My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are children and adolescents who are looking to pursue music when they go to college or auditioning for state and regional band programs. Many of my students are very busy adults who are either looking to pick up an instrument for the first time as an ...

Matt is the best instructor ever
He teaches with so much understanding and willingness to teach well. I feel so blessed having him as my tutor because I understand faster with the way he teaches.
Even if I am finding it hard to understand some things, he breaks it down and makes it so easy to understand.
I would highly recommend him to anyone 100%
Please do not hesitate to pick him as your tutor, you won’t regret it at all.

Granville is an excellent instructor, he took the time to access my skill level and is guiding me towards my goal to play the piano. I look forward to my lesson every week and if I have a question about ANYTHING I text him and he replies quickly. Glad I found him!!

So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been teaching saxophone for 2 years and specialize in beginner to intermediate training. I am a commercial funk Saxophonist that plays in an actual e funk group called Joe Keyes and The Late Bloomer Band. I graduated from Towson University with a degree in jazz/comercial performance on the saxophone, and am currently enrolled in Howard University's jazz studies program. I believe that each student learns differently and different approaches should be explored when learning an new instrument. I make it a priority to learn my students musical interests and goals so that I may help them achieve success in their music journey. I like to make things informative and interesting and I hope to develop and cultivate my students creativity as well.

"Top notch teacher.

Norman is an excellent teacher. I have been with him for just over a month now and I have came leaps and bounds. It's my first instrument that I have tried to learned and I can read music and play duets with him. He's friendly and very knowledgeable of the material also. I would say that in a couple months I will be dazzling my friends and family. So if your thinking about an instructor then Norman would be a great investment."

Bill is easy to work with and accommodating. My son thinks that he is cool. I would like Bill to be a little harder on my son. I feel son should be along further; practice more. But Bill encourages him, which is good, but the son thinks he doesn't have to practice much."

"Leslie has been amazing with our 13 year old who is learning saxophone as a beginner. She has taken the time to get to know our daughter and is a great listener. She teaches while involving Emma in the lesson plan. She is collaborative but has clear expectations for growth; it has been the instructional style our daughter needed. Leslie has also been very flexible with last minute schedule changes and is very responsive. We were nervous to use this platform as a new student, but it has been more effective than in-person instruction. Highly recommend Leslie!"

"Max is a fantastic teacher! He taught my 12-year old son James how to play saxophone from the very beginning. James had never played the sax before and after his first lesson he could already play a song. Max is passionate and inspires and motivates his students, and his lessons are well planned out. Besides being a great teacher, he is also an amazing saxophone player! I now also have my younger daughter learn to play clarinet with Max, and she also loves her lessons."
