I have been teaching saxophone for nearly thirty years, and offer a different approach to the instrument. While building strong technique and tone in your band and solo music, we will explore how the saxophone is used in music from around the world, including traditions that pre-date the saxophone itself by many centuries! While learning the basics of music theory, I also encourage playing by ear, and unleashing curiosity and creativity.

Great learning experience with Eric.

I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

Great experience! Looking forward to more.

"I got a free Alto Sax from a former coworker, and after several years of not having played Clarinet, I felt I could use some guidance from an awesome woodwind doubler like Eric.

The convenient part for me was that he's one of my good friends! I can say both as a student and a friend that Eric is a consummate professional, and is incredibly qualified to teach students of any level how to play the Saxophone. If I had 1/3rd of the Sax chops that Eric has, I'd be gigging right now."
