To Whom It May Concern:
I have known Claude Alexander for a little over one year. I have no formal
musical training and some may argue no musical talent, but I did as a child play
in a junior brass band and some twenty-five years after last playing, decided
that I wanted to be a great flugelhorn player. So I rang Claude and he said
let's get learning. We have fun in lessons, and although I tease him for being too hard on
me, he is a patient and realistic man.
I have found lessons with Claude to be that most crucial of things for effective
learning, that is to say, they are fun. His personality makes me want to make
progress and although as a busy primary school headteacher I don’t always have
time to practice, he is patient and gracious with my efforts. In addition,
he has stopped me
being too self-critical and is always 100% supportive.
Claude is warm and welcoming – and does a nice coffee too! I would not hesitate to
recommend him as an instrumental coach. It has been a real pleasure studying
with him, and I am delighted with the progress I have made over the past year,
and hope to make even more over the next year.
