I have thirty years of experience as a performing artist and instrumental tutor at a high professional level. I am happy teaching students of any age and ability having worked extensively in primary and secondary schools, universities and music colleges including the Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall school of music.

During all his lessons Steve has a lovely calm manner, shows patience and always manages to maintain a sense of humour.. Steve is an excellent music teacher, he is hugely knowledgeable and all the children look forward to his lessons. (Sarah Evans, Headteacher at Doddiscombsleigh Primary School)

Steve Buckley is a highly respected musician and educator who has been an inspirational figure on the British Jazz Scene for nearly thirty years. I have been fortunate to have performed alongside him on numerous occasions. He has vast experience of leading music workshops for all ages and ability ranges, and covers a wide range of musical genres, with specific expertise in jazz and world music. (Martin Hathaway, Head of Jazz Studies, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London)

He has fulfilled a few different roles over the years for us at the Royal Academy and has always been an outstanding educator, he establishes excellent working relationships with the students and manages to inspire them far beyond the amount of contact time he actually has with them (Nick Smart, Head of Jazz Studies, Royal Academy of Music, London)

I am delighted to write in support of Steven Buckley as a most gifted instrumental teacher and performer. I have been aware of his work as an international performer for many years, but more recently I have observed his work as a tutor of clarinet and saxophone. The unusual skill Steve possesses is that of being equally able to teach at the highest level but also to beginners of all ages, whether their enthusiasm be towards the classical repertoire or jazz; as individual students or in an ensemble situation. His empathy and sensitivity, his imaginative approach along with a clear sense of structure is the hallmark of a great teacher. (Phil Hull, Head of Music, Plymouth University} .
