I've been teaching saxophone for 20 years and my students have gone on to the State level Band Auditions and won multiple times. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a decent sound, play scales, arpeggios and simple tunes, and as time goes on you'll be able to play popular tunes solo and with accompaniment of piano or band. I specialize in classical, jazz and klezmer style, typically use best published books, and have the renovated, quiet and spacious studio, music stands, audio equipment. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

· Clarinet · In studio
Our 12-year old son has been learning clarinet from Mr. Dimitry for about a year now and we highly recommend him to prospective students for his deep music knowledge, rich clarinet performance experience and above all, just being a great clarinet teacher.

In a year's time with Mr. Dimitry, our son's progress has been very impressive. After our son started lessons with Mr. Dimitry, it quickly became apparent that Mr. Dimitry is a very experienced teacher for young musicians. He engages our son effectively to keep him interested in music and clarinet while at the same time sets high expectations for him. Our son always looks forward to clarinet lessons and also is motivated to practice pieces at home.

Mr. Dimitry not only teaches sound clarinet skills, but also emphasizes the importance of playing music the right way, that is to tell stories and express feelings through music rather than to play music like a technician. Although it is difficult for a young musician to fully appreciate this concept, it does go a long way in preparing him to become a really good musician in the long run.

Mr. Dimitry is very polite, pleasant and professional. We recommend him without any reservation.

My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction.

Incredibly amiable, professional, and talented as a teacher.

As a senior in high school now graduating and transferring into college, I started my lessons with Dimitry in December last year and had to end this summer at the end of the music school's program. Even though my time learning the saxophone was short, Dimitry used my past musical experience to help guide me through the instrument. His lessons did not feel long in any sense of the word, and in fact some two-hour lessons I took to make up missed weeks blew by, as I was constantly engaged by his teachings. During my studies with him I found myself in the presence of a true musician, and this was only further driven home when I saw him play in the Hanover Wind Symphony at the Morristown Community Theater with Stanley Drucker. I would highly recommend Dimitry as an instructor for a student at any level.

The saxophone family is full of potential for a wide array of colors and textures and can be played in a variety of styles: classical, jazz, funk, Afrobeat, rock, and more. I've played saxophone for 15 years, and I teach my students through exercises catered to their musical passions. In addition to the basic technical elements of playing, I focus on listening across the musical spectrum. I encourage the use of long tones and air support to improve tone, flexibility, and all repertoire.

From beginners to advanced students looking to ace their college auditions, I can prepare you to be the best saxophonist you can be. I have a number of all state saxophonists under my belt and have consistently coached students to earn superiors at state music festivals.

About Stephen
I am a classically trained saxophonist, bass vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. I have experience arranging music of all styles for bands, orchestra, percussion ensembles, and a cappella groups. I was the saxophonist for The High Lifes, a ska-punk band out of Orlando, FL; played tenor and baritone saxophone in my university's wind ensemble, saxophone quartet, jazz band, and orchestra; have founded and led four a cappella groups at the collegiate and semi-professional levels; and am a bass section leader in the New York City Bar Choir. I have taught public school band, chorus, orchestra, piano, and music technology classes and was an elementary school music teacher in Orlando, FL before moving to New York in 2012.

My private saxophone students have gone on to study at the college level, have been members of the Florida All-State band, a
nd earned Superior ratings at state music festivals. I have also taught private flute, clarinet, and bassoon lessons.

In addition to music performance classes, I have experiencing teaching music theory and arranging. If you would like to learn about the magic behind music, I'm your guy!

If you're interested in ensemble lessons, we can negotiate group package discounts. I've found that music is best when shared and learning to perform quality musical literature with other, like-minded musicians is one of the most rewarding experiences in life.

Before making your purchase, you'll want to do some research. But where do you start? With so many brands out there, how do you know which ones are worth the money?
