Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been playing the saxophone since 1998. My teaching experience in itself equals to some 10 years.

Through this time period, I have been working with Beginner to Advanced-level students of any ages. We have been practicing in my professional studio, at my trainees’ premises or via Skype.

To any student of mine I offer a tried-and-true combination of techniques that have eventually made up my state-of-the-art teaching methodic.
It contains, but is not limited to, the following:

- developing beginner musicians’ skill;
- establish the basis of musical theory including learning musical notation and reading scores;
- gaining extensive practice through performing popular classic to hit tunes;
- giving rise to intermediate-level saxophonists’;
- getting to know how to play in ensemble;
- learning how to improvise in a variety of genres.
- polishing advanced sax players’ mastery.

And, no doubt, helping prepare for an upcoming concert or competition is an option, too,

I’ve been slowly moving toward playing sax for over a year. So, when I was finally ready, I got puzzled where to find an experienced teacher so as not to pay through my nose. After about a week on the Internet, I found Nick York. After watching some of his videos online, I called him and we started training. Now I can say he stands out of other performers in terms of quality-to-price ratio. Thanks, Nick

I wanted to learn how to play the sax – and here it is, given to me as a present. I started to look for a teacher and was put on to him. I reckon he is a good teacher. He clearly breaks down information, has a creative approach to studies, always puts something new on offer, and takes his students’ wishes on board. Undoubtedly, Nick is a fair musician notwithstanding his teaching spirit. If any acquaintance of mine sets their sights on playing the saxophone, I will certainly recommend him to them.
Abbie
Nick is an exceptional musician and teacher. My son plays tenor saxophone and with Nick’s help jazz and classical pieces are taught in a fun and meaningful way. He is very patient and is great at giving little tricks and hints. He explains everything thoroughly from scales, technique, etc., His feedback at each lesson is detailed and on point. My son enjoys and looks forward to his lessons with Nick. I highly recommend!!!!

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

Music lessons from Jameson Burton don't simply teach you an instrument. You learn music. There is no other instructor that I hold in such high regards in terms of teaching the whole student. If you want to learn to be a musician and go beyond simply learning to play an instrument, then study under Jameson Burton.
