Anglo-American sax and flute player who has lived in the UK for over 20 years and has built up a great reputation for the power and ‘visceral excitement’ in his playing.

A protégé of Marcus Printup (Lincoln Center Orchestra) I have come to develop a unique sound of my own that stands out in my many musical involvements.

I have featured  with artists like Kasabian, Lack of Afro, Haggis Horns, Nitin Sawhney, This is The KitMr Benn, Chris Monkey and  I’m at the forefront of popular Bristol bands  Phantom EnsembleBaila la Cumbia,  Dockside Latin Orchestra, Radio BanskaandDub From Atlantisto name a few.

I have also shared the stage with jazz greats including Wynton Marselis, Maceo Parker, Dr Lonnie Smith, John Faddis, Pee Wee Ellis, have featured on BBC Radio 4 “Loose Ends” and worked at world  renowned venues like Ronnie Scotts and The Blue Note in New York City.

Teaching Experience

As an educator I have been teaching for over 20 years with much of that time as assistant director of the highly acclaimed BlowoutSax School in Bath.

I have helped many of my students into world famous music programs including Trinity, Royal Academy, Royal Welsh, Leeds School Of Music and Chethams School Of Music.

As these young musicians have come out of further studies they have turned into working professional musicians in their own right!

I am one of Headwind‘s recommended saxophone teachers and I work closely with them to arrange equipment for my students when needed.

I’m also highly sought after for educational workshops and I continue to encourage and promote the jazz genre to young people.

I’m now offering online saxophone lessons.

    There’s so much I could write about Craig he has not just been a teacher to my son for 10 years, but a friend and mentor. At times when my son had confidence issues … read more Craig’s patients, caring nature and belief in his ability carried him through and by the time he was 16 passed his grade 8 with Merit. Craig made every exam entry so easy by submitting the forms, preparing and supporting. Craig has had regular contact with my sons music teacher at school keeping them up to date. Craig also makes loads of effort arranging gigs for fun for his students in his own time! so it’s not all lessons the students get real performance time. My son is having and enjoying his lessons with Craig.
