What I value the most as a teacher is figuring out what the student is most interested in and creating a learning experience centered around their goals. I can teach beginning players to advanced players. I am well versed in both the classical and jazz/comercial styles of the instrument.

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophonist, Composer, Educator.
21 years of practice, 10 years of teaching, 1 MASTER of Pedagogy, 2 BACHELORS in Classical and Jazz Performance (New School, NY).

My motto is efficient work for maximum pleasure. The idea is to build up a strong foundation of basic technique of the instrument (body, sound, air, time) in order to quickly come to play along your music idols.

With more than 20 years of practice and more than a decade of experience teaching, I've seen and gone through all kinds of mistakes myself which allows me to really know the correct and sane way to play saxophone, effortlessly and beautifully. Moreover, I have played all kinds of music through the years going from Bach to John Cage, from pop to classical to jazz, afro-cuban, brazilian, etc. Therefore, I'll be able to adapt my teaching specifically to your goals and to enlarge your scope of knowledge.

Caution : risks of addiction, immense satisfaction and personal development.

Rebecca is phenomenal for private lessons for all ages. She is very patient and makes learning the clarinet fun. She is detail oriented and will help you be the best you can be while still being encouraging and helpful. Rebecca gives clear feedback and suggestions to fix issues, she also is very knowledgeable about repertoire and new opportunities for playing. I would recommend her to everyone I known interested in clarinet.

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!
