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.
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 Austin, ...
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 ...
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 ...

I've taught saxophone and clarinet lessons for over three years, working with over 50 students with ages ranging from 8 to 50+. My goal in teaching private lessons is to help my students excel at their instrument, learn about, and enjoy everything that learning to play music has to offer. I want to make lessons fun, engaging, and showing you how to get better at your instrument. My students have been placed in various honor bands at their schools and communities, as well excelled in their school programs. I received my bachelor's degree from Kennesaw State University in saxophone performance in 2013, and I'm currently enrolled at UT Austin getting my master's degree in jazz composition.
I love the saxophone!… And the saxophone loves me (most of the time!). I have been playing classical saxophone for almost 10 years… While I'm relatively young, I've had an immense amount of performance experience including solo, chamber and ensemble playing. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music degree with majors in Music Education and Saxophone Performance. I'm all about the fundamentals. They are the building blocks of your playing.
Hi everyone!… I'm Javier. I have been playing the saxophone (classically) for about 10 years. I am currently in my third year of studies at the Butler School of Music (at the University of Texas at Austin) where I'm pursuing a Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Education and Saxophone Performance. I have played in several university ensembles and have a wide scope of experience as a performer. I played in small chamber groups (including saxophone quartets), large wind ensembles and even in an orchestra. I currently study saxophone with Dr. Stephen Page and I'm a member of the UT Saxophone Studio. Along with rigorous performance training, I study in the Music and Human Learning department where I learn techniques and approaches to teaching students such as yourself! I can't wait to meet you
