I will teach you the fundamental basics as well as some tricks I learned from various artists I've played with. We will be using the Jamey Abersold books, Bob Mintzer books, and some of the tunes in the fake books. Also we will work on scales. I will also teach you how to write and compose your own music using my background music I send you.

About Frixos

Frixos states that his love for music probably started before he was born. “I’m pretty sure the Motown sounds my mother loved to listen and move to permeated to me through her.” Add to that his exposure to different ethnic sounds like Greek (his origins) folklore and contemporary music, Portug

I have been very pleased with the piano instruction Frixos has provided to my grand-daughter. He is very encouraging and tries to make the piano lessons interesting.
Frixos has been very understanding when problems arise and lessons need to be changed.😊 If you are looking for a reputable instructor, let me suggest Frixos.
Paula
We love Frixos! He is a wonderful teacher and person. We were unsure how online classes would go, but it’s been great. Frixos has done an excellent job of teaching our granddaughter. He makes it easy for her to learn, yet still challenges her.

I'm a professional saxophonist/ composer trained both in performance and pedagogy with 5 years experience teaching

I owe everything to teachers that inspired me when I was young. There is nothing like the feeling of doing the same for someone else! I love to pass on what I know, and to learn from my student's unique viewpoints and experiences.

Matt Burkett is a great music instructor. My son has been his student for about 2 years already . Matt helped my son improve his sound, his low notes, and sight reading. But most importantly he motivates my son to practice more and have fun playing his saxophone.
Highly recommend.
Chad
I've been playing the saxophone for 10 years, and I have never sounded as good or felt as confident since taking lessons with Matt. Matt plans lessons around achieving my goals as a musician, specifically improving my improvisation. Matt explains ideas I have struggled to comprehend in a way that makes me feel like I could have discovered these musical ideas myself. We work on everything from fundamentals, sound, technique, and theory, and Matt provides fun exercises that allow me to put ideas into practice. Contemplating concepts like voice leading, chord progressions, and substitutions have given me a plethora of material to keep me busy, and makes me excited to pick up the saxophone and continue working on my musical journey. I highly recommend lessons with Matt for any level player.

Private Saxophone Teacher

When asked “why do I teach music,” the answer stems from two main reasons: (1) I want to prompt a lifelong love for music in the lives of students, and (2) I am self-motivated to learn more from the vastness of musical experiences. Music has the ability to reach a wide variety of people from different cultures, ideologies, religion, and nationalities. It is a uniquely human experience that can’t be limited to a single person or group and, personally, there is nothing that comes close to the extent of music’s reach. It is an essential part of humanity.

As for instruments, I offer lessons in Alto Saxophone only.
