For over seven years I have been teaching both children and adults to play saxophone. The abilities of my students range from absolute beginner to grade 8 standard covering material such as graded classical pieces to jazz repertoire.

Everyone learns differently so I tailor lessons to suit each students’ needs and what they wish to achieve. Whether you wish to work towards graded exams or learn just for fun I am happy to cater lessons to suit any goal.

“In a nice way Alexis is a task master and didn’t allow me much latitude in “fudging” tricky phrases, or indeed music I was plainly not reading/playing correctly. This has really helped me realise how important it is to understand what’s written down and how it should sound. I thoroughly enjoyed my saxophone lessons with Alexis. I would without hesitation recommend her if you just want to start as a beginner or if you already play saxophone but need some issues sorting out”

“Alexis taught the flute to my eleven year old daughter and the clarinet to my ten year old daughter for nearly two years and both thoroughly enjoyed the lessons. They really improved on their instruments and went on to achieve distinctions in grade 1 clarinet and grade 2 flute.”

“Alexis taught myself and my daughter. She is very patient. Lessons are fun and flexible; I’d definitely recommend Alexis for budding saxophonists of any age.”
