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 can often be found out walking with the dog (repeatedly throwing a tennis ball) or wearing wellies and being knee deep in the garden veg plot. Other pleasures include cooking, baking, and attempting to spread a little joy to those around.
Keri has works (original compositions) 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, ABRSM and London College of Music.
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).
