Saxophone Lessons in London
The thrill of teaching is something I discovered many years ago and the joy I experience through it has never left me. I have had some amazing tutors throughout my musical career and being able to repay their faith and ability is something I have always wanted to do. I am lucky enough to have become one of the leading saxophonists in Kent and I’m often approached for bespoke musical tuition. I currently have around 30 students across the capital, I am a fully registered ABRSM Teacher and I have 100% pass track record. Along with saxophone tuition, I am also a trained pianist and have helped many students discover or re-discover their keyboard skills.
For more than 10 years I’ve been delivering personalised, bespoke saxophone lessons to adults in London, Kent, Maidstone and the South East. None of my students have ever failed their gradings and it’s not uncommon for me to bump into ex-students on the saxophone circuit, now playing for huge crowds and recognisable names.
Nothing gives me greater pleasure than watching my students achieve their dreams, whether that’s mastering a difficult song or performing at their first event. Watching them work hard during their lessons and hearing them practicing as I leave is an incredible feeling, and one that keeps me working as hard as they do to help them become better saxophonists.
I work closely and flexibly with my students during saxophone lessons, teaching and guiding them in whatever direction they want to move. Of course, there are principles that I stick to in order to ensure the tenets of saxophone playing are fully mastered, but beyond that I adapt to the student’s individual tastes. Do you want to be a classical saxophonist, able to impress at dinner parties? Great, I can help. Would you like to mix your saxophone with live music or DJs, and get dance floors jumping? I can help with that too.
As a saxophone teacher I have worked with hundreds of adults to master the saxophone. From early learners to late bloomers, if you can get your fingers on the keys then I can help you improve with the most romantic instrument in the world. My experience of playing at hundreds or thousands of events and weddings over the years has given me a great appreciation of every style of saxophone playing. I will work with you on a one-to-one basis, as frequently as you like, to develop the basic skills and slowly master the soft, brass keys of a saxophone.
Whether you’re a brand new saxophone player or an experienced musician looking to pick up an old hobby, I can work with you to help you master this beautiful instrument. I can speak from experience when I say that playing the saxophone successfully is one of the greatest feelings in the world, whether it’s for friends and families or for a crowd of thousands. It should come with a warning though, playing the saxophone is extremely addictive and may take over your life!
If that doesn’t scare you away, I would love to talk to you about saxophone lessons in London, Kent, Maidstone and the South East. Let’s have an informal discussion about your playing ability and what you want to achieve, and then we can go from there. Drop me a line and let’s get started.
Along with saxophone tuition, I also teach music as a subject and improvisation on a wider basis. Generally speaking, I teach in Maidstone during the week and in Bromley on the weekend. I can also travel further afield for the enthusiastic student, but this will require additional travelling costs. See my pricing model and more information on my very old (retro!) website here.
Here is what some of my most dedicated students have to say about their time with me:
