Jefrey B.

Brooklyn, NY

I've been playing sax for 16 years now with a focus on blues and rock. My strength is TONE! Getting a strong sound so the world can hear your music! I play tenor mainly but also play alto and soprano.

About Jefrey

I am a working multi instrumentalist here in Brooklyn, New York. I've played guitar and bass for 33 years now and have been playing saxophone now for that last 16 1/2 of those lovely years. Most of my gigs are saxophone gigs now and I love that though I do love to play my strings too! I'm largely self taught though have had the good fortune to study with some terrific players including Tim Price. I have a lot to offer a beginning student and my focus is on improvisation be it blues, jazz, rock n roll or whatever freaky style you can dream up! My approach is relaxed, fun and supportive. We'll laugh a lot while we play our horns together! Fun is essential to music and life, that's the vibe!!!

Jef is a co-worker of mine at a music school in Manhattan. He has an incredible rapport with his students. He is patient, supportive, and focused. I highly recommend Jef whether you are a serious player or looking to have fun.

I took guitar lessons with Jef a few years ago at his shop. He was always a very patient and attentive teacher. He also asked me a lot of questions about what kind of music I was interested in playing, what aspects of a particular style were interesting to me. There was one very memorable lesson when he had picked out some records he thought would relate to what I was learning and played them for me. We listened and talked about them and then played some more. Jef's teaching was well rounded and very enriching. More than just improving technically, I was encouraged to figure out what aspects of the instrument I related to most, and thereby was able to develop my own sense of style.

Jef is a fantastic music instructor--period! Jef is one of those rare individuals who is an amazing creative artist AND teacher. Learning from Jef is a beautiful experience--he couldn't be more a more genuine and down to earth person and he has a wonderful gift to be able to impart musical skills and concepts to his students in a way that is unique and individual to each of his pupils. I've had the privilege of studying with Jef for a number of years and can't recommend him highly enough to anyone interested in pursuing Guitar, Bass Guitar or Saxophone instruction. It doesn't matter what your skill level is, you will learn and grow with this guy. He's a seasoned veteran performing and recording musician in many different styles and he knows how to connect with his students. Like a doctor, he diagnoses each student and situation and prescribes just the right medicine to make things move in the right direction. Look no further people, study music with Jef and you'll be happy you did!!!

Matt L.

Brooklyn, NY

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are children and adolescents who are looking to pursue music when they go to college or auditioning for state and regional band programs. Many of my students are very busy adults who are either looking to pick up an instrument for the first time as an ...

Erika F.

Jersey City, NJ

I have taught a variety of different levels throughout the years, from beginners to advanced players, in private and group settings.

About Erika

My name is Erika and music has always been an essential part of my life! As soon as the cliche dream of becoming an astronaut was out of my mind, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in music- my dream was to become a professional pit orchestra musician on Broadway. I attended Ithaca College and received my bachelors degree in music education and saxophone performance, where I quickly learned that I enjoyed teaching as much as performing! I loved conducting high school band and teaching private and group instrumental lessons. I was a member of the pit orchestra in several collegiate and professional musical productions, as well as the alto saxophone player of Zephyr Saxophone Quartet. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing ping pong, taking pictures and exploring new ...

Erica is a great teacher. She works with you to figure out what is it that you are looking for to achieve, and she roots the lessons around the musical areas of concern. She is a great musician and she is good at sharing her knowledge in a simple manner that makes learning enjoyable. She has students of all levels and ages, and it always amazes me when I show up for my class and she have just finished a few classes on a Sunday afternoon, but she is still enthusiastic and willing to teach and enjoy the music process. Thank you Erica.

I learned saxophone for a year back in 2007 and haven't played since. I was looking for someone who can get me started again after such a long gap. Over the past month Erika has been helping me get back and move forward. I find Erika to be knowledgeable, patient and keeps things at a lively pace without stagnation. She also made corrections to my embouchure, breath support and reeds, which seem to be improving my playing. So thanks to Erika. I look forward to continue learning and hope this first hand information helps anyone in search of a good saxophone teacher in and around Jersey City.
