Creating music is the activity where I have always been so passionate towards. In 2000 I discovered another passion which was for teaching. Being able to help other individuals enhance their knowledge, skills and learn a love for music is something that I highly value.

My upmost important goal when it comes to teaching is to instil confidence and knowledge to my students. I also encourage my students to have high realistic expectations for their achievements and get them to acknowledge their progression throughout their time learning with me.

Students preparing to play musical instruments


I teach mostly within western music genres such as pop and rock to western classical and musical theatre. However, my main speciality is in jazz, and I studied with one of jazz's most revered and sophisticated musicians Wayne Marsh, the tenor saxophonist. I tailor my lessons so that the curriculum meets my pupils' interest and needs. 


"Lessons with Claude have been an absolute joy and I look forward to them every week. He's extremely dedicated, enthusiastic and overall an outstanding teacher. I have learnt a lot over a short period of time and have developed valuable skills that I can continue to use in the far future."
