Notes:

I think it is really important that learning an instrument must be fun, and that pupils should play with others in ensembles and bands to get the most out of music-making (that has always been my experience). I have extensive experience of teaching and coaching all brass instruments from beginner to degree level. I teach brass in the Surrey area for Richmond Music Trust, and for Kingston Music Services.
I studied the trombone at the Royal Northern College of Music with Terry Nagle (Halle) and Roger Harvey (RPO), and privately with Denis Wick. I continue to perform as an orchestral trombonist and I am first trombone for the Wimbledon Symphony Orchestra, the Kingston Chamber Orchestra and have played first trombone for the Westminster Philharmonic Orchestra. I have a good knowledge of all the brass instruments and teach the trombone, the French horn and the trumpet.
Throughout my time as a lecturer at Kingston University I have conducted and coached the Kingston University Brass Ensemble including performances at the Barbican, the Royal Festival Hall and the Guildhall on several occasions.
I have experience of teaching younger brass pupils at Newcastle under Lyme School and privately in Manchester and Surrey this involved liaising with parents regarding the progress of their children. I have also successfully put pupils in for Associated Board Practical Examinations and can provide aural and theory tuition.
I am also a composer and have taught composition for many years at Salford and Kingston Universities.
