Dan is a great teacher and musician. He is highly knowledgeable as well as motivating.
I started playing saxophone again after years of not playing.
But playing on my own quickly got me to a level where I didn't make much progress anymore and started to lose motivation.
Dan picked me up where I was and got me back into practicing.
He is very good in structuring the lessons and the practice to fit your goals and skills.
Malcolm K.
He's great
Pete C.
Dan is really a great teacher.. firstly, he’s personable, friendly and creates rapport with the student, By asking your interests he makes the lessons about YOU by accommodating those interests and the WAY you want to learn.

I’m an adult and have no interest in traditional approaches to learning an instrument; I’ve been there, done that and found it not only terribly uninspiring (twinkle little star anyone?) but In every way overly difficult by trying to mix too many skills together at the same time. Before you even have a relationship with and “feel for” your instrument and have the technical skills to play it even half way decently, you’re trying to understand how long to hold a dotted eighth note! This is the reason a lot of people quit playing before they even get started…

Dan knew exactly what I was talking about, met me there and then proceeded to get me to do more in one lesson than I probably would have done in a week on my own, and in the way I want to learn!! He knows how to meet you where you are, find your self prescribed limits and then push you through them! He’s truly skilled in all the ways a teacher needs to be effective with a student!

Online Saxophone Teacher

I am an experienced teacher of 4 years, specializing in teaching upper beginner's to first-year college students. I am a performing musician who has been playing the saxophone for over ten years now. I believe each lesson should be tailored to the students wants, and to their current ability level. I will be able to teach students the songs they want to learn, while also teaching them the fundamentals needed to perform music. As a musician who has gone to college for music I also know what is needed for auditions, and what should be prepared for a lifetime of playing music.
I am well versed in many different styles of music including: jazz, pop/rock, classical music, and others. I have a passion for improvising and composing, and as a hobby I compose music and I have a home studio where I practice recording and producing music.
