Ms Laura Porter

MA Music (Open)
BMus (Hons.) RWCMD
ABRSM Dip. Teaching (clar.)
Instruments: Clarinet
Bass clarinet
Genre/Style(s): *At present I do not have space for new students. Please feel free to contact me about going on my waiting list, although I cannot give any time frame for when lessons might start*

Lessons can be either just for fun or focused on passing graded exams (though exams can be fun too, of course!) Exam preparation usually follows the syllabus of the ABRSM. All of my students are encouraged to become involved with group music making in addition to their one-to-one lessons - whether that be through their school, local music service, community groups or with friends and family.

From January 2016 all lessons will take place at St. Gregory the Great, Church of England, Filton Road, BS7 0PD.

More information can be found on my website.
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced
Memberships: (verified) Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM)


I usually advise waiting until the age of about ten before starting lessons on the clarinet and saxophone as these instruments are relatively large and heavy. A free-of-charge consultation lesson is advised before committing to regular lessons. By prior negotiation, for a student's very first lesson (and only for the very first lesson) I will provide an instrument for a complete beginner to try out, so that we may accurately assess whether the instrument is going to be manageable.
