Subjects Taught


I started playing music when I was 11. My first instrument was the classical guitar. As my musical tastes changed I started playing the blues harp and formed an R&B band when I was 15. By the time I was 17 I had moved on to the saxophone, which I taught myself to play by copying the records I had. Playing by ear got me into several local bands but I realised that I could not understand what those jazz guys were doing. Eventually I decided to take lessons and learn how to read music, which led me to take a BA degree in Jazz, I was 45 when I graduated.


I have been teaching since I was about 20. Back then I couldn't read music so I taught people the way I had taught myself. Now I have been seriously studying music harmony and theory and practicle for the last 7 years. I have a BA Hons degree in jazz and have taken grade 5&6 ABRSM exams with merit.


My hobbies are teaching myself piano and transcribing my favorite soloists. I also like to read watch films and cook, but not at the same time.
