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!

We had our first saxophone lesson with Benjamin today and it was excellent! He is clearly a master that can assess a student’s skill level and adapt the lesson to suit their needs. He is just what we needed :)

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone is my main instrument. I attended William Patterson University's illustrious Jazz Studies program.

I teach all basics, and I am capable of teaching both in the jazz and classical tradition. Beginners will work with a classic method book to develop technique, then we will move into the styles of music the student is interested in. All the while, we will be learning about the fundamentals of music theory and developing a strong background in ear training- to give meaning to all of the work we do on the horn.

David was very patient when I struggled with simple concepts and tailored the lesson to supplement areas that needed work. I always leave with a smile, excited to keep practicing.

David's experience definitely shows when he's teaching music, instead of doing things "by the book", David is able to adapt and cater to the way I learn, making things that have eluded my intelligible grasp my whole life easy to understand.

Music lessons from Jameson Burton don't simply teach you an instrument. You learn music. There is no other instructor that I hold in such high regards in terms of teaching the whole student. If you want to learn to be a musician and go beyond simply learning to play an instrument, then study under Jameson Burton.

No one can infuse you with the skills necessary to become proficient with any instrument. They can teach you basics and even advanced techniques, but to make them yours, you must implement what you have been taught and practice, practice, practice.
Loran's strength with and gift to me is that he is my coach. He is amazingly good at being my coach. Loran reassures me that what I have do so far is good, encourages me to be better, and motivates me to continue striving.
As a sixty-something who was basically starting over with respect to the piano, Loran is my guru.

"There's a difference between knowing how to play and knowing how to teach and Matt is fluent in both. I have given up on the Sax a couple times before due to lack of affordable and qualified teachers so I'm very glad I finally found a teacher who's very patient and kind like Matt 5 stars all the way!"

"I had weekly lessons with Dr. Wen from Fall 2018 - Spring 2019. He opened up my playing beyond the notes on the page and helped me understand musicality. We worked together on etudes and pieces that pushed my technique, and playing the difficult passages was never to be at the expense of phrasing and musicality. From how to physically hold and play the instrument to alternate fingerings and phrasing, Dr. Wen improved every facet of my playing. More than that, he left me with the tools to keep improving. He will do the same for you!"
