Music is, and has always been, an obsession for me.

No one had to force me to practice, or transcribe, or listen. It's just something I love to do.

You can force yourself to learn music. But it's so much easier, and more fulfilling, when it's something that excites you; when you can't wait to pick up the horn.

Every student has their own version of this: a lens through which everything about music feels exciting and natural. My job as a teacher is to help you discover it.

For beginners, you might call this developing an interest or passion for music. Whether you're young or old, this is one of my favorite challenges as a teacher.

For advanced players, it may be more about finding your voice, or dealing with issues of ego, purpose, technique, etc. Having spent years studying with some of the best musicians in the world (Joe Lovano, Danilo Perez, John Patittucci, Kenny Werner, George Garzone, and others), I combine lessons from the masters with my own approach to help ...

About Dan

Originally from San Francisco, I have been playing saxophone for nearly 20 years. I have been fortunate to perform all over the world, including recent tours in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Panama, and Costa Rica, and have shared the stage with many great artists, including Danilo Perez, Kenny Werner,

I look forward to my lessons with Dan every week. I’m a beginner alto player and Dan does a great job patiently answering all my questions and giving comprehensive advice. He’s very analytical and gives you the detailed context of why what you’re learning is important and how it fits into the context of playing in a band, different styles etc. He will flex lessons based on what you need to know but also what you’re interested in. Most importantly he’s fun and just an all around great guy. He’s the man, what else can I say.

Dan is kind and caring. He was very patient going over the super basics with a brand-new player! He gave good, clear instruction, and is focused on mastering the fundamentals so players can start with good habits and good sound, and so players can make future advancements more smoothly.
Lenka
Dan is a fountain of knowledge; an incredibly talented and eclectic artist. I have been struggling with alto sax for years but with Dan’s approach, I finally feel, I am making some progress. Dan tailors the lessons to fit your needs; making it challenging, comprehensive, engaging and fun. He helps me transcribe small parts of licks I like, which has been an invaluable experience for me. He makes sure that you REALLY get the material you are studying. Don’t just shake your head and say “yes”.
He is always there to answer your questions (no matter how dumb they may seem), encourages and motivates you.

Tyler M.
Love her teaching, it's so helpful.
Ashley
I am not one to take the time to write a review, but my experience must be shared and voiced. I met Professor Candid in early September. Hesitant to start, she immediately provided me with the safest space to be myself, to express my doubts, and to expand on the craft of music with her guidance. She exceeded my expectations time and time again, giving me endless tips, daily practice routines that not only incorporated vocals but mind, body and soul altogether. She did not hesitate to keep me in mind throughout the week, sending me clips of artists, helping me envision my own personal voice. She is always attentive, extremely patient, and has such grace when communicating with you about everything. I have been a music student for most of my life, have been with a handful of music teachers and she is 1 out of 2 teachers that have fully created a 100% non-judgmental environment for me to grow and learn. She always has a great listening ear and always keeps in mind what your personal goals and intentions are, guiding you with any small or huge dream you have your mind set for. If you’re looking for a professor that will not give up on you, will constantly be available to help you throughout the week, someone that shares her joy, teaches you not only her limitless knowledge on music but her wisdom that will forever leave you with such joy and peace every time you end your class session with her, then do not doubt to take your lessons with her! She is the best out here! Forever giving amazing quality lessons! You won’t regret it, I promise you!

"I have known and worked with Cindy for well over a year to sharpen/maintain speaking skills and to improve my writing. Prior to Covid, we met weekly in a bookstore cafe and during 2020 we have continued via Zoom. As I have been a student of Italian for quite some time, we simply jumped in at an advanced level. Her everyday awareness of spoken Italian is a perfect way to achieve my goals. We have kept the meetings informal and conversational, with homework that varies from text book segments to writing letters to just having conversations about everyday things. I know Cindy also provides a more structured set of lessons and has worked with students of all ages. The best "testimonial" I can give is that I plan to continue to work with Cindy. Any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail."
