Rick was professional, intuitive, and taught what I needed to learn, and NOT some preplanned generic lesson. I highly recommend him and I rarely recommend anything.

Online Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone playing has been a part of my life from as early as remember. My father was a jazz saxophonist and this inadvertently led me toward a similar path. I have been playing professionally since the age of 18 and play gigs every week in the set coast area. I have studied with some of the best saxophone teachers on the planet at Berklee, and constantly draw on information they passed along to me when expressing my style of teaching. I think people automatically assume that if you play saxophone you must play jazz, but I feel that there are so many stylistic opportunities with this flexible instrument. i've managed to play on gigs of all genres with what I know and the approach I take to playing. In my lessons I like to focus on fundamentals but then on how such fundamentals can be applied to different playing situations. From the beginner to Immediate player I really try to focus on sound quality and production, finger technique, time, articulation, theory and building a ...

What a great experience I’ve had taking lessons from Cameron over the years. Not only is so kind hearted and organized but he knows his stuff and is an amazing player/teacher. With him I learned how to improve my sound production/embouchure, technique, time and overall musicality. He explains it all so well! I’d highly recommend. Thanks Cam!!

5 stars!! Cameron is not only a very talented player, but a great instructor. He created a personalized lesson for me and my goals. Cameron is knowledgeable, patient and inspiring. I would recommend him again and again!!!

Do you want to play what is known as the coolest woodwind out there? Move aside, oboe!

During a Corinne saxophone lesson, you will learn how to create beautiful sounds first and foremost. If at first you sound like a goose, fear not! A little bit of time with me will go a long way.

Once you are producing some quality saxophone sounds, we will move on to learning notes, reading music, and accomplishing your goals!

Aside from perfecting saxophone technique, we will also work on musicality and listening skills! These skills are important in bringing music to life.

If you already know how to play the saxophone, I will continue your education in whatever direction you would like to go.

I look forward to working with you!

Kathryn
If you're looking for a true 5-star teacher, you've come to the right place. Corinne is encouraging, friendly, and methodical, never letting the small details in my playing pass me by. She is a very clear communicator and knows exactly what to say to advance my performance skills quickly. Outside of lessons, I know she is always practicing to become a better musician herself -- one of my favorite qualities in a teacher. I always have a great time with Corinne. Highly recommend!
Clara
Corinne takes the time to understand where the student is in their learning process and instruct to the appropriate level. She is patient and gives clear instruction and practice techniques. Yea!!

"I really enjoyed my class with Anthony. I am a beginner on the saxophone. Being a beginner, I was a bit intimidated before the class. However, all intimidation was gone once Anthony logged on and began to teach. He was very patient and his lessons are engaging. He came to the lesson prepared (not all teachers do). He is definitely knowledgable and a pro in the subject area and his teaching style is very effective. I came away from the lesson feeling like I really learned a lot. Thanks to Anthony, I feel like I will definitely be able to master my instrument. I highly recommend him."

"I am an adult student that just recently decided to take up playing the saxophone. I made a good choice with Ian. He is a very skilled player and instructor. I immediately became very confident in Ian's instructions and information he shared with me. He was very willing to take the time to respond to my many questions, which I really appreciated. And his curriculum was not based on some beginning student workbook, but instead, was geared towards real-life playing and preparation. Working with Ian has been a very positive experience. Thank-you."

""Cool, amazing, fun, and I don't know what else" said my 9 year old son who has taken 4 weekly beginner lessons with Carl. "Carl will go at your own pace. He gives advice and will do a duet if you want him to with you. He is a great saxophone player."

We had to set up our home computer for web chat, but it seems to work very well and we can definitely hear my son's improvement week to week (he just started playing this fall). Carl is very patient and will send you music files and links that he thinks will help your student. Overall four thumbs up from the student and his (non-saxophone playing) parent."
