Kareem is superb. Under his tutelage I am certain I will advance quickly from my current skill set. I'm more convinced than ever that I can become a real musician. His assignments require the commitment that I am willing to invest. I hope I will live up to his expectations.

My granddaughter is 6 years old and this is her first professional piano teacher. Kareem is ensuring that she has the basics down before she continues. She enjoys the lessons, and is excited when lesson day comes.

Private Saxophone Teacher

Hi! I have a Bachelors in Music Education and have experience teaching many beginning students! I have 3 children and decided to give up regular teaching to be with them. I believe that tone production is the most important area of study. It doesn’t matter what you can play if it doesn’t sound good. I can’t wait to help more students love to “play” on their instruments!

About Kim

Hello! I started my love of music at a young age with my family playing and singing at family functions. That turned into a wanting to learn how to play the flute and I went up through high school with that instrument. After high school I branched out more into vocal performance. After that I j

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have 8 years of experience teaching students of all levels, and I would love to work with you! Every student learns differently, so I draw from all I have learned from my previous teachers and time at the Brubeck Institute and Berklee College of Music, as well as my experience as a professional musician, to help my students improve to their highest potential. My greatest joy in teaching comes from helping students like you overcome a musical challenge that they thought would be impossible! Our lessons will center around music you want to learn (whether it be jazz, classical, contemporary, etc), but will also give you a comprehensive musical foundation, and teach you how to teach yourself. I'd love to work with you!

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been teaching privately and in colleges/schools for over 15 years. For all levels, I will help you develop excellent technique on the saxophone and build a strong foundation in music theory. For advanced/intermediate students, I also teach jazz improvisation, if you’re interested! Please bring in the music and songs you want to work on. I believe lessons should be fun and interesting while you learn great stuff, too!

About Dan

Hi, I’m a professional tenor and soprano saxophonist. I graduated from William Paterson University with a Bachelors in Jazz Performance. I also have an MA in Jazz History and Research from Rutgers University. I enjoy helping students to develop improved technique, sight reading, and musicality.

I've been receiving instruction from Dan for almost a month, and I'm very impressed with my progression. Dan is a very patient, friendly and knowledgeable teacher who cares about my progress and success as a musician. I’ve seen improvement in my embouchure, increased my sight reading speed, and my intonation. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in improving their ability to play the saxophone.

Before I engaged Dan Faulk as a teacher, I knew of him as one of the preeminent voices on the tenor saxophone. I had seen him in performance several times and heard him on recordings. I reached out to him for lessons because I knew that he was a great player who could likely help me achieve my goal of becoming a musician able to improvise in the jazz idiom. What I did not know until my first encounter with him was how easy it would be to work with Dan. By that, I in no way mean to suggest that he is a pushover or that my lessons were not serious, rigorous or challenging. What I mean is that Dan is the rare instructor who has the ability to help you stay focused and positive while at the same time challenging you in a disciplined and nurturing way. With his guidance, I certainly became a better musician in every respect.

One of the most important things about my time with Dan is that fact that he used a pedagogical framework that clearly conveyed for me at the outset the work necessary for me to become an effective improvising musician. Dan is extremely knowledgeable about the inner workings and alternative underlying theories of jazz improvisation because he has played with and studied with many of the luminaries of jazz, and he knows how to structure and present this information. With his vast knowledge and desire to facilitate my musical growth, Dan kept me on task during our twice a month sessions and was always available in between sessions for any questions I might have had.

In short, I am very happy that I reached to Dan for lessons as he is a wonderful and enthusiastic teacher.

Dan Foulk is not only a great sax player, but also an amazing teacher. He is honest in his teaching style and observes each of students carefully. He listens deeply to them and catches what students are missing that will allow them to grow as a better musician and performer. Dan shows his students what they need to improve their technique and proficiency but also gives them the tools to develop an ear that is able to hear their own mistakes. This is one of the most important skills to have as a jazz musician. Personally, I really enjoyed studying with him and highly recommend a lesson with him whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or even a professional musician.

Online Saxophone Teacher

My philosophy on teaching revolves around the idea that on the foundation of instrumental technique and functional ear training, all other facets of music are made easier.
Developing instrumental technique teaches the student how to assess and target their weaknesses. This is necessary to make the process efficient. I work with students to create a plan so that they can develop quickly while practicing a reasonable amount. I know their lives are busy enough.
Functional ear training is a skill that not only makes playing music easier, but it also makes listening to music more enjoyable! This is a skill the student keeps for the rest of their lives, regardless of whether or not they continue to play their instrument as an adult.
For jazz music specifically, if the student wants to go down that road, I find it imperative to make sure the history of the music goes hand in hand with the craft of the music. The study of history gives greater context to the music we listen to, which ...
