An Evening with Graham Kendrick
Welcome to my website. As a seasoned professional player and composer of music for saxophones, flutes and woodwind instruments, and now teacher of Woodwind Lessons via Skype (or Zoom) to pupils of woodwind instruments all around the world, I am happy to pass on my skills to many new students.
Skype and Zoom, particularly during the Lockdown period but probably for a long time afterwards, are very effective platforms to continue to teach woodwind lessons to pupils at home and my pupils have adjusted amazingly well to this new style of learning.
It is a delight to help to inspire a whole new generation of woodwind pupils and also students of my other instruments, such as the Saxophone, flutes and piano, and see them disovering their higher musical potential. Many of my students have gone on to successful careers in music either performing writing or teaching.
As a registered and full member of the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians) and the Musicians Union my experience and performances with woodwind, flutes and Saxophones are documented on my pages here.
To make the most of your woodwind lessons via Skype or Zoom at home, please set up your phone, tablet (or laptop) in a quiet corner about 10 minutes before the meeting to ensure that we can start on time and can see each other clearly.
I was associated for many years with BBC TV`s Songs of Praise and have performed both nationally and internationally with many other artists and groups, notably the Christian Celtic fusion band IONA, but also with collaborations with Dave Bainbridge and Adrian Snell which give me great pleasure to look back on. I have also many solo projects - my full Discography can be found here and I continue to write and produce as well as teaching lessons via Skype and Zoom and once again to teach at my schools and organisations in Norfolk, UK, once the Covid crisis is over and done with.
I have many other musical links, but especially for the last 20 years I have been a visiting piano teacher at Norwich School, Notre Dame High School and Notre Dame Preparatory School in Norfolk and I assist with preparing music for School services in the school chapel and Norwich Cathedral.
The Norwich School, the Norfolk Centre for Young Musicians (NCYM) is where I am based and I also am involved with the Norfolk Music Hub (Norfolk County Music Services). It is also mmy pleasure to be an Adjudicator at the annual Eisteddfod celebration of song, dance and music in Llangollen, North Wales.
If you would like to continue your studies with your woodwind lessons via Skype or Zoom, please contact me, David Fitzgerald, here.
