My son who plays in high school honors band is taking alto sax lessons with Maureen for past few months. Maureen is an amazing teacher, very detail oriented focused. My son has learned advanced techniques and won few medals at state level with superior rating of 1. I would highly recommend Maureen, she is a fabulous saxophone teacher who is actively involved and renowned personality in music community with playing in many DC metro area concerts. My son enjoys every lesson and will be continuing to be her student in coming year.

My philosophy on teaching revolves around the idea that on the foundation of instrumental technique and functional ear training, all other facets of music are made easier.
Developing instrumental technique teaches the student how to assess and target their weaknesses. This is necessary to make the process efficient. I work with students to create a plan so that they can develop quickly while practicing a reasonable amount. I know their lives are busy enough.
Functional ear training is a skill that not only makes playing music easier, but it also makes listening to music more enjoyable! This is a skill the student keeps for the rest of their lives, regardless of whether or not they continue to play their instrument as an adult.
For jazz music specifically, if the student wants to go down that road, I find it imperative to make sure the history of the music goes hand in hand with the craft of the music. The study of history gives greater context to the music we listen to, which ...

Online Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone playing has been a part of my life from as early as remember. My father was a jazz saxophonist and this inadvertently led me toward a similar path. I have been playing professionally since the age of 18 and play gigs every week in the set coast area. I have studied with some of the best saxophone teachers on the planet at Berklee, and constantly draw on information they passed along to me when expressing my style of teaching. I think people automatically assume that if you play saxophone you must play jazz, but I feel that there are so many stylistic opportunities with this flexible instrument. i've managed to play on gigs of all genres with what I know and the approach I take to playing. In my lessons I like to focus on fundamentals but then on how such fundamentals can be applied to different playing situations. From the beginner to Immediate player I really try to focus on sound quality and production, finger technique, time, articulation, theory and building a ...

What a great experience I’ve had taking lessons from Cameron over the years. Not only is so kind hearted and organized but he knows his stuff and is an amazing player/teacher. With him I learned how to improve my sound production/embouchure, technique, time and overall musicality. He explains it all so well! I’d highly recommend. Thanks Cam!!
