An interview with our son, Rev Andrew Fitzgerald, at Canterbury Central Baptist Church, featuring reflections from Les Moir.
As well as teaching Woodwind at Norwich School (where I also co-direct the Senior School`s Jazz Band & Saxology - an exciting Saxophone ensemble), NCYM & Norfolk Music Hub I offer Private Tuition to pupils in the City of Norwich and surrounding region of Norfolk & Suffolk.
Through the excellent platforms now available (such as Zoom or Skype) I now offer lessons to Pupils throughout the UK and many other Countries throughout the World.
I offer tuition on the following instruments: Alto, Tenor & Soprano Saxophones, Flute, Piccolo, Clarinet, Piano & Music Theory (for some pupils to assist preparation for ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) examinations. I instruct & assist pupils to prepare for both Classical & Jazz ABRSM examinations.
I also assist and prepare pupils for Trinity College London examinations (Classical & Jazz).
Lessons are usually 30 minutes in duration. My teaching diary is in accordance with the Norfolk County Council UK school term dates but I do offer occasional lesson days during holiday breaks.
Following many years as a Professional Musician I regard it a privilege to now teach music and to pass on to my pupils all that I have learned & experienced from a life of study and professional musical application. Above all, it is my hope and indeed my prayer that I might assist each pupil to discover their own voice and true potential in their own musical journey.
Over the years of teaching here in Norfolk it has been highly rewarding to assist pupils on to higher musical study (at leading Music Schools & Universities) and to then witness their progression into a professional career in music, as performers and as music teachers also. Many of my pupils (if not most) play an active role within the musical life of their school and are members numerous ensembles throughout Norfolk.
My pupils have been awarded places at the following Academies & Conservatoires: Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Royal Academy of Music, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, RNCM & Trinity Laban (for Classical as well as Jazz Programmes of Study) as well as Youth Programmes within the National Youth Jazz Collective, National Youth Jazz Orchestra and Aldeburgh Young Musicians.
I am pleased to be part of the excellent Music Teaching team here in Norfolk - at Norwich School, NCYM (Norfolk Centre for Young Musicians) and the Norfolk Music Service. NCYM is a Saturday Music School here in the City of Norwich (one of of only five CYM Music Academies here in the UK directed by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, one of the world`s leading Conservatoires).
In addition to individual lessons I also direct Jazz & Saxophone Ensembles at Norwich School & NCYM.
