Hi!! My name is Tom! I’m a professional saxophone player and jazz musician, teacher and improviser. I LOVE MUSIC, playing, teaching, singing, dancing, writing and thinking about it!
I have been teaching for more than 11 years, and I know for sure that playing music should be fun whatever your level – if its not, youre not doing it right! Playing an instrument is a chance to let your individuality and style flourish, whether you’re a complete beginner getting started, an intermediate looking to improve your groove or an advanced student looking to add some SPICE to your improvising skills.
I tutor musicians from age 8 – 80, students, undergraduates, professionals and hobby players. ITS ALL GOOD! I like to keep creativity ALIVE in my lessons by working in harmony with your personality, skills and goals. If exams are your thing, that works too! My students have a great track record of success in ABRSM exams from Grades 1-8, by now I have submitted students for hundreds of them, achieving a high percentage of merits and distinctions. I offer audition preparation for conservatoires and music colleges, as well as for Specialist Music Schools, NCO & IAPS courses.
I’m happy teaching online for International students, in-person at your home in South-East London (Hither Green, Lee, Blackheath, Greenwich, Blackheath, Sydenham and Dulwich), or at mine in Lewisham offering a comfortable environment with access to a large variety of teaching resources and a Piano.
