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!

Rakeen
Some people might fare better with this instructor. More chatting than instructing. Usually telling stories trying to sell himself and talk about how great he is. Delusional ideas about your relationship. Accusatory. Takes things personally. Burns bridges. Claims to be a vocal therapist but doesn't do any vocal therapy. Can provide bad advice and medical information.
Jim
This was my first piano lesson in 50 years. It was everything I hoped it would be... intellectual, fun, relaxed... and it filled me with hope that I could finally make something out of a musical instrument I left in the dust so many years ago. Jimi is wonderful to talk with and work with. This was beyond my expectations.
Dan G.
I’m 80 years old and play sax in a Senior band. I signed up for several lessons with Jimi Z. to improve my tone and breathing. I think Jimi did a great job with me, and I recommend Jimi for sax lessons. Dan Ginsberg

Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been training on the saxophone for upwards of twelve years! I have been giving lessons since 2015, and I am qualified to teach beginner to advanced players. I've earned top chairs in my county, district, and state, and students of mine have gone on to do the same in their own ensembles! I have also played in select honors bands, such as the Great American Marching Band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am a skilled teacher, having served as a middle school teacher's assistant and summer camp music instructor. My prices are competitive because I simply want to share the joy of music with you or your student!

What to expect when you take lessons with me:

-Flexible scheduling
-A judgement-free, creative environment!
-A free PDF of the saxophone fundamentals workbook with which I teach, as a supplement to personalized lesson-planning.

(CANCELLATION POLICY: I will do my best to reschedule lessons with students if I am notified at least 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, the ...

Ashley helped me pass my high school French midterms! She made the material super easy to understand (even the impossibly difficult conjugations), and gave me a ton of confidence in myself.

Ashley was such a great help to me in my pursuit of acting! Her thoughtful yet kind approach made me feel at ease, and she taught me many helpful tools to improve my performance. I highly recommend you study with Ashley!

I have been thrilled with my lessons with Ashley! She is exceptionally skilled and makes me feel comfortable and encouraged. Acting can make one feel very vulnerable, so I appreciate that studying with Ashley has given me a safe space to grow and experiment with my craft.

Really great stuff !!

It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

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

Shannon has worked with me for years, as my nutrition/fitness/strength trainer and my private music instructor! I love her! She is so patient, kind and knowledgeable. She cares and only wants to help me be better at everything I do! And she is always there to help even between sessions. She's all in!

Sharon takes time to listen to you and cares about you as a person as much as a student.
She has been knowledgeable on any instrument I have done lessons on (flute, clarinet, alto sax, cello, and violin).

"Our son Charles started taking lessons with Alex Sadnik when he was in 6th grade, and he is now going to be a senior in high school. It was in -home until the pandemic last year. After changing to him, Charles made tremendous progress quickly. Alex is a terrific teacher. He has patience , and is encouraging. He would often spend part of the lesson playing together with him, which was helpful. He would also allow Charles to choose some of the music he was interested in learning.
We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants to learn Saxophone or flute . You won’t be disappointed!!"
