Mike has been working with my 12 year old son to improve his sax skills over the last 4 months. They have virtual lessons for 30-45 minutes once per week. I'm absolutely amazed by my son's progress and newfound excitement for playing the sax. Mike has done so much to help him improve his skills and confidence! My son says he feels like he's improved so much and learned some great techniques. He says Mike is patient and "really knows his stuff and taught me some cool jazz stuff too!" I would definitely recommend him! Thanks Mike!

Michael is an excellent teacher and he was so patient with my daughter (5th grade). She was way ahead of the other students in her class and he found additional music for her to learn so she wasn't bored.

When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him.

What kind of music do you like? Have you tried learning music from a method book and just didn't have fun? Over the past 5 years of teaching several instruments I have developed a system of learning songs that YOU love and learn what music is about. With the songs you want to learn, we talk about articulation, intonation, and many exercises to help you become better. We can talk about reed care, instrument care as well!

Brandon is fantastic. I don't know that he's ever given me a word of bad advice, and has been a HUGE help in getting my career as a producer and narrator off the ground. He's incredibly knowledgeable and skillful, and my experiences in both hiring him and learning from him have been absolutely fantastic. I would heartily recommend him!

Online Saxophone Teacher

I've been playing saxophone for 15 years, and I've picked up some cool tricks along the way! Saxophone lessons are custom tailored to the student's individual skill level.

Beginners learn basic technique and a foundation of good habits to build on!

Intermediate players challenge themselves with more difficult pieces, requiring use of more refined techniques.

Advanced players prepare and perform advanced pieces, and work on the most advanced techniques.

About Imraan

I'm a pro saxophonist from NYC, currently living in Raleigh NC. In the last 5 years, I have been performing with various bands in the area, spanning rock, funk, soul, Latin, and especially jazz. Performing has taken me to France, Switzerland, Italy, China, and most recently aboard luxury cruise

When I asked my son how his lesson went he said “I struck gold”. Imraan is amazing!
Sal
An excellent teacher. He keeps my son Sal interested and engaged with every lesson. Sal gets to choose some of the music he works on, and Imraan makes it into a lesson. Sal has been doing much better in band class, I recommend him!
Livia C.
Excellent

My son Nicholas, 10 yrs old, has been taking saxophone lessons with Imraan for about a month. Searching for a young motivated teacher who is up to date with todays music is very difficult. My fear was for Nicholas to get discouraged in his saxophone playing and music with a non motivated instructor.
Imraan has been the perfect match for Nick. He is not only an excellent saxophone player but a great instructor. He motivates my son with his saxophone playing, has patients with his teachings and with kids, is up to date with todays music and most important, my son cant wait for his next lesson.

Imraan, Im glad we met you and look forward to hearing my son play in concert with you someday.

"Playing the sax has been my life-long dream. I remember how once, while watching online tutorials on YouTube, I came across one from Nick, in which he was showing how to play scales – in a very simple way. My gut feeling told me to reach out and communicate exactly with him. He then responded, advised me what instrument to choose, and we started training, which I not in the least regret. I am having classes with Nick online, which may seem a bit more complicated than face-to-face. However, I’m satisfied with the results and, especially, with the teacher’s approach. I am keen on his punctuality, professionalism, advice and recommendations. What’s more, he’s always willing to respond and counsel even beyond the planned lesson. I call him ‘my saxophone guru’! I wish him creative wins and new accomplishments. An absolutely outstanding teacher, that’s who he is! I will be his student as long as time allows. And the wish is there always. Thank you, Nick!"

"We have had an excellent experience with Lonze. He is great with my 10 year old son who is taking music lessons for the first time. After just 3 lessons, I am amazed at the knowledge and skills my son has picked up. Lonze was great at communicating right from the start, promptly answering all of my questions and even sharing some tips and tricks to make sure we got off to a smooth start. During lessons, Lonze is patient and encouraging, and has a great way of weaving in all aspects of musicianship beyond just focusing on the instrument - tempo, breathing, reading music, etc. He makes it a point to emphasize a love for playing music and that has been a great motivator for my son to actually want to practice every day. I'm grateful that we found Lonze and would recommend him to anyone!"
