We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

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.

I'm a 52 year-old with no music background and today was my first virtual alto sax lesson with Randall. I must admit that I was very intimidated at first and didn't think that I would be able to get the most out of this virtual learning experience. However, Randall made me very comfortable and quickly got me relaxed as if he were right there with me in my living room. We began by him showing me the do's and don'ts of putting my horn together (especially the mouthpiece), fingering, and creating the sound I wanted. I was impressed because he taught me about 5 to 6 notes in this initial session. To be honest I didn't even think that I would've been able to get a note out but I did. Although I didn't want my first saxophone lesson to be virtual, I can confidently say that I will continue my sessions with Randall and highly recommend his services.

I have been teaching saxophone for 15+ years. I enjoy teaching people of all ages, both children and adults, of all levels. I believe in teaching a strong core of music fundamentals but also in finding what makes music special to each student. Lessons should be fun and engaging. I have several students audition into regional bands, and select school ensembles every year. But we also make sure to play some pop tunes and top 40.
