About Andrew C.
Since graduating from Leeds College of Music with a 1st Class Honours degree in jazz, I have built extensive education experience ranging from working with mainstream schools, to SEN schools and adults. Playing music isn't only about learning an instrument, it has huge benefits in all aspects of life and it is great fun!
As a professional saxophonist I have toured the world as a session player with bands - Postmodern Jukebox and Shed Seven - as well as with my own projects - Renegade Brass Band, Little Violet, Back Chat Brass.
Notable appearances include - European/North Africa tours with Postmodern Jukebox, UK Tours with Shed Seven, Dubai Jazz Festival, Java Jazz Festival (Indonesia), Stuttgart Jazz Festival, Soundwave Festival (Croatia), Glastonbury, Boomtown, London Jazz Festival, BBC6 Music Festival
- Music/Jazz theory
- Specialising in jazz/pop
In your first lesson I will aim to get a good idea of where you are at with your musical development and which areas will be best to begin focussing on. I like to get to know the musical tastes of my students so we can focus on working towards the type of musician that you want to be.
Students can expect look at a range of subjects dependant on their proficiency level:
- Active listening
- Repertoire that builds to the student's aims and musical ambitions
- Working on sound
- Rhythmic exercises
- Scale exercises
The first lesson will be focussing on getting to know the instrument, putting it together and finding that first sound! From then on, an introduction into the first few notes on the instrument so you can get playing right away.
