BA(Hons) Music
2019 — 2022

Ezekiel is a classically-trained saxophonist with experience in various ensemble settings of different genres, including solo performances. He has been learning the saxophone from the age of nine, achieving both ABRSM Saxophone and Theory Grade 8.

Since 2019, Ezekiel has been teaching adults and children in various genres including pop and jazz. He also taught as a band instructor at Pathlight — a school for autistic students. Being primarily self-taught, Ezekiel’s musical journey and struggles have allowed him to have a deeper understanding of the saxophone, and draw upon various resources and experimentation techniques to strengthen his craft.

Ezekiel has been exploring classical music improvisation and composition as a means of better understanding the link between the human psyche and emotions with musical performance and perception. He believes this can help achieve stronger immersion in our music and deeper reflection on one’s musical performance.
