Private Saxophone Teacher

The saxophone is an amazing instrument! The saxophone is unique because it blends the sound of a brass instrument with the use of woodwind keys. I am so excited to teach you more about the saxophone. I am an interactive teacher who can assist you in many ways in regards to learning how to play the saxophone including; correct posture, new breathing techniques, correct fingerings, alternative fingerings, improved sight-reading skills, greater music theory knowledge, and performance skills. I recommend using the Essential Elements for Band book series. Once we connect and I can find out more about your playing level we can find the perfect book for your. I can't wait to work with you :)

One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.

He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

Students start with the Rubank book for Saxophone. Later we will add the Universal Sax method and move all the way up to Ferling Studies, along the way we learn to sight read and our scales. We work on both classical Sax solos and on jazz, learning to improv.

I'm a 52 year-old with no music background and today was my first virtual alto sax lesson with Randall. I must admit that I was very intimidated at first and didn't think that I would be able to get the most out of this virtual learning experience. However, Randall made me very comfortable and quickly got me relaxed as if he were right there with me in my living room. We began by him showing me the do's and don'ts of putting my horn together (especially the mouthpiece), fingering, and creating the sound I wanted. I was impressed because he taught me about 5 to 6 notes in this initial session. To be honest I didn't even think that I would've been able to get a note out but I did. Although I didn't want my first saxophone lesson to be virtual, I can confidently say that I will continue my sessions with Randall and highly recommend his services.

As a group Clarinet and Flute teacher with Youth Orchestra of St. Luke's, Thomas Giles created an engaging and inspiring music learning curriculum for his students. At each recital all of his students were able to introduce themselves, the piece they have learned, and a bit of history or commentary to go along. Throughout online learning Dr. Giles continued a supportive and creative environment, even through zoom, where each of his students composed and performed their own piece. If you are looking for your student to come away from lessons with a high level of ability and confidence on their instrument look no further than Dr. Giles, they will have the added bonus of learning important skills such as public speaking and presenting. They may even take away some composition and arranging skills!

"I took lessons from Andrew for about 9 months. I’m an adult non-professional sax player who just wanted to continue to learn and work on improvisation. I felt the lessons were really well tailored to my situation and goals. Andrew recognized what my existing playing level was, including where I had some weaknesses. I improved a lot over a short period of time, and stretched my abilities in jazz improvisation. We did a lot of tune learning, transcription and ear training. Andrew is skilled at piano as well, so it was helpful when he would play chords and progressions on piano and have me work over the top of it to give me time to hear and experiment with feedback."
