Gillian holds various teaching posts around the North of England. She is a Saxophone and Chamber Music Tutor for the Junior Royal Northern College of Music, and has previously been a Saxophone Tutor at the Universities of Sheffield and Huddersfield. She is Head of Woodwind at Holy Cross College in Bury, Woodwind Teacher at Rishworth School and she also tutors on the Harrogate Saxophone Summer School.


In March 2019 Gillian gave a recital and masterclass tour in the USA with colleague Nathan Mertens. They visited universities in Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma. One university professor wrote: 

“Nathan  and Gillian presented a wonderful musical collaboration for my saxophone studio...their masterclass was intuitive, informative and inspiring and encouraged the students to perform at a much higher level. They truly “feel” the music and made us feel it too.  I hope to host them again in the near future!”

She has run workshops at events including the RNCM Saxophone Day, Chester Festival Saxophone Day, Berkshire Maestros, Wolverhampton Music Service, Lincolnshire Music Service, Piccadilly Symphony Orchestra workshop series and RNCM Young Saxes, as well as being an artist for Yehudi Menuhin's 'Live Music Now' scheme.
