Private Saxophone Teacher

I am a young saxophonist, just 18 years old. I play at a very high level, despite my age. I am currently in Hofstra University's Jazz Ensemble, studying with a jazz great, Dave Lalama. In highs school, I wasa given All-State recognition for classical and jazz music. I also won the most prestigious award at a jazz festival in Boston during my senior year of high school. I can give insight to new, modern jazz nuances that not many people would know. Also, I can teach the basics of jazz to anybody that is interested in learning how to play this wonderful style of music. Although jazz is my main area of interest, I am more than able to teach classical music as well. I have a very strong background in classical music. I am a versatile teacher, and I am ready to help any student that decides to work with me.

I am an internationally recognized saxophonist, composer, keyboardist, songwriter, lyricist, vocalist, bandleader, arranger, and producer with a passion for music education.

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years at levels from beginner to Graduate student/working professional (I am a substitute teacher for saxophone legend, prof. Antonio Hart, at Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College, NY). All levels and ages are welcome.

I have a specific teaching curriculum with an emphasis on the control of the saxophone fingering and breathing/sound producing techniques, which ensure visible improvements within weeks of lessons! I am definitely also open to the students' own wishes regarding their repertoire and musical interests.

The unique quality I bring to my student's teaching experience is that I am also a working musician - I have been performing, recording, touring, producing, and band-leading internationally for 15 years now in a wide variety of musical ...

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 ...

Online Saxophone Teacher

I specialize in Jazz Saxophone, but also am very fluent and familiar with the classical world as well. One huge plus that my saxophone students have is that I can accompany them on piano. This makes lessons in jazz improvisation much more effective. I focus on fundamental skills such as sight reading, technique, jazz and classical theory, improvisation and composition. I also make recordings for my students on request. I have worked with multiple wind ensembles and jazz bands in the past, and can help polish up ensemble music.

Suzie
Joey has been teaching piano to my 9 year old son for almost a year now. We are very happy with the relationship our son and Joey have, and with our son’s progress. My husband and I both studied music in college, and we’ve both been music teachers at various points in our careers. We know a solid teacher when we see one. Joey somehow manages to set high expectations for our son while remaining laid back and fun. He lets our son explore different types of music as our son’s interest changes. We find that flexibility refreshing and necessary to keep young kids interested. Out of all his activities, our son loves piano the most, and a lot of that has to do with the quality of teaching he receives from Joey. Speaking of flexibility, Joey has adapted his teaching seamlessly to teaching via zoom (his lessons were previously taught in our home), and even put together a lovely virtual recital for all the kids in his studio during the covid-19 social distancing situation. We heard about Joey from friends, and continue to recommend him to others.
Andrea
Joey is knowledgable and talented in his craft. My energetic five year old son looks forward to his lessons each week. Joey is an experienced teacher, his lesson structure and management skills keep my son on task and learning. He is patient and flexible. We highly recommend Joey as a music teacher. These lessons are an investment in our child’s future and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found Joey.
Katherine
Joey swiftly switch led to on-line lessons when school closed.
The lessons continues and we’re greatly received and appreciated.
Of course in person lessons are better, however, Joey manages to keep my son engaged and continue practice on both saxophone and piano.
Highly recommend!! Joey is highly professional, very knowledgeable and able to keep great rapport with students.

"Seth is a good dude. I came across his profile with Take Lessons a month ago, after browsing through other instructors in my area and other schools in my area. He's got the experience and knowledge, so I connected with him for an initial lesson. It was a quick one to get introductions out of the way and a good idea of goals/direction. From there we further honed our plans for my instruction in an hour lesson and are directing our sights on my upcoming auditions. Seth has shown me through simple explanations of theory that his teaching style is very approachable, and additionally, was able to show me good technical skills on working my way around the horn, which is especially useful for someone like me in my twenties who already has a few bad habits (haha). Like I said, he's a good dude, good sense of humor so I feel at ease practicing with him and his knowledge is insane! Not only for saxophone but in so many other areas of music! You'd be doing yourself a favor to take at least an hour lesson from him and see how you go."
