I have over 18 years of experience playing and loving music and have 4 years of experience gigging professionally in the Reno/Tahoe area. In that time I have performed with many great musicians and groups, including the Reno Jazz Orchestra and Daniel Rosenboom (whose work you will have heard if you've seen the recent Star Wars trilogy or have listened to the LA Philharmonic). I have a unique teaching style which caters to the need of each student while drawing on many sources of inspiration and information. I look forward to working and sharing this journey with you!

I have been training on the saxophone for upwards of eleven years! I have been giving lessons since 2015, and I am qualified to teach beginners to early-intermediate 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!

Great teacher and skillful. Great tips for today's lessons.

Thank you
Javier
Our first lesson was great. Ashley quickly got where I was and what I needed and we were off to a great start. She gave me tips on how to seat and breathe correctly, how to place my mouth and fingers on the keys to get a better sound, and we started practicing a few notes. Within a couple of days she sent me detailed notes on what we had gone through in the first lesson and gave me some exercises for practicing. Great experience all around for a beginner like me and I look forward to keep learning from her!

"My son is currently taking online lessons with Lucas and we're both quite happy with the experience so far. My son has been playing tenor for 4 years (currently 10th grade- in concert, jazz and marching bands at school) and had only ever taken live lessons before, but we're finding that online works out well. No extra travel time/hassle, which is great since he doesn't drive yet- just log online from our basement. Lucas had good availability and has been open to reschedule as necessary. Lucas has helped him with pieces for honor band auditions so far with specific feedback and even I can hear the difference in my son's playing."

She takes the time to understand where the student is and what is best to focus on. She comes prepared and is enthusiastic. She is especially good teaching children. I have seen her in action teaching beginner piano, beginner clarinet, and beginner/intermediate sax."
