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.
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!!!
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 ...

I am a student focused teacher who believes that each student learns differently. I focus on the foundations of music theory, as well as healthy practice habits in order to help my students succeed in any musical setting. I can help you get started on an instrument, improve your current abilities, work on school band and orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, prepare for college auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.
I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique. For saxophone I also address reeds, mouthpieces, embouchure, tonal conception and listening to great players.

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