Thanks for visiting my page!
I've been playing the saxophone, among other instruments professionally for a number of years in New Orleans and Nashville. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Jazz Studies from Louisiana State University, where I also studied classical music and theory extensively.
I can help beginners to build a solid foundation on the saxophone. For more advanced players, the lessons will be tailored to your specific interest and experience level.
I look forward to working with you!

I want to help you play from your heart. Music is a magical part of life, and I can help you learn how to play music that people want to hear. I will show you how to conquer the mechanics of the process so that you can focus on the beauty and joy of the music.

Music can also integrate our mind, body and soul. I work with students on all levels. We will break thinks down into manageable bits and bring it back together and synthesize it into a whole.

As a Waldorf teacher I have years of experience of helping students breath life into their music.

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!

"My five lessons with Ashley was fruitful and productive. She takes time out to come up with a lesson plan. She also emails me a summary of the lesson after every lecture. With Ashley’s help I was able to improve my embouchure and expand on my ability to read and write music. I highly recommend you give her a try."

"I took Private lessons with Jon for almost two years in high school. He was always very knowledgeable and helpful, and was a major factor in my success those years in making All State and other Honor Bands. I only stopped taking lessons when I moved away for college, or else I'd still be taking them now! He was always organized and easy to schedule with. Definitely my best experience with a Private Instructor to date!"

"I started taking saxophone lessons from Steve in Fall 2017 after not picking up the horn in 10 years. He is very knowledgeable in theory and technique and has been extremely beneficial in helping me get my chops back up par. In these lessons I did not have much direction for Steve on what I'd like to accomplish but that wasn't an issue for him as he was able to make each lesson worth while by shedding light on harmony theory and creating lines as well as different techniques to focus on to improve my playing.

I just bought an additional 10 lessons and had my first lesson of 2018 with Steve this May and am very happy with my decision. He is giving me great feedback on charts I am playing and really giving me a sounding board to ask questions and grow as a musician within this instrument (alto). I personally have a fairly solid foundation in music theory but if you are new to music theory Steve can break that down for you step by step.

I look forward to continuing my lessons with Steve and am already seeing the benefits of having a great teacher."

"I got a free Alto Sax from a former coworker, and after several years of not having played Clarinet, I felt I could use some guidance from an awesome woodwind doubler like Eric.

The convenient part for me was that he's one of my good friends! I can say both as a student and a friend that Eric is a consummate professional, and is incredibly qualified to teach students of any level how to play the Saxophone. If I had 1/3rd of the Sax chops that Eric has, I'd be gigging right now."

"I have been learning how to play the tenor saxophone with Lonze for seven months. I had never picked up the sax before, so I was truly starting from zero. I have enjoyed working with Lonze because he emphasizes the importance of on fundementals like practicing long tones, scales, tounguing and rythm. I have also been learning from him how to read music. When I am faced with a note I cannot seem to hit, he is able to provide specific guidence and advice on how to work one's embochure and throat in order that, through practice, I can work towards improving. The same aplies to finger positioning, as he has provided me with specific advice on how to position my fingers for best fluidity between notes. He has been very encouraging during this process, which keeps me motivated to continue. I look forward to continued learning under his tutelage."

"I wanted to learn how to play the sax – and here it is, given to me as a present. I started to look for a teacher and was put on to him. I reckon he is a good teacher. He clearly breaks down information, has a creative approach to studies, always puts something new on offer, and takes his students’ wishes on board. Undoubtedly, Nick is a fair musician notwithstanding his teaching spirit. If any acquaintance of mine sets their sights on playing the saxophone, I will certainly recommend him to them."
