Private Saxophone Teacher

Professional saxophonist, trained at the nations top music schools, I teach students of all levels and ages, whether just beginning or an experienced player. I have a great amount of experience in both classical and jazz and have been playing for about 19 years myself.

In addition to helping students establish solid fundamentals, I can help you reach your goals, whether that be through working on classical solo repertoire, jazz and improvisation, band music, preparing for a competition or audition, and more. I try to make lessons fun and enjoyable for the student.

If you don't live near me, online lessons are a great alternative to in person lessons. I have had success teaching many students of various abilities and ages throughout the country and abroad online! I have taught online students from 26 different states and 3 other countries.

Lucas has been an excellent saxophone teacher for our 15 year old son. We started taking lesson with him about 4 months ago, working on a level 6 solo piece for NYSSMA. Lucas is a great musician, very patient, encouraging and highly skilled at teaching. He works well with families and has a flexible schedule. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for coaching at any level.

Online Saxophone Teacher

Private one-on-one saxophone instruction has been my primary vocation for nearly 30 years. I've also worked as a professional performing musician for over 35 years. Each lesson is tailored to the tastes and needs of the student, with traditional method books rarely used once the basics are under control. Instruction is based on a strong working knowledge of scales. The informed use of these scales leads to a heightened understanding of improvisation, ear training, and other practical aspects of music theory. Students are encouraged to choose from a variety of jazz standards and transcriptions, classical themes, and pop tunes that I’ve transcribed and engraved. Rudimentary instruction is also available for saxophonists wishing to learn flute and/or clarinet.

Cindy
My 16-year-old daughter has taken lessons from David for almost 2 years. She highly recommends him for his patience, and she really likes how he will play the music first if she's having difficulty, so she can see exactly how to place her fingers or correct what she is doing wrong. David is personable and very accommodating to fit your schedule.
Stacy
David is a patient teacher and has been very accommodating to our needs. Each week we see improvement in our son's skills.
Bill
David's been teaching piano to our 10 year old son Harry for the past 3-4 years. He's done a great job keeping lessons fun, and keeping Harry engaged and making forward progress. Harry's progressed to the point where he's enjoying playing, and he practices without us asking him to. He can see for himself how much he's improved and it makes him want to keep going. All this is largely due to David's gifts as teacher. I should also mention that David has an outstanding musical knowledge and background -- he can teach rock, pop, jazz, or classical piano, and he plays jazz gigs professionally.

"excellent instructor and a wonderful person

I have been taking music lessons with Daniel since April of 2013 and it has been a great learning experience.

I had no musical background and I started learning Saxophone with Daniel and 7 months later, I am able to play popular songs that he chooses to fit best for enhancing learning curve. He does a great job with reinforcing correct habits from the very beginning and has been very encouraging and has highlighted improvement as we go from class to class. As music learning can be frustratingly slow, the feedback and reassurance he provides definitely helps in keep going back for more.

I wanted to learn guitar and piano with him as well, he encouraged to learn only Piano (for enhancing learning curve for musical theory concepts) and hold guitar for later. Which speaks about how he is genuinely concerned about your learning of music with sound reasoning. So now I take guitar and Piano lessons with him. He is very patient, polite and professional. He is great with students of all ages and easily modifies teaching style as per student needs.

Besides all that he is a great person to talk to. Numerous times we have had great discussions about things outside music.

I would highly recommend Daniel for music lessons to everyone."
