About Me

I have a BA in Music and have been a freelance performer for many years. My teachers have held the highest degrees in their field and some are professional performers. I've played in many different types of groups including: marching bands, concert bands, orchestras, chamber groups, and pit orchestras for theatrical performances. While my primary instrument is clarinet, I can double on any woodwind that doesn't have a double reed on it. My teaching specialty is single reeds (clarinets and saxes), but I'll gladly take on flute players and double reed players. Not only is doubling fun and helps you get more work, it can help you pinpoint strengths and weaknesses with your primary instrument. It can also tell you whether or not your primary instrument will stay the same or will change over time (there's nothing wrong with either option!).

Please bring your own instrument to your lesson (surprisingly, I've found that this isn't self-explanatory). I don't have any to loan out at this time. If you need help picking out an instrument (and perhaps a mouthpiece), please contact me and I'd more than happy to help. Also, please bring reeds, any music that you have, a tuner, and a metronome. If you can't bring a tuner or metronome to your lessons, I will have mine, but please purchase them as soon as possible (or download an app as many are available), so you can practice with them. Solid rhythm and intonation are key, especially for the beginning student; they help to build a great foundation in which to expand your playing.

My goal is to meet each student where he or she is at and find out what they want to accomplish. If the student has specific goals, then the entire process can be tailored to each individual. I do have standard material that I work with, but I also encourage students to bring in things that they want to play as well. For non-adult students, I encourage as much parental involvement as possible. Your parent(s)/guardian(s) is/are more than welcome to sit in on your lessons (if it's ok with you, that is). Things go much better if everyone is on the same page.

I strongly believe that any performer of music has to enjoy what they're doing in order to be successful and reach their full potential. If someone isn't playing with passion and doesn't like to play (or even want to), they can have the best technique in the world and play all of the notes on the page perfectly, but still not be making music. I truly believe that music comes from within. If you ever feel that you don't want to continue because you don't like making music, please let me know and we'll see what we can do to make it an enjoyable experience. I won't take it personally if you feel that music just isn't for you.

If your availability doesn't fit into what I have posted, please send me an e-mail and I will take each individual request into consideration. If I'm traveling within the Rochester area, you'll need to be on an RTS bus line (or within reasonable walking distance to a bus stop). I recently added some time in Canandaigua at a music studio. For this summer, that day is Tuesday. The day will change when school starts again, but I haven't figured that time out yet; it's looking like Monday at the moment. If you're interested in taking lessons in Canandaigua with me, please let me know ASAP so I can figure out scheduling that works for everybody (I carpool with the percussion teacher there).

Finally, if you have any special needs or disability concerns, don't let that deter you! Music is one of those universal things that can touch anybody's soul. I have worked with kids and young adults with special needs before (examples include epilepsy, autism spectrum disorders, and various physical and emotional challenges). Unfortunately, my apartment isn't wheelchair accessible, but depending on scheduling, I may be able to come to you. The Canandaigua studio is ADA compliant, so feel free to come see me there if it's convenient.

I hope that I can be your guide into this wonderful world! :)

Keith S. Fairport, NY

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Classical Guitar, Flute, Guitar, Music Theory, Oboe, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

I have a master's degree in musical education. My main instrument is guitar, and I have played in rock groups, studied classical guitar with a student of Pepe Romero, and am a solid blues player. Receiving my NYS teaching certificate has allowed me to teach band and lessons in public and private schools for twelve years. I have taught most band instruments in these settings, as well as a beginning guitar class and a guitar ensemble. In my younger years, and while in college studying music, I have developed great piano skills as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will cater to your musical taste while teaching technique and theory. You will be led through the skills of noted reading, chord fingerings, scale shapes and their application, while learning music you like in a structured lesson. I keep things laid back and humorous as lessons should be something to look forward to, not another chore.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Finished basement: guitars, chairs, stands, amps

Living room: piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide my own instrument, if I have the particular one, staff paper for writing anything down.

They would provide their instrument, any lesson books, instrument supplies (reeds, oils, etc.) and a stand (if at their house).

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: beg to adv
Piano and sax: beg to inter

I am a guitarist who specializes in rock and blues. I have classical guitar training at the college level. I have taught band methods for the past 10 years.

About Me

Christian D. has been playing saxophone for fourteen years. He attended Churchville-Chili High School and attempted to take every music class his school had to offer. He was always very involved in his school'¬¬ôs music program. He took private lessons with Mr. Terry Bacon (a graduate from Eastman School of Music) for eight years before going to college. He just completed his BM in Music Education and Saxophone Performance at SUNY Fredonia. There he studied classical with Dr. Wildy Zumwalt and jazz with Bruce Johnstone.
Christian has been in many elite bands since the start of his career as a musician. He has participated in the Roberts Wesleyan Honors Band, Hochstein School of Music Junior Wind Symphony, All-County Band, and New York Area All State band, as well as performing as a soloist for the All-County orchestra his junior year in high school.
Christian has received many awards to merit his efforts in music. Some of these include the Eastman Award given to high school juniors who plan to major in music and who excel above others in school. He also received a $200 scholarship for his jazz-playing ability from the Independence Jazz reunion.
At Fredonia, Christian was involved in everything the music program had to offer. He participated in major ensembles, a saxophone quartet, saxophone ensemble, a big band, and a jazz sax combo, in addition to his regular course load. He was a founding member of the Bogus on Temple Blues Band that actively played in the Fredonia area for a year and a half. He is also a member of the musical fraternity of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.

Now that his BM is completed, Christian is pursuing his Masters in Jazz performance at New Jersey City University. There he studies with Bob Malach and Joel Weiskopf. He is actively playing gigs in the New York City and suburban area while at school. When he is home he plays with Nik Entertainment Co. and other various groups in the Western New York area, including Night Trane, a jazz combo he helped found.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to cater my lessons to the students' wants and needs. I suggest various exercises to study in effort to make each student reach their fullest potential. I push each and every one of my students, regardless of their goals as a musician.
