Saxophonist Composer Teacher
Feel free to use the contact form to discuss having lessons in my teaching studio (classical and jazz). An audio system is available to record and listen to material we study.
Workshops relate to, and improve, your instrumental performance. Recent workshop sessions include: How do I sound like that? An exploration of mouthpieces and reeds (classical and jazz), timbre and sound production. A safe, non-threatening, comfortable approach to improvisation! An introduction to jazz improvisation for (often anxious) players, with little or no experience. Reed Alteration A workshop demonstrating techniques to hone and fine tune your reeds.
The Quirk Duo is saxophonists Sarah Markham (Yamaha and Vandoren performing artist), and Kenneth Wilkinson. Between them they have a performing career spanning sixty years, enjoying many genres including solo recitals, opera, orchestral, jazz, pop and chamber music. The Quirk Duo is a distillation of those experiences, an exploration of possibilities.
