Teaching

I have been providing instrumental and theory lessons since 1989 and currently teach at Yateley Manor school and the City of London Freemen’s school. The instruments that I teach are; recorder, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone and jazz piano. Lessons are also given in improvisation, theory and aural. Besides the teaching, I run various ensembles including the wind band at Yateley Manor. At the Freemen’s school, I rehearse the junior wind band, a mini jazz ensemble and the senior school jazz band.

Performances for these ensembles include assemblies, concerts and other school events. The jazz band have had the honour to perform in the Lord Mayor’s parade in London a few times and also for the Lord Mayor’s Red Cross Christmas charity event in London.

I write musical arrangements for the wind bands  which are performed for the various school commitments each year.
