Music has been a huge part of my life, and I couldn't imagine a life without it. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Saxophone Performance and Jazz Guitar and have been exposed to nearly ever form of music imaginable. I began playing saxophone as a child, and picked up guitar shortly after. For the past decade I've played professionally and taught all around the country. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons will be designed around each individual player's needs, but ultimately we will address proper technique, scales to chord relationships, rhythmic accuracy, soloing, and how to have enjoy playing your instrument while sounding the best as possible. For classical players will will focus on classical theory, etudes, patterns, and general technique for proper tone. For jazz players we will ...
I started playing clarinet in the school band at age six. My father was a musician, and he thought that playing in the school band would help me overcome my extreme shyness. I remember my first music lesson. I really liked my teacher. He came to my house, and he helped me to care for my clarinet and make some sounds on it. I thought playing the clarinet was wonderful. Once in awhile my mom would have to urge me to practice, but I was so drawn to playing the clarinet from the start that I would practice a lot on my own. I was the youngest member of the grade school band, but my music lessons helped me to keep up with the older kids. I had found a niche, and my niche helped me open up to other students in school and make friends. I participated in band programs through middle ...
My emphasis in college was alto saxophone, but I played Tenor, Bari, and soprano during that time as well. I can teach jazz and classical styles at all levels.
*** Travel Equipment *** I will provide a music stand, books when needed (i.e. supplementary or new material), and manuscript paper for writing out lessons. I expect students to provide chairs that support good posture, music books we have already worked on, a pencil, and their instrument (along with all necessary maintenance supplies; ie reeds, cleaning cloths, etc) *** Specialties *** I am a California and Colorado certified music teacher (B.M. in Music, M.A. in Teaching), currently teaching at East High School in Denver, Colorado. My specialties are woodwind instruments, guitar, and piano. Along with all of these, I will include theoretical elements that will make the music more meaningful. I am passionate about song-writing and theory, so I can also tutor you in these fields.
With an emphasis on playing "In Time, In Tune, In Tone", you decide what to play, and together we decide how to play it!

I have been teaching saxophone in both classical and jazz settings, four years now. Students can expect to grow their skills and knowledge of the instrument within the first few lessons. No matter what the goal may be weather it's an audition for first chair or an audition for music school I will be here to aid them the whole way.
Hi, my name is Dylan and I'm excited to meet you. I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 when I was attending high school and have always loved helping students. I was a drum major throughout high school and attended the University of Northern Colorado for Jazz Studies in 2011, I taught the windsor middle school summer music camp for woodwinds in 2012. As well I was a first call for the pit orchestra for Up In Lights Productions in Loveland. I was apart of a production of Swing, Swing, Swing! in 2013 where I played two reed books and five different instruments. I am an open and compassionate person. My teaching style is direct, firm, but not strict. I look forward to helping you student reach his or her goals.
