Brittney is an excellent teacher. She is so nice and she helped my daughter figure the parts that were difficult for her. My daughter’s last teacher made her really upset, but after Brittney’s lesson, my daughter was really happy. I definitely reoccurrence you take lessons with her.

Private Saxophone Teacher

I start with assessing the students' capabilities, after which I begin to develop the following areas: Development of their sound; Instrument Technique; Jazz Improvisation and Jazz Language; Theory and Jazz Harmony; Study and Development of Students' Own Repertoire. Depending on the level of the students and their needs, I push certain areas more or less. The key to becoming a successful student is to practice, to develop a good technique, but also to listen to a lot of music to develop the talent for music. Therefore I encourage my students to listen to a lot of records to understand the right sound.

About My Lesson Style ...I encourage the students to listen to the music, and above all, I encourage them to enjoy it, while teaching the discipline. The study will not be a burden if the student has fun while playing. One of my goals is that, at the end of the lesson, the students go home with the desire to play again and again. I also think that learning, and preparing oneself to ...

As a private instructor, I genuinely encourage efficient practice, solid technique and good tone quality, as well as an appreciation for music. I also incorporate the study of music theory and the study of music fundamentals in my lessons. I have experience teaching the genres of classical, jazz, modern, folk, and pop music and hope to extend the joy of learning music to my students as well as help them grow and gain confidence in order to bring on-going fulfillment to their musical experience.

"Excellent instructor, very relaxed atmosphere and provided a lot of good information. Especially liked that fact that he took the time to cover what was needed rather than strict adherence to the clock. Highly recommend his as a music instructor."

""Cool, amazing, fun, and I don't know what else" said my 9 year old son who has taken 4 weekly beginner lessons with Carl. "Carl will go at your own pace. He gives advice and will do a duet if you want him to with you. He is a great saxophone player."

We had to set up our home computer for web chat, but it seems to work very well and we can definitely hear my son's improvement week to week (he just started playing this fall). Carl is very patient and will send you music files and links that he thinks will help your student. Overall four thumbs up from the student and his (non-saxophone playing) parent."

"Ian was prompt, attentive and just a real pleasure to work with. I'm totally new to the instrument - and he was patient - started from the very beginning - and even gave me a song to practice at the end (which is how you stay interested). He clearly knows his stuff. How do I know? - Here's what happened - He taught me the first notes, and all was going well - he gave me praise - but when we got to "G" it was off. He worked with me on technique and said - "wait - something's off, may I see your instrument?" Handing it over - he worked the keys (I got it from craigslist) and ultimately ended up putting his neck on it. Played it - and although it sounded much better - was still off. He scratches head, then instinctively shook it a few times - and the cleaning cloth comes tumbling out of the bell! "Well - there's your problem!" We laughed and went right back into it. Two thumbs up and five stars for this guy."
