Saxophone lessons with a very qualified, friendly, experienced and reliable teacher! (Online and in person!)

Book an online lesson with Tom! - Tom is an award winning Saxophonist who's work has stemmed from recording sax parts for the Lego Marvel Superhero franchise to writing and releasing albums with Edition Records. Other work includes international touring and TV appearances with pop artists such as Tom Fletcher and The Four Tops. Tom has been teaching privately and in schools for the past 4 years. During this time he has also completed the Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music teaching qualification.

"Tom has been tutoring my daughter Emma (8) on saxophone for about 6 months and the progress Emma has made is unbelievable. Tom is very friendly, plays the saxophone exceptionally and his lessons are always fun. It is hard to find the right tutor, especially when it comes to music, but Tom is amazing at what he does and Emma always looks forward to her saxophone lessons. I would recommend Tom to anyone who wishes to learn to play the saxophone in a fun and engaging way." - Eva

"10 out of 10. Tom is simply - Excellent. We were so lucky to find Tom and even luckier that he had the time in his schedule to accommodate our son with a weekly lesson. We believe Tom was instrumental in our son attaining successful music college applications - but even more importantly - his lovely, easy understated, non-intimidating rapport with our son is why we give him a 10 out of 10! He offers efficient structured lessons and is very encouraging. Of course Tom’s music theory and knowledge is exceptional...to have the guidance of a Royal Academy of Music Scholarship recipient has been nothing short of a privilege for son! Our son would like to keep carrying on with Tom until he gets to his next step - in order to keep his playing at the ready." - Janis

"My lessons with Tom have been a fantastic propellant for developments in terms of my technical facility, musicianship and developing a unique voice. Having the privilege of guidance from a master musician like Tom has allowed me to develop further and accomplish more than I could've hoped. Tom listens and clearly explains every concept and exercise with clarity, he cares about getting the most out of the lesson time which means you come away with plenty of material to work on. And as an extra bonus it's always a pleasure to hear him play his saxophone." - Marko

About Me

Hello,

I am a First Class BMus Degree graduate of the Royal Academy of Music. I am currently looking for students of any age and standard that have a desire to learn in an enjoyable, tailored and inspired way! I am currently doing most of my teaching online but I am open to travelling as things open up.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the Saxophone, Clarinet, Improvisation and jazz composition on any instrument.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a First Class Hons Degree in Jazz Performance from the Royal Academy of Music.

I have a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music qualification which is a separate teaching qualification through the Royal Academy which focuses on 1-1 and group teaching.

I am the winner of the 2017 Kenny Wheeler Prize in association with Edition Records.

I am also a free-lance jazz and session musician. Previous work includes the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, Buckingham Palace, Live television broadcasts such as Blue Peter (Tom Fletcher appearance), Ronnie Scott's, The soundtrack to Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 and DC Villains console games.

I achieved my grade 8 distinction in Saxophone back in 2010

- Where do you teach?

I currently do all my teaching from home over Skype or Zoom but as things start opening up I'd be happy to travel to your home for the added cost of travel

- When are you available?

I am currently available on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursday's and Friday's.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach students of all ages and standards on the Clarinet and Saxophone.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

This really depends on the student but ABRSM graded exams can work well to motivate a younger pupil to want to play their instrument. I have also prepared young adults for their Conservatoire audition. I am also open to preparing students for any other music-related qualifications that they wish to partake in.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions! I am reliable and determined to get the best of out my students whilst attempting to inspire them in a comfortable, fun environment :)

Thanks!

Tom

Saxophone and Flute Jazz and Classical from Professional Musician
I’m a professional musician who studied on the highly regarded jazz course at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance; whilst at Trinity I also studied Flute with members of some of London’s prestigious orchestras. I've performed all over London at well known venues like Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and The South Bank Centre but also played around in the city in jazz clubs like Kansas Smitty’s and Olivers. As well as performing in London I’ve played all around the UK and abroad at festivals such as the New Generations Festival in Florence (playing with American jazz artists such as Dominic Farinacci and Dan Tepfer). I’m also a highly experienced and regard teacher having taught all the way from university level to primary school. My teaching adapts to the pupil after we identify the areas we want to and wish to work on but also aspects of playing i think you need to improve or will be good to work on. I can also provide theory lessons

Jazz Lessons in Amsterdam. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you love music and you feel the inner urge of learning it, I can help you out. I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical. After years of studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing and singing. Music is like language,so I start by teaching how to connect the voice with the instrument. In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I've been learning music since I was 3 years old and recently I've graduated with a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam.

I'm a professional performer since 5 years ago and I've performed in several countries around the world.

Do you want to learn how to play saxophone in Amsterdam?
Music is the best way of communication in the world, the most international language and an easy way of sharing. Teaching means a lot for me; it allows me to pass on beautiful things I have learnt and at the same time to improve thanks to my students' feedback. Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results. We can work out many different topics together, such as learning tunes, technique, improvising, as well as approaching theory, reading, circular breathing, altissimo register and multiphonics... The lessons usually take place in my studio close by Javaplein in Amsterdam or by my house in Bos en Lommer. I work mornings and evenings as well as in the week end. Saxophone is fun! Contact me and get a first lesson as soon as possible, I am looking forward to meeting you.
