Daniel is a excellent instructor. He's very patience, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. I cant wait for our next lesson to learn some more. I tried on my own and was going to give up but Daniel has shown me that I can learn to play bass.

Challenging

My son enjoyed his lessons with Daniel. He appreciated how he was challenged at each session and always looked forward to next lesson.

We will definitely request Daniel again in the future.

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are children and adolescents who are looking to pursue music when they go to college or auditioning for state and regional band programs. Many of my students are very busy adults who are either looking to pick up an instrument for the first time as an ...

Matt's a wonderful teacher. He's extremely patient, and takes his time explaining concepts in different ways to help you understand the topic fully. He's also very flexible which really helps those of us with crazy schedules. If you wish, class time can focus on music theory along with the actual playing of the flute which is very valuable (in my opinion). He's given me great tips with regards to embouchure and tone, not to mention with reading music and applying them to my playing. His instruction has really helped me improve my playing overall. I highly recommend Matt.

Matt is an awesome teacher. I have been taking lessons with Matt for about 18 months now. Even though I haven't picked up a horn since high school, Matt's patience and methodology has given me the confidence to pursue this hobby further.
Highly recommended!

It's been more than a year of weekly lessons with Mack, and I could not be happier.

Mack is smart, quick, and knows how to handle kids to get results. There's no wheedling, bargaining or begging. It's just ok, do this, no, stop, do it again., No stop do it again, no stop do it again, and then good, that sounds good. I guess I should not be surprised, really, but my 13 yr old son cites this as what he likes best about Mack's instruction - it's all business.

Would I recommend Mack as a teacher for kid's music lessons? Yes, without reservation. Mack is an excellent teacher.

My 9 year old son came from School of Rock, which was organized chaos, to now where John has implemented a real strategy for him to learn faster and to focus on reading notes. My son has retained his interest and is excelling under John's guidance. I would highly recommend John for students of all ages.

My experience in saxophone teaching ranges from 6 yr olds to adult professionals. I feel comfortable teaching any direction on the instrument (classical, jazz, rock, etc).

My strengths are in understanding my students and catering to their individual musical interests.

Music is a fun activity! I aim to keep it that way!

Corbin is friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about both minute technical aspects of saxophone technique as well as general musicality. I was quite picky in trying to find a saxophone instructor as I already have a BA in Music and wanted someone to help hone my skills in preparation for graduate studies. And I'm happy to say that Corbin is a great teacher and really knows his stuff!

Best instructor! My son is 6 years old and is my very picky/difficult child. He looks so forward to Corbin coming and teaching him piano. Corbin is patient and knows when to reign my son in to pay attention and when to just let him experiment with music and have some freedom. I highly recommend him!

Tony is terrific. He's full of enthusiasm for the saxophone and brings a great deal of encouragement and positivity needed when you're starting out. He's also very capable of adjusting his teaching style to reflect the interests and needs of the student. For example, I've got some music reading skill, so Tony adjusted the lessons to reflect that. He and I txt when I have a question during the week. He's always encouraging.

Tony is such a patient, fun instructor. I am mainly a pianist and wanted to work on my vocal fundamentals and get my singing to a better level. His expertise has really helped me start achieving my goals. I met him in college last year in Jazz band, and that man can really blow on saxophone as well! Thank you for all your help!
