About David
I have been a working musician and occasional private music teacher for over 40 years. During that time I had a career in the professional audio and video industry, during which I learned how to successfully deal with people. I recently returned to school and completed a Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree at CSU Sacramento. My goal is to bring excitement and enthusiasm for music and playing an instrument to my students, and to create musicians who will make and enjoy music throughout their lives. I play guitar, bass guitar and flute, and enjoy teaching all of them to all age groups.

*** Lesson Details ***
Playing music is supposed to be fun. Lessons include playing, so they should be fun as well. My lessons are both focused and fun. I believe you get out of music what you put in. If a student doesn't practice in between lesso
ns, I will know. If a student does practice, I will know that as well. My lessons stress not only what to practice, but how. In 3-6 months, the beginning student can expect to be able to make a pleasing sound on the instrument, and be able to play beginning repertoire. Most importantly, the student will be able to play well enough to enjoy the instrument, which inevitably leads to more productive practice and continued improvement. This continued improvement is what lessons are all about.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I travel to a student's home, I will bring my instrument only. I expect the student to provide all other equipment necessary for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Folk guitar, rock and roll and blues bass, classical flute, analog and digital recording, music theory

About Sue
Learning the flute is a great way to explore your creativity. Flute is the one wind instrument with amazing versatility and expression. It is as comfortable in an orchestra as a jazz band.

Do you or a child you know want to learn how to play flute, recorder, baroque flute, or even piccolo? I love to teach and can help you on your or your child's path to further your music education.

I began playing the flute when I was 10 and started teaching while I was still a high school student. I started playing flute professionally as a teenager and now I have over 30 years of experience in teaching and performing.

I teach students of all ages. I specialize in personalized, tailored instruction with a strong commitment to making the process of learning music simple and straightforward. Each student has a unique learning style and I work
with each student within their style. Your lessons are designed for YOU, whether beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Your lesson pace, curriculum, and progress are based on your strengths and learning style.

I am by vocation a musician specializing in performing and teaching flute. I have taught flute and played professionally in the greater Sacramento area, as well as in SLC, Utah and Reno, NV.

Sue is a really great teacher for a number of reasons. Her comprehensive approach to teaching a beginner (me) helps me grasp necessary basics while also glimpsing the possibilities in my musical future. Even though I have taken flute lessons before, Sue was able to show me connections between scales and notes in our first few lessons that I did not know. She is full of good exercises and demonstrations to help you better understand everything you would want to know about your instrument of choice or music in general. She strikes a very good balance between simple tips that are easily applied and big picture concepts that the student may take a long time to fully appreciate and master. This is a teacher who will facilitate rapid progress but also keep you excited about that which you have not yet learned.

Let's talk about your goals soon!

About Dave
I started Sax Lessons San Diego last summer. SLSD is an excellent and affordable woodwinds studio in the east county where I can pass along the knowledge I’ve gained over years of playing sax and clarinet. I’ve been fortunate to perform with Darryl Johnson from the Neville Brothers, Wild Child’s Dave Madden, the legendary Robert Cowan from the Taj Mahal band, Chet Cannon’s Committee, Bobby Detroit, Blackcherry Lightning, the Shenanigans, and my own Texas blues-New Orleans funk band, The Goods. I’ve studied music with Nathan East, Hollis Gentry III, Carl Evans, and more.

It is that richness of experience that I bring to each and every student.

At Sax Lessons San Diego, I teach all levels of jazz, concert band, blues, soul, and rock. Individual and group. Centrally located in La Mesa, just a few minutes from SDSU, Lake Murray, or the
Stadium. Plenty of free parking. Parents are encouraged to sit in during lessons.

My own teaching experience includes post-secondary, SDSU’s College of Extended Studies, private lessons at two of San Diego’s largest music retailers, and facilitator of woodwind master classes at Grossmont and Valhalla High Schools. I am experienced with preschoolers to high school school-age children, nervous adult beginners, and special needs students.

Winner of the 2017 Outstanding Musician Award at Bloomsburg University, Steph is excited to teach students of all ages who want to improve their playing! She wants to help students learn and improve their fundamentals: tone, articulation, sight-reading, posture, etc. She would also be delighted to teach a student who is an absolute beginner! We will work out of flute methods books, etude books, and/or specific repertoire picked by the student.

About Steph
Hello! My name is Steph and I can't wait to hear you play! I will absolutely enjoy teaching you regardless of your age or playing ability. :)

Beginner students: We will mostly work on pieces out of Kathy Blocki's flute method books as well as exercises composed by myself to make sure your fundamentals are solid from the beginning. Plan on learning new notes and rhythms each lesson as well as having scale and playing assignments. You will learn a lot each week while having a super awesome time :)

Intermediate students: We will be working on honing the fundamentals (tone, technique, articulation) through various etudes and intermediate solo pieces, depending on playing level. Vibrato will be introduced as well as phrasing, breathing, and everyone's favorite: intonation! Weekly assignments will include memorizing scales and preparing a
ll pieces covered in lessons. Prepare to take notes and laugh frequently at my jokes!

Early-Advanced students: We will learn about body awareness and work on playing without tension. We will work on developing tone colors (warm, sweet, bright, hollow, etc.), developing technique through daily exercises, as well as further developing the fundamentals. We will work on repertoire for your auditions, more advanced solo pieces, etudes, and technical exercises. Weekly assignments will include practicing at least 45 minutes per day to have material fully prepared for the lesson. You will get really good at taking notes!

Always remember: You will get out of lessons what you put into them! The magic always happens during practice. The more you practice, the more I am able to teach you, and the better you will play!

A little bit about myself, I recently graduated Summa Cum Laude with Honors from Bloomsburg University with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Music, where I focused on flute performance. While at Bloomsburg, I taught private lessons to college-age students who were beginners to intermediate flutists. I have studied many major classical works as well as modern works with extended techniques. I was principal chair of Bloomsburg University's Wind Ensemble and Concert Band for three years, and I was actively involved in our New Music Ensemble. I would love to help you improve your playing and I truly can't wait to teach you :)
