Paul is a great teacher in general. He's a good bass guitar player and has some innovative ways to teach on that instrument, but his approach would work for anything.

Alex K.

Chicago, IL

I have been playing saxophone for 12 years, and I look forward to being able to share some of my knowledge and experience with you! I have a BA in Jazz Studies from Columbia College Chicago, and learned from many incredible performing artists and faculty while I studied there.

While I teach mostly classical and jazz saxophone, I also have experience with pop, rock, funk, etc., so nothing is off limits here!

About Alex

I have been playing music since the age of seven, starting on piano before switching to saxophone. Throughout elementary and high-school I received private instruction in both classical and jazz, and performed with a variety of ensembles including concert bands, saxophone quartets, jazz big bands and combos, funk bands, a Motown cover band, and a ska band. I then attended Columbia College Chicago, performing in their top jazz combo and leading the saxophone section of their big band for three years. I was fortunate to be able to study privately with both Geof Bradfield and Scott Burns during my time there as well. I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Studies. I also had the opportunity to perform with and receive master class instruction from many great artists such ...

About Jon

Jon N. was born and raised in Mexico City and is proudly an American citizen. He has been performing since the age of three, on several instruments, studying music since fourteen, and still takes lessons to this day. What's not to love? He is proud to teach at all levels, including many professional musicians with master’s degrees, adult beginners, and of course, kids of all ages between 8 and 75. They are encouraged to select the music they want to learn, so we have worked on classical music and original compositions, which I also coach, jazz, blues, pop, rock, the Great American Songbook, reggae, seven different kinds of Jewish music, and other ethnic music from all over the globe. Frequently the younger students will request a tune I've never heard, but I magically transform ...
