Simon Spillett

Award Winning Jazz Saxophonist

Professional Saxophone Teacher with over thirty years' experience

Like a lot of professional musicians, alongside performing I also teach.

I offer saxophone tuition (alto, tenor and soprano saxes) covering technique, improvisation and harmony as well as group performance (classes for jazz ensembles of all sizes), jazz listening/history and developing repertoire.

I have facilities in which to teach (complete with a piano) or can travel to students, whichever suits.

I am also available to teach online via Zoom for those students unable to travel for lessons.

I teach either individual students or groups - from beginners to advanced - drawing on over three decades of experience as a working saxophonist.

Teaching sessions are tailored to what you the student wish to cover, whether that be polishing up existing techniques, dealing with a specific gear-related issue (horns, mouthpieces, reeds etc.) or simply getting to grips with improvisation - mine is definitely not a regimented "grades only" approach.

Sessions can be booked on a one-off basis (or, if you've had a lesson before, as a "top up") or as part of a series designed to help the student progress in structured stages towards a specific goal.

The only essential requirements are that you are prepared to work hard and enjoy what we cover!
