I have had such a great experience taking clarinet lessons from Elia. She is very good at motivating me to practice in a non-degrading way, and she is always so supportive of my progress and struggles. I find that her explanations are very helpful and easy to understand, which I think is important for any teacher. I feel like I've improved a lot in the short time that I have been working with her, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great teacher!

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophonist, Composer, Educator.
21 years of practice, 10 years of teaching, 1 MASTER of Pedagogy, 2 BACHELORS in Classical and Jazz Performance (New School, NY).

My motto is efficient work for maximum pleasure. The idea is to build up a strong foundation of basic technique of the instrument (body, sound, air, time) in order to quickly come to play along your music idols.

With more than 20 years of practice and more than a decade of experience teaching, I've seen and gone through all kinds of mistakes myself which allows me to really know the correct and sane way to play saxophone, effortlessly and beautifully. Moreover, I have played all kinds of music through the years going from Bach to John Cage, from pop to classical to jazz, afro-cuban, brazilian, etc. Therefore, I'll be able to adapt my teaching specifically to your goals and to enlarge your scope of knowledge.

Caution : risks of addiction, immense satisfaction and personal development.

My adult daughter Kate was given saxophone lessons for Christmas and had her first lesson this week. Joshua was prompt, professional and she enjoyed herself immensely. She was nervous about not knowing how to read music but Joshua put her at ease immediately. We had to reschedule quite a few times due to Covid being in the house and he was very accommodating. I recommend him highly.

Joshua is always ready for us and had been very patient with my last minute changes in our schedule! Ryley, 8, is improving in chess. Joshua is friendly with Ryley. He can be a little dry - My some is very outgoing and talkative and enjoys his weekly lessons!
