Keith Thomas, Managing Director

Brendan is one of the world’s best young, up and coming jazz players. Brendan’s sensual style and clear mastery of the saxophone may put him on a par in years to come along with his great heroes and influences – Lester Young, Charlie Parker and Coleman Hawkins to name but a few…one of the biggest jazz talents of this generation.

Brendan has been very intuitive whilst working with our brief. Given the tight deadlines and the demanding nature of TV productions, Brendan has done an excellent job of composing original music and sound bites, completely befitting the look and feel of our programme.

Our wedding was perfect, thanks largely to the input of Brendan into our day. Not only did he mastermind some really cool aspects of our wedding, his musical genius was amazing plus he managed the smooth running of all musical elements. His skills and presence are world class and his personality and ideas frankly rock.

The people of New Zealand are still talking about him and will be for a very long time!!

Thanks again Brendan!! Xx

Just a little note to say a huge thank you. James and I have finally had time to ourselves to reflect on our amazing day and evening. You were such a big part in our day and you absolutely excelled yourself. It was so kind of you to go that extra mile to help me make the day superb.

From the time you started to the very last long we had guests and family coming up to James and I saying how incredible you were and how much they were enjoying listening to your amazing talent.

We can't thank you enough - you made it so lovely and so many amazing memories.

Alex Ingram, Director

We first used Brendan about two years ago, ever since then he has been our go to sax-man! He’s an incredible player, adapts to any genre and has an amazing talent to improvise over any track. We find that using live sax as part of our DJ sets adds a huge amount of energy to the dance floor and a live feel that can never be replicated by a recorded song. The real reason we love Brendan though is he creates a great visual too, playing amongst the crowd on a dance floor, walking in-between tables creating a rapport with guests at a sit down or strutting his stuff on stage. Excellent musician, total professional and a real showman!

Searching for the right Saxophone teacher is far from easy; many teachers get bogged down in the theory of music early on, stifling enthusiasm and making the learning process dull. It is perhaps unsurprising that so many give up in these early stages; frustrated by slow progress and disillusioned that the dream was unattainable. After I experienced this approach first hand, I sought out Brendan; determined that there must be a better way.

Brendan’s approach to teaching the Saxophone is a breath of fresh air; he strikes a superb balance between teaching the technical playing skills and theory necessary to master the Saxophone; ensuring the learning process progresses fast, with precision, but is first and foremost “Fun”. His passion and enthusiasm for the instrument is infectious, and one leaves after his lessons eager to get home and practice the skills just learned. I find myself appropriately challenged, highly motivated and confident to practice what I have learned during the class on my own. Under his skilful guidance and encouragement, I have progressed quickly from being a complete beginner, to playing sections of Pop, Jazz and Blues that would have seemed far out of reach only a few weeks ago. I eagerly look forward to each new lesson, assured in the knowledge that I will come away with a step-change in playing skills and the excitement of something new to master before the next lesson. For these reasons I would not hesitate to recommend Brendan to anyone wanting to learn the Saxophone, or who is dissatisfied with their current progress. One lesson is all you will need to appreciate what learning the Saxophone should feel like!

Brendan Mills - WOW what a teacher!! He makes learning an instrument fun and easy to understand. I am 48 years old and have always wanted to learn to play saxophone. I thought I would finally give it a try but was expecting a music teacher to be a bit harsh and stuffy, but Brendan was excellent.

He is to be able to give real confidence and motivation to learn. Thanks to Brendan I am really enjoying my lessons and I am improving really quickly.

Private Birthday Party

Our son James is one of the most demanding and unforgiving clients you could ever expect to have, despite being but a teenager. He wanted a saxophonist for his Birthday Party and we were secretly feeling sorry for the musician who had to come along and endure our son’s wild requests and demands.

In steps Brendan Mills, who not only delivered hours of beautiful and melodic saxophone – but who also placated our son with some impromptu lessons and even played some of his favourite TV themes on his saxophone! Not since he became a teenager have we seen James enjoy himself so much. ALL of the credit goes to Brendan, an absolutely dream to work with and to date the best live musician I've ever has the pleasure to see.

Until 18 months ago I had never picked up any musical instrument and could not read one note of music. Thanks to Brendan I gave a performance on the sax recently to over 400 (at a prize giving evening) and received a standing ovation!

As a Headteacher in an Inner London school I work with a lot of teachers and have got to know what makes a good teacher. Brendan is not good ... he is outstanding.

The ingredients of an outstanding teacher are: subject knowledge, enthusiasm and high expectations. Brendan has all of these and more. Each lesson is well-structured and I make a lot of progress. They are also a great deal of fun.

I have chosen to learn to read music and we switch between classical, jazz, pop and other forms that I’d never heard of.

I fully recommend Brendan as a great teacher and a great talent.

Private Wedding

Our wedding was at the amazing Aynhoe Park House which is well known for its crazy parties and one of our main aims for the day was for it to be one big party and celebration, music is super important to us and was always going to play a huge part in creating the atmosphere that we were after...this is where Brendan came in!

Having a live Saxophone player on the day was on our must have list. However not the typical jazz sax player, it needed to be more current and Brendan does this best! He simply made the day and was the most talked about part of our day... i think he out shined my dress even! There were different parts of the day that required completely different approaches with music and Brendan worked with us in the run up to ensure we were all on the same page. He seemed to know exactly what we wanted without us having to go into to much detail, we were conscious that we didn't want it to be too 'staged' and wanted to give Brendan as much free reign as possible to play whatever he felt was best at the time. He did this perfectly from the Ceremony, through dinner and the evening and after party (when the oldies went to bed).

The after party (1am-6am!) was where it properly kicked off (or it 'properly went in' to use a Brendan terminology!) it was amazing! His DJ-ing skills are some of the best we have seen and him playing the Sax while mixing it up on the decks until 6am was just incredible!

We are already trying to work out when we can have another massive party just so we can invite Brendan! 1 year anniversary maybe...?

Your talent is beyond us.  The thank you cards continue to flood through the door and almost ALL comment on how brilliant and unique your music was!  You really made it very special for us, we loved how you interacted with everyone on the dance floor and got the party going until the very end.  Thank you so much for grabbing your guitar and signing these last few songs for us on the steps.  It is moments like that which formed our magical day and will be treasured memories for years to come.

I have found Brendan to be an excellent, positive and patient non clock-watching tutor, with a good eye for detail; he is very adaptable with lessons and has kept my interest and enjoyment in playing very high. I feel I am progressing further and faster than I had with other tutors. It’s nice to have a tutor who can do gigs in known establishments, I feel it adds credibility to what he is teaching. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brendan to my associates & friends.

Brendan has been teaching our son Philippe for about 2 ½ years now. During that time Phil has improved his playing to a large degree, passing his grade 2 exam about a year ago and recently being invited to join his school band.

Phil always looks forward to his lessons and Brendan, whilst always maintaining firm in his direction (often necessary with our Phil), never forgets that playing music should be above all, an entertaining past-time.

Brendan Mills was recommended to us by a mutual acquaintance, when we were looking for some live lobby music for our AGM. Brendan looks the part and is the part. We had our function at a large hotel in the centre of London and Brendan arrived looking crisp and prepared. He stood in the lobby of the hotel playing improvised jazz for almost 2 hours straight, not once showing any signs of losing his quality.

An outstanding musician and a fine professional. Brendan is worth every penny and will exceed your expectations of what a classical saxophone composition can achieve. It’s the relaxed and professional atmosphere that Brendan provided us that day, that I believe was key to our productive meeting.

We have used Brendan at every corporate event since and he has become a celebrity within our business. This man is an 11/10.

We handed the musical reins over to Brendan before our wedding - and he absolutely made our day. After just 30 minutes chatting about music we both like, Brendan seemed to know our tastes even better than we did. He planned a programme of music (delivered by an incredibly talented group of musicians - they all took our breath away) for our entire day - we enjoyed beautiful and moving music during our Church ceremony, followed by an afternoon of easy-listening jazz and soul, which moved seamlessly in to an impromptu garage/pop/RnB rave that saw grandparents, friends and a few curious villagers jumping and jiving in to the wee hours!

The mood was fun, funny, surprising - and most importantly, classy. People are still talking about how much fun they had on our day - and we love, love, love looking at the photos of all our friends and family having such a wonderful time. We undoubtedly owe all that to Brendan and couldn't possibly recommend him more highly.

Brendan has been teaching me for nearly two years now and every lesson has been a pleasure. Not only is Brendan a gifted musician, he is a brilliant teacher and achieves the perfect balance between encouraging and challenging. After my first month of lessons Brendan told me that I would do my first 'gig' 5 months later. I thought he was joking. As that 6 month marker approached I realised he was serious and we prepared to play a piece in an open mic jazz session with Dave Silk's brilliant band.

The fact I did it is a testament to Brendan's ability to build confidence and skill from scratch. I was 51 when I started learning and sometimes have periods when I can’t practice. When this happens we just enjoy playing duets, learn some theory or work out new pieces by ear so the lesson is never wasted. It is great to have a teacher who is fun, flexible, does not mess about when it comes to getting it right and is an inspirational performer. He gets my 5 star rating!

We just wanted to send you a brief note before we depart on our honeymoon to say a massive, massive thank you. You genuinely smashed it on Saturday! i have never seen so many people on the dance floor for so long and that Garage 30 mins was one of the highlights of my life!! Even my old man was up dancing along to a bit of KC & JoJo which was a spectacle!

The chilled out house session during the drinks reception was absolutely spot on and the singing during the meal was incredible and certainly won you a significant number of new fans (predominantly female!!).

We always knew it would be perfect and you certainly didn't let us down.

Thank you once again, and good luck finalising the plans for your big day. It is an incredible occasion and one i will certainly never forget until the day I die!!

Brendan brings a wealth of professional experience to his teaching, being at home with everything from Bach to Charlie Parker to hip-hop. He structured a programme for me after a careful assessment, and has provided masses of advice on style and technique that has helped to improve my playing beyond measure, from near-beginner to almost-grade 6 candidate.

And I have really appreciated Brendan's flexible approach. He provides direction, close tuition and guidance when required, but is no tram-line teacher: he listens and leaves space for your own ideas and will encourage you to think for yourself and to take the lead when you're ready - and is not above throwing in the odd unexpected challenge ot two! At the same
time, he is always unfailingly supportive, and his enthusiasm is a fantastic spur to progress.

Starting regular saxophone tuition with Brendan back in December 2009 turned out to be a very good move indeed, and I haven't regretted it for a minute.

Hello Brendog (we affectionately gave you this name when talking about you before the wedding and now feel it is appropriate to address you as such - just this once!).

It is we who should be thanking the two of you... you were totally awesome! Everything we could have hoped for and more!! We didn't want it to end and were sad when we had to leave.

We received endless complements from our guests and even had some say it was the best wedding they had ever been to - this we know was largely down to the great music and entertainment that you provided!! People say getting married is one of the best days of your life - without a shadow of a doubt this was true for Tom and I. We would do it all over again in an instant if we could.

We never expected live garage MC action... or the acoustic rendition of Thinking Out Loud... or the off the cuff personalised additional verse... all together priceless and truly unforgettable!

Tom spent the first part of a meeting at work today singing your praises to a colleague due to get married in London next year... she was going to check you out on YouTube so you may well be hearing from her!

Much love, the new Mr and Mrs Williams (that's going to take some getting used to!)

Brendan is the consummate professional. An absolute dream to work with! We booked him for our wedding in Kent and after a five minute chat; we both fell in love with him. This man knows his music like nobody I’ve ever met and he loves it like a child!!

Brendan played saxophone for our entrance, ceremony, first dance, speeches and then moved to the sound system to give us one of the best disco nights of our lives. There’s nothing that Brendan Mills can’t do!

Brendan is passionate about the saxophone and this comes across brilliantly in his teaching. His enthusiasm for his pupil to get the best out of the instrument and the lesson is unbounded and his enthusiasm infectious. But whilst always encouraging and positive, he teaches to a high technical standard, which must be the building block for good sax playing.

I am a beginner, but feel that I have fallen on my feet with such an outstanding teacher.

A MASSIVE thank you for being absolutely amazing at our wedding, the amount of comments I got from our guests like 'where did you find him, he's fantastic'! etc.

Personally, you blew me away, I had that vision of you walking down the steps playing and you blew that vision out of the water!!! You really were fantastic! I got a short video of it which I keep watching....amazing!!

We just want to say a massive thank you for your performance on Saturday. It was absolutely brilliant and created a fantastic atmosphere. The sax, piano, singing, dj'ing - brilliant, thank you.

We loved it all and the piano at the end was the perfect finish to an amazing day. Thank you.
