Saxophone
talented musician and inspiring teacher

Trevor has been my sax teacher for more than two years. He is both fun and inspiring. I am definitely a better musician because of my lessons with him.

Trevor makes me work hard but understands when I need the lesson to slow down. My favorite part of each lesson is when we get to play the music together.

Ableton · In studio
Mark is a self-taught Ableton guru. This makes him very aware of various difficulties the self-motivated newcomer may face. I had already played with Ableton on and off over the years prior to taking lessons with Mark; he is quick to recognize what I already know and focus on the gaps in my knowledge. He's also just a really nice guy who you will undoubtedly end up chatting about your favorite artists with after the lesson concludes. Give him a try if you're looking for flexibility in how you learn and when you are able to meet.
