Elia was my clarinet teacher for a year in Montreal. I have to say, I miss her since she moved back to NYC.
She has vast musical experience and is an excellent teacher.
She's been really helping me shape my music and my musicality with technique work and working on pieces that I really enjoy.
She is very supportive, she doesn't make you feel bad about your mistake and really help you to correct them.

Elia is a wonderful and talented instructor and i can only highly recommend her.
Chialing P.
I have been studying with Elia for the past year. I had trouble with rhythm and she went out of her way to bring exercises to me. She also teaches me on how to have a good tone. She is patient and I highly recommend her!
Neil
This was my first clarinet lesson for ten years, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to accompany me. Elia was friendly, enthusiastic, and quick to figure out what I need and understand what I want to achieve. I look forward to having a lot of fun rediscovering the clarinet in our subsequent lessons.

Great experience with Lynn, also after having had sax lessons for over a decade now. She clearly loves to play and jam and has tons of experience teaching it.
Arthur F.
My first lesson with Lynn was wonderful. I was greeted at the door with a warm smile That made me feel at ease. I'm an absolute beginner and even my mistakes were fun.
Lynn; I love your personality and your teaching method. I got a lot out of that lesson.
And, by the time I'm 75 which is in about 5 months and with your guidance I'll be able to play a tune or two. I got a good teacher. Looking forward too lesson Number 2.
Dave P.
I've worked with Lynn for going on three years now and she has without a doubt been one of the most talented and most enjoyable people to make music with that I've ever encountered. Not only does she rock the sax better than most, she's extremely humble and approaches music with an openness and extremely positive energy. I give her my highest recommendation as a great teacher, and a great human being.

Online 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.

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, Portuguese

"When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him."

"Being new to the online lesson format, I was skeptical at first, and have waited about 5 lessons to write this review. I am really glad we (randomly) picked Lucas to help my 6th grade son get started with saxophone. I'm so impressed with Lucas' ability to gauge through at at times imperfect internet connection what feedback to give my son. Lucas is excellent at giving instruction in understandable, and usable bites of information. The lessons are well paced and I can hear my son improve over the course of every lesson. The convenience of the online lesson cannot be overstated- we live in a rural area where finding an teacher and getting to a lesson was challenging to fit into our schedules, so it is amazing to have such great instruction on a schedule that fits in with our life. I would definitely recommend Lucas specifically, and the takelessons format to anyone looking for saxophone lessons."

"I returned to saxophone after not playing for years, and at the recommendation of a local player took lessons with Mike. Mike's a great player, but more importantly, he's a great teacher. He's made a study of teaching wind instruments and can really help identify technical issues. Working with Mike on improvising and jazz phrasing and articulation has been really fun and productive for me, and has improved my musicianship in other areas (I'm mostly and upright bassist). I haven't had a sax lesson for a little while, but I recently got a clarinet and I'm back with Mike. The lessons are, as always, rewarding and enjoyable. Highly recommended."
