I have experience in teaching every level of student from beginning to advanced. I am a big believer in teaching the fundamentals. I spend much time working on tone and technique with my students as this leads to much success when it comes to specializing in both classical and jazz playing. I give students much freedom as to what they want to work on as this allows students to be excited about taking lessons. After all, music is supposed to be fun!

Online Saxophone Teacher

I'm a saxophone teacher and I also teach flute, clarinet, and piano as well as jazz improvisation and other instruments such as bass and drums from time to time. Saxophone is my primary instrument and I fell in love with playing it at an early age.

I've been playing for about 25 years now! I'm well versed in any style you can imagine including jazz, classical, funk, blues, or anything else you can think of! I can also teach you how to improvise and play solos over chord changes or quickly come up with parts on the fly if you're playing in a band or are interested in writing. If you're interested in just getting the basics down, I can help with that too. I remember what it was like getting started in school band and some methods that you can use to get comfortable on the horn pretty quickly and just playing some music! I'd love to hear what kind of music you're into as well- it's more fun for everyone involved if we can incorporate some of that into the lessons too!

About Joshua

I have been playing music since I was a kid. I started out in church, then went on to play in school band and started gigging here and there. I just loved playing from the beginning and wanted to learn how to play improvised solos. There was just some magic in being able to make up what you play on

As an accomplished professional musician and teacher, I understand the musical journey. I have been teaching students ranging in ages from 7 to 91(!) for many years, from beginners to professionals. and tailor my lessons to each individual. I believe it is about the journey and enjoying the process. I include context in my teaching, giving a more holistic approach to art and music. I believe the study of music will enrich your life in many ways and that music can become a friend for life.

About Robert

After all these years of playing and thousands of gigs In many genres, I still remember why I started playing in the first place. The excitement and joy of playing and exploring music should last and I strive to impart that in lessons. Of course, you need to know how to work the machine and I teach

I'm in 8th Grade and have been taking saxophone lessons with Bob for a year. He is friendly, patient, helpful and makes the lessons fun! I enjoy taking lessons with him because he's not too pushy but still challenges me enough to help me improve my skills. I would highly recommend him as a teacher!
Laurel
Take lessons from Bob Campbell! Do it and you'll be rewarded with a fun, productive, and inspired musical experience that will enrich your life. Seriously. I've studied with Bob for several years and he is a creative and passionate teacher who can show you how to make the simplest exercises musical and interesting, while making more challenging pieces a pleasure to learn.

Bob is a talented, accomplished performer who shares his in-depth professional experience and broad knowledge of music history and culture to educate and motivate. During lessons, Bob has been known to relay stories from classical-era musicians’ lives, play passages from 1930s to current jazz musicians, and impart lessons from his own performance experiences. I'm so often amazed that he has yet another fascinating example or story to illuminate a topic and provide new understanding of a concept.

Bob is a learner-centric teacher who provides creative, deliberate plans and steps to move forward, but will change course if needed to enhance success. Since I started the saxophone later in life, he often mentions the “unique strengths of adult learners” and relates adult life-knowledge to learning musical concepts. Additionally, I have long struggled with confidence in music-making and Bob has come up with creative solutions to help me overcome my own “getting in the way” of music making while keeping me on task. Along the way he has been understanding, kind, and supremely patient while working through this challenge with me.

Bob brings a keen intellect, good sense of humor, and a relaxed and fun teaching style to his lessons. I feel fortunate to have an expert and steadfast guide who encourages me to explore and have fun with music while helping me gain knowledge and skills. Do yourself a favor and call Bob to guide you on your own musical journey.
Jon
I’ve been taking tenor sax lessons with Bob for over 5 years. When I started taking lessons with him, I couldn’t play at all, but I’ve made great progress and Bob has been instrumental (sorry!) in my improvement. In fact, I got good enough to play "Unforgettable" during the service at my daughter’s wedding and everyone both enjoyed it and thought it was quite meaningful. Bob is professional, motivating and friendly and I’ve truly enjoyed working with him. I would very highly recommend Bob to anyone of any age who is interested in lessons on a woodwind instrument.

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."

"I am a teacher in the LAUSD and I know a good teacher when I encounter one. Rick is unbelievable. After his first sax lesson with Rick, my son’s tone was so rich, full, and bright. He made more progress in that first lesson than he had after months with his previous teacher. Rick has developed a system to teach his students how to improvise. My son now is able to solo at such a high level. He plays in the Jazz Ensemble at his school and the band director now refers to him as a “Monster.” The best thing about Rick is that he gets excited when he sees the growth and progress in my son. He loves to see him succeed and that’s why he works so hard to find the most direct and effective way to bring out the best in his students. I know how challenging teaching can be. Rick is one of a kind and his students are very fortunate to have him!"
