"I have known John and worked with him in a variety of settings.  John is thoroughly professional in all that he does.  He is a most accomplished musician in a number of different areas, though he specialising in playing and teaching the trumpet, cornet and French horn.  As an educator, he is fully committed to ensuring that his students acquire the best possible technique in the very earliest stages of learning, to provide them with the firmest foundations for their musical futures.
John has produced a number of extremely talented and promising players at all stages of development.  Musically, he brings a great deal to every project with which he engages."

I am writing to give my strongest possible endorsement and recommendation of Mr John Durrant  as an inspiring teacher of brass instruments, either in a one-to-one situation or as a coach of brass ensembles.  Having worked with John  on several very enjoyable occasions I have had first-hand experience of his highly motivating teaching skills.   I am happy to recommend John Durrant without reservation.”
