Jorge was a great teacher, he started me off learning clarinet. Very kind, postitve and knew all of his stuff. Would definitely recommend as a teacher.
Holly
Jorge tutored me for a few weeks in music theory and it greatly benefited me. He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on.

Do you want to play what is known as the coolest woodwind out there? Move aside, oboe!

During a Corinne saxophone lesson, you will learn how to create beautiful sounds first and foremost. If at first you sound like a goose, fear not! A little bit of time with me will go a long way.

Once you are producing some quality saxophone sounds, we will move on to learning notes, reading music, and accomplishing your goals!

Aside from perfecting saxophone technique, we will also work on musicality and listening skills! These skills are important in bringing music to life.

If you already know how to play the saxophone, I will continue your education in whatever direction you would like to go.

I look forward to working with you!

Amazing Player...Even Better Teacher.

From my first lesson with Bonnie, she opened me up to a new realm of musicianship and technique that I had never experienced before. She re-ignited a passion in my music that I was beginning to lose. I am forever grateful to her for this.

Bonnie is a hundred percent devoted to music, her playing and her teaching. One of the things I love most about her is that she seems to know everything about the flute, yet she is always striving to learn more. And if, every once in a while, there is something she doesn't know, she investigates. She finds an answer, contemplates it, and teaches me.

Bonnie is also a genuinely caring person who is entirely invested in her students. She often e-mails me after my lesson to tell me something that she had thought about relating to my lesson, proving that she is always thinking about ways to help me in my playing.

Bonnie continues to challenge me and encourage me in all my playing - she truly makes me feel that with enough practice and determination there is nothing I can't play. She even helped me attain a 100 on my all-state level piece this year. However, the score is less meaningful than the feeling I had after I performed that day. I knew that I was playing on a level I had never imagined - all due to Bonnie's inspiring me to always be better and her total confidence in me, not only as a flute player, but also as a musician.

Bonnie's musicianship and playing is unparalleled, her teaching style unique and engaging and, once you get to know her, she is quite the comedian. I am truly lucky to have her as my teacher.
Mary Ellen B.
An engaging and wonderful instructor

I have been extremely fortunate to have had Bonnie McAlvin teaching flute, piccolo and music theory to my older daughter for nine years and flute to my younger daughter for four. She is an enthusiastic and energetic teacher that inspires a great love of musicianship in her students. My older daughter is a first chair flutist in a wind ensemble and plays with a prestigious children's orchestra entirely due to the patient and thorough instruction she has received from Bonnie. It is a great blessing to have musically talented children but an even bigger blessing to have an instructor who can give them the skills and encouragement to achieve excellence. My older daughter is working towards attending a conservatory for college and the younger daughter fully expects to have music be part of her education going forward. This is entirely due to Bonnie's influence and guidance. We could not be more pleased. My girls love their lessons with Bonnie and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

"I’ve been a working musician and composer in Los Angeles for the last 20 years. I’ve also spent a good deal of that time teaching piano, so I feel like I have a pretty good handle on what makes a good music teacher. Still, when I had to find a sax teacher for my son, it wasn’t easy. I knew some really great players, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be good teachers. Luckily, I found Rick. In addition to being an amazing saxophone, flute and clarinet player, he’s an unbelievable teacher. In the first lesson, he did more for my son’s tone than months of lessons had with our previous teacher. He also has his own method of teaching jazz improvisation and it really is amazing. My son is improvising at a really high level and keeps getting better all the time. Rick really gets involved with my son’s progress and he truly gets excited when he excels. The truth is no one deserves a teacher like Rick-you can only hope to get really lucky to find a teacher this good."
