Word on the Street

Patrick is an extraordinary musician whose technical prowess is such that the music is never compromised.....he can also sight-read everything!

Michael Csanyi-Wills Film Music Composer/Producer

Patrick Clahar is one of the U.K's finest saxophonists. His technical mastery is astonishing and his sound is warm and beautiful. He is respected and admired by his students for imbuing them with these qualities. Patrick instils awareness and confidence through his guidance and care which ensures his students always excel in exams and performance.

Sahana Gero M.B.E. Artistic Director World Heart Beat Music Academy

It is rare to find a musician of Patrick’s prodigious talent and profile who is also a great teacher.  Patrick has inspired, motivated, guided and supported my son, from his first tentative notes on the saxophone as ten year old, to achieving a place at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music to study Jazz.  What makes Patrick exceptional is that through music he teaches his students an approach to life in general which is rooted in dedication, collaboration and self belief.

Susan Chin Parent of Trinity Laban Conservatoire Alumnus

Patrick plays with a warmth, clarity and authority that accompanies a searing and searching musicality. His love of music shines through in everything he plays whether it be pop, RnB or jazz and always of the highest calibre.
He is my first call in all of my bands because he is quick,prepared, professional and uniquely creative on all woodwinds, especially his beloved tenor and soprano saxophones.

Julian Joseph O.B.E. Jazz musician, Composer, BBC Radio 3 Presenter
