John O'Neill

Musician Teacher Author


I am best known as the author of educational books for saxophone, clarinet and flute, including the best-selling ‘Jazz Method For Saxophone’ (published by Schott). I play many different styles of music, specialising in jazz and bossa nova, and  have performed with some of the finest musicians in British jazz and world music at many of London’s leading venues, including Ronnie Scott’s. I have also worked as a composer, arranger and musical director for film, television, theatre and dance.

I am a qualified teacher with nearly thirty years experience in many different settings, including schools, summer schools, and workshops both in the UK and abroad. I also give private lessons in saxophone, clarinet, flute and improvisation from my North London home.
