Yes, I am very happy to teach students who are new to the instrument. I teach students of all abilities and of all ages and tailor my lessons to your individual needs. You can learn for fun or Joann can enter you for Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music Grades 1-8.
Do you teach adults as well as children ?
Yes, of course!...... its never too late to learn! I have many adult students who have taken up an instrument later in life.

I recommend regular weekly lessons, however I can be flexible and do fortnightly or book each lesson as we go along. I reccomend having at least two lessons per month in order to keep up the learning and to reduce getting into any bad playing habits.

30 minute lessons are available for under 16s only, I recommend 45 or 60 minute lessons.

Bring your instrument and any music you'd like to work on or are currently working on in the lessons. I will provide all other equipment such as music stand, backing tracks and other learning resources. I also provide handouts, exercises and sheet music in the lessons.
What ages do you teach ?
I teach both adults and children off all ages. My current students range from primary school age 6+ upto the retired who are wanting to learn a new hobby. I have an enhanced CRB check which is available to view.
Do you have professional training ?
Yes. I have a B.A.(Hons) degree in Music from Salford University, I have been awarded my grade 8's A.B.R.S.M in Saxophone, Clarinet and Flute and i have had 20 years of musical experience and education.
