Private Saxophone Teacher

Experienced teacher of 6 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so that students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of saxophone skills. I specialize in classical performance and typically use Standard of Excellence or Accent on Achievement band method books.

About Mikaela

Music teacher looking to keep busy working with bright young students eager to improve or begin their musical endeavors!

I have a Bachelor of Music degree from San Jose State University in Music Education and have taught private lessons for over 10 years. I have also recently completed the teaching credential program in Music and teach Kindergarten through 8th grade Music for the Pioneer Union School District. Currently, I play with the Roseville Community Band. I have played the clarinet for 20 years, played with the San Jose State Wind Ensemble for 4, and studied with Dr. Janet Averett while attending SJSU. What I learned from her about teaching is invaluable, I hope to be the inspiration and encouragement to my students that she was to me. I hope to encourage them to express themselves as well teach them good practice skills. Less

ons with me will focus on not just the technical aspect to playing their instrument but the creative/expressive aspect to playing music on any instrument. After all, playing an instrument is about making MUSIC!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to provide for themselves their instrument, a music stand, and chair. They should also have the music they are working on at school if they have some.

I've been with Mikaela for the past 2 to 3 years, and she's been a wonderful instructor since. I started learning with her after playing the clarinet for about 3 years already- my skills on the clarinet have definitely improved tremendously, and the lessons have given me an edge in all my musical experiences. In addition to being a skillful clarinetist and teacher, she's also very supportive, caring, flexible schedule-wise, and has helped me grow my love for playing and music in general. She has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and try new, scary things (auditions, competitions, etc) that have definitely helped me grow as a musician and a person. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a boost in skill, a great teacher, and a wonderful experience. :)

Aaron has really inspired my son to pick up the Sax again after a six month hiatus. Aaron pushes him musically and challenges him daily on scale work, music theory and song performance. I could not be happier.

I have been taking soprano saxophone lessons with Aaron for about 8.5 months now. Aaron is enthusiastic, energetic and knowledgeable. His serious training shines through and he encourages your development along the lines that the student desires. Your musical goals become his for you. I am fortunate to have him as my teacher.

In addition, I direct elementary school bands. I am currently working toward earning a teaching credential and I hope to continue teaching professionally.

As a former "band kid," I am familiar with the ins and outs of playing in all kinds of school bands such as marching band, concert band, and jazz band.
As a teacher, I like to teach good habits as well as musicianship. My goal is to help students become better players and musicians, so that they have the skills necessary to take on new musical endeavors. I also have experience in bilingual education for K-12 students. This also means I have passed background checks for the state and school districts.

I have been playing music in one way or another for over the past 20 years. Saxophone has been my main instrument for the majority of this time. I began playing in middle school and continued playing throughout high school and college. I have marched with the Million Dollar Band and played in several jazz bands.
With my experience, I can help teach you to read music as well as teach beginner saxophone technique. If you're ready to learn, let's get to it!
