Private Saxophone Teacher

Hi! I have a Bachelors in Music Education and have experience teaching many beginning students! I have 3 children and decided to give up regular teaching to be with them. I believe that tone production is the most important area of study. It doesn’t matter what you can play if it doesn’t sound good. I can’t wait to help more students love to “play” on their instruments!

I have played saxophone since I was in 5th grade. I have been in a variety of groups over the years; rock, funk, punk, jazz quartets and big-band jazz, and the experimental use of electronics. You will learn proper breath (dynamics) and embouchure control, tonguing techniques, standard and alternate fingerings, approaches to improvisation and assistance with a varied repertoire for performance. I own a 1967 Beuscher alto saxophone and an Elkhart C-tenor saxophone. My home studio has recording capability which I use to record lessons when they are needed for review. Ear training is a crucial part to music on any level, and I encourage playing by ear as an important element to improvisation and music appreciation. My lessons are fun, informative, and creative!

If you're an adult looking for a new hobby, or a parent looking for a musical activity for your child, the saxophone is a great and fun instrument for anyone. It's easy to learn and fun to practice. Try your hand at Jazz or Classical styles with these lessons!

About Lance

Ever been told that you’re "a little pitchy," or that you “just need to give it more support?” Tips like these often leave people frustrated because they don’t actually give anyone a plan for improvement. In my lessons we will focus on real, specific issues, and make sure you have a great plan for

He is very nice, patient to my 8 years son. The lesson are going very good.
Jasmine
Lance is my first voice teacher. I decided to take lessons in preparation for reading poetry and short stories. Lance encouraged me to keep singing because he believes that I have a great voice. After practicing his exercises, reading his simplified approach to music theory and singing a few songs, I heard a marked difference in my voice and feel compelled to continue this journey.

Above all, I've benefited from Lance's pleasant, encouraging approach and am very excited about where this new journey can take me.

I see improvement already in my vocal abilities with my first lesson. I enjoyed the lesson much. Now, I have got to do my homework to be my best.

I will also teach you a strong foundation of music theory so you will be prepared to learn and/or write music of your choosing.

Very personable, easy to talk to, great listener, cater the lesson to the student's level and interest. I love finding out what music the student likes, so we can incorporate that into sax lessons! During the quarantine, I have enjoyed teaching via video chat, figuring out ways to get students excited about music, creating innovative methods to keep them motivated to practice.

About Kevin

I have played professionally 10 years and taught lessons 6 years. I love learning what my student's interests are, like favorite genre, artist and song, to inspire them to keep practicing and improving. I feel it's a balance between showing students the fun, creative side of music and teaching them

Josephine
Kevin has been a fantastic teacher for my 10 year old son, who went from a casual interest in the saxophone to being excited to take lessons and practice almost every day. he keeps getting better and better with every lesson. Kevin is a very good teacher— patient, courteous and very encouraging. Would be good for a student of any age.

He’s also very easy to work with in scheduling lessons, easy communication and follow through. Highly recommend.

"Comprehensive, Fun, and Professional

My younger brother and I both have taken lessons through Bill for quite some time now.

Bill has been fantastic, and can accomodate to players of all levels. I've been playing for years, and Bill is able to provide practice materials relevant to my musical interests, appropriately scaling up the difficulty of what we're working on. Ranging from famous straight-ahead jazz solos, to tricky classical etudes, I'm happy to know my overall musical technique, repertoire, and general skill will continue to grow at the pace right for me.

My younger brother is taking some more beginner clarinet lessons, and couldn't agree more. He always looks forward to lesson day, seeing what new notes and scales he'll get to play through!"
