Private Saxophone Teacher

My objective as a teacher is to ensure I am positioned to motivate students to develop their careers in music and also in critical thinking — to ensure students establish a connection with their audiences through live performances and meet the requirements of professional musicians in the current musical climate.

My approach to private lessons builds from two principles: creative thinking and application. To that end, I explicitly incorporate questions for the students in my lesson plan. I encourage students to ask questions and help them to solve the problems themselves.

About kenny

I believe in private lessons and I’ve been teaching since 2004 and this is what I learned from my previous students. To learn effectively and efficiently, you have to practice and find your way to get better every practice session. I will teach you how to become an artist, saxophonist, musician, an

Hi! I have a Bachelors in Music Education and have experience teaching many beginning students! I have 3 children and decided to give up regular teaching to be with them. I believe that tone production is the most important area of study. It doesn’t matter what you can play if it doesn’t sound good. I can’t wait to help more students love to “play” on their instruments!

About Kim

Hello! I started my love of music at a young age with my family playing and singing at family functions. That turned into a wanting to learn how to play the flute and I went up through high school with that instrument. After high school I branched out more into vocal performance. After that I j

With over 20 years as a professional saxophonist and 15 years teaching experience I know the demands of a performing musician professionally and academically. I teach students how to produce a good tone quality with characteristic vibrato. I can teach students to become good at reading music. Students who are interested in jazz or pop styles of music will be taught improvisation techniques and how to play by ear.

About Carl

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the t

I teach saxophone lessons to students of all abilities, ages, and interests. A working professional musician and current graduate student at New England Conservatory, I offer online saxophone lessons that include instrumental technique, expression, and different styles of music. Ear training, sight reading, and rhythm are included as the student develops. Most importantly, studying any musical instrument is a fun and gratifying experience.

Me and my 12-year-old son started saxophone two years ago together. Ian had a great guide to us who had never played the instrument. My growth is slow due to age issues, (of course satisfied) but my son's growth was great. My son now has a great deal of confidence as a jazz player, and he was able to work on other things positively too. We met Ian then became more into music and jazz. He is patient and will tell you until we can do. Ian is mainly jazz, but he is also very familiar with brass band and classical saxophone too. He is a working musician who do live performance, gig, and compose in various places. He loves music from the heart, his solo is so beatuiful. Ian's lessons has changed our life. We really grateful for giving us his time.

""Cool, amazing, fun, and I don't know what else" said my 9 year old son who has taken 4 weekly beginner lessons with Carl. "Carl will go at your own pace. He gives advice and will do a duet if you want him to with you. He is a great saxophone player."

We had to set up our home computer for web chat, but it seems to work very well and we can definitely hear my son's improvement week to week (he just started playing this fall). Carl is very patient and will send you music files and links that he thinks will help your student. Overall four thumbs up from the student and his (non-saxophone playing) parent."
