Biography

Keri was born in 1975 in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, UK. She remembers having a deep love of music from being very small and has happy memories of participating in school ensembles as a recorder player, and in the school choir. She took up the Clarinet aged around 13, and the Saxophone (now her main instrument), and Flute years later at the age of 23.
 
Motivation, and a thirst for music and all the rewards it reaps, propelled her to achieve her grade 8 ABRSM exams on Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone, and Flute, later adding DipABRSM in Clarinet teaching (with distinction), and DipABRSM Saxophone performance to the collection. She also enjoys playing the piano (mostly in an accompanying role) but this is for her own indulgence, and as a reminder of the frustrations of learning a new instrument; helping her to empathise with her own student's struggles. She runs a busy teaching practice, with students of a variety of ages, aspirations, and walks of life. 
 
Also a keen Composer, Keri enjoys writing music in different styles and some of her music appears on the current exam syllabus for Trinity College London (Jazz Woodwind syllabus,  Songs for Claire on grade 4, and Ballade on the grade 7 Saxophone lists). Her music is currently published by Spartan Press, and Masquerade Music. See a full list of her music via the Sheet music page.
 
Although performing often has to take a back seat due to time issues, she is a member of Equinox Saxophone Ensemble who play regularly around the UK and have performed at the St Andrews World Saxophone Congress back in 2012, and are due to perform at the Strasbourg World Saxophone Congress in July this year.
