Marcus R. Austin, TX

I've played everything from classical to jazz to rock on the sax and I want to help you do the same! With beginning sax lessons, we'll start with the essential elements books and then move onto various suzuki etudes and improvisation/theory based exercises. A great skill to have with the saxophone is the ability to switch between sax instruments and I try to teach students to have this type of versatility. I also try to help students learn how the sax interacts with regards to transposition with other instruments which is a really great skill to learn.

About Marcus

I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later.

I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well.

While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in ...

Marcus is great! I have been working with him for over three months. I am 37 and did not consider myself to be a musician at all when I started working with Marcus. I set a personal goal to learn to play something, and I can do that now. Marcus is friendly, communicates well, adapts to my learning style and pace, and has been really patient in helping me learn the basics.

He has been super-flexible with scheduling. I was a little apprehensive about going to a stranger's home, but it's not weird at all. His place is comfortable and inviting.

Excellent instructor-Highly recommended

Marcus has been an excellent instructor. He is friendly, patient, and professional. He does a great job of explaining concepts. If I need to reschedule a lesson he is always willing to work with whatever times are best for me.

He is very knowledgeable about different music styles and bands.

At our first lesson, he asked if I had any music I was specifically interested in learning. I appreciated his focus on making the lessons more personal instead of just following the instruction book.
Rob B. Austin, TX

About Rob

I have been playing guitar since August 1992. I cut my teeth on the alternative music that was popular at the time (Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Nirvana) but soon began to focus on earlier movements, specifically the playing styles and mindsets of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. I formed a band in 1996 and began gigging in Austin and throughout Texas. During this time, I immersed myself in jazz and did everything I could to bring the sonic palettes of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis into my playing, even taking up saxophone and piano in order to better understand what they were doing.

I eventually moved back to my home town of Lubbock, where I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BA in English with a minor in Music, having played guitar ...

I learned a lot in a short amount of time

Rob is an incredible guitar player who also has the ability to teach others what he knows. He taught me exactly what I requested and then some... in a very short period of time. I'd highly recommend Rob to anyone wanting to learn to play or simply needing to improve. He's great.

Matt M. Austin, TX

About Matt

Matt M. was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and found an interest in music as soon as his mom started playing songs through her belly with headphones and a record player. He moved down to Austin, Texas at the age of three where he continued to experiment with toy pianos and banging pots and pans.

At ten years old he discovered an enthusiasm for guitar and saxophone. Picking up those instruments for a couple of years brought him to playing drum set, jamming with his brother and friends, and listening to all sorts of music. His experience advanced in High School as he enjoyed playing in the jazz band, performing at different venues, and catching concerts.

When he graduated from High School, Matt decided to pursue his devotion towards music and enrolled in The University of North ...

Andrew M. Austin, TX

I've been playing saxophone since I was 10 years old and mostly perform on tenor and baritone. Whatever style you'd like to master, I can help you get there.

About Andrew

The first time I started teaching, it was in the hallway outside the band hall in my junior year of high school, giving some pointers to an enthusiastic young freshman who wanted to learn a few cool "licks" to play on his alto saxophone.

As a lifelong musician and writer, I've been teaching quite a bit since then. At the University of North Texas, I spent my college years playing in bands, teaching music lessons and working as editor of the student newspaper.

Since then, I spent another four years gigging as a saxophone and keyboard player in Austin while simultaneously working full-time as a journalist and editor for local newspapers. My experience has taught me how much I enjoy experiencing those joyous moments of realization among my students and staff, whether ...
