He has nearly ten years worth of experience teaching all standards and abilities. “Good trumpet technique focuses on a solid embouchure, good posture and breathing, and a fluent knowledge of finger positions. I use a variety of methods to teach these which are tailored to individuals abilities and interests because I believe that pupils learn more if they enjoy their lessons and are interested in the subject matter. “Music is one of my greatest loves and I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to access it. I encourage my pupils to be not just fantastic brass players but also well rounded musicians. The final and perhaps most important element that I impart to my students is confidence, confidence, confidence!”
