Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been teaching saxophone for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

I have 3 earned degrees

Ricardo really helped me perform so much better. I got the lead chair I really wanted. Ricardo showed me ways to make my practice time super effective so my performance skills could grow in leaps. I will use his techniques for the rest of my life now. I cannot thank him enough.

Chelsea was very patient and listened to my concerns. She had material ready for me to play and was very kind when she corrected me. She always found something I did right even when I made mistakes. Very good teacher!
Karen
Chelsea did a great job at our first lesson! She was patient and encouraging. She gave my daughter good suggestions on how she could improve and things to try in areas she was struggling. My daughter felt so much better after the lesson. We will continue to take lessons with Chelsea
Reed
We sent music to Chelsea in advance and she was able to help my son with the difficult parts of his music. The time was well spent and she explained things well. We look forward to our next lesson and working with her over the next month to help him catch up.

About Lance

Ever been told that you’re "a little pitchy," or that you “just need to give it more support?” Tips like these often leave people frustrated because they don’t actually give anyone a plan for improvement. In my lessons we will focus on real, specific issues, and make sure you have a great plan for

What I appreciate the most about coach Lance is his ability to explain the science behind our voices and how we can control or manipulate our airway to hit certain notes/pitch. Although I am just a beginner, I am super excited to see how far I can go with Lance as my coach!
Robert H.
Helped ease my nerves and was able to play a G scale. Feel much more comfortable about practicing now

Lance really opens your eyes to different techniques that you would’ve never thought of that make a HUGE difference. Lesson was amazing and I can’t wait to continue working with him. Very comfortable atmosphere also. Loved it!

Online Saxophone Teacher

For over more than 20 years I have had many successful students, who have enjoyed playing and studying with me. Teaching is a life-giver for me--I enjoy introducing students to the joys of different musical ideas, concepts, and ways that they can advance on their instrument. Things that I have enjoyed learning and playing over the years, that I can pass on to them to explore and enjoy. I hold both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Music, and have taught as an adjunct on the college level, high school, and privately. On the college level, I have taught clarinet, saxophone, and flute at three colleges, a Woodwind Methods class for five years, developed jazz ensembles, and developed and procured music for woodwind trios and saxophone quartets.

I have played professionally in these settings; jazz, symphonic, pit orchestra, and general business entertainment freelance as a woodwinds specialist.

"Lisa is trying to teach a senior on how to play again. I very rarely stick to what Lisa has set up for me to practice. Unlike youthful players we are not following a lesson book or books. But she is patient with me and we get along great and best of all i actually think i am doing better than i expected.
My guess would be that this is my third renewal."
