A great teacher is someone you’ll never forget


I have over ten years of instrumental teaching experience in North London working with schools, sixth forms, agencies and private students. I have relocated to my home in Porthcothan Bay in North Cornwall and have some spaces available for new students. Lessons can be held at my own home, the student’s home or online using Zoom, FaceTime or Skype.  My approach is always encouraging, friendly and positive; my lessons are well organised and structured around each individual’s interests.




In order to continue teaching during social distancing, I am now giving online lessons using Zoom – lessons are already up, running and going well – we are all enjoying them!

Tom Neale is an excellent, focused and friendly teacher. He is currently teaching me classical flute, as well as having taught me jazz saxophone to grade 8 distinction level (which I know I couldn’t have gotten without his support), as well as grade 8 flute. I have benefitted from his high quality of teaching, as he gave me ample support materials which improved my technique, as well as helpful advice for when I practice.

Each lesson feels structured and well prepared, and he coaches you towards your end goal with ease and confidence. The change in my playing has also been noticeable as many people have complimented me on my improvements.

Tom has been teaching our son Saxophone since 2011, both in school and now privately. Tom is 100% reliable and is a superb teacher; he is a patient, gentle and considered man who is both passionate and committed about his teaching and the saxophone. He is also a first class performer and an inspiration to any pupil. We would recommend him most highly.

Tom has taught my children saxophone, piano and guitar for the last couple of years. He came highly recommended from my close friends as he teaches their children. We aren't a very musical family but Tom was extremely helpful with recommending the best instruments and books to begin with. The kids enjoy his lessons and get on well with him. Tom is patient, enthusiastic and clearly passionate about music. He's always on time and never lets us down. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tom's lessons

All of the woodwind players performed very well and confidently on their instruments! Every single one of them was well prepared. I loved the ensemble piece 'hard rock blues'. We are lucky to have you as a tutor at our school!
