Chelsea was very patient and listened to my concerns. She had material ready for me to play and was very kind when she corrected me. She always found something I did right even when I made mistakes. Very good teacher!

Chelsea did a great job at our first lesson! She was patient and encouraging. She gave my daughter good suggestions on how she could improve and things to try in areas she was struggling. My daughter felt so much better after the lesson. We will continue to take lessons with Chelsea

We sent music to Chelsea in advance and she was able to help my son with the difficult parts of his music. The time was well spent and she explained things well. We look forward to our next lesson and working with her over the next month to help him catch up.

Private Saxophone Teacher

My approach to teaching is to use the student’s interests and passions to help their learning move forward quickly. We first talk about what excites the student. The student and I list long-term and short-term goals that are realistic and reachable. I then create a course of study that supports these goals. During lessons we review these goals and track progress. We create new objectives as students reach old ones.

Engaged, energized students progress quickly. Students who are having fun tend to practice more. I encourage students to include fun tasks in their regular practice time. We reinforce this by including fun musical exercises in lessons. They do call it playing an instrument, after all!

Students can study:
Performance Fundamentals, technique and repertoire, Classical to Post-BeBop Jazz
Contest Preparation, Solo and Ensemble, District and State Honors Bands, College Auditions
Contemporary Music Theory, from scale construction through complex harmonic concepts
Jazz ...

So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

"Ben has tremendous patience with his students which is a hallmark of an instructor of a high caliber. Best of all, Ben enjoys making his students grasp the concepts progressively and in as congenial a manner as possible.

I highly recommend Ben for all new and experienced students alike.

Ben has skill(s) in good measure coupled with his understanding of a student's comprehension level. When you sit and learn with Ben, you just wish that the class carries on without a break. His enthusiasm is so contagious!"

I received a great report about his music performance from school. Sergio is a wonderful music teacher, who is able to make the lesson full of energy and joy. I strongly recommend him for any student who wants to achieve great progress in Sax in no time."
