I’m a professional saxophonist/pianist based in Surrey, with many years of experience playing different genres of music: jazz, blues, soul and classical. I’ve played from cruise ships and performing at various jazz/blues clubs in Europe, to the famous Ronnie Scotts jazz club and live broadcasts for the BBC. As well as this I’m an experienced musical educator with a large student base ranging from top private schools to music colleges and private students.
I have been teaching professionally for the last seventeen years in establishments ranging from top private schools and music colleges to a large private student nucleus. I take my students through musical grades if they so desire and use The Guildhall and The Royal Academy of Music syllabus.
Throughout my teaching career I have been driven to help my students achieve their very best. I strongly believe that music has the power to change lives - to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people. You will find me a very relaxed and engaging person with excellent communication skills.
My overall philosophy of teaching is simple - I hope to make the students that I interact with somehow richer from their experience with me. You can read some testimonials here of some present students that I am presently teaching.
If you are looking for live background music ranging from solo, duo, trio, quartet etc performed by top professional musicans for your special occasion whether it be a Birthday, Anniversary or a Wedding, musician I will be the perfect accompaniment. I can cater from reception/background music to a full swinging big band performing the classics of Frank Sinatra to the present day.
