Clip #27 (Freddie Freeloader) Analysis of Miles Davis' Solo on Freddie Freeloader

"Lessons with Buster are very inspiring, he makes you feel that anything is possible and he gives you the tools to set you up to try. When he is teaching you can tell he wants the very best for you. He always has interesting and varied material and he moves at a pace to suit your skill level. His experience and patience ensures that every lesson will be both enjoyable and rewarding. I have had some terrific lessons with him at workshops and will definitely be signing up for some of his online teaching."

Ann - tenor saxophone

 

“I met Buster for the first time at one of his jazz workshops which I attended to develop my chromatic harmonica skills to include some jazz numbers into my performances. This was a new experience for me and as a first-timer I found Buster to be an extremely good teacher, with clear explanations and demonstrations of the scales and note progressions, for the tune we were learning that day. He was very encouraging to all the attendees, whatever their level of experience”

Ross Jacques - chromatic harmonica

 

"I have been going to Buster’s workshop sessions for some time now and his teaching skills are brilliant.  He somehow makes what is seemingly complicated, understandable and simple and, more to the point, as a saxophone player, his teaching gets the music coming out of my horn - no mean feat!  His knowledge of jazz is encyclopaedic and gives us students great understanding of how the music we are working on is constructed and developed by whichever jazz master we are studying.  Every workshop or lesson he gives is underpinned by clear, straightforward teaching materials. Buster is able to accommodate with great patience, whatever level a student is at and is very encouraging and supportive.  He also has a great sense of humour and an inexhaustible fund of stories and jokes!  I am definitely going to continue my musical learning during this period of “social distancing” with Buster’s online lessons.  Can’t recommend him highly enough!"

Lorrie Benwell - tenor sax

 

"I have had the pleasure of attending many of Buster's workshops. He explains jazz theory really well and his enthusiasm is infectious. I always come away feeling I've learnt a great deal - and had a lot of fun in the process."

Matt Male - tenor saxophone and flute

 

"Buster’s many years of professional playing and teaching all ages, make him a superb teacher. Whatever your abilities or difficulties, he has great techniques for progressing your skills and knowledge. His love and enthusiasm for music and music education combine with kindness, humour and patience to make every lesson a great experience."

Ian Rowe - guitar and piano

 

"I have been attending Buster's jazz workshops for a few years and was hooked from the start.  Buster is friendly and approachable and is able to support and coach a group of really mixed ability and personalities. He ensures that every student takes away something to work on and has had an uplifting and positive experience. Buster is unfailingly enthusiastic about his subject and communicates this to the whole group. His sessions have been the most enjoyable and useful I have been privileged to attend since I started to try jazz."

Wendy - piano
