I've been playing saxophone for 15 years, and I've picked up some cool tricks along the way! Saxophone lessons are custom tailored to the student's individual skill level.

Beginners learn basic technique and a foundation of good habits to build on!

Intermediate players challenge themselves with more difficult pieces, requiring use of more refined techniques.

Advanced players prepare and perform advanced pieces, and work on the most advanced techniques.

When I asked my son how his lesson went he said “I struck gold”. Imraan is amazing!
Sal
An excellent teacher. He keeps my son Sal interested and engaged with every lesson. Sal gets to choose some of the music he works on, and Imraan makes it into a lesson. Sal has been doing much better in band class, I recommend him!

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.

Lisa has been great at explaining some aspects of Jazz theory and improvisation that I have missed or only glossed over in the past. She has given me worksheets and examples that are nicely presented for further study. I recommend her for woodwinds and theory studies! A great teacher and a teachers teacher actually!

"Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that."

"Mary and I started working together after I co-founded a 60s soul/R&B/ska/reggae-beat band in which I sang vocals and was asked to play alto sax by the bandleader. I hadn't played sax in years (clarinet is my primary instrument), and among other things, I needed to start learning how to improvise - challenging for a symphonic band player whose head was always in sheet music. Mary's approach and teaching methods worked well for me; she's great at getting to know you as a player and your goals, and once she did that for me, she was immediately able to formulate a course of action. In the six months we were together, my tone, pitch, and playing improved, and my confidence grew. I heartily recommend Mary; no matter your instrument, she will get right down to business, keep you moving, and inject some fun into the whole process. A great player and entertainer, Mary has been a strong role model for me. I am grateful for everything I've learned from her, and I look forward to working with her again."
