Hello! I have been teaching for about nine years, first of all as an employee of Berklee College of Music in Boston, and then privately. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee with a three-year diploma in Jazz Composition and Film Scoring (dual major).

Apart from tutoring, I work as a professional musician, composing and orchestrating for TV, film and theatre, and playing trumpet in various settings.

I am a patient, approachable and motivated tutor, and do my best to make sessions enjoyable. I listen carefully to the needs of my students and try to come up with an approach to fit the individual.

Group Classes

Leytonstone Community Big Band

I am the MD of a community big band who rehearse weekly in Leytonstone. We play a wide range of jazz big band music, including numbers made famous by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Sarah Vaughan, Shirley Bassey, Dizzy Gillespie, Maynard Ferguson, and big band arrangements of works by Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Wayne Shorter and others, plus one or two original compositions and arrangements.

Attending a band like this is a great way to improve your reading and your playing in the jazz style, and there are opportunities for improvising. The band is made up of 5 saxes (2 altos, 2 tenors and a baritone), 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, and a rhythm section of piano, guitar, bass and drums. Standard is mixed from intermediate to advanced, and ages are mixed too, from about 18* to retirement age. I push the band to play the music as well as we can, but always try to make sure that people are enjoying the rehearsals too!

If you are interested in joining the band, please get in touch. If there is not a vacant chair for your instrument then we can put you on the waiting list until a space becomes available. You are welcome to try the band out for a week or two, but ultimately we need people who will commit to attending rehearsals every week.

*If you are younger than 18 and are interested in joining, please get in touch! If there's much interest I could potentially start up a new band for younger players...
