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.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been playing the saxophone since 1998. My teaching experience in itself equals to some 10 years.

Through this time period, I have been working with Beginner to Advanced-level students of any ages. We have been practicing in my professional studio, at my trainees’ premises or via Skype.

To any student of mine I offer a tried-and-true combination of techniques that have eventually made up my state-of-the-art teaching methodic.
It contains, but is not limited to, the following:

- developing beginner musicians’ skill;
- establish the basis of musical theory including learning musical notation and reading scores;
- gaining extensive practice through performing popular classic to hit tunes;
- giving rise to intermediate-level saxophonists’;
- getting to know how to play in ensemble;
- learning how to improvise in a variety of genres.
- polishing advanced sax players’ mastery.

And, no doubt, helping prepare for an upcoming concert or competition is an option, too,

I wanted to learn how to play the sax – and here it is, given to me as a present. I started to look for a teacher and was put on to him. I reckon he is a good teacher. He clearly breaks down information, has a creative approach to studies, always puts something new on offer, and takes his students’ wishes on board. Undoubtedly, Nick is a fair musician notwithstanding his teaching spirit. If any acquaintance of mine sets their sights on playing the saxophone, I will certainly recommend him to them.
Abbie
Nick is an exceptional musician and teacher. My son plays tenor saxophone and with Nick’s help jazz and classical pieces are taught in a fun and meaningful way. He is very patient and is great at giving little tricks and hints. He explains everything thoroughly from scales, technique, etc., His feedback at each lesson is detailed and on point. My son enjoys and looks forward to his lessons with Nick. I highly recommend!!!!
Emily
It wasn’t easy for me to find my Teacher as I wanted was an end-to-end solution. Not only playing, learning solfeggio and all that jazz. But also developing my ear and impro skills. Happily, Nick has given me some advice on how to train on my own for the best result – even with the help of some apps on my phone.

My philosophy on teaching revolves around the idea that on the foundation of instrumental technique and functional ear training, all other facets of music are made easier.
Developing instrumental technique teaches the student how to assess and target their weaknesses. This is necessary to make the process efficient. I work with students to create a plan so that they can develop quickly while practicing a reasonable amount. I know their lives are busy enough.
Functional ear training is a skill that not only makes playing music easier, but it also makes listening to music more enjoyable! This is a skill the student keeps for the rest of their lives, regardless of whether or not they continue to play their instrument as an adult.
For jazz music specifically, if the student wants to go down that road, I find it imperative to make sure the history of the music goes hand in hand with the craft of the music. The study of history gives greater context to the music we listen to, which ...

"Kendra is an awesome instructor ... As an adult student new to the saxophone she not only taught me the fundamentals but also adjusted the lessons to the style of music I enjoy... My daughter took clarinet with Kendra and was just as happy... The other amazing thing was in a short period of time she brought me to the level where I could be a part of her adult saxophone chamber group... I would highly recommend Kendra whether you are new to the saxophone or clarinet or have been playing awhile and want to increase your level of play with the style of music you enjoy!"
