I have been playing alto saxophone (jazz and ensemble) for 13 years! The saxophone is one of the most beautiful sounding instruments and is worth the learn. I want to share my saxophone knowledge with those who are looking to take on a new hobby or relearn. It is important to not only know how the basics and fundamental keys to saxophone playing progress, but also understand the history behind the instrument as it will give the student much more appreciation for what he/she is learning. I am excited and cannot wait to meet you and teach!

About Hunter

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 ...

Private Saxophone Teacher

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are children and adolescents who are looking to pursue music when they go to college or auditioning for state and regional band programs. Many of my students are very busy adults who are either looking to pick up an instrument for the first time as an ...

Matt is an excellent instructor, adapting easily to my needs as an experienced musician, but a new saxophone student. He was able to provide the guidance I was looking for on the C Melody saxophone, even though it's not one of his main instruments. Matt took me through the basics at a pace that was very comfortable and spent a lot of time to help me find a tone that was right for traditional / folk music on the instrument.

I feel much more comfortable with the C Melody saxophone than I did before the lessons, and I'm confident that Matt has put me on the right path to continue improving in the long term.

Why do you want to play saxophone? Are you a beginner and want to learn it for school? Looking for a new hobby? Want to get into the state band? Or maybe you're looking for something more serious? Whatever your goal may be, I am here to help :)

I have a very detailed curriculum that my students go through. I pick studies that will help push you to being a better player. These include both jazz and classical saxophone. I also like having my students pick a piece they want to work on at the same time!

I am a beginner saxophone player and Stephen's lesson has been really good for me. He is able to pace his lessons based on my needs and I really like how he assigns practice material to work on before our next lesson. We always start off each lesson with reviewing the practice material and he always gives me detailed feedback and is really patient even if I was not able to master the practice material. He also lets me bring songs I want to learn and guides me through it. I look forward to our lessons every week. I would recommend Stephen to anyone who is looking to get better at playing saxophone.

"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!!"

One of my favorite things about Kareem is watching his band play shows. He's not just a really good teacher; he's also an amazing player.

"The first review was incorrect sorry.. Mr. Frixos is by far a great teacher. He teaches my daughter the saxophone. He is very kind, patient and really enjoys what he teach you can see that passion and how dedicated he is in teaching. I give him a 5 star because he explains it not only to my daughter but to me as well so I can help her. We enjoy his lessons and he has a great price for the time he teaches I recommend Mr. Frixos because of his knowledge and dedication to this field. He is a fantastic teacher.

I am still a little stiff with the computer so sorry for the earlier post that was incorrect you are more than a 1 star Mr. Frixos."
