I whole-heartedly recommend Ryan as a private instructor. My middle school-aged son had enjoyed learning to play saxophone in his school band, but towards the end of his 1st year was getting bored by the slow pace. After beginning lessons w Ryan (through the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music) his interest, enthusiasm & skill improved dramatically & he began to excel as a musician. Ryan was soon guiding him through more complicated compositions, and the joy of playing was evident every time my son picked up his sax. With Ryan’s training, he learned to prepare for auditions, and as a result has won a seat (and solos!) in several State & city select bands, jazz ensembles and every group his school has to offer.

Ryan’s personality was a great fit for my son. He’s very professional, while being completely approachable, patient & encouraging, and his love of music is passed along to his students. His versatility & broad knowledge of musical genres allow him to introduce new directions for his students to explore. With Ryan, my son studied classical compositions and also deepened his interest in Jazz. The chance to work with Ryan on his improv skills was very valuable to him...it brought a new level of confidence & comfort to his playing.

I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a private music instructor, either for themselves or for their son or daughter!

I've been teaching Saxophone for 15 years and my students have gone on to College, and other performing goals.I use a variety of books from the typical book you would use as a student in a band program to a more advanced method for other players. Each student is different so I try to evolve to meet their specific needs and learning styles. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! I plan and offer yearly student performances to give students a practical application to their instruction.

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

I had an opportunity to polish up my language skill with an exceptional guidance I received from Dan over the past few years. As English is my third language, I have always encountered sets of challenges to become highly proficient at it post high school age. My grammar, listening and writing skills, just to name a few, have improved leaps and bounds by having to work with Dan one on one. His methodical approach and patience in teaching transcends any area of studies whether it be music or language. I would highly recommend Dan for any future students out there.

Dan taught me voice after I took a break from singing for a while. I had a lot of tongue tension and reverted to old habits with bad posture. Unlike my past instructors, he acquainted me with Alexander Technique for better awareness of my muscle tension to sing better. He also advised me to participate in classes like ballet outside of voice to supplement some of my problems with posture. Dan is a great communicator and genuinely wants to help you improve your instrument. Best teacher ever!

I have been teaching Clarinet and Saxophone in Maryland for 5 years. I accept students of all ages and ability levels. Whether you are preparing for an audition or just getting started, I can help show you the skills you need to be successful. My curriculum is heavily focused on air and breathing, but also includes basic music theory and history. The only requirement is effort!

I've been performing for 10 years and teaching for 6 years. I have experience in many genres, but I mostly have stuck to classical music. I can help with everything from beginning lessons to preparing for an audition and exploring careers in music. My lessons are individually crafted based on the interests and skill level of the student, but always with a focus on solid fundamentals of music and saxophone. Learning an instrument and discovering music are the most rewarding experiences you can have, and getting to know my students is important so that I can adjust my teaching style and they remain curious and motivated. Send me a message and lets talk saxophone!

My personally dra

Hi there! I am a classically trained saxophonist with a Masters from Peabody Conservatory and over 16 years of teaching experience. I tailor my lessons based on your interests and skill level, finding pieces you enjoy which challenge you. I can also give you a strong sense of the fundamentals, focusing on intonation, finger technique, vibrato and tone. Looking forward to hearing from you!

About Maureen
Welcome to online saxophone lessons! While studying with me we will focus on practice techniques to develop your speed, vibrato and intonation (one of the most important aspects of a good sound!) For students in grade school, lessons can help your skills in band class and in participation in solo and ensemble. It is a great chance to perform works before doing an important audition! In my private teaching I have also focused on playing group pieces with my own arrangements of pop music, like Usher and Rihanna! I find it really enjoyable and it allows my students to challenge themselves while working in a different format than they are used to.

I learned classical saxophone at Peabody Conservatory in Maryland, where I have a bachelor's and master's degree. I performed in wind ensemble and quartets. Currently I play in the Capital Wind Sy
mphony in D.C., where we perform concert pieces for wind ensemble. I also teach at the Levine School of Music, which is very exciting since I studied there as a teenager! Thanks for your interest and I look forward to working with you!
