Personal Description:

I have been exposed to a large variety of music.
While studying A-level Music at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College, I become more switched on to Jazz, due to the inspiring teachings of American Trumpet player David Place.

From there I decided to further my study with London Saxophone veteran Dave O’Higgins, taking the form of a three year BMus Degree at LCCM.

After Graduating in 2017 I have been working Professionally, namely with the Aurora Orchestra, spending the first half of 2018 performing on P&O Cruises.

Currently I am enrolled in the Jazz Masters program at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching privately over the last several years and furthermore enjoy immensely the process of passing on sound advice.

By attending numerous music workshops and summer schools with The National Jazz Youth Orchestra, Kiniteca Bloco, Grand Union Youth Orchestra and JMI’s KlezFest, I have gained valuable insights into teaching practice in many different contexts.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a practical teacher and therefore aim to get you playing as much as possible.
I understand if you’re inclined towards the structure of grades and can accordingly gear lessons towards that (preferred syllabus Trinity Jazz). On the other hand I cad provide materials for us to work through in a variety of styles including: Jazz, Latin (Salsa and Bossa Nova), South African Township, Klezmer and Funk.
Developing your Ear, Technique, Reading, Improvisation and ensemble skills are all fundamental to my teaching.
