Expanding My Teaching at Yorkshire College of Music

Yorkshire College of Music is moving from its Headingley site to a more modern building opposite the university:

St Marks House, 1 St Marks Avenue, LS2 9BN

In addition to offering flute, saxophone and piano tuition (classical and jazz beginner to grade 8) I will be running some new courses in Cuban music and improvisation – do get in touch with me if you’d like individual or group tuition. I want to set up some small improvisation groups from beginner level upwards and also plan to run some weekend intensive courses in Cuban music there too – the first course is 2 and 3 October and has 8 places left.

Workshops and Courses in Cuban Music

NEW: A weekend intensive course on Cuban popular music early Autumn in Leeds plus a course in Cuba with Buena Vista Social Club and veteran son and charanga musicians later in the year – email Sue for more details.

My courses and workshops in Cuban music are arrangements-based catering for a big band line-up that also includes strings. I have written over 30 arrangements for brass, woodwind, piano, bass, percussion, strings and vocalists with the aim of teaching the Cuban styles of Son, Son Montuno, Danzón, Mambo, Chachachá, Bolero, Guajira and Pachanga through practical ‘hands on’ rehearsal and performance.
