Did you get your first saxophone and don't know where to start? Have you been playing for some time and want to audition for a music school? Do you just want to relax and play songs for your friends and family? You've come to the right place!
Our lessons will be tailored to your specific needs. We will focus on proper breath support, body posture, embochure and sound. We will also be looking at a repertoire suitable to your level and interests, and we might do some jazz improvisation if you want to learn that too. Just give it a try!

Keith Daniels is an exceptional educator, arranger, and composer. During our shared time at the University of North Texas (UNT), I had the pleasure of not only being a student of his but also playing some of his awesome originals and arrangements.

Keith uses a structured approach that gave me a very solid foundation as a composer/arranger. He starts from the basics of harmony/instrumentation and progresses all the way to advanced orchestration and intricate harmony writing. His music notation software of choice is Sibelius, but I used Musescore when studying from him and I was able to learn everything he taught just fine.

One thing I like about him is that he can work at your pace. When I was studying with him, I was in a class with three other students. We were all at different skill levels, but he was able to help all of us progress at our own rate, giving us specific individual feedback depending on our skill. On top of that, he is bilingual in both Spanish and English.

I highly recommend Keith to anyone trying to improve their Jazz composition and arranging! He will seriously help you out big time just like he did for me.

He is a great teacher! I enjoy the lessons with him a lot because he is always passionate and answers every question I ask with easy explanations and examples. He is super knowledgeable and friendly. His musical knowledge and suggestions always surprise me.
Edgardo B.
I had Keith Daniels as an Arranging teacher for a year. He is passionate about teaching, treats his students in a pretty respectful way, and always aware of the student's progress. Keith besides being an impressive musician is such a great human being, honest, patient, pretty open to new ideas, always on the vanguard of his topics, and a great listener who is always there to give you a hand in case you need it. I definitely recommend him, I've been growing with each session and changing my perspective of music in a positive way since I know him.

Private Saxophone Teacher

I have over 5 years of experience playing the saxophone and play the soprano, alto and tenor. I have performed as a soloist, in an wind ensemble setting and with jazz ensembles. I hold a Licentiate (LTCL) Diploma (2009) and a Grade 8 Certificate on Flute (2008) from Trinity College London and apply the same learning principles and technique to the saxophone.

I focus on the fundamentals (tone, technique and timing) using my own personalized approach to methods such as long tones, scales/ arpeggios and technical studies. I also allow students to be creative and express themselves through the art of music.

Jeremy sings and plays the flute in our church choir. He has proved himself to be the ultimate musician. Always amazed by his great skill and talent in enhancing our sound. He would certainly have much to offer the up and coming flutist.
Jann-Marie
I was one of Jeremy's first students. My parents were forcing me to pick up music as a hobby and i was very hesitant because it seemed tedious to me. My mom then heard about Jeremy from her friend and asked if he was willing to teach me. He was very patient as i admit i was not the best student, but he stuck with me and now i am taking auditions to play for an orchestra as a principal flute player. I will always be grateful to him for getting me to love and enjoy music as i was against it in the beginning, I would recommend that everyone make him your teacher, he really is awesome! Love ya teach!
Giselle
As a teacher myself, I find Jeremy-Paul's tutoring service is to recommended as he is very patient and understands the student's capability. As a new learner, he has really given me an excellent start. He makes his lessons interesting and demands a high level of expectations. He is very passionate about his craft and is very enthusiac about engaging his students.

Private Saxophone Teacher

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.

Sam
Alex is an incredibly talented player with an equal talent for teaching. I have played for more than decade and had leading instructors in school and Alex has completely taken my playing to another level. Best yet, he makes lessons super fun. He's kind, considerate, encouraging and reassuring. I cannot recommend him enough for anyone looking to begin to play, expand their play, or just keep in shape and have fun. He's the best.

Online Saxophone Teacher

While my degrees are in clarinet, I am also an accomplished saxophonist who has performed in ensembles throughout Colorado and Western Massachusetts, including jazz ensembles, musicals, and a professional saxophone quartet with performances at a regional North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA) Conference. I have experience ranging from helping students just learning their instrument all the way to students looking at All State or college auditions. My goal is to tailor lessons to meet each student's individual needs and interests, while still reinforcing good technique. Lessons will usually consist of doing a mix of different things such as: long tones, scales, etudes to improve technique and musicality, solos, duets, and Disney or jazz/pop tunes.

"My son is currently taking online lessons with Lucas and we're both quite happy with the experience so far. My son has been playing tenor for 4 years (currently 10th grade- in concert, jazz and marching bands at school) and had only ever taken live lessons before, but we're finding that online works out well. No extra travel time/hassle, which is great since he doesn't drive yet- just log online from our basement. Lucas had good availability and has been open to reschedule as necessary. Lucas has helped him with pieces for honor band auditions so far with specific feedback and even I can hear the difference in my son's playing."

"Being new to the online lesson format, I was skeptical at first, and have waited about 5 lessons to write this review. I am really glad we (randomly) picked Lucas to help my 6th grade son get started with saxophone. I'm so impressed with Lucas' ability to gauge through at at times imperfect internet connection what feedback to give my son. Lucas is excellent at giving instruction in understandable, and usable bites of information. The lessons are well paced and I can hear my son improve over the course of every lesson. The convenience of the online lesson cannot be overstated- we live in a rural area where finding an teacher and getting to a lesson was challenging to fit into our schedules, so it is amazing to have such great instruction on a schedule that fits in with our life. I would definitely recommend Lucas specifically, and the takelessons format to anyone looking for saxophone lessons."

"Awesome Sax Teacher

Bill is a great teacher. Teaching an adult to learn an instrument for the first time is not an easy task. Bill has tons of patience even when I don't find the time in my busy schedule to practice. He mixes class time with both practice and theory, and it is always interesting and challenging. He isa super cool guy who invites me to go watch him play. I haven't had a chance yet but am looking forward to seeing him rock out. I have already recommended him to a few friends of mine."
