Aaron has really inspired my son to pick up the Sax again after a six month hiatus. Aaron pushes him musically and challenges him daily on scale work, music theory and song performance. I could not be happier.
Connie P.
Aaron was patience and she felt comfortable with him.
Lee
I have been taking soprano saxophone lessons with Aaron for about 8.5 months now. Aaron is enthusiastic, energetic and knowledgeable. His serious training shines through and he encourages your development along the lines that the student desires. Your musical goals become his for you. I am fortunate to have him as my teacher.

I love working with brand new beginners all the way seasoned players who might be prepping for music college. I like to keep an fun atmosphere around the lesson and try to find out what drives my students.

We'll work through pieces from school and expand into topics such as improvisation, reading, music theory, and finding inspiration from great players. I have a jazz background, and love working with aspiring jazz musicians as well.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been teaching privately and in colleges/schools for over 15 years. For all levels, I will help you develop excellent technique on the saxophone and build a strong foundation in music theory. For advanced/intermediate students, I also teach jazz improvisation, if you’re interested! Please bring in the music and songs you want to work on. I believe lessons should be fun and interesting while you learn great stuff, too!

About Dan

Hi, I’m a professional tenor and soprano saxophonist. I graduated from William Paterson University with a Bachelors in Jazz Performance. I also have an MA in Jazz History and Research from Rutgers University. I enjoy helping students to develop improved technique, sight reading, and musicality.

Great lesson, finds your weaknesses and then givesYou exercises so you can work on improving them.
Jamal
I've been receiving instruction from Dan for almost a month, and I'm very impressed with my progression. Dan is a very patient, friendly and knowledgeable teacher who cares about my progress and success as a musician. I’ve seen improvement in my embouchure, increased my sight reading speed, and my intonation. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in improving their ability to play the saxophone.
Al
Before I engaged Dan Faulk as a teacher, I knew of him as one of the preeminent voices on the tenor saxophone. I had seen him in performance several times and heard him on recordings. I reached out to him for lessons because I knew that he was a great player who could likely help me achieve my goal of becoming a musician able to improvise in the jazz idiom. What I did not know until my first encounter with him was how easy it would be to work with Dan. By that, I in no way mean to suggest that he is a pushover or that my lessons were not serious, rigorous or challenging. What I mean is that Dan is the rare instructor who has the ability to help you stay focused and positive while at the same time challenging you in a disciplined and nurturing way. With his guidance, I certainly became a better musician in every respect.

One of the most important things about my time with Dan is that fact that he used a pedagogical framework that clearly conveyed for me at the outset the work necessary for me to become an effective improvising musician. Dan is extremely knowledgeable about the inner workings and alternative underlying theories of jazz improvisation because he has played with and studied with many of the luminaries of jazz, and he knows how to structure and present this information. With his vast knowledge and desire to facilitate my musical growth, Dan kept me on task during our twice a month sessions and was always available in between sessions for any questions I might have had.

In short, I am very happy that I reached to Dan for lessons as he is a wonderful and enthusiastic teacher.

"Out of all teachers and Gleb is the expert in so many ways teaching and applying the lessons to stick and to create a great Saxaphone player. He has so many techniques in his arsenal to make any student become a Saxaphone player and a good one. His patience, his depth of understanding the music and the student and how to apply make it click. He works for the music and for the student rather than anything else. Gleb, please keep on teaching. You aren't just a teacher, you are a music therapist and a professional one of a kind. You know the ins and outs and from my experience with my child I have seen your artful and dedicated work that money cant really pay it. THANK YOU!"
