What are three things you enjoy about your playing and what are three things you wish were improved? I ask this question of each student so we can customize YOUR lessons and practice sessions. I love to see my students grow and learn what fuels their passion for music and we will develop exercises and songs that fit your interests.

Our son Charles started taking lessons with Alex Sadnik when he was in 6th grade, and he is now going to be a senior in high school. It was in -home until the pandemic last year. After changing to him, Charles made tremendous progress quickly. Alex is a terrific teacher. He has patience , and is encouraging. He would often spend part of the lesson playing together with him, which was helpful. He would also allow Charles to choose some of the music he was interested in learning.
We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants to learn Saxophone or flute . You won’t be disappointed!!
Naomi
Thank you Alex for being such a great teacher, musician and mentor. My son has enjoyed playing and learning saxophone under your guidance for the past five years.
We are happy that the transition from in person to online lessons has been seamless. We find it helpful that you review his prerecorded music/practice clips ahead of time so that lessons are spent giving feedback on what is most important. We appreciate the extra effort and thought you put into planning each lesson as well as your customized worksheets. We value your professionalism, commitment, positivity and encouragement in his musical journey.

My son has been studying with Mr Thomas for 5 years! He is a very talented musician/teacher and I’ve seen such progress in my sons playing over the years. He has helped him write his own pieces and prepped him for his orchestra performances. “Mr. Thomas is really fun to play music with and you learn a lot. He even helped me with transcribing a video game soundtrack that I loved into my recital piece”! We highly recommend Mr. Thomas!
Eunice
My son took clarinet lessons in-person and then transitioned to online when COVID happened. He tried piano and violin before but clarinet is the first instrument that Micah was super excited about. He learned and improved so much with the one on one instruction with Thomas. He says clarinet is his passion now and looks forward to every lesson. I recommend Thomas to teach your child. He is patient, kind and can find ways to motivate kids to play at their best.
Elizabeth Fryer
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 am new to playing the flute, self-taught for 8 months. Cooper is very personable and I think he spotted my weaknesses quickly. He was very encouraging and gave me a mixture of exercises working on the beginnings of listening and playing with another musician as well as fingering. He is going to get some theory in as well, so that’s hitting all of what is essential for me to move forward.

Cooper is kind and encoraging and helped my son work through a difficult audition piece. He really related well with my son and made him feel proud of his abilities and skills. I would be glad to recommend Cooper.

"Well worth the time and money

Dave was able to meet me where I was and move me toward the goals I had. As as an adult learner, I went in with zero experience with the saxophone but a clear picture of what I wanted to play and somewhat how I wanted to sound. Dave has a great set-up where we have privacy to make noise (sax's aren't known for being quiet). He's able to pluck things out on the piano quickly or to pull something up on the computer or just play. I went from starting out, to wanting to play a few songs, to improvising. Dave has been very helpful and ultimately keeps me improving and moving forward. I've taken other lessons on other instruments, but I will say this is one of the better teachers I have had. He listens well and is able to articulate what he wants you to do --- not trying to be a guru, but more of a guide that keeps you on track."

"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."
