Private Lessons

Stephen has a small private teaching studio that he teaches just outside London. He also has a small studio in Northern Ireland that he teaches once per month. Although mostly advanced students Stephen is always delighted to help students of all ages and abilities from those just at the start of their flute playing journey right through to professional flute players seeking an extra opinion or help with unfamiliar repertoire etc. Stephen has had students win places at all the music colleges in the UK and also many have won places in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Lessons are 1 hour long, very relaxed and completely non-competitive. Stephen’s entire aim as a teacher is to help students make progress. Stephen is also happy to give private lessons in other cities of the world if he is travelling there and his schedule allows it.

If you are interested in booking a lesson please contact Stephen using the contact page where he will be delighted to discuss your needs and availability.


Masterclasses

Stephen gives masterclasses and workshops regularly throughout the world at music colleges, universities, festivals and organisations. Often these are paired with a recital. If you would like to discuss possibilities in arranging such an event please use the contact page.

Online Lessons

Stephen has several students around the globe who take online flute lessons with him. He is also a featured flute teacher on Play with A Pro. All that is required is a good internet connection and a smartphone with a camera or laptop with a camera. Although different in some ways to an “in person” lesson, many students are finding this incredibly useful and practical.

Stephen has been one of the most inspirational and influencial teachers I have ever had. He is very professional, informative, dedicated and very friendly in his teachings. I’m grateful for all his lessons, support and encouragement in helping me gain the principal flute chair with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music

I followed Stephen on Instagram for quite a while, had downloaded (& loved) his album. We had spoken a couple of times when a project I had coming up seemed perfect for his input. We had a couple of Skype lessons. He was hugely sympathetic, both of my technical difficulties and my many neuroses. He’s immensely intuitive and clearly expresses what he’s thinking. I felt completely at ease working with him and only wish we could have had more time!
