Great teacher. Very patient and happy to go over things several times if you don’t get it straight away. The lesson was fun and involved some formal elements and some improv which was great.
Great teacher, fun lessons tailored to your individual needs- would recommend to anyone.
Great tutor. As an adult returning to flute after over 10 years, the main problem was knowing where to start and Elliot has provided that guidance. I would definitely recommend.
I am a very versatile player who has studied the clarinet at music college, the saxophone at university and the flute I taught myself along the way.
I am a classically trained player who has played in various orchestras including the Halle Youth Orchestra and the CBSO Youth Orchestra. I have also played in Balkan/Klezmer bands; so my style stretches to Eastern European folk music.
I would like to improve many areas of our playing including technique, improvisation, reading music, music theory & how to combine our skills in different genres.
My lessons are always both fun and enjoyable. I firmly believe that the key to become a great player is to enjoy what you learn.
I am centrally located in the M14 5LE area of Manchester. This is a great place to learn where you can feel comfortable & at home whilst learning to play.
My full address will be disclosed upon booking your first lesson.
Music Shops in Manchester:
There are a wide variety of music shops available in Manchester. This list includes the shops that I would recommend.
One of the obvious choices would be Dawsons Music. This is an amazing music shop that caters for all musicians and has a comprehensive online store. You can find them on 30 Portland St, Manchester M1 4GS.
If you are looking for a more local styled music shop with a great selection of instruments then I would recommend Forsyth Music Shop on 126 Deansgate, Manchester M3 2GR. They have a great selection of sheet music as well as very friendly staff.
Music Courses in Manchester:
If you are interested in learning Clarinet as part of a group, or undertaking a crash course, it might be worth checking out BIMM Manchester as they offer music courses for all instruments several times a year. This includes beginner and intermediate courses to give you a good foundation in learning to play the Clarinet.
Another alternative could be to take a course at the University of Manchester. Manchester University, provides you with opportunities to meet other musicians, to perform and rehearse at the university along with guided tuition to help you improve and develop.
I would be delighted to help you learn the Clarinet. If you have any questions, please ask.
