I have been teaching saxophone for 5 years. I believe that the best starting point is classical music, and from there my students can choose whether to continue studying classical or to explore jazz and improvisation. I always tailor my teaching methods to suit you, to make learning as fun and as effective as possible. How you feel is as important as how you sound!
I believe that learning an instrument has to be engaging and fun, first of all. Even the biggest musicians in the world ultimately play because they like to. When I teach, my first priority is to help my students enjoy themselves and find interest in their instrument, and I truly believe that that is where the best music comes from. I studied music at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, and I have played clarinet, saxophone and flute in musical theaters across Israel and in numerous musical productions.
