Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been teaching saxophone for 10 years. I enjoy teaching people of all ages, both children and adults, of all levels. I believe in teaching a strong core of music fundamentals but also in finding what makes music special to each student. Lessons should be fun and engaging. I have several students audition into regional bands, and select school ensembles every year. But we also make sure to play some pop tunes and top 40.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I am a multi-instrumentalist, with 14 years of experience playing saxophone, 8 years of collegiate study in saxophone performance with modular studies in Jazz, Music Theory, Composition, and Pedagogy.

With a broad range of skills spread across a wide gamut of instruments, I have ample experience in adapting and learning concepts in a cross-disciplinary manner and have a great facility for fostering growth and diagnosing learning discrepancies.

Lessons are comprehensive; covering not just saxophone technique, but valuable skills and concepts within the idiom that provide students with a well-rounded education and understanding of their musicianship.

Most importantly, I am performing professionally on a weekly basis and putting my own skills and education to work constantly.
