Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that.

All students will be coached on proper technique, posture, scales, arpeggios, and etudes depending on skill level as these are all the important fundamentals of playing. Not every lesson will include all of these points in great detail, but some lessons could focus only on these details if need be. The student's personal repertoire is the main study of every lesson with which I can offer coaching in bowings, technique, and interpretation.

Mark is a smart, talented, and highly responsive teacher. His knowledge of the material (jazz piano) is evident, as is his skill. Every lesson he encourages me to reach out with additional questions or ask for additional resources, and he's quick to provide a lead sheet or hand-written notes explaining music theory. He explains concepts well, is patient, and encouraging. I think of Mark as a guide to help me on my musical journey, and he's been a wonderful guide (at a great price).

Mark is a good teacher. Very patient and friendly with students.

Accommodating, professional, easy-going.
Marley
Very natural in working with my two kids (with two very different personalities, I might add). They’re at different experience levels and Ms. W. was able to adapt easily and determine what each needed to grow in their individual musical ability. She sets high expectations in the most authentically positive way that makes my kids want to do their best. Very pleased that we found her. My oldest is already talking about going to music school “just like Ms. W!” She knows her stuff and is a breath of fresh air—very affordable and flexible with her schedule, too.
Linnie
The best of both worlds, Olivia teaches with patience and enthusiasm, and also with focus and skilled technicality. My child has a revived love for playing music and it is without a doubt because of Olivia’s commitment to making practicing and excelling in music a natural joy and not an obligation. As a parent, that speaks volumes!
