Conducting the junior band at Husavik Music School, Iceland in 1987. Almost all the kids in this photo are wearing track suits as, after the rehearsal, they would clip on their ski's to ski home through the very deep snow. When I first arrived it snowed heavily 24/7 for eight weeks!

The RAF College Band lay down their instruments for a well earned break during last years 100th anniversary celebrations.

This was one of a series of saxophone master classes I gave in collaboration with my good friend and colleague Don Wright. This was a 'group' workshop activity and not to be confused with 'normal' tuition which is given on a one-to-one basis.

Since taking lessons with Chris my playing has improved considerably. He is very patient and not critical when I play badly. He is always suggesting ways to practice better and improve my playing. It was quite daunting taking up lessons later in life, but he makes you feel at ease and able to progress. I am now working towards my grade 2 clarinet exam, and also working on improving my music theory to help with playing/reading music.

Chris has been teaching my 12 year old daughter clarinet and alto saxophone for nearly 5 years now and is also currently teaching my 9 year old son clarinet. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and focuses on good technique and allows my children to experience a wide repertoire of music. He always provides extra opportunities for them to learn outside of their lessons by sending us music and links for additional support and learning.

I am just finishing my first course with Chris. As an "older" student who is learning an instrument and music for the first time, I was extremely apprehensive and nervous, but made to feel very comfortable with my progress, or sometimes lack of it ! I will be continuing with my lessons.Great teacher, would highly recommend !!!
