teaching philosophy

A great educator will take a holistic and dynamic approach to music lessons. This is why I have spent a decade on crafting skills as a teacher, coach and trainer to ensure that my students always get the most out of their time with me.

In 'teacher mode' we'll look at music theory and technical aspects of music making. Largely instructor led, this is the bit where I get to impart all of the raw knowledge I've gained over the years from the importance of 1959 in the evolution of Jazz, the finer points of modal interchange in Pop music, through to why and when to use a synthetic saxophone reed.

In 'trainer mode' we assume the role of the classic sports personal trainer and this is where the real grafting happens. We'll cover exercises, repertoire, timing, groove, playing over backing tracks vs live bands, creating crystal clear altissimo high notes and lushious sub-tone low notes. This part is also called 'shedding' and we'll work on getting 'killer chops'.

The coaching part of the trinity of music education is my absolute favourite, as it is student led and instructor guided. This happens throughout the learning process and covers everything from setting effective goals, self evaluating progress, deciding how best to move forward and being truly accountable for your development as a musician.

what you can expect from lessons

You will be playing music that makes you want to play, and that you get the most enjoyment out of. We'll geek out on your favourite tunes and choice of reeds, and make sure your musical journey is as unique as you are.
