While my passion is jazz, I also have plenty of classical experience. I love teaching saxophone!!
I have been magnetized to the saxophone ever since I was introduced to the music of John Coltrane in the seventh grade. Since then I have been in a constant pursuit of deepening my understanding of music and all its beautiful forms, and sharing that knowledge with those who are interested! Hailing from Flagstaff, Arizona, I attended Western Michigan University on a four year scholarship and received my Bachelor of Music, Jazz Studies in 2009. While I was there I had the incredible privilege of studying with the great Trent Kynaston, as well as performing with some of the most influential jazz musicians today, including Bobby McFerrin, Stefon Harris, Billy Hart, Fred Hersch, and Randy Brecker. I now live in Chicago where I teach lessons and perform regularly with my band, The Winchester ...

Experienced Jazz Performer with specialized experience teaching beginning adults.
*** Travel Equipment *** For in-home lessons, a student should have their own instrument and music stand, as well as a room that can be uninterrupted and quiet for the duration of the lesson. *** Specialties *** I have extensive performance experience in jazz and rock music.

I studied saxophone performance at Millikin University in Decatur IL. I've been playing since I was in the fourth grade. I know all the saxophones and I've studied both jazz and classical styles. Though this is my first time teaching, I'm sure I can broaden perspectives and I certainly have enough music to keep you busy. My style is to let people fashion their own after learning where the modern saxophone comes from.
