“…There was charm and freshness in final year Craig Holmes (flute) interpretation of Gabriel Faure's Morceau de Concours. He brought this often underrated but beautiful instrument to life…” Graham Hewitt – Fundington Music Prize, Chichester

Woodwind Teacher

Private Tuition


Teaching Flute, Saxophone and Clarinet

Catering for every age, ability and style

It is my aim to create a stimulating and productive learning environment in which the delivery of a well-organised lesson can guarantee pupils are being challenged by the lesson. I have high expectations for both pupils and myself in what I want us to achieve. I believe in positive reinforcement and leading by example, encouraging pupils to achieve their best.

During lessons you will learn good posture, technique and develop a good tone. You can learn how to read music and how to practice to achieve your potential.
