"Not every brilliant professional soloist can be an inspiring teacher. Alastair is modestly and thoroughly both! In my 2 years as an aged saxophone newbie pupil, he has introduced me to a wide classical repertoire (and jazz) to play, to strive for, to appreciate and enjoy! The progress I've made is hugely satisfying (despite the age barrier)! And he's no stranger to the keyboard either, so accompanied "performances" were a highlight of lessons. Alastair's website teaching resources are the icing on the cake." - Teresa Scholtz (Adult saxophone student)
Alastair maintains a website of teaching resources for students which can be accessed at http://www.saxresources.co.uk. The website mostly contains reference recordings and play-along accompaniments for popular pieces.
