My name is James Gregg and I am a recent graduate of the University of Leeds, where I studied BA Music. I have played the trumpet from the age of 6, and now at 22 enjoy playing trumpet across a whole range of genres including jazz/big band music, classical ensembles and pop/fusion bands. Having grown up myself through the Merton Music Foundation it is a pleasure to be working for them as a tutor, and I am very excited about this project that we have going on at St. Theresa’s!

Tom Early

Hi! My name is Tom and I’m the new djembe tutor at St. Teresa’s. I play all sorts of drums and percussion, from the drum kit, to Brazilian samba, to the African djembe that we’re learning together! Outside of school, I play a lot of jazz music and run two jazz clubs, The Ashtead Jazz Club in Ashtead and The Lantern Jazz Club in Raynes Park. Come along and hear us play sometime!

  1. Doing music in year4 has been fun my favorite instrument was the djembe and I think the hardest instrument was the trumpet as you have to blow really hard. I would recommend practicing at home and listening carefully to the teachers.


  2. i have really enjoyed playing instruments and i cannot wait to play our last instrument.


  3. I absolutely love having these lessons. The way they teach us is really cool and gives great education.
