Information about Adrian

I am a professional musician and music teacher who has worked in London for the last 25 years. I have experience teaching students of all ages and abilities and am comfortable providing fun, engaging and unique lessons, each one tailored to the individual needs of the student. I have worked in a wide range of musical positions, including musician, band leader, arranger, composer, and producer, and am comfortable teaching skills relevant to these roles.

I have played across the world in a wide variety of bands throughout my career, including big bands, jazz bands, rock bands, Afrobeat bands, Indian bands and also music for film. I play regularly in the London and European improvisation club circuit with a wide range of musicians, and also perform solo saxophone recitals. My 25 years of experience playing in a wide variety of bands and ensembles means I am well-equipped to pass on the relevant skills and knowledge to students.

I have gained excellent organisational skills through my work as a band leader and teacher. Through arranging for my own jazz ensembles and street bands, I am able to arrange for school ensembles and have completed a variety of arrangements for children`s music ensembles.

Availability: Weekday daytime and weekends.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have a wealth of teaching experience that leaves me well-equipped and comfortable in providing engaging, stimulating and thorough lessons, each one suited and tailored to the needs of the individual student. A discussion with the student in the very first lesson allows me to understand the aims and goals of the individual; from there I create a learning plan that ensures these aims and goals can be met and achieved.

I currently tutor students privately, covering jazz, improvisation skills, jazz theory, classical saxophone, and am comfortable entering students into graded exams (ABRSM and Trinity). I was the Saxophone Tutor at Hackney Community College for ten years from 1995-2005, where I taught jazz Saxophone to adults, covering basic to intermediate saxophone techniques and performance skills.

I have also taught extra-curricular music to children in Primary Schools (2005-2015 at Walnut Tree Walk Primary School) and Saturday morning music centres (2000-2006 at Borough Music School).

I am also an experienced music workshop facilitator, which means I am accustomed to making my lessons as fun and engaging as my workshops are. I hold a teaching certificate from Goldsmiths College in Music Workshop Skills. From 2000-2004 I ran music workshops with children and local community members for the Thames Festival Procession. I have also been running improvisation workshops in non-idiomatic improvised music for four years now, and I have worked with students from Leeds and Middlesex University, engaging with degree based courses. From 2012 I ran workshops in community centres in and around London.
