Had our first lesson with Scott. He was great with my 7 year old. We look forward to future lessons with him!

Very personable and eager to share his love of music. He’s not looking to teach you “his way” but meeting you where you’re at and helping you get to where you want to go, musically.

He was my band teacher when I was in grade school. I’m now going into my freshman year of college and I still remember him! He was so engaging, kind, energetic, and really cared about each individual student. I always looked forward to band in the morning and during the school day. He was definitely meant to be an instructor! :)

I am 5 lessons in to a 10 lesson package and Kim has been excellent. She adjusts her style nicely to the student and has put me on track each week to be better. Great instructor!

My first lesson with Dr. Kim was great, I was very rusty but she helped me dust off with some exercises and was very friendly and helpful with the parts I was struggling with. She also helped to provide resources for me to progress more on my own time. I'm looking forward to seeing progress with her over the coming months

"Frixos is a great instructor and a musician. It took me a while to find him. I think I've listen to every instuctor's video on this site before I made my choice. What made me chose him, as my teacher, was his passionate and creative style of playing. I believe a sax sound without emotion is a waste of this instrument. Unfortunately, very many musicians have a great technique but their music doesn't have an emotional/passionate story behind it. Well, Frixos had that and it helped me make my decision. As an instructor, he goes an extra mile to make sure I have all the support I need and beyond. He is thorough, responsible, and so much fun to work with!!! What he charges for the quality of service he provides is a "joke". So my recommendation to those who look for a teacher: take this great opportunity, let HIM teach you, and you won't regret!!! :)
P.S. I have no doubts that for as long as he is my instructor, I WILL learn how to play and be very good at it!

"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."

He’s very analytical and gives you the detailed context of why what you’re learning is important and how it fits into the context of playing in a band, different styles etc. He will flex lessons based on what you need to know but also what you’re interested in. Most importantly he’s fun and just an all around great guy. He’s the man, what else can I say."
