*** Lesson Details ***
Members of my studio are always at the top of their game. With a mix of challenging material, effective practice techniques, and a great deal of fun, I push my students to help create their own musical paths. For beginners, I equally emphasize fundamental pedagogy, music theory, and artistry, in a variety of musical styles. They learn correct breath control, posture, and sound production to facilitate good habits to last a life time. After 6 months, my students have always improved 10-fold, exhibiting confidence on performing, self-evaluation, and independent musical discovery.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room equipped with music stand, keyboard, instrument stands, metronome/tuner, computer for recording and listening, and other resources.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my instrument and certain copies of exercises. Students should have their own instrument, music, pencil, music stand, etc. Metronome and tuner preferred. Voice students must have a keyboard or piano.
*** Specialties ***
Gordon method-sound before sight, learning to hear music and create a beautiful sound and using reading and theory skills to enhance musical growth.
Chamber Music-learning to play with accuracy and nuance and learn musical roles in various pieces of literature.
Regular Warm-up/Technique Practice- establishing routines for students to focus on development of their voices or instruments in addition to the performance based literature, may include tone exercises, scales/arpeggios/chords, dexterity exercises, breathing, etudes, etc. Includes lots of pedagogical knowledge so students can have very focused at-home practice
Recording- lessons and practice sessions can be valuable to a student for self-evaluation and getting the most out of lessons to really hear what a teacher is suggesting after the fact.
Duets and other ensemble playing in the lesson to give the student to relax and not feel under pressure.

I have studied trumpet with Classical ( Wilmer Wise)and Jazz musician (Bill Hardman) and big band arranging with Frank Foster( saxophonist and arranger with Count Basie Band). At present I am retired and teaching privately.
I have been teaching music for over 50 years as well as being a professional musician/ composer and arranger. I not only know my fundamentals inside and out, but also I know many tricks of the trade. Over the years I have developed special teaching techniques that enable students to make sense out of music and progress rapidly on their instruments.I love playing music and aim at stirring that same kind of excitement abut music in my students.
To each lesson I bring a unique mix, encouraging the student to pursue excellence and also have fun. I am well qualified to teach: woodwinds( oboe, flute, clarinet, all saxophones) brass(french horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba), and piano.
*** Lesson Details ***
I make music interesting to learn. I encourage students to practice daily so they can improve. The more they improve the more fun they can have with music not only alone, but with others.
I am very patient with my students especially with beginners. I know that for them it is like learning a new language. Once they begin to increase their musical vocabulary, they will enjoy what they can do with music.

Hi! I'm a full time saxophone and guitar teacher, 29 years old, and I've been teaching for over a decade. I have a BA in saxophone performance.
I've helped many of my students get accepted into county/state level honor bands and college music programs. One of my students was accepted into the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. At the same time, I love teaching beginners. Everyone is welcome! I'll gladly cater our lesson to any age and any skill level.
I usually teach at Union Music on Market street.

Anthony is a Bay Area classical saxophonist and educator. Currently pursuing a B.M. of Music Education with Dr. Dale Wolford at San Jose State University, Anthony's former teachers include Dr. Tim McAllister, Professor of saxophone at Northwestern University and to whom John Adams's acclaimed Saxophone Concerto was dedicated, Matthew Schlomer, saxophone coordinator at Interlochen Arts Academy, as well as Greg Conway, Director of Music at Hopkins Jr. High School, and Jeff Prinz, long-established Bay Area gig musician and educator.
Anthony has been active in the chamber music community for many years. Last year he co-founded the Saxophone Ensemble at Hopkins Jr. High Summer Music Camp as well at the Mission San Jose Saxophone Quartet with his long-time collaborator and friend Khanh Nguyen, who is currently pursuing a B.M. in Saxophone Performance at the Eastman School of Music. Last year he coordinated a series of summer concerts with members of his school to help young musicians learn valuable performance skills, working with his long-time collaborator the award-winning L.A. composer and pianist Thomas Feng to provide a pianist and his local church as a performance venue for his colleagues. This is a continuation of the work he did in his high school club MSJ Impromptu, scheduling concerts at senior centers to both provide students with a fun, non-judgmental environment to perform and to reach out to the community which supported him for so many years. He is currently Chorister for SJSU's chapter of Mu Phi Epsilon, the international professional music fraternity, for whom he currently manages all ensembles and performances and acts as general artistic adviser.
I center my lessons based upon three fundamentals of performance, which form a three-legged stool: Tone, technique, and depth of expression. Without any of these a performance will fall flat, but with all of these components together guarantee a successful.
The most important aspect of musicianship to me is discipline. Without regular practice, musicianship cannot fully develop to a level to be able to move an audience. I believe in treating all students equally. As Dr. McAllister stated eloquently to me, there is no such thing as a prodigy, only people who work hard, and work smart. As such, I care deeply about every one of my students; I do not choose favorites. I understand that every student has their own needs and time commitments, and try to help every student to become the best musician they can be.
Above all, I wish to guide your student to be the most thoughtful, active, engaged musician they can be. I will provide ample performance opportunities, artistic insight based upon years of experience, and will work with your student for however long they wish to guide them on their path to greatness, whether that is a couple months or throughout their high school career.
Lessons are taught out of my studio in the Kimber Park neighborhood of the Mission area, walking distance from several bus stops and easily accessible by car. I will also drive a reasonable distance to teach lessons in your home, if you so please. I will be available throughout the year, so I look forward to developing an ongoing relationship with your student!
While I pride myself upon being strictly a classical saxophone specialist, with an emphasis in chamber music, I can also help students who are preparing for their college auditions, and teach basic AP Level music theory.
I look forward to meeting your student, and helping them become the best musician they can be!
I'd love to have a few more students to build my studio in the Bay Area! I currently play Alto Saxophone with the San Francisco Wind Ensemble. I sing and conduct choir at church, and play clarinet with ensembles from time to time. I have my Bachelor in Music Education and I've taught at both the middle school and high school levels. I currently have saxophone, flute, and clarinet students and am looking for more!
I studied Saxophone at BYU with Dr. Ray Smith, who is a pupil of Eugene Rousseau, arguably the best classical saxophonist of our time. And I played in countless large and small ensembles there. I know I can be a great music teacher for you, focusing on the basics and making sure proper technique and musicality is always addressed. I strive to help each individual student with their needs. I will challenge you, but we ll be sure to move at your own pace. I feel my years of experience playing and teaching build a great foundation for me to be your best private music teacher. We'll focus on appropriate repertoire, technique, and work toward yearly recitals.
Why should I choose you as my saxophone teacher in San Mateo?
I have nearly 2 decades of experience playing saxophone. I graduated from BYU with my bachelors in music education and saxophone. I had my teaching credentials in UT as well. I have taught at both middle school and high school levels. I play at the professional level with the San Francisco Wind Ensemble.
Do you have references?
I can give you references when you contact me. I also had my teaching credentials in UT so I went through all of the clearance for that as well.
