Teacher Wanted Teacher - South Manchester, England?

I've had my alto for 6 weeks now and have put off getting a teacher, for fear of getting the wrong one, I guess.


I live just South West of Manchester in Urmston, handy for the M60, so can get to many places quite quickly outside of rush hours.


1) I've found a teacher called Chooie on the web who offers a free hour, then 5 hours at £12.50, thereafter £17.50 per hour. He is in Sale, so only ten minutes from home. Seems too good to be true - anyone know of him, or have any comment:

2) Also found a more "traditional" teacher at £25 per hour - Neil Richard, who is in Glossop, which is 45 minutes away, and a lesson would take up a whole evening.


Captcha


3) A friends son is taught by a teacher called Sarah Masters in Sale, Manchester. Again only minutes from home.


Anyone any comments on the above, or any recommendations for a good teacher in the Manchester area - preferably South of the City, Stockport, Altrincham, Sale, Didsbury, Stretford, Chorlton, etc., but I would travel a bit if necessary.


Many Thanks


Richard

Make sure you have a trial/introductory lesson before committing. Discuss what you want to play/learn. A good teacher will want to do this from his/her side as well. Getting on well from the start is important.

I've a feeling there's also a forum member in Whalley Range or Chorlton who teaches. I'll pm you if I can remember his name.

Could it be Sam Lewis? - I googled a bit more and came up with this.

adrianallen, he's a music teacher, not sure if he teaches sax. I don't know anyone who's been taught by him.

There are quite a few members from Manchester/Greater Manchester. Hopefully one of them will have some recommendations for you as well.

Hi Richard,

I've used Paul as a teacher and had a couple of lessons. Would recommend, if you are looking for an environment that is informal, you won't go far wrong.

I have only stopped going to him as I didn't have time over summer. Now the nights are drawing in again the sax is calling me....
