I have taught class & instrumental music in a Further Education college for over 30 years at A level, Btec Level 3 and Btec Level 2. During that time, I have taught many brass instrument students up to Grade VIII. My real expertise is in the lower brass- trombone, euphonium, baritone horn & tuba but I am very happy to teach all brass instruments except for french horn.

In recent years I have taken-up the banjo specialising in Irish Tenor Banjo and Bluegrass "Scruggs" styles. I am no expert yet but I would be happy to offer lessons to beginners.

I can prepare students for performance grade exams or I can develop bespoke programs for those who wish to take other paths.

As well as teaching classical styles I have considerable expertise as a jazz trombonist. I can teach jazz improvisation to most musicians regardless of their chosen instrument. I have a very "nuts & bolts" approach where students gain a full understanding of the relationship between chords & scales. Classically trained musicians are actually at an advantage here as the traditional music theory skills acquired are so relevant- endless hours of struggling to learn scales & arpeggios for example suddenly become delightfully useful! Indeed, I regard teaching classically trained musicians of any age to improvise as a speciality of mine.

I have considerable music theory skills and give a full understanding of keys, chords, scales & transposition rather than parrot-fashion learning. The process is actually wonderfully logical and surprisingly simple to learn. I can prepare students for all theory grades.

As a highly experienced A level music lecturer, I am, of course very willing to provide tuition in the listening & composition papers. I would also be happy to support students in the preparation of GCSE music.

My wide range of music skills also includes music technology. The notation programme, Sibelius is an integral part of my daily life as a musician and I have taught students how to use Logic Pro for many years. I can provide individual tuition in these industry-standard programmes.
