My Experience as a Teacher

As well as having performed at many prominent concerts and venues, I have regularly lectured and directed students in various high profile settings. Notable examples include holding masterclasses at the Trinity College of Music, Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy Music.

In addition to my institutional work, I have also supported many private students preparing for professional auditions. I pride myself in delivering insight and informed advice, as I have experienced first hand the pressure of such trials many times!

I often include effective teaching methods that were presented to me during my time in higher education. Learning from incredible players at Chetham's School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, I received world class guidance that I now channel into my own teaching.

Supporting Every Aspect Of Learning Clarinet

From in-lesson guidance to helping you find the right instrument

Music Shops in Chester

Many students regularly ask where they can find excellent outlets that provide instruments most suitable to their needs. Fortunately in Chester and surrounding areas, there are several note worthy stores which provide instruments and servicing for all types of player.

Boasting a great range of clarinets from entry level to professional grade instruments, Dawsons is located at 30 Pepper Street, Chester, CH1 1DF.

Curly Woodwind, located at 38 Renshaw Street, Liverpool, L1 4EF, is a provider of premium grade instruments for the more seasoned clarinetists. However, they also have a rental service which may be useful for beginners who wish to test the waters before committing to a more expensive purchase.

Based at Chaise Meadow, Lymm, WA13 9NX, Cheshire Woodwind provides not only a range of high quality instruments, but also a selection of servicing options. Like most orchestral instruments, clarinets are fragile. Cheshire Woodwind could prove useful should your instrument require maintenance at some point in it's life.
