I am a skilled professional saxophonist, experienced instrumental tutor and jazz educator. Graduating from Leeds College of Music in 2012, I have spent a musical lifetime devoted to the pursuit of excellence in jazz performance and built a professional career that has seen me perform and educate widely in the North of England.

I have maintained a healthy roster of private students of varying ages, abilities and ambitions for the past 6 years; and have also since 2013 been the saxophone tutor at Artforms’ North Leeds Music Centre. In doing this I have, among many other things: coached students with conservatoire ambitions, introduced solid intermediate players to the richness of the jazz tradition, overseen students develop from complete beginner to confident player and helped students to pro-actively overcome performance anxieties.

I am a versatile, resourceful and creative teacher able to tailor the content of a lesson to the situation and individuals present, whether that be teaching in a mixed ability group as opposed to individuals, working with students with learning disability’s or helping students overcome physiological issues that may inhibit their saxophone playing. I have also led a number of student ensembles, encouraging individuals to make music with others, rehearsing them as a group and taking them out to perform.
