I have run a music teaching practice from my studio in Brackley since 2000. I am fully DBS checked, and insured via the Musicians Union for Public Liability for all activities including teaching and mentoring. I also have a current Child Safeguarding Certificate and attend annual refresher courses.
Due to the recent outbreak of coronavirus, following the most recent government advice have temporarily suspended face to face music lessons, and I am conducting online lessons via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. Please contact me to organise this service.
To assist with social distancing after lockdown restrictions are lifted, I have installed clear perspex screens in my teaching studio which can be erected at a moments notice and will enable lessons to take place with little or no disruption.
Nick is such an inspirational and wonderful teacher – he taught me Clarinet from beginner to Grade 8, and I can honestly say it was him that inspired me to become the musician I am today. With me being a current Music student at university, his lessons and wisdom sticks with me always. I am so grateful to have been taught by such a fantastic teacher, and any student who is taught by Nick should count themselves a very, very lucky musician indeed.
I cannot speak highly enough of Nick! He has worked with my son from his first attempt to make a ‘sound’ to grade 7 flute, and grade 5 sax. He has motivated and inspired my son and greatly contributed to his increase in confidence. Nick is not just an excellent teacher but a fantastic role model too. We are very happy to have found him!
Nick first started teaching me when I was 14. It was a totally transformative experience and he rekindled my love and passion both for playing the flute, but also for music. He was so much more than a flute teacher; he widened my understanding of musical genres, composition, other instruments, orchestral playing as well as being a kind, attentive and supportive teacher. He gave me numerous opportunities to play in orchestras, theatre pits and concerts. I have since completed a degree in Music, conducted multiple choirs, taught many pupils the flute and had the chance to perform in some amazing venues. I am certain that without the inspiration from such a passionate musician, fabulous flautist and inspirational composer/conductor I would not have followed this career path.
