I figure out exactly where you are in your technique and knowledge of music and of the instrument. Then, I start teaching from there! For me, the goal of lessons should be the goal of the student, and I do my best to honor that while pushing my students to surpass those goals.

My ultimate aim, is to provide you with an approach to practicing and performing music, that keeps you wanting to go back to do more.

In my career, I primarily play the tenor and baritone saxophones, but I mostly teach alto, and play soprano sometimes. Additionally, I also play the clarinet, bass clarinet, flute and piccolo. With this experience, I help out a lot of my more advanced saxophone students with doubling on these instruments, so they can be prepared for college and the professional world.

I encourage my advanced Jr. High and High School students to audition for various honor groups throughout California and the country such as SCSBOA, CBDA, JBOA, etc. With my background in these groups, I ...

I've played sax for 19 years. I specialize in teaching improv and 'jamming' skills. The joy of music is found when you allow yourself to have fun and play from your spirit instead of your logical mind. I can assist with helping you get in the “zone”. 🎷

"I highly recommend Kendra as a woodwinds teacher! I'm back playing tenor sax after 40 years off, and wanted to get my technique back, and learn to express my musical ideas. Now I'm playing better than my high school days, and newly doing jazz solos.
Kendra is wonderfully, broadly trained, and very effective at working with me on everything from embouchure and fingerings to maximizing effectiveness of practice. She is ALWAYS upbeat, supportive, friendly, PATIENT, and helpful - and I've always looked forward to our lessons. She is very good at figuring out how to be helpful, and how to keep the joy in music even while working on technique, and at my request, music theory. I could not have enjoyed the experience more, or been more successful, than with Kendra."
