I'm a casual, easy-going, caring person, and I enjoy establishing a unique working relationship with each student.
I have been teaching flute for about twenty years.
In teaching I employ a personal, individual, flexible approach, to give my students each what benefits him/her the most. I emphasize proper technique, beauty of tone, musical interpretation, and enjoyment. Music theory is intertwined with the instruction. And we play lots of duets!
I also play the piano, thus sometimes accompany my flute students.

About Diane
I have been playing the flute since fifth grade, a long time! I have taught flute privately for about twenty years.
My second degree is an AA in Music from Grossmont College, near San Diego, CA. As a flutist I have been a member of both the La Jolla Civic Orchestra and the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra.
Since 1989 I have been the principal flute and a soloist with the San Diego Concert Band. In that group I regularly lead flute sectional rehearsals.
Since 2007, I have been a flute coach every summer at San Diego's Band at the Beach music camp for junior high and high school students.
I have taught students from ages 5 to 80 and have good rapport with every age.

I have been taking flute lessons from Ms. Wilson for close to 4 months now and its been a great experience so far. I had very little idea of music and had no such formal training but wanted to learn flute. She is supportive from day 1 and started to teach me the basics of music and flute. She is very calm, listens to my problems when I don't get some things easily and tries to suggest solutions. She has been very flexible in class timings and adjusts her schedule to accommodate me when I can't make it to the class on some days. I wish I get to learn a lot from her and become a good flutist.

Marianne is a fantastic instructor. She has the most important thing needed in teaching music, in particular beginners, PATIENCE. If you don't have that as a music teacher you are in the wrong field. Before the 1st lesson she asked me a series of questions with regards to my experience with the oboe to help her set up a lesson plan for me which was great. She doesn't treat you like "you're a beginner, here is what you need" (the "Cookie cutter approach"). I highly recommend Marianne as a teacher and look forward to my musical journey on the Oboe with her as my mentor and teacher.

Learn the basics so you can take control as you advance your technique.

About Anthony
I was originally trained on Saxophone, Voice and basic piano skills at the Chicago Conservatory of Music. My professional experience has been working as a traveling house band for the Ted Allen Agency in Chicago as well as numerous types of classic rock, fusion rock, jazz, jazz standards and fusion jazz and wedding bands.

I have been requested to play baritone sax in the Miracosta Oceanside Jazz Orchestra (MOJO) and also play with the Collective a smaller jazz ensemble taught by Steve Torok. This year I have been teaching before and after school music classes with children from 8 to 13. Our focus has been elementary training incorporating basic music theory, harmony and rhythm as well as instruments such
as clarinet and flute as well as sax.

Ive had a terrific multi year set of lessons w Tony and he is flexible, patient, experienced and teaches where ‘I’m at’ not where a lesson book would rule or dictate.

Tony often hears things in my tone and technique that he then works into my lessons.

He can prepare a plan or cover what you want: he seems to enjoy the experience of teaching. But if you want to improve, Tony will help you get where you want to go

I've been teaching the flute for 10 years and I am comfortable working with all age groups and ability levels.

Several of my students have participated in San Diego Honor Band as well as San Diego Youth Symphony. Preparation is the key to success, and I specialize in coaching students for auditions.

I also focus on duets and tone studies to help you unlock the beautiful sound of this instrument.

Music theory is an integral part of each lesson (as well as some basic piano concepts which can be very useful to woodwind players). Jazz conception and improvisation is also a specialty!

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.

Let's talk about your goals soon!

About Dave
I started Sax Lessons San Diego last summer. SLSD is an excellent and affordable woodwinds studio in the east county where I can pass along the knowledge I’ve gained over years of playing sax and clarinet. I’ve been fortunate to perform with Darryl Johnson from the Neville Brothers, Wild Child’s Dave Madden, the legendary Robert Cowan from the Taj Mahal band, Chet Cannon’s Committee, Bobby Detroit, Blackcherry Lightning, the Shenanigans, and my own Texas blues-New Orleans funk band, The Goods. I’ve studied music with Nathan East, Hollis Gentry III, Carl Evans, and more.

It is that richness of experience that I bring to each and every student.

At Sax Lessons San Diego, I teach all levels of jazz, concert band, blues, soul, and rock. Individual and group. Centrally located in La Mesa, just a few minutes from SDSU, Lake Murray, or the
Stadium. Plenty of free parking. Parents are encouraged to sit in during lessons.

My own teaching experience includes post-secondary, SDSU’s College of Extended Studies, private lessons at two of San Diego’s largest music retailers, and facilitator of woodwind master classes at Grossmont and Valhalla High Schools. I am experienced with preschoolers to high school school-age children, nervous adult beginners, and special needs students.

I offer flute lessons for the beginner-intermediate student, where together we'll work on scales, breath support, basic theory, and repertoire. Lessons should always be fun, so we forget that we're secretly working so hard!

About Alyssa
Hi there!

I am a supportive and encouraging teacher willing to teach all ages and abilities. It is my firm belief that music is for everyone.

I am currently pursuing my M.M. from Longy School of Music. I completed my undergraduate work at Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon privately. I am currently on the private lesson roster for two public schools in the area, and teach both double-reeded instruments. I have successfully helped young students prepare for and audition into district level ensembles.

I have reed-making experience and can assist students with finicky reeds, to help ease the most frustrating part about playing oboe & bassoon.

I'm looking forward to working with you!

Playing the flute is something that I consider fun, as well as the music that you play. Although we would cover the basics, I want to make lessons an enjoyable thing to look forward to, and in my opinion, you learn the best when you are eager about what you are accomplishing! I have lists of repertoire for students to work on, as well as fun and educational exercises to strengthen muscle memory of learning the flute.

About Jessica
Hello! My name is Jessica Proper, and I am currently a Music Education major at Hope College in Holland, MI! I graduated from Grand Ledge High School and was involved in many different programs, such as NHS, color guard, all of our Musicals (including Mary Poppins, Shrek, and a few others), the Wind Symphony, and an SSAATTBB chorus known as the Madrigals. I am excited to teach private lessons and introduce people to the world of flute playing! When I am not prepping for classes or juries, I like to settle down with a good book. I used to nanny, love Star Wars, any and all Disney, and being active- like hiking. I hope you enjoy flute playing as much as I do, and I cannot wait to be in contact with you!

NB- to my students: please contact me before missing a lesson. Your time is as valuable as mine. I do not wish to waste your time, and I h
ope that you do not wish to waste mine! Even if it is ten minutes before hand, please let me know so I don’t charge you for a missed lesson!

My mantra for every lesson is to teach a student how to 'be their own teacher'. A big bulk of the magic happens outside of the lesson so it is my goal and hope to provide various practice techniques and skills for a student to have in their tool belt when we aren't together.

At the end of the day we are all teachers, whether it be to ourselves or to others. When practicing solo, a student needs to be able to tap into critical thinking and ask themselves the right questions that will help them to solve a problem.

A private teacher is there to support that process, provide insight from their own experiences, and aid the student in developing that skill.
Because every student learns differently, I personalize lessons to the specific needs of each student and incorporate a wide range of influences from classical to modern/pop music.

About Monika
Salutations people of TakeLessons! My name is Monika and I am a flutist, lead West African drummer, and a writer/poet.

Flute-wise, I have been playing for 12 years and teaching for a little over 7 of them. As well as teaching privately, I have organized and run rehearsals for flute choirs. I'm a big fan of auxiliary flutes!
Along with classical music, I am a huge lover of world music (more on that below) and like to incorporate Latin jazz, modern, contemporary, and pop/radio music into my teaching. It is so important to get well-rounded exposure in music and if you love other genres, it's an added bonus!

As a lead West African drummer, I have been studying the art form for 5 years. My focus has been on music from the country of Ghana, and specifically the Ewe people. This is not just a focus on drumming but on song and dance as wel
l - it's a marvelous trifecta. I have taught workshops in all kinds of settings with as many as 80 students at once! From summer programs, teacher professional development days, to in- or after-school activities, there is always fun to be had! While this style of music is best suited for a group of people, there is nothing stopping us learning the drumming techniques and lead drum parts privately.

In addition to my musical life, I am also a writer and poet. As a child to two immigrant parents from Poland, I grew up learning how to teach English, and in turn fell in love with the creative writing process.
A lot of my inspiration comes from my constant reading, musical adventures, and particularly my time in nature as a hiker.

Never hesitate to reach out with any questions - I'd be happy to connect :).

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for young musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

About Jon
I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BMA from the College of Wooster in Ohio.

Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collaborate to find music that he or she is interested in, plus work on exercises that will build technique and sound quality. It doesn’t matter WHAT you’re playing, but HOW you play it.

I’ve been a musician for over 20 years and played in a wide variety of settings. In lessons, I’ll draw from that experience to help students achieve their musical goals.

As a performing artist, I’ve played in classic big bands, small jazz combos, and R&B style horn sections, just to name a few. I’m passionate about classical music, jazz, R&B, and funk, but good
technique is good technique, and a proficient musician should and can jump from one style to another with ease.
