The second you put your reed on your mouthpiece, you shape your sound. I like to alternate mouthpieces for unique new tones for different styles. Whether you are a beginner or have played for a few years, I can help you learn to play through passages, improvise over chords, and find your distinct tone. Let's jam!

Brian is great for kids and adults!

My 10-year-old showed interest in learning piano, and Brian is great! My 8-year-old thought it looked fun, so we added him, and Brian does a great job with him. In fact, my 40-something husband was so impressed, he signed up, too! Brian is terrific with all of them. Everyone is learning at his own speed and each is improving. Brian adeptly teaches according to skill, interest, aptitude, and attitude. I'm so impressed! I heartily recommend for anyone looking for a music teacher.

Excellent coach. Trained well. My son learn a lot from class and has been using his new moves at home. He loved the chess.
Marisha K.
My son is learning piano and chess with josh. We live in Brooklyn and he’s coming from nj. He’s always on time (even in a thunderstorm)!!! He’s patient but firm with my 5 year old son who’s extremely fidgety and at times absent minded! He’s a very by the book kind of guy and ensures that my son understands the foundation before moving ahead!

Joshua is great my 6 years old seems very interested to continue learning

Saxophone:
A family of woodwind instruments, saxophones are usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet. Like the clarinet, saxophones have holes in the instrument which the player closes using a system of key mechanisms. When the player presses a key, this typically causes a pad to close over a hole. There is soprano, alto, tenor, bass and baritone saxophones. The great thing about learning saxophone is it is almost the same fingers as flute and clarinet! We will start with the basics of learning finger placement, breath control, notes, reading, rhythms, songs, theory and improvising.

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Diane Heyman
I had a great first lesson with Damien. He is patient and extremely considerate. Damien took the time to determine a baseline of my general knowledge. He answered my questions and fully explained the concepts that we discussed. At all times I felt that I was having a positive experience and I have set goals for my next lesson. I am energized and motivated to continue and look forward to my next lesson with Damien.

The saxophone is easy to start on (if you know the right tricks) and tough to master. Wherever you are on your journey with the instrument, I've been there, and I can help. We'll sort out your fundamentals- tone, time, technique and intonation- while learning your favorite tunes and music I recommend for you based on what you like and want to learn. We improvise, compose, transcribe, and arrange so that you can understand music and express ideas fluently in any medium, the same way you can read, write and speak your native languages. The ultimate goal is to give you all the tools you need to create music you love- whether that means covering something you heard on Spotify or improvising new music from scratch.

I've played saxophone for over 15 years, studying first with Dann Zinn in the Bay Area, and then George Garzone and Shannon LeClaire at Berklee College of Music. I've taught the instrument and music to people since I was 18. I learned the instrument through an obsession with ...

I have studied saxophone, jazz piano/theory, and songwriting with Ethan for over 2 years, and he is the best music instructor I've ever had. He cares so much about his students and helps us thrive. Not only is Ethan my teacher, he is a friend and a mentor.

I first met Ethan through my school's jazz combo program, and my interest in music immediately grew in the presence of his friendly persona. Ethan organized life changing jam sessions and master classes that I will remember forever. His teaching approach is project based which gives his students something to walk away with. With his guidance, I have become a stronger musician and a wiser person. Thanks Ethan!

"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!!"

"Kareem has been teaching me since I was in the fourth grade. I am currently in 8th grade, and man what can I say, he's as good as it gets! After two years I was in my middle school jazz band, which is not easy for a person who has only been playing for two years. You, yourself will be able to see extreme progress within just a few lessons! You must know Kareem teaches at Pierce College, a class at the Tacoma School of the Arts (which I hopefully will be attending and taking his class), teaches numerous private students every week, and lastly he performs with a stellar jazz band of his own! He is extremely dedicated to the musical field. If I were anybody reading this review and wanted to start playing any of the variety of instruments he plays, I would call Kareem K.!
