Keri Degg is a teacher, musician, and composer based in Derbyshire, UK. She is genuinely passionate about teaching, individual learning styles, and exploring the expressive side of music. She runs a busy private teaching practice from Hilcote Community Centre, Derbyshire, and performs as and when time allows as a soloist and also with Equinox Saxophone Ensemble.
Over the years she has come to specialise in teaching adult learners (many of the students have only taken up their instrument after retirement), and enjoys building confidence (which then often improves other areas of life), and enjoyment of playing (as opposed to just ploughing down the traditional examination route; although this is also fine should the student wish it). She also runs the relaxed Wayward Winds group every fortnight to encourage players to gain confidence in group playing, whilst also learning with humour (and usually cake too!).
She is committed to playing as part of the worship team at Junction 28 Church, South Normanton, and improvising worship is a big passion. This is another area of specialism in her teaching, and guidance can be sought on how to transcribe (work out the notes for) worship song harmonies, methods to add solos, and flow with the varied styles.
Keri has works (original compositions, and also arrangements) published by Spartan Press, and Masquerade music , and a number of pieces now appear on the Graded Examination syllabi (jazz woodwind, and standard woodwind) for Trinity College London.
Please browse the website, read the many reviews, and feel free to contact me through the contact page (regarding woodwind lessons or other music related work).
