I started my career as a professional clarinettist with the senior band in the British Army and performed throughout the UK including the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall as well as doing radio and TV work and recordings. Being in a military band required being able to play different styles of music including classical, jazz and popular.

In addition to my long-standing and varied experience as a clarinettist, I have been teaching clarinet for over 40 years. I enjoy sharing my love of playing the clarinet by teaching students of all ages, from childhood beginners to someone who is taking exams at advanced level.

I believe there are some vital qualities to have as a teacher: endless patience, a love of music and being able transmit that, and the ability to establish solid technical ability so students can fully express themselves.

Classical music can be taken as a serious thing but as I've got older I've come to the conclusion that as we've only got one life (well here!) we might as well enjoy whatever we're doing, otherwise why bother!? :) I've always been an enthusiast and an encourager, and that comes out in me as a teacher.
