The saxophone can be one of the funnest instruments to play, no questions asked! In order to reach that point it's important to have certain things in order such as: sound production, breath support, musicality, and technique. In lessons use a variety of exercises and method/etude books, playing duets together, as well as listening and ear training to give my students a well rounded approach to the saxophone and music helping them to become the best musician they can be.

Bill is the real deal! The reviews were dead on. Bill is a superstar instructor. He is energetic, engaging, and an amazing teacher who knows the instrument. You will make great progress. I highly recommend him!
Charles H.
Bill has a competent, easy manner that makes learning an enjoyable experience.
Micah
I started with Bill almost two years ago and I was at about zero on the piano. He's helped me reach the point where I can play some standards and even improvise a little over them, and I look forward to improving even more. We began in person but the transition to remote lessons has been seamless.

Bill is patient, attentive, and a whole lot of fun to work with. He has a positive attitude and a great sense of humor, and he backs it up with strong motivational skills to keep you practicing and putting in the work to reach your goals.

Oh, and of course, he's got some incredible chops! He's a talented multi-instrumentalist and a beast on the saxophone. His love of music and knowledge of jazz is sure to rub off on you.

With 10 years of training and experience I am able to help students reach their potential, no matter what level they start at. I have received training from Nina Yelisheva, Marcia Swanson and Lucy Davis among others.
I am trained in classical, musical theatre and jazz singing. From the age of 14 I have been trained through a groundbreaking Italian voice technique that will help students expand their vocal range, gain confidence in their singing abilities and learn to control their voice.

Q&A:

Q.: Do you teach bi-weekly lessons?

A.: No, I do not give bi-weekly lessons, and require all of my students to take at least 4 lessons a month to be able to join my studio.

Q.: What happens if I miss a lesson?

A.: My studio policy is that all of my students are required to give me an at least 24-hour notice if they will be missing their lesson for any reason with the exception of illness or family emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to reschedule the lesson for the ...

I've been teaching Music Performance for three years and have experience performing in several professional musicals. The curriculum I use is based on the wealth of music in my personal music library that is available for students to use. Students are also welcome to bring in their own sheet music. My teaching philosophy is content-based. I like to demonstrate the songs for students, and then let them fly with their own ideas.

I already sent in a review. I was very happy with my first lesson.
Abbey
Corinne is a wonderful teacher! She is patient and has such a positive energy. I always leave my lesson feeling better than when I came in. She's very knowledgeable and wants the best for all her students. She can teach any age! I'm a 25 year old beginner and thought it would be difficult to learn and keep up with playing the piano, but Corinne supports and inspires me. I can't recommend Corinne enough.
Vanessa
I have been wanting to play an instrument for such a long time, but never had the motivation to try it, until recently. Wanting to play Piano was a spur of the moment decision for me. I googled piano teachers in my area and Corinne was one of the first people to pop up. After reading all her rave reviews, I decided to give it a go. I was so nervous for my first lesson, but she made me feel comfortable and at ease the minute I walked through the door. She is educated and passionate about music. Also, she is extremely patient. I have been going to her for Piano Lessons now once a week for almost 6 months and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend Corinne. She's amazing!

Clare could not be more supportive, patient, and willing to facilitate changes to schedules. If you are new to this instrument, or already proficient, you will have a nice experience under her instruction. I am an adult student, and I have unique challenges. She has accommodated me in a way that has motivated me to write this review without her asking me. That should tell you something.
Layla
Clare is not only a wonderful oboist but a wonderful oboe teacher. She takes the time to put technique first which made a huge difference in my playing. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher!

Clare is a wonderful oboist who plays with emotion and that same energy transfers into her teaching.

Lianne helped me prepare for an audition for the Metropolitan Opera Chorus. She not only helped me fix some vocal things I was doing that I was unaware of, she also helped me with the emotional and theatrical portrayal of the character. Lianne is a highly trained and skilled singer, actor, and performer, and that all carries over into her teaching. Highly recommend.
John H.
I have worked with Lianne off and on over a period of four years, and I give her the absolute highest recommendation! She singlehandedly changed my singing: within the first two lessons, I had fixed problems that had stunted my progress for years and gave me a new understanding of what it meant to truly relax while performing. She is knowledgeable, kind, and funny, but she'll also hold you to a standard and push you to succeed. You will not regret a moment of the time you spend with her!
