Hi folks! Thanks for checking out my 'profile' if you will.
I welcome and embrace all levels of experience from beginners to higher level players, working with both Jazz and Classical Theory, depending on the end goal of the student. For students looking to progress through the grading system, there is a very clearly defined set of criteria which I help my students meet by helping to add precision and musicality to their performance. I don't believe, however, that it's completely necessary to progress through examination board material in order to develop and gain a sense of satisfaction from your instrument; far from it!
I have set up a 'Community Music Workshop' at Open Source Arts (Kirkstall Road, Leeds) from which I will draw my students along side other members of the public (amateur or otherwise) to rehearse a repertoire chosen by us, for us, with the end goal of performing at Open Mic nights and other community events.
I am happy to host the lessons at my abode, travel to your home or set up some preliminary lessons at a community space such as Leeds Music Hub.
For more info, links to myself in action or general advice on finding a suitable teacher / technician to service your instrument please, don't hesitate to contact me by which ever means you see fit.
***A little bit about myself: I've been a professional musician for the past 7 years but took up the clarinet at age 12. In 2012 I formed both The After Hours Quintet (20's Hot Jazz) & The After Hours (Live Electro Swing). Between the two projects we draw on influences as diverse as jazz, funk, soul, swing, reggae, balkan, klezmer, be-bop, pop, ska etc. In 2015 I joined local Klezmer band Kibitz and Manchester based Reggae Collective - The Cooperatives. I have made musical collaborations with Slamboree, Step Cat, Dub Jazz Sound System, Rum Jig, Howlin' Ric and the Rocketeers, Me and my friends, to name a few.
