Nick strives to offer varied teaching programmes based upon the needs of his students.  Tuition can be given at any level, from complete beginner to advanced instrumentalists.

Nick has experience of teaching both in Schools and privately, and takes pleasure in teaching the saxophone to students of any age - indeed Nick's students have encompassed an age range of over half a century!  It's never too late, or too early, to learn.

** Online lessons now available via Zoom, WhatsApp, or Skype - please ask for details **


Nick's professional bias makes him ideal to teach popular performance styles, such as soul, pop, blues, funk and jazz, as well as 'classical' music styles.  Tuition will focus on the strengths and weaknesses of each student, aiming to make them into a rounded performer in their chosen idiom.

Lessons can be delivered either at Nick's home in Poole or at your location, subject to a surcharge for fuel and travel time. Typical rates are £30 per hour at Nick's house.  

Nick is fully covered by Public Liability Insurance, as part of his Musicians Union membership.  References are available on Nick's LinkedIn page.

Nick is listed on various music teacher websites, including the dedicated directory, where you can find a variety of Music Teachers!
