I specialise teaching children clarinet from 7yrs and adults who wish to learn clarinet either as a hobby or to become strong amateur musicians. My main aim is to invoke genuine enthusiasm and interest in students' learning with the view that it is up to the individual whether they take graded examinations. I endorse that a parent/parents attend their child's lessons. I teach in groups as well as 1-1, so if finance is a concern, the fee can be divided between the number of students attending who must be of similar standard (e.g. beginners) and age (with children). A free Q & A session is automatically available, so please do call to arrange a time to chat face to face. To see whether tutor and student are a good match, the first term's worth of tuition has no fixed agreement bound to either party. At the end of the term continuation will be discussed and an agreement put in place. I use one of the UK's leading educationalists Paul Harris' Simultaneous Learning Method (see http://www.paulharristeaching.co.uk/simultaneouslearning ) in order to ensure students enjoy their learning experience whilst simultaneously developing all their musicianship skills. If the above sounds agreeable to you, then please get in touch for a Q&A session.

Tell us about your experience...

I have taught mostly on a part time basis both privately and in schools since 1991, however I took a sabbatical for the last six years whilst studying for my degree. I'm now working in a local school whilst I look for private students.

What locations do you tutor in?

I tutor clarinet at home in Chester-le-Street and online, so my reach is worldwide.
