WOODWIND TUTORS

If woodwind is your choice then we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re looking to play Clarinet, Flute or Saxophone we have the teachers for you.

We are lucky to have two tutors who are highly experienced in all three instruments! From beginners to advanced players they are able to cater to your level.
