I’m extremely lucky to live local to Dean, so manage to get some regular face to face lessons with him.
As a returning player, after over a decade absence, the progress I’ve made since working with Dean has been fantastic, particularly with my tone & timing.
He’s not like the stuffy teacher I remember having at school. Humorous, fun, and able to explain areas I’m struggling with in simple terms. Whilst he’s clearly passionate about Jazz, he doesn’t force this during his lessons… although it is growing on me.
