Lessons are bespoke in that they are built around you, are fun, and structured in a way that important building blocks of becoming a good musician and saxophone player are integrated without the fun aspect being taken away. Whether you want to do this for your own enjoyment, or yearn to get out there and join a band, it’s never too early or late to start learning to play the saxophone!

Lessons can include subject areas such as improving technique, creating a great sound, sight-reading skills, improvisation, and playing in various styles such as jazz, classical, pop, funk, blues.

Lessons are in a comfortable purpose built sound proofed music studio recently finished complete with air conditioning / heating, located in Southbourne, BH6.

Wanting to take the graded exams?

I can help you work through the ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall exam syllabus. I have a 100% pass rate. These can be an excellent way of keeping you focused on practice, as well as that amazing sense of achievement when you receive your certificate. I can discuss with you whether participating in the graded exams is for you!

Can you help advise me which equipment I should buy & use?

Yes! I have a lot of experience in understanding and advising on questions such as “Which saxophone should I buy?” or “Which mouthpiece should I use?”. There are so many options to choose from these days, and it is critical to get this right from an early stage. The equipment should not get in the way of your development, and without the correct advice it often does.

Knowing which saxophone, mouthpiece, reed and ligature to buy can be bewildering. I will help you make the right choices based on your personal circumstances.

Do you do home visits?

Yes, lessons can be done in the comfort of your own home. Contact me to discuss rates which depend on where you live. I teach saxophone lessons in Bournemouth, Poole and surrounding areas.
