As well as teaching woodwind at the Norwich School (where I also co-direct the Senior School's Jazz Band & Saxology - an exciting new Saxophone ensemble) I offer private tuition to pupils in the City of Norwich and surrounding region of Norfolk & Suffolk.
I offer instruction on the following instruments: Alto, Tenor & Soprano Saxophones, Flute, Piccolo, Clarinet, Piano & Music Theory (in preparation for Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations). Lessons are usually 30 minutes in duration. My teaching diary is in accordance with the Norfolk County Council school term dates but I do offer occasional lesson days during holiday breaks.
I regard it a privilege to teach music and to pass on to my pupils all that I have learned & experienced from a life of study and professional musical application. Above all, it is my hope and indeed my prayer that I might assist each pupil to discover their own voice and true potential in their own musical journey.
Over the years of teaching here in Norfolk it has been highly rewarding to assist pupils on to higher musical study (at leading Music Schools & Universities) and to then witness their progression into a professional career in music, as performers and as music teachers also. Many of my pupils (if not most) play an active role within the musical life of their school and are members numerous ensembles throughout Norfolk. Some have been awarded a place at the prestigious Aldeburgh Young Musicians programme or at the Junior Royal Academy of Music and Junior Guildhall School of Music & Drama. A number of my pupils have also been awarded top prizes in various music competitions including the Norfolk Young Musician Competition.
