Cameron didn’t like his lesson, he LOVED it. It was his first lesson and Phil was extremely patient. He’s looking forward to future lessons and promises to practice! Thank you, Phil, we think we have a winner that will hopefully take time away from video games.

I have Alto and Tenor Saxophones, and can teach you to play and read, improvise, and how to make it sing

About Scott
Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Re
cording, and Live Sound for 16 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.

Karyn is a wonderful teacher! I was having trouble finding a private flute instructor in our area and, to my surprise, found that one could take lessons online. It's working out very, very well. Karyn's experience in music education is obvious and translates easily, even though lessons are online. She relates well to my fifth grade daughter and pushes her to do her best. I appreciate her patience, her encouragement for a job well done, and her guidance as to how to do better. This very choosy mom would recommend Karyn in a heartbeat for your flutist.

Ms. Kuborssy sure does know her stuff when it comes to music! She's not only professional and talented but also a great teacher. She's very patient with beginners but also knows how to push those that really have the potential to do something great. If you have a chance, definitely study with Ms. K!!!

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

About Ritchy L.

Weymouth, MA

From the casual musician to the returning professional, my lessons teach you what works. I'm completely serious when I say that you're guaranteed to get started quickly and feel good about the progress you make each lesson. From buying your first saxophone setup (sax, mouthpiece, reed, and accessories) to developing strong practice techniques, I'll make sure you get realistic advice that works for you. After our first lesson, I aim for no questions left unanswered.

About Ritchy
I am a professional multi-instrumentalist part of a band that has toured on both coasts and performs regularly on the east coast. I also write journals, poems, lyrics and other creative writing on a regular basis for commission. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Boston with a bachelors in Music focusing on Saxophone and Piano as my primary instruments.

The years I spent studying and immersing myself in the world of music theory helped me create a very passionate connection to music. Saxophone is the love of my life and has created so much joy over the years just from practice and performance. Knowing firsthand the fun and personal connection someone can make with music, this is what I focus on in any lesson I teach. Technique and scales are merely avenues to playing music that you connect with. While I do know all the cou
ntless fundamentals that lead to a strong musician, my goal with any lesson I teach is to never lose sight of the connection to the craft.

I would also go on to say that this principle doesn't merely stop at music. It extends into my creative writing and especially my cooking as well. I grew up surrounded by the sounds and smells of traditional Caribbean cuisine at home with my mom. She is my largest influence as a cook and as a creator. My mother taught me to be focused and purposeful in my habits at the stove and in life. She always said that Cooking that comes from the heart beats any recipe book and I believe her. Whether it be the simple ramen dish or five star cuisine, I always aim to teach how to cook stress-free and passionate. Even if you don't choose me as your teacher, I sincerely hope my words here can be carried into whatever you do. Thank you for stopping by and I hope we can create something special together. :)

I love passing on what I've learned while I've been at school! While I might be young, I have taken lessons with the great jazz saxophonist and arranger Charles "Chip" McNeill and the world renowned classical saxophone teacher and performer Debra Richtmeyer so I hope to pass down the love of the instrument that they've instilled in me. I'll cover the basics of the saxophone, as well as clarinet and flute if interested, and some great exercises and methods that my teachers have me do in order to improve. But in the end, I'll let the student decide what they want to learn. I'm open to many music styles and will try to lead each student in the right direction.

About Adam
Hello future students!
My name is Adam Nigh and I am currently a junior studying jazz saxophone at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. While I might be young, I do have teaching experience with middle school band. I hope to pass on what I've learned from my teachers, Charles McNeill and Debra Richtmeyer, two world renowned professionals. My main instrument is saxophone, however, I do double on both clarinet and flute and have a background in piano as well! I would love to teach any beginner or intermediate level students over the summer and grow along with you musically!

About Michael

I recently completed my studies at Louisiana State University, where I will be receiving my Master's Degree in Music in May of 2019.

Currently I am actively involved in both the Classical and Jazz programs at LSU, where I participate in a variety of chamber and large ensembles, representing LSU in competitions and masterclasses throughout the Gulf South region. As a working musician and teacher, I teach regularly at area K-12 schools, providing lessons in saxophone, clarinet, and flute. I am also involved in multiple wedding and popular music groups that play primarily in south Louisiana.

I meet the needs of each student to the best
of my ability, but adhere to specific set of fundamentals that apply to all instruments in any style of music. My goal is for you to be the best musician that you can be, and that means consistent practice and a desire to learn. It is my job to give you the tools to reach that goal, and inspire you to move forward with a dedication to the craft.
