I love working with brand new beginners all the way seasoned players who might be prepping for music college. I like to keep an fun atmosphere around the lesson and try to find out what drives my students.

We'll work through pieces from school and expand into topics such as improvisation, reading, music theory, and finding inspiration from great players. I have a jazz background, and love working with aspiring jazz musicians as well.

Steve has been great. We had to switch to online due to social distancing, and it has worked out just fine. He even gave us the first online lesson free to see if it we wanted to continue with it. He is a natural at communicating with kids, keeps it very fun, and has been great at getting our 8 year old started with piano.

Private Saxophone Teacher

I encourage all my students to enjoy exploring the sound of the saxophone and to find their voice on the instrument. Lessons include everything from reading and basic stylistic concepts, to improvisation, playing along with recordings of your favorite players, and transcription. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas Jazz Studies program and have over 15 years of teaching experience.

I am also very diligent in teaching sound production, embouchure, and tone. I specialize in prepping saxophonists for high school and college auditions. Many of my high school students have participated in San Diego Honor Band and San Diego Youth Symphony and received top honors. I also offer full-service recording services and can help guide you through the college audition process.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I've been teaching saxophone for 20 years and my students have gone on to the State level Band Auditions and won multiple times. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a decent sound, play scales, arpeggios and simple tunes, and as time goes on you'll be able to play popular tunes solo and with accompaniment of piano or band. I specialize in classical, jazz and klezmer style, typically use best published books, and have the renovated, quiet and spacious studio, music stands, audio equipment. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Excellent instructor!
Shao F.
Our 12-year old son has been learning clarinet from Mr. Dimitry for about a year now and we highly recommend him to prospective students for his deep music knowledge, rich clarinet performance experience and above all, just being a great clarinet teacher.

In a year's time with Mr. Dimitry, our son's progress has been very impressive. After our son started lessons with Mr. Dimitry, it quickly became apparent that Mr. Dimitry is a very experienced teacher for young musicians. He engages our son effectively to keep him interested in music and clarinet while at the same time sets high expectations for him. Our son always looks forward to clarinet lessons and also is motivated to practice pieces at home.

Mr. Dimitry not only teaches sound clarinet skills, but also emphasizes the importance of playing music the right way, that is to tell stories and express feelings through music rather than to play music like a technician. Although it is difficult for a young musician to fully appreciate this concept, it does go a long way in preparing him to become a really good musician in the long run.

Mr. Dimitry is very polite, pleasant and professional. We recommend him without any reservation.
Julia J.
My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction.

Bebe is a fun person and Talented Teacher, Bebe knows how to takes the stress from the student and gives them the tools they need to succeed. I love going to Bebe's location and having my daughter get that one on one with her. My daughter was scared to have lesson because she was worried about being judged and Bebe helps them get over that. My daughter thought she was an Alto because everyone would tell her that. But as soon as she started going to Bebe she told her she was not she has more range then that and she is a Mezzo-Soprano. If you want a teacher who is friendly and supporting you need Bebe.. Thank you Bebe for everything you do...

Bebe was great... very patient and positively:)
