Saxophone Lessons in London

Most students prefer to attend in-person saxophone lessons in London. Technology is great, but the learning experience of a 1 to 1 face to face session is second to none.

Having a teacher physically present makes it easier for students to stay motivated, ensures all questions are answered, and means tutors can regularly review form and technique. It’s also the quickest and easiest way to progress.

That’s why I offer home-visit saxophone lessons right across London (Lewisham, Hither Green, Lee, Blackheath, Greenwich, Blackheath, Sydenham and Dulwich). If you prefer to visit your teacher, my teaching room in Lewisham is also available with a wide range of resources and a piano. Please enquire for further details.

Learn Saxophone Online

Online saxophone lessons can be extremely rewarding at any level and yield excellent results. They have become much more popular since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why I offer virtual private classes for distance learners, international students, those with busy lifestyles and simply anyone wishing to master the instrument.

Virtual classes are suitable for advanced, intermediate and beginner students. Having taught the full range of ability levels virtually, I can confirm that even complete sax novices can benefit from studying remotely. However, I do recommend supervision for children under 9 years old to maintain attention. Plus, if students live locally, I advocate one lesson in every four to be in person at this early stage.

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