About

I’ve been playing saxophone for 25 years. I have a BA hons in jazz and composition, plus 20 years experience working as a professional saxophonist and teacher. I write music and have released several albums under my own name, as well as playing on many other peoples records.  I’ve played for a huge variety of bands over the years and in doing so have picked up lots of useful tricks of the trade. I now have the pleasure of passing these on to my students.

What I / we help young people achieve

My aim as a teacher is to give a good foundation in all the necessary skills needed to become a good musician but also hopefully to inspire the student to develop the same passion for music that I have.

Good instrument technique, guidance on how to practice, sight-reading, music theory, oral training and rhythm so that students can develop a good ear, enabling them to work from recordings as well as notated music.

While I’m happy to prepare students for ABRSM and Trinity College grades I also believe that some students will make better progress with a more tailored approach.

Endorsements

“John is an excellent teacher. I have been taking lessons with him for about three months and have improved faster than at any other time in my saxophone-playing life (over 10 years). His lessons are a breath of fresh air compared to learning out of method books, with a real focus on getting deep into a tune before broadening it out and applying it to other contexts. Also a great musician and composer in his own right- it was listening to his stuff that led me to him as a teacher” AR
