saxofonix.co.uk http://saxofonix.co.uk Specialist music management agency Mon, 08 Aug 2016 13:09:04 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.19 Waving goodbye to Nottingham http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=1000 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=1000#comments Tue, 08 Jul 2014 13:43:39 +0000 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=1000 I’m coming to the end of a fantastic four terms working for Nottingham Music Service as a temporary Wider Opportunities Instrumental Teacher. I’ve been teaching flute and clarinet in a total of nine different schools across Nottingham city, as well as coaching the woodwind section at three different area bands. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being much more closely connected with the people benefiting from our services than was possible in previous office based jobs, and it’s been particularly rewarding to see the enormous progress that the students have made over the last year. I’ve met so many wonderful young people and teachers, and it’s been a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the great team at Nottingham Music Service.

I had my last day of teaching yesterday, which was an excellent day working in two schools plus area band. In the morning school, there were performances by the Year 4 classes and Year 5 follow on group and individuals. It went extremely well, particularly considering that there was only one hour to rehearse all the groups, including a joint item by the two Year 4 classes! In the afternoon it was my whole class of Year 4 flutes, who, having started as complete beginners in September, played and sang brilliantly with confidence and great tone. The teacher’s reaction to their progress was one of amazement, not having been involved in the classes in recent weeks, and the young people themselves were so proud of their playing. A huge number are interested in joining an area band next year, so I gave them a special additional session to help to prepare them.

I’m looking forward to finishing in style with a full day of concerts at the Albert Hall (Nottingham!) tomorrow. Thank You and Goodbye Nottingham – it’s been a blast!

Happy 2nd Anniversary! http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=962 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=962#comments Thu, 01 Aug 2013 13:41:49 +0000 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=962 I’m delighted to be celebrating my second anniversary of New Life, my freelance venture and adventure in music! My portfolio of work has expanded this year to include regular flute teaching work with both Artforms Leeds and Nottingham Music Services, which has proved both successful and rewarding. It’s been a successful year for Andy Scott too, including being shortlisted for a British Composer Award and being selected for a New Music Biennial, both highly prestigious schemes.

I have really enjoyed working with Andy Scott, Apollo Saxophone Quartet, Caliente trio, Artforms Leeds and Nottingham Music Services in the last year and I’m looking forward to many more exciting developments in the coming year.

Website now up and running http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=878 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=878#comments Fri, 01 Feb 2013 14:12:25 +0000 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=878 18 months to the day since I embarked on my freelance adventure I’m delighted to report that my website is now up and running on the interwebs! This new website will be both a showcase for the artists and ensembles that I manage and a virtual shop window for my various services  In Sounds, In Words and In Pictures. I will be launching the In Words section first, followed by In Sounds and In Pictures later in the year.

The site is currently at the beta testing stage, so if you do happen to notice any issues with the functionality of the site on any platform please do let me know. I would also be very grateful for any other general feedback on the design, content and navigation. I will continue to edit the site throughout February before it is finalised and officially live, and there will also be further developments with additional pages and media content over the coming months.

Bad luck and good luck http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=655 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=655#comments Tue, 11 Dec 2012 14:18:27 +0000 http://saxofonix.co.uk/?p=655 Been busy doing a photoshoot for the new website today. Got some great shots but managed to break a lamp in the process so I hope that doesn’t mean I’m in for years of bad luck!

By contrast, had a very exciting start to the day when my tweet to the Breakfast Show on BBC Radio was read out live on air! My 15 minutes – well, 30 seconds – of fame! Apparently it was holding a saxophone in my Twitter image that swung it, which just goes to prove my theory that you should always carry a saxophone!

Watch this space to see the new images appearing on the site in the next few weeks…
