Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophonist, Composer, Educator.
21 years of practice, 10 years of teaching, 1 MASTER of Pedagogy, 2 BACHELORS in Classical and Jazz Performance (New School, NY).

My motto is efficient work for maximum pleasure. The idea is to build up a strong foundation of basic technique of the instrument (body, sound, air, time) in order to quickly come to play along your music idols.

With more than 20 years of practice and more than a decade of experience teaching, I've seen and gone through all kinds of mistakes myself which allows me to really know the correct and sane way to play saxophone, effortlessly and beautifully. Moreover, I have played all kinds of music through the years going from Bach to John Cage, from pop to classical to jazz, afro-cuban, brazilian, etc. Therefore, I'll be able to adapt my teaching specifically to your goals and to enlarge your scope of knowledge.

Caution : risks of addiction, immense satisfaction and personal development.

Despite the covid and the distance, the courses are online. Alain is very pedagogical and patient (I'm blond and not so young), and of course a very good saxophonist. I highly recommend him.
With Alain you will progress quickly.

Alain's is an incredibly gifted saxophone teacher. He has been teaching our son who absolutely loves him. His patience and thorough understanding of the music make it a pleasurable experience for all. It is a delight to witness Alain's bring music to life to a teenager who is enjoying the process.
Highly recommended,

Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been training on the saxophone for upwards of twelve years! I have been giving lessons since 2015, and I am qualified to teach beginner to advanced players. I've earned top chairs in my county, district, and state, and students of mine have gone on to do the same in their own ensembles! I have also played in select honors bands, such as the Great American Marching Band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am a skilled teacher, having served as a middle school teacher's assistant and summer camp music instructor. My prices are competitive because I simply want to share the joy of music with you or your student!

What to expect when you take lessons with me:

-Flexible scheduling
-A judgement-free, creative environment!
-A free PDF of the saxophone fundamentals workbook with which I teach, as a supplement to personalized lesson-planning.

(CANCELLATION POLICY: I will do my best to reschedule lessons with students if I am notified at least 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, the ...

Private Saxophone Teacher

With over 20 years as a professional saxophonist and 15 years teaching experience I know the demands of a performing musician professionally and academically. I teach students how to produce a good tone quality with characteristic vibrato. I can teach students to become good at reading music. Students who are interested in jazz or pop styles of music will be taught improvisation techniques and how to play by ear.

About Carl

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the ti

Private Saxophone Teacher

Professional saxophonist, trained at the nations top music schools, I teach students of all levels and ages, whether just beginning or an experienced player. I have a great amount of experience in both classical and jazz and have been playing for about 21 years myself.

In addition to helping students establish solid fundamentals, I can help you reach your goals, whether that be through working on classical solo repertoire, jazz and improvisation, band music, preparing for a competition or audition, and more. I try to make lessons fun and enjoyable for the student.

If you don't live near me, online lessons are a great alternative to in person lessons. I have had success teaching many students of various abilities and ages throughout the country and abroad online! I have taught online students from 26 different states and 3 other countries.

"Tony is terrific. He's full of enthusiasm for the saxophone and brings a great deal of encouragement and positivity needed when you're starting out. He's also very capable of adjusting his teaching style to reflect the interests and needs of the student. For example, I've got some music reading skill, so Tony adjusted the lessons to reflect that. He and I txt when I have a question during the week. He's always encouraging."

"Dr. Wen was the best professor and lesson instructor I have ever had. I took lessons with him for over seven years starting in high school and throughout my entire college. He shares his expertise in music theory, techniques, and instrument mechanics. He really helped me gain confidence in my playing abilities, showed me how I should be practicing in order to get the most of each rehearsal, and taught me so much about myself as a player. His ability to instruct on every aspect of playing the instrument is something I really admire. Need help rhythmically? He will help you understand time, measurement, and notes. Need help technically? He has all the ways to practice to get that much closer to perfection and how to maintain it. Need help with scales? He will help you to truly understand the scale in order for you to play it better. Not only will he help with the "how-tos," he will explain the why. Needing help with breathing techniques or articulations? He will take you through exercises that will enhance every aspect of your playing. He sets the standards high, and helps you reach your goals. I will always recommend Dr. Wen!"
