Private Saxophone Teacher

I figure out exactly where you are in your technique and knowledge of music and of the instrument. Then, I start teaching from there! For me, the goal of lessons should be the goal of the student, and I do my best to honor that while pushing my students to surpass those goals.

My ultimate aim, is to provide you with an approach to practicing and performing music, that keeps you wanting to go back to do more.

In my career, I primarily play the tenor and baritone saxophones, but I mostly teach alto, and play soprano sometimes. Additionally, I also play the clarinet, bass clarinet, flute and piccolo. With this experience, I help out a lot of my more advanced saxophone students with doubling on these instruments, so they can be prepared for college and the professional world.

I encourage my advanced Jr. High and High School students to audition for various honor groups throughout California and the country such as SCSBOA, CBDA, JBOA, etc. With my background in these groups, I ...

As an NYC jazz musician, It is imperative that I have a well rounded grasp on the saxophone to perform at the highest level and express myself without having the horn being an obstacle. I teach all ages at all levels and teach all my students to develop fundamental skills on the saxophone as well as making practice routines that best suit their strengths and leave them a well rounded saxophonist. Above all, I want my students to have fun while learning the sax and apply the knowledge I give them to their everyday lives.
