Andy is fantastic teacher, his knowledge of the saxophone is amazing and his enthusiasm for teaching equally amazing.

JOHN CLIFTON

Andy Is a unique sort of guy – he is a very competent saxophonist – a teacher to many of us & lead sax in a variety of bands. He has also become a good friend & occasionally a confidant when one needs to talk.

Tuition is always fun but progressive – pushing our boundaries a little bit more – like playing in a difficult key!! Ouch!

I started playing at 58….(Andy was barely out of nappies!!) but he took the risk, he took on a slightly crazy lady who still doesn’t read music properly but loves improvising!

It’s a joy & wonderful therapy.
