxophone, you can get started with this basic lesson based on Saxophone fundamentals blowing technique and posture. I'm happy to advise about Saxophone purchase., You are welcome to have this taster lesson with me using one of my many saxophones., , http://www.wirralsaxophonelessons.co.uk/index.html

My approach to teaching bass is to make you a well rounded player. The areas I can cover are:, , Instrumental technique - LEFT HAND (Simandl, one-finger-per-fret system, neutral position), , , RIGHT HAND (free/rest stroke, "floating thumb" and "moveable anchor", 3 & 4 finger picking (DiPiazza, Garrison), slapping/popping and tapping), , , Sight Reading, , Scales, Modes, Arpeggios, Exercises, , Music Theory, , Ear Training/Transcribing, , Feel Playing and Working with a Drummer, , Grades 1-8 (Rockschool) and more., , I can also teach more of a traditional route of learning tunes and increasing your repetoire, with an emphasis on current function/corporate band set-lists, or a list of tunes you want to learn. I can also help with tour/gig prep, as well as learning/internalising of material., , I can travel to you (within the merseyside basin), teach from my home music room or teach over Skype™. All levels/abilities and style of playing welcome.

guitar
I teach electric guitar where I cover many styles and techniques. I have a large collection of exercises that introduce the student to new styles and give them a basic understanding of them. I teach lead and rhythm guitar and also the area where they cross over. I teach my students guitar techniques they will actually find a use for., I teach from home in my studio where I have everything I need. Each lesson the student receives a set of printed notes for their "homework" aloYou do not have to read music to have lessons but if you want to I can teach you that too. My lessons involve some music theory as and when the techniques involved demand it., If a student wants to work on one particular aspect of technique or theory we can do that. No two students are the same - I tailor each lesson to the student's needs.
