Jefrey B. Brooklyn, NY

I've been playing sax for 16 years now with a focus on blues and rock. My strength is TONE! Getting a strong sound so the world can hear your music! I play tenor mainly but also play alto and soprano.

About Jefrey

I am a working multi instrumentalist here in Brooklyn, New York. I've played guitar and bass for 33 years now and have been playing saxophone now for that last 16 1/2 of those lovely years. Most of my gigs are saxophone gigs now and I love that though I do love to play my strings too! I'm largely self taught though have had the good fortune to study with some terrific players including Tim Price. I have a lot to offer a beginning student and my focus is on improvisation be it blues, jazz, rock n roll or whatever freaky style you can dream up! My approach is relaxed, fun and supportive. We'll laugh a lot while we play our horns together! Fun is essential to music and life, that's the vibe!!!

Guitar · In studio
I took guitar lessons with Jef a few years ago at his shop. He was always a very patient and attentive teacher. He also asked me a lot of questions about what kind of music I was interested in playing, what aspects of a particular style were interesting to me. There was one very memorable lesson when he had picked out some records he thought would relate to what I was learning and played them for me. We listened and talked about them and then played some more. Jef's teaching was well rounded and very enriching. More than just improving technically, I was encouraged to figure out what aspects of the instrument I related to most, and thereby was able to develop my own sense of style.

Jef is a fantastic music instructor--period! Jef is one of those rare individuals who is an amazing creative artist AND teacher. Learning from Jef is a beautiful experience--he couldn't be more a more genuine and down to earth person and he has a wonderful gift to be able to impart musical skills and concepts to his students in a way that is unique and individual to each of his pupils. I've had the privilege of studying with Jef for a number of years and can't recommend him highly enough to anyone interested in pursuing Guitar, Bass Guitar or Saxophone instruction. It doesn't matter what your skill level is, you will learn and grow with this guy. He's a seasoned veteran performing and recording musician in many different styles and he knows how to connect with his students. Like a doctor, he diagnoses each student and situation and prescribes just the right medicine to make things move in the right direction. Look no further people, study music with Jef and you'll be happy you did!!!
Matt L. Brooklyn, NY

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are children and adolescents who are looking to pursue music when they go to college or auditioning for state and regional band programs. Many of my students are very busy adults who are either looking to pick up an instrument for the first time as an ...

Excellence!

Matt La Von is the epitome of a great teacher. He is patient, allowing you to understand things on your own time. His instruction is clear and easy to understand and his knowledge of music seems to be endless. Above all else he is an accomplished musician and I trust that under his watchful eye I will be able to improve and refine my own abilities.
Andres B. New York, NY

Lessons are adjusted to the goals we set together with you. Its not about the amount of time you have to practice every day, its all about quality of the time spent practicing and of course continuity. Based on these two premises positive results can be almost guaranteed, no matter talent or age !

About Andres

Depending on the instrument and body built starting age may vary. For flute and clarinet around nine years old, both male and females. For saxophone, again based on body built, starting age would be around ten/eleven years old.

Saxophone · In studio
Hello, my name is Rodney James and I've been a student of Chase at the Juilliard Music Advancement Program for two years. During my time with Chase, I have improved tremendously on my improvisation, technique, and fundamentals on the saxophone. Chase is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable teachers I have ever studied under. The learning process with Chase is very easy and comprehensive because he breaks everything down to the bare roots. He treats all his students with respect and is a very supportive person in general. If you're looking to improve exceedingly on the saxophone, then you're at the right place.
