When asked “why do I teach music,” the answer stems from two main reasons: (1) I want to prompt a lifelong love for music in the lives of students, and (2) I am self-motivated to learn more from the vastness of musical experiences. Music has the ability to reach a wide variety of people from different cultures, ideologies, religion, and nationalities. It is a uniquely human experience that can’t be limited to a single person or group and, personally, there is nothing that comes close to the extent of music’s reach. It is an essential part of humanity.

As for instruments, I offer lessons in Alto Saxophone only.

About Nicholas

Born and raised in Miami, Florida, I began my musical endeavors in the fifth grade with the clarinet, not really knowing where it would take me. Throughout middle and high school I studied under Juan Carlos Ledón and director Marlene Urbay at Belen Jesuit Preparatory. From there I applied, and was

I will teach you the fundamental basics as well as some tricks I learned from various artists I've played with. We will be using the Jamey Abersold books, Bob Mintzer books, and some of the tunes in the fake books. Also we will work on scales. I will also teach you how to write and compose your own music using my background music I send you.

About Frixos

Frixos states that his love for music probably started before he was born. “I’m pretty sure the Motown sounds my mother loved to listen and move to permeated to me through her.” Add to that his exposure to different ethnic sounds like Greek (his origins) folklore and contemporary music, Portug

I have been very pleased with the piano instruction Frixos has provided to my grand-daughter. He is very encouraging and tries to make the piano lessons interesting.
Frixos has been very understanding when problems arise and lessons need to be changed.😊 If you are looking for a reputable instructor, let me suggest Frixos.
Paula
We love Frixos! He is a wonderful teacher and person. We were unsure how online classes would go, but it’s been great. Frixos has done an excellent job of teaching our granddaughter. He makes it easy for her to learn, yet still challenges her.

We were able to clarify a number of questions that I had about the saxophone
Looking forward to the next lesson

I am not a one-size-fits-all type of teacher. I tailor lessons to individuals and factor in how they learn, and what their specific goals are. I have taught saxophone and clarinet lessons since I was in high school, which was a few decades ago by now. I have saxophone performance and pedagogy degrees from Indiana University, and Arizona State. I have also played professionally since high school - both jazz and classical. I maintain a large studio, but can fit a few more students into my schedule.

I tailor lessons to the individual, taking their goals into account. I can get you as far as you want to go.

Saxophone:
A family of woodwind instruments, saxophones are usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet. Like the clarinet, saxophones have holes in the instrument which the player closes using a system of key mechanisms. When the player presses a key, this typically causes a pad to close over a hole. There is soprano, alto, tenor, bass and baritone saxophones. The great thing about learning saxophone is it is almost the same fingers as flute and clarinet! We will start with the basics of learning finger placement, breath control, notes, reading, rhythms, songs, theory and improvising.

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Not only do I know how to play all instruments in the clarinet family, but I repaired them for 21 years, so I know the technical side of how the instrument really works, and can quickly diagnose whether an issue is with the player or with the instrument. This is something I am passionate about - having a properly working instrument. I can even offer discounted repairs if the student is within shipping or driving range.

Besides that, I believe making music should be fun! I will choose much of the music with the student so not only is the fun factor going to be high, but the learning factor will be high as well. We will set goals periodically, and as they are met set new ones.

About J.J.

My son is learning how to play the saxophone and even though he's had no experience playing any type of instruments, he's learning a lot because Joshua's a great teacher. He's patient and kind with him and I would recommend him to anyone that's looking to learn something new!"

"Frixos was a terrific teacher for my son (now 12) and my daughter (now 14). He worked with them once per week for about two years, when my son finished 5th grade and my daugher was finishing 6th grade. He helped my son get started and learn the alto sax from scratch, and helped get my daugher on track, and correct her many mistakes. In short, both my kids made the top band in middle school at the end of their 6th grade years. My daugher was the top alto sax in her middle school by middle of 7th grade, and my son by the end of 6th grade. The both had a blast with their instruments, and the worked with them on the scales, and playing various genres of music including jazz. Their understanding of music was far beyond most of their classes, and they enjoyed their class time with him, and got to know a person that spend their entire life and professional career in the music business. In addition to Alto Sax lessons, he worked with the kids to learn music studio tools and play keyboard. After two years, we had to stop the lessons, due to financial constraints, but Frixos was like family to us, and I would highly recommond him to anyone without hesitation. He's a great guy!"
