Alex is a very relaxed, easy going, knowledgeable person who knows how to tailor his teaching to his students' needs and desires. Taking lessons with him is both fun and a great learning experience.
Sam
Alex is an incredibly talented player with an equal talent for teaching. I have played for more than decade and had leading instructors in school and Alex has completely taken my playing to another level. Best yet, he makes lessons super fun. He's kind, considerate, encouraging and reassuring. I cannot recommend him enough for anyone looking to begin to play, expand their play, or just keep in shape and have fun. He's the best.

A super insightful and helpful method of teaching that works so well for Zoom piano lessons. Tons of knowledge of scales, chords, and everything in between!

Isaiah is a fantastic instructor! I feel like I learned a lot during each lesson. Isaiah was extremely attentive and helpful. Easily the best guitar teacher I have ever taken lessons with. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Jenny
I've had several piano teachers over the years. Isaiah is by far the best. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable.
Erik H.
For someone who has never taken a private music lesson before I able to relax and begin learning about music literacy and music theory by Isaiah's ability to express and articulate the fundamentals of guitar in a simplified way. It was rewarding to leave the lesson with new techniques to practice and have fun with.

I was surprised that my lesson could be cancelled without any communication. This is our first experience with piano lessons and was excited to try it for the first time. ;(

My son has had 2 lessons so far. Joshua has worked with him at the level he is at and helped him when he gets stuck on certain chords and notes. He assigned homework for him to practice during the week and helped him figure out the parts he was stuck on.

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

"I just had a lesson with Sergio, and he seems like a good instructor. I learned some helpful things (I'm a complete beginner and was having trouble even just making a consistent sound with the saxophone). For instance, I learned how far the mouthpiece should be on the cork, and I learned an interesting breathing exercise for saxophone. I also learned the C Major Scale. My only trouble with the lesson was that my internet isn't very good, so the video (and sometimes the audio) cut in and out at times. But as for Sergio himself, I would recommend him for learning the saxophone. He seems like he knows what he's doing, and he is kind in his instruction."
