Information about Luke

Hello! I am an enthusiastic and very patient teacher who promises a fun and friendly approach to learning an instrument for all ages and abilities - from complete beginners right up to experienced players.

Availability: My weekly schedule is flexible. I can teach weekday afternoons and evenings as well as weekends. I am often available to teach during school holidays if required. I also teach online, so very happy to organise lessons via Skype, Zoom or by whichever means you prefer.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have been teaching privately for over a decade as well as having extensive experience of group teaching, peripatetic teaching and coaching small ensembles and orchestral wind sections. I have given lessons at the American School in London, the Centre for Young Musicians Hackney and at Music’all in Fulham as well as at the City of London School for Boys as part of the Art of Teaching Module at the Royal College of Music. I’ve also been the Woodwind Mentor on the Pro Corda Chamber Orchestra Course at Leiston Abbey, Suffolk and I am currently the Visiting Woodwind Teacher at Queen’s College London and Queen’s College Preparatory School.

As a performer I have worked with professional orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of English National Opera, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Royal Ballet Sinfonia, English National Ballet Philharmonic, Royal Northern Sinfonia, London Mozart Players, London Chamber Orchestra and Aurora Orchestra. In the UK I have performed in venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, the Barbican, Symphony Hall Birmingham, Bridgewater Hall Manchester, Philharmonic Hall Liverpool, Leeds Town Hall and the Sage Gateshead, as well as most regional theatres. I’ve also toured all across Europe, China and the Far East. I have performed in a variety of chamber ensembles and I am the bassoonist of the Armartis Ensemble, as well as giving solo recitals for an array of different festivals, both nationally and internationally including the Encuentro de Música y Academia de Santander, Spain.

Malcolm (Mr)

4/5 Rating

I studied music at university and I am an adult learner studying flute, previously learning other instruments to a fair standard (Grade 8).

I have had three lessons only with Luke, so it is still rather early days (and too early to give an `excellent` rating).

Luke has a good combination of being approachable, business like and courteous running his lessons. I enjoy my lessons with him.

Luke is now a professional bassoonist, but has previously studied flute to a very high standard. He understands the flute very well and how to address weaknesses. I feel confident that Luke could help me achieve a very good standard.
