Lessons

Tuition in clarinet, saxophone, recorder and piano is available for students of all ages – my students range in age from five years old right through to adult learners in their 70s.  It really is never too late to learn an instrument! All abilities are catered for, from complete beginner to advanced.

I usually recommend weekly lessons of 30 minutes.  All lessons are given on a one-to-one basis in Newark, Nottinghamshire.  More advanced students often find 45 or 60 minute lessons are required to allow sufficient time to cover advanced technique and repertoire.  If you wish, we can schedule an initial consultation lesson to give us a chance to get to know each other and establish what your goals are, and from there we can arrange a regular slot for your weekly lesson.

My teaching style is relaxed and sensitive to your needs.  Lessons are always focused around the way you want to learn, whether following a graded examination system or just playing for fun.  The most important thing is that you are making progress and enjoying playing music!

Aural and theory training are a vital part of learning to play an instrument and these skills are incorporated into all lessons.

Lessons are charged at £15.00/30mins, £22.50/45mins or £30/60mins and are booked and paid for in advance, in blocks of six.

If you would like to book clarinet, saxophone, recorder or piano lessons please contact me to arrange your first lesson today.
