Saxophone Lessons in London

"Play Music, Express Yourself, Be Happy!"

Hi!! My name is Tom! I'm a professional teacher offering saxophone lessons in London and online saxophone lessons. I'm a jazz musician and improviser, so 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 adults and children - 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. I offer audition preparation for conservatoires and music colleges, as well as for Specialist Music Schools, NCO & IAPS courses.

Learn saxophone online - I'm happy teaching online for distance learners and International students. Online sax lessons can be extremely rewarding at any level and can yield excellent results! You can get access to our e-learning hub for parents and students, and a free jazz transcription database through the SaxTeacher UK website. I'm also happy to teach in-person at your home in London or at mine in Lewisham (Hither Green, Lee, Blackheath, Greenwich, Blackheath, Sydenham and Dulwich), offering a comfortable environment with access to a large variety of teaching resources and a Piano.

So what are you waiting for!? Get in touch and let the expression session begin!

Learn Saxophone Online

Online sax lessons have become much more popular since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Having taught the full range of ability level online during the worst of the pandemic, I can confirm that even complete beginners can fully benefit from study online, although I do recommend supervision for children under 9 years old to maintain attention.

Lessons are available on Skype, Zoom or the platform of your choice.

Online saxophone lessons are available in 30, 45 or 60 minute durations to suit your needs and schedule. Online classes are suitable for beginners, although I recommend 1 lesson in every 4 to be in person at this early stage.

So, whether you wish to avoid or reduce in-person contact due to COVID-19, need a one-off consult for an audition or exam, or simply prefer online saxophone lessons for convenience, get in touch today!

Lesson Content

My lessons put creativity and self-expression at the forefront of learning, while ensuring a solid foundation for beginners in developing a solid and reliable posture / technique, a good sense of pulse and timing, and a good ear.

Learning an instrument can be challenging, so having fun during lesson time and practise exercises is a keystone element to effective learning.
