I expected Percussion lessons where going to be on a complete drum set however NO Drums supposedly the snare was being repaired. Not even a drum pad was available but a book was used and an African drum. I think her forte is piano lessons. .Will be calling for a refund. Waste of time and gas!!!!

Susan was very nice and also very easy to understand. She was funny and incorporated jokes within the lesson and also shared some of her own experiences with the piano with me. Overall, it was a very good lesson and i cannot wait for the next one.

Professional saxophonist, trained at the nations top music schools, I teach students of all levels and ages, whether just beginning or an experienced player. I have a great amount of experience in both classical and jazz and have been playing for about 17 years myself.

In addition to helping students establish solid fundamentals, I can help you reach your goals, whether that be through working on classical solo repertoire, jazz and improvisation, band music, preparing for a competition or audition, and more. I try to make lessons fun and enjoyable for the student.

If you don't live near me, online lessons are a great alternative to in person lessons. I have had success teaching many students of various abilities and ages throughout the country and abroad online!

Philadelphia, PA

View Full Profile

The saxophone is my main instrument. Having played the sax for about 11 years, I specialize in the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone. I can provide lessons in classical and/or jazz saxophone, focusing on technique, standard repertoire and improvisation.

About Maria
At a young age, I found my passion through playing and listening to jazz and classical music and experiencing the interpersonal connections music creates. From performing to teaching, I love to share my passion for music with those around me.

Since graduating from Temple University with a B.M. in Music Education and Jazz Studies, I have played with musical groups in Europe and recently became a K-8 general music teacher in Philadelphia. Playing and teaching around the world and at home has given me great insight into how students need to be taught: with relevancy to their own lives while maintaining artistry and integrity.

My teaching experience ranges from private lessons and jazz workshops to summer music camps and K-12 music classes. I love teaching and will probably never stop!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe it is impor
tant to solidify the foundations of music, so that the student can grow into a knowledgeable, expressive musician. My lessons are taught with a personal and energetic approach leaving the student excited and eager to further explore music. I always make sure that the student is having fun!

Learning an instrument is all about personal growth as a musician. I will help my students become better musicians week by week as long as they are willing to practice and come prepared for the lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will provide a metronome, tuner, music stand and some music books/repertoire. Student may need to provide their own lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical techniques, improvisation, composition and songwriting.

****Cancellation Policy:
Out of common courtesy, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel and/or reschedule a lesson, and you will not be charged. NOTE: You will be charged for the lesson if you cancel less than 24 hours before the scheduled lesson. No notification of cancellation will result in being charged for the lesson as well. Bottom line, please communicate to me through call/text/e-mail in ADVANCE if you need to cancel a lesson in order not to be charged for the lesson. *********************************

Cancelled Lessons = You have contacted me in advance and you will not be charge. This lesson will be rescheduled.

Missed Lessons = You have NOT contacted me in advance and you will be charge. ** If you have to miss a lesson, we will reschedule a make-up time for that lesson, free of charge.

Maria is my first sax teacher and i loveeeed her. She is extremely patient, and knows how to teach (which is so important). She also inspires me for jazz solo pieces. I remember one time she just asked me to improvise and great music was "forced" out of my horn.

She is a great teacher and I would def have kept taking lessons from her if not she moved out of town. I am really hoping that she will return and do lessons with me again.

Each lesson was informative, fun, and most importantly- helped immensely with my playing. I happily recommend Maria to anyone hoping to expand their musical horizons.

Burbank, CA
View Full Profile

Experienced Sax Teacher of 30 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students progress quickly in the direction they want to go. I specialize in rock, blues and jazz, and I use my own method for teaching which takes 10% of the usual time of most methods. I have a video that demonstrates that.

About Rick
I’ve always loved teaching from a young age; finding new ways to break down complex ideas and techniques and making it fun and easy is something that gives me a lot of satisfaction. If you want to play your favorite songs on saxophone, I can save you years of frustration and slow progress.

At the bottom of this page, I have a YouTube video of 3 of my sax students' incredibly fast progress. None of them had ever played saxophone, You can do that too! It’s easy and fun. No boring scales, exercises and dumb tunes. Just a simple, easy way to becoming a great sounding sax player in 1/10th the time. This method has worked for over 1000 students and works 100% of the time if you commit to practice.

I guarantee if you commit to practicing 30 minutes 5 days a week for 4 months and you don't see the success in the video I will give you ALL
of your money back. I have 3 Grammy nominations but the proof of what i can do for you is in this video. Search this title on Youtube:

Mr. Caskin was my instructor for 3 years in a concert band setting. Under his guidance I constantly felt challenged, but also constantly improved. In those 3 years he made me a better musician than I ever thought I was capable of being. He is not only an efficient and effective teacher, but also a genuinely amazing person who is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Tim Caskin!

I was very lucky to have been taught by Mr. Caskin for my entire high school career. I was in his high school band class during his first four years on the job and had the pleasure to watch him grow as both a musician and a teacher. Mr. Caskin's innate musical talent is undeniable---his passion for music and positivity resonates throughout every session.

During my senior year, I had an independent study with Mr. Caskin. He helped me grow, not only as a percussionist, but also as a piano player as well as a songwriter. As a student who has always had the passion of pursuing music as a career from a young age, Mr. Caskin went above and beyond what can be expected from a high school band teacher to not only mentor me, but he also guided me in the right direction. In fact, Mr. Caskin was one of the reasons I pursued music into my secondary education, as he was always very supportive of the idea, and helped me through the process.

Mr. Caskin is an incredible teacher and mentor--anybody would be lucky to learn from him, as he is certain to bring the best out in any student he instructs!!!

Glassboro, NJ

With over 5 years of professional teaching experience, and 10 years of professional performance experience, I am well equipped to give saxophone lessons to students of all skill levels! I tailor my students' lessons to their specific needs and interests, while ensuring development of proper embouchure and technique. I am able to teach classical saxophone, jazz, rock, blues, and other genres, as well as music composition.

About Brandon
Composer and saxophonist Brandon has emerged in the music scene as a pioneering jazz and classical musician. His unique style of jazz composition and publications in the field of quarter tone music set him apart from the crowd.

Brandon is well-known for his advancements in the field of quarter tone music. His book, Quarter Tone Technique for Saxophone, is the first of its kind. This book explorers the possibilities of this music and its application on saxophone farther than anyone else in the past has. His unique compositions use this extended technique to create new sound atmospheres which were previously unexplored.

Brandon, along with Evan Smith, co-leads Ghost House, a six-member modern jazz group known for its original compositions. His compositions for this group explore his own modern composition ideas, while remaining true
to the rich tradition of jazz music.

Brandon is a member of The Dirty Bohemians. This is a funk/hard rock group led by Zach Birnbaum. This group is well-known in New Jersey as a tight group with high-calibre original compositions.

Brandon is also a member of The Third Arrangement, a fusion/rock group led by Nate MacAdams. This group performs originals and well-known rock/fusion songs.

Brandon performs in a variety of venues, including Chris’s Jazz Cafe, the Washington Banquet and Catering, Sandi Pointe Coastal Bistro, Shanghai Jazz, and the Tuckahoe Inn, as well as Rowan University, NJMEA Convention, and the University of Maryland. He is based in South Jersey, where he primarily performs, but he also occasionally travels out-of-state.

Brandon began studying saxophone as a teenager, both as a classical and as a jazz musician. He attended Rowan University for a performance degree in Jazz Studies, where he also studied classical saxophone technique, as well as music composition, where he studied with Timothy Powell, Denis DiBlasio, Carl Cox, and Roberto Pace. During the early years of his career, he performed regularly in his home state of New Jersey.

In 2014, Brandon received the Bill Walters NJJS Jazz Scholarship through the New Jersey Jazz Society, where he was invited to perform at the Shanghai Jazz restaurant with a group from the William Paterson University. He also performed at the 2014 NJMEA Convention with the New Jersey Intercollegiate Jazz Band. In 2016, Brandon was inducted into the Pi Kappa Lambda honors society.

I have known Brandon since 2012. We entered Rowan together to major in music. Brandon has always been the "go-to" saxophonist at the music department. He is widely knowledgeable not only in music but also in several academic aspects. Definitely a fun person to work with, and to talk to. I am completely sure that if you take lessons with Brandon, you will not only grow as a musician but also as a person.
Without having finished at Rowan, Brandon has already written and published a book. This speaks not only of his self-motivation, but also about the seriousness with which he takes his career as a musician. Students who chose to study with him will surely be influenced by all of his positive aspects.
Definitely recommended!

I have worked with Brandon since 2014 in several diifrrent music settings, and have taken a several lessons with him on saxophone (I'm a keyboard player). He is a consumate professional to play with and learn from.

When teaching, he is very good at explaining what you need to change, and how to do it in an easy to understand way. He is also very nice and encouraging, and inspired me to do better in my playing. He is punctual and will work with you to make things work for all involved, and has a fair rate for lessons.

I wholly reccomend Brandon as a teacher.
