I have been teaching the trumpet for five years, both privately and through agencies and schools. I teach through the Musico agency and at the North London Music Centre, which has given me the chance to teach students of all ages, from seven to sixty. I teach students with many different requirements, from complete beginners to experienced players looking to improve their technique, or to learn more about approaching jazz improvisation.

Each student has different requirements and different interests, and I will tailor my teaching methods to you. I teach in a very participatory way, by example, focusing on playing together with the student. I like to put things in a wider musical context, focusing on how to approach playing different styles, with reference to their development and some theory, rather than learning by rote. Whilst I am classically trained, my speciality is jazz and improvisation, and I teach this through ear training methods like chord and scale recognition, combined with swapping phrases and riffs with the student, which can be inspiring for both participants. I also run a local jazz jam session, and I encourage my students to come and play on stage.

I am also a working musician, and I play in various jazz ensembles, function bands, and world music ensembles. I am always learning more about playing, and finding ways to pass this onto my students.


Aimed at: Beginner and Intermediate.
