After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhythms the students will continue learning the techniques and fingerings on their chosen instrument.

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

I have been a saxophonist for 11 years, currently studying as a saxophone student majoring in Music Education & Composition at Kansas State University.

Lessons for saxophone will consist of three main areas:

Technical Work:

No one wants to hear it, but this means scales and patterns! Learning all of the major and minor scales is a great start to learning new music, and will be the first goal for my students. Included in technical work is proper cleaning and care for the instrument, proper breathing, and physical habits such as posture.

Repertoire:

I want you to experience music that is capable of your skill level, exciting, and will help you learn about different styles and history. I have a substantial collection of music that can help you find what you enjoy playing! Along with learning to play new music, you will be learning about the significance of the music we play. Who wrote it? What time period? Why was it written? I am also a composer, so I have original ...

About Joshua
My name is Joshua, a teacher, composer, and performer. I am proficient in saxophone, and competent in flute, clarinet, composition, and piano. My Bachelor of Music degree comes from Kansas State University in the area of Music Composition. I am from a small town where I have had extensive amounts of experience working with children as a lifeguard, saxophone teacher, and teacher's assistant.

I run my lessons based on what YOU want to learn while building the basic skills required of your instrument of study. I have played classical, jazz, pep, and modern saxophone, and as a composer I am exposed to many different styles of music.

Music is so much more than notes on a page. It is expression, emotion, feeling...
And I understand that as your teacher, it is my job to equip you with the skills needed to fulfill the true music you want
to create!

If you have any questions, please contact me!

I have been playing saxophone for eleven years and absolutely love teaching it as much as I do performing. My goal is to inspire any student by the power of music. My lessons are relaxed, fun, and productive. I teach all ages and all ability levels on saxophone - soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone. Students will learn technical skills, repertoire, and/or a basic overview of the saxophone. I also have experience in clarinet and flute. Ultimately, I want to positively influence any and every student and create a foundation of music for them to carry for a lifetime.

About Emily
I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in performance from St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. I will also be attending the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities for a Master of Music degree in performance as well. I hope to continue my education and pursue a Doctor of Musical Arts degree within the next few years.

In the eleven years I have played saxophone, I have participated in a wide variety of ensembles. I have played lead alto saxophone in my undergraduate jazz band my entire four years there and principal saxophonist in the wind ensemble my senior year. I have also participated in pit orchestra, playing clarinet, flute, and soprano saxophone, saxophone ensemble, and in a backup band for a show choir, Kids from Wisconsin, playing alto, tenor, and soprano. I have also recently been awarded the Tony Winters Ins
trumental Music Award for extraordinary musical performance.

With knowledge in jazz, classical, and pop saxophone, I am able to teach all ages and ability levels in one, or all three of these categories. I have had a few students over the past six months and absolutely love teaching them. We have covered technical skills, repertoire, and saxophone basics. Whether it's a 30 minute lesson or a 60 minute lesson, I make every second count! I work in a relaxed environment and make it fun and productive for all ages. I am willing to do lessons online or in-home.

My passion for music has no limit and I really want to share that with any and every student. I strive to be a positive influence in the music teaching world so that students can carry a firm foundation of music for a lifetime. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better musician!

About Michael
I am a professional bassist, who also plays piano, guitar (acoustic and electric), and saxophone. I have been fortunate enough to play for some artists here in the US. I have been playing music since I was 8 years old. I grew up playing in the church which only helped further my talents. I play a wide range of genres which include but are not limited to rock, r&b, neo-soul, jazz, gospel, hip-hop, and more. I believe music is fun, it's a form of expression like no other. I am here to help cultivate and mold you just as my teachers have done for me.

As a teacher I have 2 main goals; that I get the student to love learning music/the instrument from me and that the student's goals are met no matter what level. I have been playing saxophone for 24 years. I have studied every form of saxophone playing and played all kinds of music on the instrument and bring that experience and awareness into our lesson.

About Mike
My name is Mike F. I am a saxophonist who also makes a living as a pianist and songwriter. I started playing the saxophone at age 10 and learned from the best. I have released 3 albums under my artist-name MikeMRF. My sophomore album, Mob Music, went to #1 on the iTunes Jazz Albums Chart, while my most recent EP went to #11. I have had my music played on U.S. and international radio, and charted on Billboard Most Added and Billboard Heatseekers. I have played with jazz greats and toured both the U.S. as well as Japan.

I love teaching piano, saxophone, clarinet and flute and working with students of all ages and levels. I am equally as happy teaching a beginner from scratch as I am teaching a college student looking to get help with a certain aspect of playing.

Mike made me feel so at ease with this gentle demeanor and patient approach to teaching. To hear him play is inspiring since he has the confidence of someone who has been performing in front of audiences for many years. He has already explained jazz piano in a way that de-mystified a lot of things I never thought I could do myself. Now I understand exactly what techniques I should be practicing to level up as a pianist. This guy can really play anything though, from rock to jazz to R&B to straight pop, which makes him a perfect instructor no matter what style you are interested in. Highly recommend his lessons.
