Testimonials:

‘Professionally, I’m an executive coach and know it’s easy to call yourself a coach or tutor – but what matters is whether you can do it in a way that works for clients! Marek is a gifted musician, with an easy, friendly, but very challenging approach that constantly stretches his pupil to reach standards not before dreamed of. I started with Marek as a mature student, with no saxophone experience at all and within a few lessons was playing some music by ear. He covers all areas and develops new ideas to address any difficulties, while pushing you to extend your repertoire. Lessons are stimulating and fun – and deliver significant change. I can heartily recommend Marek if you are thinking of starting, developing, or improving your saxophone playing.’

Frank Thaxton (Senior Executive Coach)

‘Marek has been teaching me to play the tenor sax for over two years now. Having had a different teacher the previous year, it is clear that Marek is in a league of his own on all levels. Technically he has an enormous wealth of knowledge and experience, just as his command of music theory never ceases to impress. Yet what distinguishes Marek from any other teacher is his ability to use all of his skills in a creative way. I’ve never had a dull lesson. Dull can happen when you’re practicing (and again, that’s your own fault!), but if ever you get bored duringa lesson, Marek picks up on it and immediately swings things around. One minute you’re stuck on a specific exercise, the next you’re learning something exciting and new. Just like that. Marek balances rigor with creative fun, setting a stable foundation for playing the sax while reminding you why you play it in the first place. In my case it’s for the love of music. Not many teachers share that passion as profoundly as Marek. You can’t teach anybody how to love playing the sax. Marek is an example of someone who does… and it’s contagious.’

Pierre Smith Khanna (student)

‘Through school and university I played the saxophone and like a lot of us as soon as the real world caught up with me my musical interest diminished and the saxophone lay untouched gathering dust. After getting over my initial nerves and deciding to re-start lessons I scanned gumtree and came across Marek . Jan 2011 we negotiated our first lesson which turned into an 18 month partnership culminating in me and Marek playing at my wedding. I can whole heartedly recommend him to anyone looking to start lessons, improve or develop a different genre e.g moving from classical to jazz, a reader of music to learning to improvise. He is extremely talented and versatile as well as puts you at ease – although I still had the fear when I hadn’t quite achieved all the practice I promised to do. His style can be suited to all age ranges and abilities – an excellent teacher!’
