Susan was very nice and also very easy to understand. She was funny and incorporated jokes within the lesson and also shared some of her own experiences with the piano with me. Overall, it was a very good lesson and i cannot wait for the next one.

I have a 14 year old who has had the privilege to have Susan teach him the tenor sax - and he has advanced remarkably in a short time! She has worked with him in music tastes, etc... The take lessons service has been easy to set up and utilize, too. I would HIGHLY recommend...Excellent instructor (and good location for Delaware County folks) You won't be disappointed!

I am so glad to have found Susan! She is wonderful with my daughter, very professional, patient and reliable. As an experienced teacher, she seems to know exactly how to work with each child at there own level and pace. She always greets us with a huge smile. I would highly recommend her to any parent!

Tina D.

Prospect Park, PA

I've played saxophone for about 18 years. I enjoy teaching all levels of saxophone students! Saxophone is a fun and versatile instrument.

About Tina

I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundam
entals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, music stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

Miguel H.

Henrico, VA

My teaching philosophy has been inspired by former teachers whose concepts have been very influential on my life as a musician and teacher. A teacher should lead by example. I believe core fundamentals should be addressed when a student is in his or her early stages of learning. These fundamentals are: sound, theory, scales and improvisation. All of these fundamentals are essential in the growth of a young musician and will set the student on a path to success.

About Miguel

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should have their own horn

*** Specialties ***
I play alot of jazz, but i am also able to play funk, R&B, classical and latin music. I also have been very fortunate to study with such greats as: Greg Osby, Bill Pierce, Branford Marsalis, and many others. Throughout my time at Berklee I was given many hand outs on advanced approaches to music. I would love to share them with more people. I am very comfortable teaching beginners to advanced players.

Matthew M.

Philadelphia, PA

Even though I have only been teaching saxophone for a couple years, I feel like I can make you reach your full potential. I have been playing sax for 13 years, and have studied many different styles of music. I have had the opportunity to take lessons from some very fine teachers, and I incorporate their styles into my own. I stress the fundamentals in my lessons, but also want to make sure students are playing music that they enjoy. I aim to help every student become musician they want to be.

He received a Bachelors degree in Jazz Performance from Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA in May 2014. He can teach any saxophone in any style. His teaching style looks to bring out the most in every student by working on the fundamental aspects of music and the saxophone while at the same time helping each and every student become the musician they aspire to be.
