Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

Maureen is patient, always willing to answer questions and encouraging. She makes you want to try harder!

He was very helpful in setting me up for my first lesson.
Yah D.
Wow! Wow! Wow! This was truly money and time well spent. I went into this lesson with no expectations, rather just with the hope of connecting well with a piano instructor that was not only well versed but could ease me into being a student. Paul is a rare treasure. He exceeded all my hopes of what I hoped to gain from my lessons. I would highly recommend him for any piano student. If you're looking to be challenged, and learn any genre of music,, don't wait...book your lessons with Paul. Thank you Paul. I'm looking forward to growing as a student.

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.

Private Saxophone Teacher

I offer a complete and in-depth understanding of how to play the saxophone for students of any skill level. I have a degree in Jazz Saxophone from the highly acclaimed Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, and am extremely experienced in many other instruments and genres. I have experience teaching in public schools as well as teaching privately, so I am used to nearly every possible situation. I specialize in catering my lessons to the specific goals of my students and take pride in creating an enjoyable environment for each individual!

My lessons focus on the basics and fundamentals of saxophone, in addition to:
- reading music
- improvisation and soloing
- ensemble and orchestral playing
- genre specific skills (such as growling, vibrato, tone, altissimo, etc.)

I think it's important to teach what the student wants to learn, so I am open to working on songs and pieces that aren't necessarily the norm for saxophonists!

About Christopher

Hey there, I'm Chris! I've been studying and playing multiple instruments since I was 3 years old, and have dedicated my life to creating and teaching the best music possible. My degree in Jazz Saxophone from the Frost School of Music provided me with a skill set I can now share with other ambitious

Chelsea was very patient and listened to my concerns. She had material ready for me to play and was very kind when she corrected me. She always found something I did right even when I made mistakes. Very good teacher!
Karen
Chelsea did a great job at our first lesson! She was patient and encouraging. She gave my daughter good suggestions on how she could improve and things to try in areas she was struggling. My daughter felt so much better after the lesson. We will continue to take lessons with Chelsea
Reed
We sent music to Chelsea in advance and she was able to help my son with the difficult parts of his music. The time was well spent and she explained things well. We look forward to our next lesson and working with her over the next month to help him catch up.

The saxophone is an amazing instrument! The saxophone is unique because it blends the sound of a brass instrument with the use of woodwind keys. I am so excited to teach you more about the saxophone. I am an interactive teacher who can assist you in many ways in regards to learning how to play the saxophone including; correct posture, new breathing techniques, correct fingerings, alternative fingerings, improved sight-reading skills, greater music theory knowledge, and performance skills. I recommend using the Essential Elements for Band book series. Once we connect and I can find out more about your playing level we can find the perfect book for your. I can't wait to work with you :)

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone is one of the easiest instruments to pick up, but one of the most difficult to refine. I specialize in getting you from that horrible honking noise that makes your family run in terror to a sweet singing melodic tone that has the subtlety of a fine oboe but with the power of a military trumpet.

Saxophone performance isn't interchangeable with clarinet or any other instrument so I'll introduce you to all the things that make saxophone unique: how to form the mouth around the mouthpiece, anchor tonguing for better control, and the different fingerings that make the saxophone one of the most versatile instruments in the world.

About Aaron

I was raised in one of those freaky music families. Dad was a composer/arranger/clarinetist and Mom was an expert flutist. There was a saxophone lying around the house unused so I decided that I would play that. I took the approach many of you are on right now: learning the basics in middle schoo
