For people wishing to learn to play the sax in the Manchester and Cheshire area, I can offer tuition in technique, reading, theory and improvisation.
I have played many styles of music professionally, so whatever the student’s tastes, I will be able to give them a solid grounding, whether they wish to play with other musicians or purely for personal enjoyment. I can also tutor for grade exams.
Beginners are very welcome, please don’t worry if you have no previous knowledge of music, lessons will proceed at your pace with no pressure.
For students of other melody instruments, I am able to offer lessons in Jazz improvisation providing there is a reasonable level of technical ability and some knowledge of scales.
New! In response to requests from students I have recorded some playalong tracks which enable a musician to play fours with a teacher and improve their improvisation skills. Aimed at beginner and intermediate level players, there are four 12 bar blues tracks in easy keys and the standards Summertime, Autumn Leaves, St Thomas, two versions of Blue Bossa and Watermelon Man all recorded with gaps for the student to play an improvised response to the teacher's line. If you would like to purchase these tracks, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a transfer of £10 and you will receive a Dropbox link to download the files
I can also offer online lessons via Facetime or Skype to students in other areas. Watch the video opposite to find out more.
