saxophone lessons...

As well as playing as much saxophone as possible, I am a pretty full-on sax teacher. I have been doing this since about 1998, and for 10 years I was a "peri" for Bath and North East Somerset - they called me Senior Music Tutor. I hope they weren't being too personal with that "senior" jibe! Right now I see lots of kids and adults for lessons, and I always welcome a call.

Some of my pupils are kids wanting exams (TrinityGuildhall, or ABRSM jazz grades), or not wanting to do exams, or wanting coaching for a GCSE or A Level, or...some just want to play saxophone.

Some of my pupils are adults, with a real variety of requirements. Folks may want to fulfill an ambition to start the sax, or want to improve for a wind band or jazz workshop or reggae orchestra,or want confidence to start blowing, and...some just want to play saxophone.

Assuming I am safe from you, I've got my CRB check, and Musicians' Union public liability insurance.

So, please feel free to get in touch, for yourself, your spouse (for a birthday/Christmas surprise), your gifted child, or whatever. Send me a mail - use the contact tab above - and if you leave a number I will call you back. Or text 07929 636 433.

Brecker was a practice fanatic, Sanborn still is. Getz spent hours just playing the tune so that he could really 'sing'. No substitute folks, it is what it is. - Posted by Pete Effamy in Linked In/Sax On The Web forum
