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.

What an AMAZING teacher! Michael always has a positive attitude and connects well with people. He is definitely the highlight of my son’s week (age 10). Michael is talented, knowledgeable and kind. He can connect with all age groups. His studio is also an energetic and delightful place to be. He is a true gem and talented musician. My son says, “He is such a fun guy and great teacher!” He inspires my son.

Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been teaching saxophone for nearly thirty years, and offer a different approach to the instrument. While building strong technique and tone in your band and solo music, we will explore how the saxophone is used in music from around the world, including traditions that pre-date the saxophone itself by many centuries! While learning the basics of music theory, I also encourage playing by ear, and unleashing curiosity and creativity.

A great first lesson. Aage was able to identify my level and chart a course for lessons quickly, drawing on lots of resources and knowledge. I’m just starting clarinet with plenty of saxophone experience, and I think Aage is the right person to guide me.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been very fortunate to have had some incredible teachers over the years - George Garzone, Kenny Werner, Billy Kilson, Ed Tomassi, Shannon LeClaire, and many others - and I know how much of a difference the right teacher can make.

I love to teach, and have been teaching both privately and in a school setting, as a band director, for many years. I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from complete beginners to advanced players. Whether you want to learn how to read music, improve your technique, work on your sound, practice the fundamentals, develop your soloing, or all of the above, I can help take you to the next level.

I hope to work with you!

I look forward to my lessons with Dan every week. I’m a beginner alto player and Dan does a great job patiently answering all my questions and giving comprehensive advice. He’s very analytical and gives you the detailed context of why what you’re learning is important and how it fits into the context of playing in a band, different styles etc. He will flex lessons based on what you need to know but also what you’re interested in. Most importantly he’s fun and just an all around great guy. He’s the man, what else can I say.
M
Dan is kind and caring. He was very patient going over the super basics with a brand-new player! He gave good, clear instruction, and is focused on mastering the fundamentals so players can start with good habits and good sound, and so players can make future advancements more smoothly.
Lenka
Dan is a fountain of knowledge; an incredibly talented and eclectic artist. I have been struggling with alto sax for years but with Dan’s approach, I finally feel, I am making some progress. Dan tailors the lessons to fit your needs; making it challenging, comprehensive, engaging and fun. He helps me transcribe small parts of licks I like, which has been an invaluable experience for me. He makes sure that you REALLY get the material you are studying. Don’t just shake your head and say “yes”.
He is always there to answer your questions (no matter how dumb they may seem), encourages and motivates you.

"An Awesome Teacher

Yuki is a wonderful teacher. This is the first time I have ever had a private lesson and I am so glad and grateful that I found him. He is also a very professional and skillful saxophone teacher. Especially if you are trying out for Jazz Band, Region Band, etc., Yuki will give you a great deal of help, from his experiences to his skill. He knows all kinds of ways to break something apart and show you the most easy and clear way to understand it. From a parent and a student, I highly recommend Yuki as your saxophone teacher for anyone who's interested in saxophone and wants to get better at it!"

"Playing the sax has been my life-long dream. I remember how once, while watching online tutorials on YouTube, I came across one from Nick, in which he was showing how to play scales – in a very simple way. My gut feeling told me to reach out and communicate exactly with him. He then responded, advised me what instrument to choose, and we started training, which I not in the least regret. I am having classes with Nick online, which may seem a bit more complicated than face-to-face. However, I’m satisfied with the results and, especially, with the teacher’s approach. I am keen on his punctuality, professionalism, advice and recommendations. What’s more, he’s always willing to respond and counsel even beyond the planned lesson. I call him ‘my saxophone guru’! I wish him creative wins and new accomplishments. An absolutely outstanding teacher, that’s who he is! I will be his student as long as time allows. And the wish is there always. Thank you, Nick!"

"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."
