Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
Kingston Music School
||All ages and abilities|
My lessons are enjoyable, relaxed and structured to help you develop your playing to the best of your ability. I also tailor the approach and content to suit your personality, age and skill level.
I focus on building a strong foundation with the following core areas: melody, harmony, rhythm, memorisation, tone, theory, aural training, technique, improvisation, building repertoire, reading and notation, creativity, musicality and self expression.
If required: ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall Jazz and Classical Performance Exams Grades 1-8, Diploma, other auditions and ABRSM Theory exams
If you are a complete beginner I have a student model Yamaha saxophone you can use during the first trial lesson. I can advise you on the most suitable equipment you will need.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
As a 64 year old retiree with absolutely no prior knowledge of music, I decided I wanted to take up the alto saxophone, learn to read music and appreciate music theory. Sebastien was not fazed by this challenge and has been extremely patient with me. He is doing the things I want to do and allowing me to try and play the type of music I enjoy, namely blues and jazz. Sebastien is clearly an accomplished musician with high standards. Whilst he insists on me playing well with good tone etc., our lessons are nevertheless informal and fun. This is exactly what I was seeking.
