My teaching is carried out both privately from my home and in Surrey schools.
Privately, I teach pupils of all ages, from about 7 to retired. Trumpet and cornet are the most popular although I have many pupils playing lower brass instruments, such as french horn, trombone, tenor horn, baritione and euphonium. I teach all styles of music, including classical and jazz improvisation.
Aural and musical knowledge (including theory) are covered as required as part of the lessons. In addition I teach theory to grade 5 in individual lessons.
Whilst some are learning purely for their own enjoyment, I generally encourage pupils to take grades, to perform and to join local bands and orchestras.

I play in a number of local orchestras and bands and help out in many more, including Redhill Sinfonia, Dorking Chamber Orchestra and Mole Valley Silver Band. I also run my own function band, Acoustic Resonance.
I have a PhD in physics and have studied music at both the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Goldsmith’s College. I sometimes also compose and arrange for the bands I play with.
I teach trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, tenor horn, french horn, baritone, euphonium, and trombone.
Private lessons are given at my home, in Bookham, Surrey. I also make home visits, but charge extra for these. My pupils mostly come from Bookham, Fetcham, Ashtead, Leatherhead, Effingham, Dorking, Guildford, Espom, and the surrounding areas of the Mole Valley.
