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 must say that Mr Daniel is doing a very good job. This was my third lesson, and he is not going through a set program but is teaching me where I'm at. So he is eliminating any waste time.
I will rate Mr. Daniel with 5 stars

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.

I have been teaching Saxophone for quite a few years and I love it! My students have seen results from learning to love to practice, to competitive success in school events. When you first come you will start to think about music in a simpler way and will gain the confidence and understanding you need to play how you would like. Normally, I use The Rubank Method to develop a lot of technique in younger students. For those playing jazz, we do a lot of play alongs while focusing on specific concepts.

About Henrik
Hello my name is Henrik! I have been playing the saxophone ever since I first picked one up in grade school. I consider myself a goofy individual who takes my instrument very seriously. I have been teaching private students for about eight years. I am currently getting my degree in Saxophone Performance from BYU. I love it when my students learn to have fun while practicing and gain confidence in performing. No matter your schedule or location, I am determined to make a difference and help people improve. I have a flexible class schedule that allows you to pick a time that works best for you.

I find it most successful to prepare a lesson for each student before hand, rather than going over the same thing with every one of them. You can expect a well rounded range of exercises and practice techniques. From motif development, t
une memorization and progressive patterns, to theory studies, music analyzation and playing along with the great recordings with the pros.

Mr. Henrik is teaching my son with flexible teaching plans and he adjust the contents based on my son's progress. He also shared his tips and his understanding of music with the student and take time to listen and answer any questions my son has. We can feel the improvement after three lessons and we are looking forward to more lessons from Mr. Henrik

All styles; soprano, alto, tenor, baritone

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Curriculum Gradation:
Elements of rhythm
Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation
Tone development
Finding/Expanding your range
Dexterity, speed, and accuracy
How to project
How to advance to the next level
Music theory

Improvisational techniques

My 16 year old son loves his lessons with Darrell and looks forward to them every week. He'd been taking guitar lessons elsewhere that were okay-ish, but this is so much more. Darrell is great, not only does he get along with and make my son want to learn, but at the same time they are working on voice, he is also teaching keyboard and working on the guitar! We really couldn't have asked for a better instructor.

HOW TO BE ABLE TO APPLY YOUR SAXOPHONE PLAYING TO THE REAL WORLD! What I mean by this is that I teach a method of playing saxophone that allows the player to jump into any setting or genre of music right on the spot and instantly be able to play without even having to read music. I have graduated from the University of Northern Iowa having received a degree in music with an emphasis in jazz. I can teach students the normal classical method of how to read music and play for a concert or jazz band but what makes me unique is that I can also teach how to improvise, record, write, network, form a band, and "hang" in most any genre out there. I have been featured on multiple records for different artists, and have been recorded on more than a few dozen published tracks. I have many years of real world experience trying to make it as a musician and have realized that developing a good ear and learning how to improvise was one of the most useful skills to being a saxophone player. I believe ...

About Alex
Hi, there! My name is Alex and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2015 and have loved helping my student learn how to improvise and have fun playing the saxophone in a more creative and self expressed way. I went to the University of Northern Iowa and earned a degree in Music with an emphasis in jazz studies in 2014. I'm a pretty easy going and fun person however I don't let my niceness get in the way of accomplishing our set goals and getting better at the horn. My teaching style is very dynamic in that it is tailored to whatever it is YOU are passionate about with music and finding a way to make great music. Not only could we learn how to play the sax, but I also have experience in writing music, recording, networking, creating and developing a band, and developing your own unique style of music. I look f
orward to helping you reach your goals and helping you share your gift of music to the world.

The world of the saxophone is dynamic, fluid, and awesome to behold! As a teacher, it is my prime objective to identify the needs, goals, and learning style of a student in order to achieve the most superb result for each and every student. Studying with me will take you far beyond the nuts, bolts, and fundamentals of saxophone performance—though these indispensable things will be covered—into realms of harmony, melody, rhythm, and even the more sublime, ineffable, and elusive qualities that music has to offer. There are no limits to what we can learn together. When you study with me, your own imagination provides the only limit to what is possible to achieve!

About Mike
I've toured the world and lived to tell the tale!

Being on the road can be arduous and taxing, but it is the adventure of a lifetime. I've done it all, from roughing it up and down the eastern seaboard in a minivan with the Indie Rock band Busman's Holiday, to playing big stages in Botswana, South Africa, and the United Kingdom with Zimbabwean music legend Thomas Mapfumo and his band Blacks Unlimited. I even got my sea legs performing in the orchestra aboard the Island Princess and the Grand Princess cruise liners! The cruise ships sent me around the Mediterranean, across the Atlantic, through the Carribbean to Colombia, along the Panama Canal, up the coast of Mexico, and finally dodging icebergs on the Alaskan Coastline! And last but not least, I got the chance to play cutting-edge jazz at festivals in Taiwan and China.

As a friend of
mine once said, "Your horn is a magic wand. Just point it the direction you want to go, and it will take you there!" Truer words were ne'er spoken. If you want your music to take you places, studying with me is a great place to start.

Come join the music, and let's go places!

I don't just teach. I instill values into my students to ensure that they achieve their goals. Thomas M. Sterner, a renowned philosopher and jazz pianist once wrote, "Everything in life worth achieving requires practice." I instill this philosophy into my students. I believe that it is something they can reflect on and use in any aspect of their life. I help my students learn to enjoy the process of development. I applaud them when they are doing well, showing how excited I am when they achieve a goal. Even the smallest amount of progress is still progress. I help my students understand this and enjoy this progress so that they can continue to work hard at becoming the best musician they can be.

About Avys
I am a saxophonist, composer, teacher and nurturer. I studied music and jazz at Clayton State University, as well as Georgia State University. I have been performing and teaching saxophone for several years. I am the founder of the Atlanta native band FreeTheZodiac, and frequently play with several other local bands.
I enjoy watching my students develop as musicians. Students will find that I'm just as excited to see them progress as they are, perhaps even more so. I encourage and motivate them to achieve the goals they have set, as well as give them the tools necessary to do so. Students can expect to gain an appreciation for their personal growth and will enjoy the process as much as they will enjoy the end product.
My job is to be both a resource and guide throughout the student's process in learning saxophone. I will implement stude
nts with skills that will not only develop them as musicians but will develop them as individuals. Students will find that many of the qualities we instill during lessons can be applied to other areas of their lives. They will also discover that enjoying the process of learning music, including its successes and failures, is a trait that will help them succeed at any task they endeavor.

I have been playing the Saxophone for 17 years, played at Bard College, participated in a jazz band, competed at NYSSMA 4 times, and received a perfect score for every performance. Currently I have been teaching a 10 year old how to play, so I am experienced with beginners and intermediate levels. I like to make my lessons fun yet challenging, I encourage and push my students to be the best possible musicians. I play along with every one of my students, and enjoy it just as much as them.

About Cory
Hello there!

I have been playing the saxophone for 17 years now. I have competed in saxophone competitions, was apart of a jazz band all through high school, was apart of the school's marching band, and participated in NYSSMA 4 years in a row and received a perfect score every year.

I still play my saxophone almost everyday! I cherish the joy it brings to others around me when I play. Growing up I would practice the saxophone for so many hours that it was only natural that my little brother picked up the saxophone as he enters middle school. Over the past four years he has received personal one-on-one lessons from me. Since my teaching structure was based around a fun environment, many of his classmates and friends requested lessons from me which I happily agreed to.

I look forward to working with students that want to start their lif
elong enjoyment with the saxophone!
