Me and my 12-year-old son started saxophone two years ago together. Ian had a great guide to us who had never played the instrument. My growth is slow due to age issues, (of course satisfied) but my son's growth was great. My son now has a great deal of confidence as a jazz player, and he was able to work on other things positively too. We met Ian then became more into music and jazz. He is patient and will tell you until we can do. Ian is mainly jazz, but he is also very familiar with brass band and classical saxophone too. He is a working musician who do live performance, gig, and compose in various places. He loves music from the heart, his solo is so beatuiful. Ian's lessons has changed our life. We really grateful for giving us his time.

Do you want to play what is known as the coolest woodwind out there? Move aside, oboe!

During a Corinne saxophone lesson, you will learn how to create beautiful sounds first and foremost. If at first you sound like a goose, fear not! A little bit of time with me will go a long way.

Once you are producing some quality saxophone sounds, we will move on to learning notes, reading music, and accomplishing your goals!

Aside from perfecting saxophone technique, we will also work on musicality and listening skills! These skills are important in bringing music to life.

If you already know how to play the saxophone, I will continue your education in whatever direction you would like to go.

I look forward to working with you!

Anya was very happy with her first lesson!

If you're looking for a true 5-star teacher, you've come to the right place. Corinne is encouraging, friendly, and methodical, never letting the small details in my playing pass me by. She is a very clear communicator and knows exactly what to say to advance my performance skills quickly. Outside of lessons, I know she is always practicing to become a better musician herself -- one of my favorite qualities in a teacher. I always have a great time with Corinne. Highly recommend!
Clara
Corinne takes the time to understand where the student is in their learning process and instruct to the appropriate level. She is patient and gives clear instruction and practice techniques. Yea!!

"Frixos was a terrific teacher for my son (now 12) and my daughter (now 14). He worked with them once per week for about two years, when my son finished 5th grade and my daugher was finishing 6th grade. He helped my son get started and learn the alto sax from scratch, and helped get my daugher on track, and correct her many mistakes. In short, both my kids made the top band in middle school at the end of their 6th grade years. My daugher was the top alto sax in her middle school by middle of 7th grade, and my son by the end of 6th grade. The both had a blast with their instruments, and the worked with them on the scales, and playing various genres of music including jazz. Their understanding of music was far beyond most of their classes, and they enjoyed their class time with him, and got to know a person that spend their entire life and professional career in the music business. In addition to Alto Sax lessons, he worked with the kids to learn music studio tools and play keyboard. After two years, we had to stop the lessons, due to financial constraints, but Frixos was like family to us, and I would highly recommond him to anyone without hesitation. He's a great guy!"

Choosing a Neck Strap | How to Play Saxophone Tips
