So far, I've loved all of my classes with Sergio. His teaching style with photography fits my needs perfectly.

I like Sergio because he is very laid back and super funny. He fits incredibly well with my learning style and pace and I always enjoy our lessons. I was immediately able to pick up things I had previously struggled with upon taking his classes and have really enjoyed myself. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Sergio to anyone looking to start playing saxophone.

Esther
My son, who is 14yr, loved working with Shelbey, as his saxophone teacher. He played in the middle school band and needed a private teacher. Shelbey inspired him with her warm enthusiasm and incredible knowledge. She was able to help him learn to play this challenging instrument, even though he wore braces and would struggle to make clear sounds. Shelbey’s technical knowledge of the saxophone was so impressive and really helped my son improve. During my son’s performance at the school, it was clear that he had the edge over the other students, as his sound was beautiful. We appreciated that Shelbey would take time to get to know our son and care for him as a person. Shelbey is an amazing teacher, we love her!!

I also incorporate the study of music theory and the study of music fundamentals in my lessons. I have experience teaching the genres of classical, jazz, modern, folk, and pop music and hope to extend the joy of learning music to my students as well as help them grow and gain confidence in order to bring on-going fulfillment to their musical experience.

Why do you want to play saxophone? Are you a beginner and want to learn it for school? Looking for a new hobby? Want to get into the state band? Or maybe you're looking for something more serious? Whatever your goal may be, I am here to help :)

I have a very detailed curriculum that my students go through. I pick studies that will help push you to being a better player. These include both jazz and classical saxophone. I also like having my students pick a piece they want to work on at the same time!

I am a beginner saxophone player and Stephen's lesson has been really good for me. He is able to pace his lessons based on my needs and I really like how he assigns practice material to work on before our next lesson. We always start off each lesson with reviewing the practice material and he always gives me detailed feedback and is really patient even if I was not able to master the practice material. He also lets me bring songs I want to learn and guides me through it. I look forward to our lessons every week. I would recommend Stephen to anyone who is looking to get better at playing saxophone.

He is always positive and provides very constructive feedback to my 11 year old son to help him improve his playing. We are very pleased! (and my son is very comfortable with his teaching style...
