About Natsuki
Hello Students/Parents:

I have been playing saxophone for 18 years and currently I am playing professionally in the Los Angeles area. I have been teaching music for more than 8 years and have been able to find fun and creative methods for helping my students succeed.

I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan and surrounded by a musical family. I started playing piano at age 4 and started playing saxophone at age 10. I continued my woodwind training in high school by learning to play flute and clarinet. After beginning saxophone, I found I had a passion for big band jazz music. I joined a big band for young musicians and played lead alto with the band for almost 6 years.

After graduating from high school, I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston on scholarship where I studied performance and jazz composition. While I was in Bost
on, I was fortunate to play lots of gigs around town and was also a featured soloist on a number of recitals, recordings, and film scores.

In May 2010, I graduated from Berklee College of Music and moved to Los Angeles. Always maintaining a busy schedule, I have been performing with a number of talented musicians at several venues in the LA area. In addition to playing live shows, I have been recording for film/TV music.

I love all kinds of music: Classical, Pop, Jazz, Rock etc…
Some of my favorite artists/influences include:
Cannonball Adderley, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and many more

Thank you so much for stopping by my page and hope to work with you soon!

Best,
Natsuki

*** Lesson Details ***
I am experienced in most styles: Jazz, Pop, Classical, Latin, R&B, Funk, Rock etc…
After discussing your goals, we will figure out the best way to accomplish those goals!

I am a really easy-going person and I want you to have FUN and discover new stuff every time you play your instrument.

After we figure out what you want to play and what areas we want to work on, I will make a special curriculum for you! Each student has a different curriculum that is specific to his or her level and learning style. I give a weekly curriculum after every lesson so you don’t need to worry about forgetting what we worked on at our lesson and you can work on it at home. Looking at past curriculum also provides an excellent way to look at a student’s progress.

One of the most important aspects of playing a woodwind instrument is achieving a good tone. I will help you get a good tone by teaching the fundamentals: from how to hold your instrument, how to blow, etc…

Other topics that we might cover include sight-reading, improvisation, theory, ear training, etc.

You are welcome to bring/suggest any music that you want to work on!

My studio is in a safe and nice family friendly neighborhood as you can see in the photos.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Kawai Grand Piano
Music Playback System

Exceptional Teacher

Natsuki is extremely patient with my 9 yr old daughter who is a beginning clarinet player.
I would recommend Natsuki to anyone from beginner to professional.
After a few lessons my daughter had the courage to play a solo piece at her school holiday concert.

All levels, all ages, various styles including: Jazz, classic, contemporary/commercial music

About Fernando
Hello there! My name is Fernando, and I bring lots of profession playing and teaching experience to the table. I am an active musician in several local bands of various styles and genres, including jazz bands, Latin jazz bands, sax quartets, church groups, and musicals. I have played across southern California, several other states including Nevada (Reno Jazz Festival), Portugal, and Mexico.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education, from CSUF. I also hold a valid California Teaching Credential, which I completed through CSUF. I also hold an Associate of Arts degree in Music from Fullerton College. I am also currently working on my Master's Degree in Music Conducting.

I am the Instrumental and Choral Music Teacher at Buena Park Jr. High School, in the city of Buena Park, where I teach band, orchestra, percussion
, and choir.

I have also taught woodwinds for various high schools across southern California, as well as a marching/visual coach for marching bands.

I front and lead my own Christian Contemporary Band. We've recorded two albums, of which I have composed the original music/lyrics, and produced both albums. We are currently working on our third album.

I can teach everything from jazz, to classical, rock, blues, Latin genres (salsa, merengue, bolero, mambo, etc.), and even contemporary Christian music in both English and Spanish.

I mix all of these experiences and knowledge into a big melting pot, and apply it very efficiently and wisely so that my students can positively benefit from a wonderful and exciting real-world musical journey!

*** Lesson Details ***
I base my lessons around the student's needs for musical growth, and their own likes and dislikes. If there is something specific that the student wants to learn, as far as a style/genre or piece of music, I foster that and I help encourage musical growth and enjoyment around that.
I am constantly encouraging my students to listen to as much music as possible, or better yet, to watch and listen to as much live music as possible. I strongly believe that this nurtures musical growth and serves as a role model.
I am very patient and laid back, but I do expect the student to have fun while staying constant with individual practice. There is no substitution for perseverance, consistency, and hard work, but it doesn't mean that we will not have fun while we make music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
An upright Yamaha acoustic piano is available, along with a Korg and Kurzweil digital keyboards, music stands, computer music software for studying repertoire (music), a large collection/library of books containing scales, exercises, music, etc. I also can make copies or print something for you if necessary. A sound system is available for listening to something is necessary. Flute, saxophone, and clarinet students must provide their own instrument, but I can point you in the right direction in terms of acquiring an instrument either for purchase or rental from a local music retail store.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must provide their own instrument, except piano if student comes to my home for lessons. Student must also provide books (as assigned), and metronome for practicing at home. I can carry with me things such as: saxophone, clarinet, flute, a portable music stand, metronome/tunes, pencil, paper, and any other book(s) or materials as needed.  

*** Specialties ***
I can teach classical, jazz/contemporary, funk, latin, blues, contemporary Christian, improvisation and music theory at very advanced levels.

Seth is a good dude. I came across his profile with Take Lessons a month ago, after browsing through other instructors in my area and other schools in my area. He's got the experience and knowledge, so I connected with him for an initial lesson. It was a quick one to get introductions out of the way and a good idea of goals/direction. From there we further honed our plans for my instruction in an hour lesson and are directing our sights on my upcoming auditions. Seth has shown me through simple explanations of theory that his teaching style is very approachable, and additionally, was able to show me good technical skills on working my way around the horn, which is especially useful for someone like me in my twenties who already has a few bad habits (haha). Like I said, he's a good dude, good sense of humor so I feel at ease practicing with him and his knowledge is insane! Not only for saxophone but in so many other areas of music! You'd be doing yourself a favor to take at least an hour lesson from him and see how you go.

Seth and I had a great first lesson. I haven't played in a long time and he gave me helpful pointers on how to improve my embouchure. He gave me positive feedback on my rhythm and constructive feedback on my tone. We worked through some songs together. Next time I will probably ask him to play some more for me so I can hear what I need to improve for a particular song. I highly recommend him.

About Garrett
My name is Garrett. I am originally from Southern California where I grew up constantly around music. My mother being a pianist, I started at a young age. After a few years and a few different instruments, I fell in love with the Oboe. I was fortunate to have great teachers through middle school and high school and I ended up making my way to college on a Music Scholarship. Studying mainly classical music, I did have my chances to explore various genres and perform all over California as well as various cities in the US. I am very passionate and love to teach. I look forward to the possibility of teaching/coaching young or old musicians here in California.

My teaching starts with a good foundation for sound and technique and expands to teach music that is fin and inspiring to each individual student. If the student would like to learn to play jazz, I have a method which will shaves off years of hard work and frustration. All my teaching is geared towards giving the student good basics along with a practical application to today's music scene.

About Rick
I’ve always loved teaching from a young age; finding new ways to break down complex ideas and techniques and making it fun and easy is something that gives me a lot of satisfaction. If you want to play your favorite songs on saxophone, I can save you years of frustration and slow progress.

At the bottom of this page, I have a YouTube video of 3 of my sax students' incredibly fast progress. None of them had ever played saxophone, You can do that too! It’s easy and fun. No boring scales, exercises and dumb tunes. Just a simple, easy way to becoming a great sounding sax player in 1/10th the time. This method has worked for over 1000 students and works 100% of the time if you commit to practice.

I guarantee if you commit to practicing 30 minutes 5 days a week for 4 months and you don't see the success in the video I will give you ALL
of your money back. I have 3 Grammy nominations but the proof of what i can do for you is in this video. Search this title on Youtube:

Long Beach, CA

When students study with me, they can expect to learn in a patient, fun and challenging environment to the degree of the students capabilities. I like to focus on what I can see needs development but also integrate what the student wants as well. Generally at our first lesson, I will take inventory and set a goal plan that will map out our first round of lessons together.

As far as technical work goes, I generally stick to the standard etude and scale books. For beginning students I also work with building music reading skills while learning to play the instrument.

Depending on playing levels, lessons can consist of fundamental work, a solo piece and any ensemble music that may need attention. This can all be negotiated with student and or parent to best suit what they want to achieve with lessons.

About Jason
*available to travel and teach near my home location as well*

I have played Clarinet for 15 years, and taught for 2. Currently I am pursuing a Bachelors of Music in Performance at California State University-Long Beach. My previous instructors include Mr. Paul Bambach at the University of California-Santa Barbara, and Dr. David Lopez at Cerritos College. Currently I study with Dr. Michael Grego at CSULB.

Outside of Cal State Long Beach, I also am an active member of the Los Angeles Clarinet Choir.

Over the years of my own private instruction, I have been taught in manners which promote self analysis, the standard development of technique and control and keep the experience enjoyable and fun. This is a method I try to implement when teaching clarinet, or music theory to a student.

Mike taught me everything I know about playing the jazz saxophone. He came to every lesson with great energy and always made me excited about the music with novel ideas for exercises and just the right balance of fun and rudiments. I am not a professional musician, and may never rely on the saxophone for income, but Mike has given me a very deep and permanent appreciation for the music. Thanks to Mike, jazz and the saxophone will always be parts of my life. I cannot recommend him enough as an educator.

Students will receive private instruction from a former student of 3 master clarinetists, and will be able to learn various playing techniques to develop their skill and an excellent tone. I am always patient with students that need it, as the clarinet is a difficult instrument that doesn't always come easily.

About Troy
I am a second generation piano, clarinet and saxophone teacher. I was raised around music, and was taught piano and clarinet from a young age by my mother, a private music instructor of over 20 years. I have studied under three master clarinetists while in high school and college, and have performed with the prestigious Tacoma Youth Symphony. I have recently completed my degree in Business Management from Azusa Pacific University, and anticipate finishing my Music Performance degree next spring (having already completed all but a couple requirements).

I will make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. I have a warm personality, am extremely friendly, and will strive to get to know you.

I will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory and can also incorporate your favourite songs into your lessons (if there's any in particular that you would like to learn).

About Osvaldo
I've been playing clarinet for 16 years and have not stopped ever since. Music lessons was first introduced to me at the age of 8 by my godfather. He taught me basic music theory with the piano and trumpet. I gave up the trumpet at age 12 and moved on to the clarinet and played it in a community band named "Banda Juvenil Solaga, USA, Oaxaca."

By the time I made it to the university (CSULA), I began getting lessons from Helen G. Castro (She has and still is one of the best mentors I've ever gotten). I've performed 5 years with the Cal State LA Wind Ensemble under the conducting of Dr. Emily Moss (Another great mentor. She's one of the reasons why I decided to pursue a career in music education).

I've graduated in 2015, BM in the field of Music Education. Am still planning to pursue a Masters in Music Performance. But first, I still
have to save up.

I'm currently teaching in the Saturday Conservatory of Music and the New Life Vision Church. I'm private teaching as well; giving clarinet, saxophone, and oboe lessons.
