My first instrument and my first love. Started at age 10 and was teaching by age 15

About Randall
My love of music and musical talent was discovered when I was just five years old. An uncle gave me a plastic recorder and, without lessons or help from anyone, I was playing melodies within days. Soon after I started taking private lessons on Saxophone and Clarinet.
I played my first paying job at age 14.
When I was 15, my private instructor, asked me if I would be interested in teaching. He put me on the County list of private instructors and and soon I had my own thriving studio of Sax and Clarinet students. From that time on, I have almost continuously been involved in music education.
Though I had listened to the rock "guitar gods" of the 60's I never became interested the guitar until, at the age of 15, I first heard Maestro Andres Segovia through his televised master classes. About the same time, I was amazed by the chord
melody genius of jazz artists like George Van Eps, Joe Pass, and Bucky Pizzarelli. It was then I realized that the guitar could be an "orchestra."
In the small town where I grew up, there were no guitar teachers so I studied with outstanding Guitarist Ed McGuire. Later, I studied formally with several renowned professors of guitar, including Bruce Holzman at FSU and Randy Reed, a professor at Duke University in Durham North Carolina.
I have also performed in Master Classes for Classical Guitarists Atigoni Goni and Dimitri Diatchenko.
Before making North Florida my home, I toured and played throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast in a variety of venues and styles from Rock to Jazz to R&B.
Even after settling down I have stayed active in the music business, playing and teaching. I continue to work regularly performing solo, or in ensembles throughout Florida from Tallahassee to Jacksonville.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who prefers to motivate my students by instilling my love of, and enthusiasm for, music in them rather than using any kind of "scare" tactics. I had a very few "knuckle rapper" style teachers over the years and found them to be very unmotivating.
A large percentage of the progress a student makes happens between the lessons. The more they practice, the faster they improve.
I also believe in building a solid foundation that my students can build upon. A good teacher teaches a student how to teach themselves.
On guitar, I encourage, but don't insist on, my students learning to read music. Some styles of guitar do not require it, but I do mention the gigs I have gotten over the years because I could read.
On all instruments, I am a big believer in great technique, musicianship and improvisational skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio is in back of the house as an addition. It has its own separate entrance and is approx 160 sq feet. Well lit and with heat and air.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide a music stand if needed. Students must have their own instrument. They will need to get their own books, though I do provide much supplemental material.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Classical, Blues, Flamenco

I teach saxophone lessons to students of all abilities, ages, and interests. A recent graduate of the New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music, I am offering in-home, studio, and online lessons.

About Ian
Hi, my name is Ian and I have been playing music professionally since 2006 and teaching since 2009. A recent graduate of the New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music, I am building up my private studio. I am available to teach lessons at a studio location, your home, or online. I have worked with students who are looking to enjoy learning more about music as well as those who are preparing for important auditions and performances. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and skill levels.

When working with children and adolescents, I create a structured learning environment and provide comprehensive instruction in instrumental technique, musicianship, and music theory. With adults, I teach them the fundamentals of the saxophone and reading music. As these skills develop, we explore the styles of music that inspire you to play.

I have s
tudied under Reggie Workman, Billy Harper, Bobby Sanabria, Kirk Nurock, and many others and developed expertise in saxophone, improvisation, and composition (classical, jazz, rock, and pop). I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I own both an alto and a tenor saxophone and am happy to work with students who play other saxophones. If you do not yet have a saxophone, I can sometimes arrange to have one available for you to use during the lesson, but I need to know in advance. Eventually, you will need your own instrument to practice. I am always happy to help students with saxophone rentals and purchases!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all about lessons or acquiring an instrument. I'd be happy to work with you!

I encourage all my students to enjoy exploring the sound of the saxophone and to find their voice on the instrument. Lessons include everything from reading and basic stylistic concepts, to improvisation, playing along with recordings of your favorite players, and transcription. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas Jazz Studies program and have over 15 years of teaching experience.

I am also very diligent in teaching sound production, embouchure, and tone. I specialize in prepping saxophonists for high school and college auditions. Many of my high school students have participated in San Diego Honor Band and San Diego Youth Symphony and received top honors. I also offer full-service recording services and can help guide you through the college audition process.

About Ian
I've been teaching woodwinds (saxophone, flute, and clarinet) for the past 15 years and enjoy the one-on-one interaction with students of all ages. Music is one of the last professions that is truly learned through apprenticeship. Having a good private teacher is absolutely essential to your growth and development!

Over the years I've amassed wide variety of concepts and materials to speed your learning process and keep things FUN. I've taught all ages and abilities: new beginners (elementary and middle school level), older students just picking up the horn again, conservatory-bound high school students, amateur professionals, marching band & drum core kids, retirees looking for a fun hobby, professional musicians looking to expand their jazz knowledge, and more. We'll start at your level and expand from there! Styles I've performed in
include classical, jazz, latin, pop, fusion, rock, funk, and more.

I encourage all my students to enjoy exploring the SOUND of their instrument and to find their own voice. Lessons include everything from reading and basic stylistic concepts, to improvisation, learning songs, playing along with recordings of your favorite players, and jazz transcription. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas Jazz Studies program and have over 15 years of teaching experience. I'm currently adjunct faculty at USD Dept of Music, Mesa College, and have taught as a clinician/coach for numerous high school and middle school programs. In the past I’ve had the opportunity to study with many inspiring musicians and I enjoy passing on the tradition to new students!

I am a beginning Tenor Sax student and a senior citizen. I have played other instruments years ago, but never a woodwind instrument. Ian has been a marvelous instructor for me. Although I had never picked up a sax until December 2014, he already has taught me how to play several simple tunes and a number of scales. His patience and sensitivity to the appropriate pace is impecable. He also keeps me informed of other activities - concerts, recordings, community events to reinforce my interest. I would recommend Ian as a music teacher to anyone without reservation or hesitation.

I'm a full-time musician in the music industry for 13 years now performing with such artists as J.C. Chasez (N'Sync), Tony-award winner Alice Ripley along with several theater companies. I've also coached multiple band programs for 4 years now. Success comes from having a thorough understanding of each instrument I play. This allows for multiple approaches to learning each instrument, rapid development of the student and involving fun teaching techniques. You'll learn fast and enjoy doing it!

About Jesse
Music lessons were such a chore in my childhood. My mother drudgingly dragged me to lessons every week and forced me to practice at least once a week before my next lesson. I soon met a new teacher who offered a different perspective and genuinely made playing music fun.

I can honestly say that it changed my life.

I wouldn't come to understand how until much later. I couldn't have even imagined becoming a professional musician until college but I was certainly given the tools to be successful in whatever I pursued living in such a demanding and competitive world. Self-confidence, active critical thinking skills, consistent work ethic, maintaining a healthy imagination, a lifelong appreciation for the arts. These all stem from my time in lessons and later my career in music.

As a professional musician in the San Diego and Los A
ngeles area, I perform regularly with many different music groups and solo artists including Frankie J, San Diego Symphony, San Diego Winds, Sure Fire Soul Ensemble and many more. I have also coached the band programs at Helix, Hoover, Del Norte and Rancho Buena Vista High Schools on all woodwinds.

Originally a classically-trained saxophonist (concert band, orchestral, solo literature), I currently hold a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Music emphasis in Jazz from California Institute of the Arts and Bachelors of Music degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University. I specialize in teaching intermediate and advanced students but also work very efficiently with beginners.

In the spirit of my previous teachers, I encourage new and fun methods of music instruction while still reinforcing the basics. All with the idea of having fun while playing music!

Thank you for your consideration.

I have been working with Jesse for a few years now. I am bummed that the subject section of this review only lets me select one subject. Jesse has helped me with ear training, theory and composition, piano, performance, harmony, and overall musician advice. I cannot think of a more authentic and caring mentor and teacher out there that could be as efficient and helpful as Jesse has been to my career. I have seen a lot of progress in my musical career and my confidence as a musician has grown thanks to Jesse! He genuinely cares about the art and his students, he gets involved in their music careers and makes sure that the lesson is learned. He is familiar with many approaches and works hard for his students. Music is very lucky to have Jesse as a teacher!

My goal when teaching lessons is to provide instruction for producing sound on the saxophone, provide a solid foundation of knowledge in the basics of music theory, and to introduce the student to improvisation, specifically in the Jazz idiom.

About Michael
Hi, and thank you for your interest!

I have been teaching private saxophone lessons since 2009, and am currently available to teach lessons online, or at your home in the Las Vegas/Henderson area of Nevada.

I teach students of all skill levels, from basic concepts like assembling the saxophone, sound production and beginner theory to the more advanced areas of transcribing, improvising and advanced Jazz theory. My lesson plan is designed to introduce reading music in conjunction with saxophone playing, and while I have plenty of prepared material to keep our lessons progressing quickly, I will work at your pace in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere.

I am currently enrolled in the Graduate College of the University of Nevada Las Vegas, pursuing a Master's in Music in Jazz Composition and Theory. I hold a BA in Music (Jazz Perfor
mance) from St. Francis Xavier University in my home province of Nova Scotia, Canada. From 2010 to 2016 I worked as a show band musician for Carnival Cruise Lines, covering alto, tenor, and baritone sax positions and doubling on flute and clarinet.

Whether you are a parent looking for a private instructor for your child, a student preparing for an audition, a hobbyist or an established musician looking to pick up another instrument, I can show you the ins and outs of my favorite instrument.

Thank you for your consideration, and I hope to meet you soon!

Michael

I try to be the kind of teacher I would like to have. All of my saxophone students have not only gotten better, they have also grown their own personal joy of playing sax. That's number one for me. Saxophone's the king of all instruments, and I take my students and their needs seriously. I haven't had a single dropout. I can always find something to work on in your playing, no matter where you're at. After years of playing sax myself, I know how to help you get where you want to go.

About Dave
I teach clarinet, flute, and saxophone lessons. I play tenor sax professionally with first-call bands in area clubs. I write about pop culture for the San Diego Reader, and I co-starred in FOX TV's "Three Minutes to Stardom."

I'm able to connect instantly across a wide spectrum of ages and personalities.

“My son enjoys the lessons and looks forward to seeing Dave. I highly recommend Dave as an instructor.” – Jim C.

All of my lessons are priced with respect to family budgets and are open to all ages and skill levels. From beginner to intermediate to advanced, I will give you or your child tools that anyone can use to improve faster and have fun playing music.

"The extra things Dave does, offering opportunities to perform, attending student performances at their school, show what a caring teacher he is." – Shannon V.

My in

Plenty of free parking, a waiting area for parents and siblings, and shopping close by. Many of my parents drop their kids off and run errands during lessons.

“Dave provides a structured template for learning which is tempered by a lot of humor.” –Judith T.

Hello! I am a Atlanta-based professional saxophonist and have been teaching for 8 years. Lessons with beginners focus on establishing solid fundamentals with air support, embouchure, and saxophone technique. For more seasoned players, I emphasize advanced techniques, developing a personal sound, and exploring the saxophone repertoire. All students also develop their core musicianship skills such as sight reading, ear training, and basic theory and interpretation. I am an adaptive teacher and will always strive to incorporate interests of the student with the goals of my personal curriculum. My students have seen great success and have dominated festival band sections, won placements in competitions, and even entered college music programs! Ready to begin the fun? Send me a message!
