Private Saxophone Teacher

I have never had a saxophone lesson in my life, but I taught myself at train stations on the way to rehearsal. In Mexico my friends asked me, "Do you play saxophone?" and I lied and said Yes and my whole career was launched. Now as a professional, I wow the audiences in many different bands and solo.

Wonderful teacher.
Rishi and Ravi C.
I can already sense that my boys are going to have a great learning experience with Isaiah. He caught on to each child’s strengths and areas of growth in the content as well as behavioral differences. He adjusted to each one fluidly and took the time to debrief after the lesson. I’m looking forward to continuing this relationship.
Annie S.
Really brilliant teacher, has taught me saxophone from scratch. Focuses on a full range of skills in every lesson, from sound, technical exercises, jazz theory, improvisation and jazz repertoire. Have loved every lesson, and feel like I've improved significantly. Definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn saxophone, or how to be a jazz musician.

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!

"Dr. Stow was knowledgable in all aspects of the saxophone. As an undergrad there were struggles that all students go through, but Dr. Stow had exemplary answers whenever I needed them. He was an extremely relatable professor and always had several solutions to any playing inquiries I had. I would reccommend him as a private instructor."

""Now that I'm studying with Mike, the efficiency of my practice time is way, way up."

Mike is the first coach who emphasizes "practice the hard parts". So much so that any time a note comes out either not in rhythm, not in pitch, or not a great sound, I have the confidence to stop and repeat the hard part until it's no longer hard. Even when learning to improvise, if the notes I pick on the sax don't match the ones I first heard in my head, I have the confidence to stop and really find those notes that my mind imagined. Eventually I'll be able to hit the ones I intend the first time. He also advocates to always know the purpose of any practicing you're doing---there's no more aimless noodling. Even when I'm jamming, there's a specific goal in mind.

The second thing I really get from Mike is that he expects me to know what notes I'm playing and what role they fill in the key. Formerly my method of improvising was to hunt and peck, occasionally hitting notes outside the key and finding a way to "work them back in". But now, if I'm riffing on the note F in the key of B-flat, Mike wants me to know that that's the 5 of the key. And to also know where the 3 and 7 are---like a home base where you know it's safe to play."
