Private Saxophone Teacher

I have had many successful students in my nearly 10 years teaching saxophone! I always gear lessons toward the individual student's musical goals and interests and I am constantly reinforcing good technique and practice habits. My favorite genre to teach is jazz, but I can help you with classical and pop music, too!

About Michael

I received my bachelors degree in music education and jazz studies from Western Michigan University, and my master's in jazz studies from Temple University in Philadelphia. I have played saxophone, flute and clarinet professionally in many different settings. My favorite genre to play and teach

I’m very fortunate to be able to learn from Michael. I’ve been working with him for two years now. Since COVID we have been doing lessons online and it’s working well. He is a very talented musician and teacher. Also a very kind and supportive person.
Hugh
Michael introduced my 10 year old kid to saxophone. Lessons were in person and online. My daughter enjoyed them greatly and progressed well, learning to read music and play by ear. He was creative, nurturing and supportive to a new learner. He left quite a lasting impression. We were sad to see him leave the area.
Bobby
I've been with Micheal for over two years now and he has helped me a ton. He's helped my technique, understanding of theory and the music I'm playing. I have recently started flute and he has given me great guidance on how I can improve and it has help tremendously.
Out of all the private lesson teachers I've had, Micheal is by far the best. I highly recommend him.

Saxophone is my life! I have played saxophone for 20 years and nothing makes me happier than sharing my knowledge with others. I have a BM Jazz Studies/Saxophone Performance from Western Michigan University.
While my passion is jazz, I also have plenty of classical experience. I love teaching saxophone!!

About Sean

When I was 12 or 13 I heard John Coltrane's masterpiece album 'Giant Steps' for the first time. From then on I was absolutely magnetized to the saxophone and devoted my life to studying the great art form of jazz. I have come to believe that the only thing better than playing music is sharing music

Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been playing the saxophone since I was 9 years old, and was tutoring younger band students since 10 years old. Once I started college, about 5 years ago, I started teaching saxophone lessons professionally.

Lessons structures vary depending on the student's playing level. Prior to the first lesson, I work with all students to understand their goal(s) so we can structure the lesson to achieve these goals.
With complete beginners, after the first lesson you can expect to learn how to put the instrument together and even play a short song. In our later lessons we talk about instrument basics such as breath control, embouchure, hand position, tuning, and more. With my intermediate students we focus the first half of the lesson on basics/technique/scales while the second half we work on the music that we have selected. I include some basic music theory in all lessons.

For my lessons, I use a technique book and song book, varying on the students level. I provide extra sheet ...

Private Saxophone Teacher

Hello! I have over 25 years of professional saxophone and clarinet playing experience. I've played and recorded many different styles with many different bands, orchestras, and jazz ensembles.

I teach clarinet and saxophone on all levels. I can teach beginners the basics of fingering, tone, music reading, theory, etc. I can help intermediate students advance in their playing prowess. I can get adults who haven't played in a while back into playing shape. And, for more advanced students, I can teach jazz improvisation. So, I cater my teaching to your desires and goals!

I'm able to teach adults and teenagers (age 12 and up) and I'm open to any frequency that fits your budget and desires (once a week, once every two weeks, twice a week, etc.).

I've played clarinet and sax for over 40 years, playing throughout grammar school, high school, and college. I attended University of California at Berkeley where I played in the marching band and in various jazz bands, orchestras, and ensembles. After graduating I've played professionally ever sinc
