So, you’ve decided you want to learn a brass instrument? Awesome, you’ve come to the right place (Not a 100% guarantee – not every student/teacher combination works out. It’s not the end of the world!)


Deciding to play an instrument is a big step. Choosing which one to play is an even bigger step. Selecting a teacher, well, that’s the biggest one yet…


At this point you’ve probably got endless questions going round and round in your head. Don’t worry, that’s perfectly normal.

To help dispel some of those fears and answer most, if not all, of your questions, I offer a free 30-minute consultation lesson.

In your consultation we will have an informal chat about your motivation for learning an instrument, any goals (short or long term) you may have, Nick’s teaching methods, your learning style and any additional (relevant) needs you may have.


To book your free consultation session or if you have any questions, contact Nick at:
