Welcome!

Clarinet bellWith a small but growing teaching practice based in North Nottinghamshire, UK, I make sure that learning music is relaxing and enjoyable. My approach is highly individual according to the needs of each student, and I make it my responsibility to help each one reach their goals. Whether learning for pleasure or taking graded exams in preparation for a career in music, my students receive the same professional standard of tuition.

About me: I have played clarinet and piano for over 40 years, and I love teaching! I live with my wife of 30 years, a retired assistance dog Rhys (a very friendly pekinese cross) and a rather beautiful Yamaha U3 upright piano. After living and working in London, we moved back into Nottinghamshire a few years ago, although I still perform with a small North London orchestra from time to time.Gifford Birchley at Neaum Crag, Cumbria
