Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone is my primary instrument and the one I am the most excited about. I've been teaching saxophone for a year and my students have gone on to perform in area-all-state competitions and concerts in the NY area. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few folk songs and as time goes on you'll be able to read treble clef. I specialize in classical, typically use Tune-A-Day or Jump Right In books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: metronome, and laptop. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Robin was early to our first lesson. She worked with my son easily, he felt comfortable with her. She helped him with his fingering and gave tips for the difficult notes. We look forward to working with her for the next month.

Linda was awesome, very patient with a total beginner with not only cello but also playing music. She is great teacher , i can tell that from our first lesson.
Steven
My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!

I am very much a beginner. Ariana helped me with the fundamentals of mouth shape, breathing and air management, and the tongue/reed relationship. Most of all, Ariana helped me overcome my self consciousness in playing the clarinet with such an accomplished musician. She was fun, gracious and positive even with my rudimentary skills.
David F.
Dr. Ariana was a fantastic teacher. She makes learning fun by tailoring music choices to the student. She's also an outstanding communicator and educator who is able to make everything seems easier and more fun. Highly recommended.

Very knowledgeable, patient, and explains things in a way that's very easy to understand. Highly recommended.

Rodney J.
Hello, my name is Rodney James and I've been a student of Chase at the Juilliard Music Advancement Program for two years. During my time with Chase, I have improved tremendously on my improvisation, technique, and fundamentals on the saxophone. Chase is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable teachers I have ever studied under. The learning process with Chase is very easy and comprehensive because he breaks everything down to the bare roots. He treats all his students with respect and is a very supportive person in general. If you're looking to improve exceedingly on the saxophone, then you're at the right place.

I have experience in teaching every level of student from beginning to advanced. I am a big believer in teaching the fundamentals. I spend much time working on tone and technique with my students as this leads to much success when it comes to specializing in both classical and jazz playing. I give students much freedom as to what they want to work on as this allows students to be excited about taking lessons. After all, music is supposed to be fun!

"My son started taking saxophone lessons with Gleb in April, 2016. He was at 6th grade at that point and was playing saxophone as a Music Elective in his Middle School. In October/November, 2016 my son auditioned for the Special Music High School playing saxophone and, as we learned in March, 2017, got accepted. My son did not have a privilege of parental help or support as far as musical education or experience goes, and he is not exactly a very purpose oriented type “A” achiever kind of boy. So he could only rely on Gleb’s help and effort. In a month or so, my son said that he likes working with Gleb and would like to prepare for upcoming auditions. This is when we decided that we have to intensify their practices. Starting from June, 2016 my son was taking 2-hour lesson with Gleb 3 times a week. Since, as I mentioned earlier, we could not help our son with composition selection for his auditions, I just printed the Audition requirements from High School’s website and Gleb suggested a selection and worked on them with my son. I would definitely recommend Gleb for your young musician. I believe that he knows what he is doing not only in terms of music, but he is definitely able to work and find a way with different kids, not only the best out of the best, which you would often hear from very well acclaimed teachers and tutors."
