Private Saxophone Teacher

Hello! I have over 25 years of professional saxophone and clarinet playing experience. I've played and recorded many different styles with many different bands, orchestras, and jazz ensembles.

I teach clarinet and saxophone on all levels. I can teach beginners the basics of fingering, tone, music reading, theory, etc. I can help intermediate students advance in their playing prowess. I can get adults who haven't played in a while back into playing shape. And, for more advanced students, I can teach jazz improvisation. So, I cater my teaching to your desires and goals!

I'm able to teach adults and teenagers (age 12 and up) and I'm open to any frequency that fits your budget and desires (once a week, once every two weeks, twice a week, etc.).

I've played clarinet and sax for over 40 years, playing throughout grammar school, high school, and college. I attended University of California at Berkeley where I played in the marching band and in various jazz bands, orchestras, and ensembles. After graduating I've played professionally ever sinc

My lessons are always student-specific. That means I change my approach depending on the needs of each individual person I teach. I've been teaching instrumental music both privately and in public schools for over a decade. I have two degrees in music, one in education and the other in Jazz performance. I love to play. If you are serious about learning how to play and understanding what you are doing on the saxophone then contact me.

Thanks
