I have a broad understanding of music. I am well versed in saxophone, jazz, music theory, composition, and arranging. Aside from my experience in all these fields, I have a curriculum that offers students a skill tree. The skill tree both cleary documents what students has learned and what the next steps are in the student's path. This also gives students choices in their education. I am all about students being able to provide their own input into their education. My job is to set expectations and guide students through their musical path.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been playing alto saxophone (jazz and ensemble) for 13 years! The saxophone is one of the most beautiful sounding instruments and is worth the learn. I want to share my saxophone knowledge with those who are looking to take on a new hobby or relearn. It is important to not only know how the basics and fundamental keys to saxophone playing progress, but also understand the history behind the instrument as it will give the student much more appreciation for what he/she is learning. I am excited and cannot wait to meet you and teach!

About Hunter

Elia was my clarinet teacher for a year in Montreal. I have to say, I miss her since she moved back to NYC.
She has vast musical experience and is an excellent teacher.
She's been really helping me shape my music and my musicality with technique work and working on pieces that I really enjoy.
She is very supportive, she doesn't make you feel bad about your mistake and really help you to correct them.

Elia is a wonderful and talented instructor and i can only highly recommend her.
Chialing P.
I have been studying with Elia for the past year. I had trouble with rhythm and she went out of her way to bring exercises to me. She also teaches me on how to have a good tone. She is patient and I highly recommend her!
Neil
This was my first clarinet lesson for ten years, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to accompany me. Elia was friendly, enthusiastic, and quick to figure out what I need and understand what I want to achieve. I look forward to having a lot of fun rediscovering the clarinet in our subsequent lessons.

""Now that I'm studying with Mike, the efficiency of my practice time is way, way up."

Mike is the first coach who emphasizes "practice the hard parts". So much so that any time a note comes out either not in rhythm, not in pitch, or not a great sound, I have the confidence to stop and repeat the hard part until it's no longer hard. Even when learning to improvise, if the notes I pick on the sax don't match the ones I first heard in my head, I have the confidence to stop and really find those notes that my mind imagined. Eventually I'll be able to hit the ones I intend the first time. He also advocates to always know the purpose of any practicing you're doing---there's no more aimless noodling. Even when I'm jamming, there's a specific goal in mind.

The second thing I really get from Mike is that he expects me to know what notes I'm playing and what role they fill in the key. Formerly my method of improvising was to hunt and peck, occasionally hitting notes outside the key and finding a way to "work them back in". But now, if I'm riffing on the note F in the key of B-flat, Mike wants me to know that that's the 5 of the key. And to also know where the 3 and 7 are---like a home base where you know it's safe to play."

"Mike has been working with my 12 year old son to improve his sax skills over the last 4 months. They have virtual lessons for 30-45 minutes once per week. I'm absolutely amazed by my son's progress and newfound excitement for playing the sax. Mike has done so much to help him improve his skills and confidence! My son says he feels like he's improved so much and learned some great techniques. He says Mike is patient and "really knows his stuff and taught me some cool jazz stuff too!" I would definitely recommend him! Thanks Mike!"
