Feedback From Students

Having picked up my saxophone again after 20 years barely touching it, I decided to take some lessons. In a couple of lessons John has opened up my sound by correcting my embouchure and I feel I have made really good progress in finding my way around the instrument again. More importantly the lessons have been relaxed and enjoyable.

I am an experienced, keen, amateur sax player and went to John for help with my tone and rhythmic playing. John is very patient and encouraging and gave me lots of advice to improve "my sound" which I am still working on. I would recommend John to all those who want an expert saxophone ear to listen to them and offer help.

As an beginner in my thirties I needed a patient teacher who understood the music I wanted to play. In just a few months i've gone from total beginner to playing tunes and increasing my knowledge of theory too.John is great teacher - encouraging and patient and loves music! After all, "Life without music would be a mistake "Nietsche

John is an excellent teacher. I have been taking lessons with him for about three months and have improved faster than at any other time in my saxophone-playing life (over 10 years). His lessons are a breath of fresh air compared to learning out of method books, with a real focus on getting deep into a tune before broadening it out and applying it to other contexts. Also a great musician and composer in his own right- it was listening to his stuff that led me to him as a teacher.

Great teacher. Very supportive and let me decide where I wanted to go. Got me to be less theoretical and to get into the mood. How often do you get to see your sax teacher performing at a jazz club?
