Recommended age is 10 and up. Negotiable based on student's physical capability. This is one of my secondary instruments. I am able to teach to a competent, late intermediate level of technical ability. Students on other woodwinds looking to add saxophone will benefit from my real-world experience with woodwind doubling.
I have been teaching music students since my high school years. Although I am primarily a high-level clarinetist, I have developed strong piano skills and can "double" on several other woodwinds. My primary clarinet/woodwind teacher at university was Alex Fields, who studied with renowned woodwind teacher and method writer Himie Voxman. Over my 20 years of performance experience, I've played in nearly every situation from unaccompanied soloist to piano accompanist to church praise band to full orchestra and community band. This has given me an integrated understanding and appreciation for various styles and types of music. I teach primarily from a classical background and take students in the direction of the genre(s) they want to pursue. I believe a strong basis in technique and ...
My saxophone students can expect to study classical, jazz, contemporary music, and music theory in balance according to their tastes and aspirations. Students on saxophone/flute/clarinet can also expect to receive some piano instruction, if there is suitable access to a piano or keyboard during the lessons.
I also teach beginning to intermediate piano lessons - my degree & experience has equipped me with the special skills necessary to teach young, elementary aged students.
