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!!!!

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone playing has been a part of my life from as early as remember. My father was a jazz saxophonist and this inadvertently led me toward a similar path. I have been playing professionally since the age of 18 and play gigs every week in the set coast area. I have studied with some of the best saxophone teachers on the planet at Berklee, and constantly draw on information they passed along to me when expressing my style of teaching. I think people automatically assume that if you play saxophone you must play jazz, but I feel that there are so many stylistic opportunities with this flexible instrument. i've managed to play on gigs of all genres with what I know and the approach I take to playing. In my lessons I like to focus on fundamentals but then on how such fundamentals can be applied to different playing situations. From the beginner to Immediate player I really try to focus on sound quality and production, finger technique, time, articulation, theory and building a ...

What a great experience I’ve had taking lessons from Cameron over the years. Not only is so kind hearted and organized but he knows his stuff and is an amazing player/teacher.

Jorge was a great teacher, he started me off learning clarinet. Very kind, postitve and knew all of his stuff. Would definitely recommend as a teacher.
Holly
Jorge tutored me for a few weeks in music theory and it greatly benefited me. He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on.

I really enjoy taking saxophone lessons with Ana. She is extremely knowledgeable in topics related to saxophone, jazz, and improvisation. Her lessons are very organized, intellectually stimulating, and she provides just the right amount of structure while allowing me the space to develop my own creative ideas. I highly recommend taking a lesson with her. You’ll thank me later!
Christine
I have played clarinet for 5 years now and am working on music for solo pieces and band class. Ana gives me lots of material to work on and I am feeling more confident about my playing!
Amanda D.
I'm a classically-trained flutist and have been taking Jazz improv and theory lessons with Ana for four months. I have learned so much from her - she has opened my eyes to jazz and made it fun and approachable. The lessons have given me a deeper appreciation when listening to jazz, improved my listening skills, and made me a better player. I never thought I would be able to do improv, and after a few weeks of lessons it came very easily to me. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to learn jazz improv, regardless of what instrument they play!

"Welcoming personality makes learning fun

Mary has done a great job with my son. She made my son feel comfortable enough at his first lesson that he kicked me out! On his second lesson he managed to not only forget his sheet music, but his instrument too! Mary still managed to teach him things and by the time I got back with the Sax he was fully engaged in learning some things she wrote on paper. My son has enjoyed his lessons and I see him keeping more interest than with just his school lessons alone. He is DEFINITELY learning and having fun doing it."
