Notes:

I should say that while my fees show £20 for 40 mins and £25 for 60 mins this is referring to those up to Grade 5.

Once somebody has reach Grade 5 my fee is £30 for an hour, I don't offer 40 mins at this stage because it wouldn't be long enough.

I have been teaching Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone for over 30 years and have taken my students through the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) up to Grade 8. I also accompanied most of my students on the piano for their exams.

I taught clarinet, flute and saxophone in Morrisons Academy in Crieff for seventeen years. I have taught students from age eight to seventy+. At the present most of my students are adults and seem to be enjoying exploring learning an instrument. Some of them come to me with no musical experience while others have experience with another instrument.

As we get older sometimes our bodies don't behave the way they used to making it harder to get the fingers doing what we want them to and breath capacity is not what it once was. While it can make it harder to learn these instruments it is not impossible, and is worth meeting the challenge.

I come from a classical music background but over the years have widened my experience and have started to improvise more. This comes in useful for those wishing to explore styles such as jazz or blues.

It is important that the students enjoy making music and where possible are able to play with others. I enjoy playing with a few musicians called the 'Elastic Band' to entertain other people which give us pleasure as well as those we are entertaining. I also play clarinet solos sometimes in the concerts that my choir sings in.

Students come to me as I don't have my own transport to travel.

I am a PVG Scheme member in respect of regulated work with children.
