Saxophone Lessons with Ray Beavis in Exeter, UK


I’m a professional saxophonist with over 25 years of teaching experience. I’ve toured and recorded with numerous artistes such as: U2, The Clash, Cliff Richard, Suzi Quatro and Shakin’ Stevens.

I teach one to one lessons in Exeter, not far from The University and St. David’s Station, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9.30am until 6.45pm. Each hour lesson costs £30 and it’s advisable for you to attend regular weekly or fortnightly lessons to best develop your playing. However you’re welcome to book one off lessons “as and when” if you prefer.

First and foremost I want you to enjoy your lessons and personal practise, so lessons will progress at a rate which is manageable and comfortable for you. All styles and aspects of playing are covered, including:

  • Saxophone technique
  • Scales and Exercises
  • Reading Skills
  • Duets
  • Rhythm
  • Theory
  • Improvisation

I also assist players with band projects, ensemble playing or soloing.

Lessons are tailored to suit the individual, whether a complete beginner or a more accomplished player seeking inspiration, new ideas or specific techniques. I frequently use audio accompaniment during my lessons which is then made available to you for practise purposes.
