1) See my musicians profile. 2) Saxophone, alto/tenor not oboe or clarinet.


My guiding principle is 'what is needed at the right time'  My approach is student centered.  I encourage social support, that is I give 2 for 1 sessions for a family member or friend and material to be played together.  I encourage musicians to be more aware of the intrinsic pleasures of music over the social/status motivations. I teach the overlap of instrumental practice and meditation/relaxation, if that is of interest.
