My name is Sam and I have been teaching music both peripatetically and in schools for several years. I have studied performance and composition through both my masters and my degree. I have been working with a local youth band for the past four years and love getting people buzzing about the music they are playing.

I work both from home and at students homes with students as young as 5 through to adults all who work at different paces and abilities.

I teach students that want to do music for pure enjoyment/as a hobby and also for those who wish for more structure wanting to take music exams. I have students that work within the ABRSM exam system but I am happy to work with the Trinity exam board as well if that is preferred by the student.

Learning an instrument should be fun and I believe regardless of if a student pursues it further in life learning an instrument can be beneficial for all and develops many skills.

*Teaching Availability - I have lessons available on both weekdays and weekends.

**Instrument Hire - I am able to offer instrument hire for Clarinet and Saxophone. Please contact me for further details if this is something you would be interested in.
