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.
Since the lifting of restrictions following the coronavirus pandemic, I teach mainly face-to-face but do have the facility to teach online if necessary.
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.
