I like to teach my students what they want to learn! I'm always game for setting up a fun path to being able to play your favorite songs as fast as possible. I don't scold or shame and having a blast is the name of my game. I can teach you to improvise, read music, become a strummer or virtuoso, it's all up to you.

Experienced teacher of 6 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so that students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of saxophone skills. I specialize in classical performance and typically use Standard of Excellence or Accent on Achievement band method books.

About Mikaela
Music teacher looking to keep busy over the summer working with bright young students eager to improve before the new school year!

I have a Bachelor of Music degree from San Jose State University in music education and have taught private lessons for the last couple of years. I have also recently completed the teaching credential program in Music and teach Kindergarten through 8th grade Music for the Pioneer Union School District. I have played the clarinet for 17 years and studied with Dr. Janet Averett for the last 4 while attending SJSU. What I learned from her about teaching is invaluable, I hope to be the inspiration and encouragement to my students that she was to me. I hope to encourage them to express themselves as well teach them good practice skills. Lessons with me will focus on not just the technical aspect to playing thei
r instrument but the creative/expressive aspect to playing music on any instrument. After all, playing an instrument is about making MUSIC!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to provide for themselves their instrument, a music stand, and two chairs when in their own home. I will provide music if I can and, when at the university, the chairs and stand as well. They should also have the music they are working on at school if they have some.

Mikaela helped ramp my daughter from having no clarinet experience to being a fairly proficient player ready for the school band, in less than a school year. Mikaela is friendly, points out little things that help make big improvements in my daughter's playing, and keeps checking on the basics as well (embouchure, finger positioning, etc). Mikaela has been very flexible and has a good teaching manner and attitude which has made my daughter's clarinet learning experience a very positive one. We look forward to continuing to work with Mikaela!

I would love to teach you Saxophone

About Max
I am a performing musician who is passionate about helping students achieve their goals. My lessons focus on developing technique, practice strategies, a good sound, aural skills, music theory knowledge, and stylistic fluency.

I currently perform over fifty concerts a year with the Asylum Quartet, an award-winning ensemble acclaimed for virtuosity, creativity, and innovation. I have also performed with the Juilliard Orchestra, the U.S. Coast Guard Band, and International Opera Theater. I hold a Master's in Music from The Hartt School and a Bachelor of Music summa cum laude from Arizona State University (ASU).

I have eight years of private teaching experience working with students of all ages and backgrounds. Additionally, I completed a ten-week private teaching mentorship at the Hartt Community Division with saxophone instructor S
heri Brown.

Though I specialize in saxophone, I also love teaching beginning and intermediate piano.

*** Lesson Scheduling***

I offer lessons on a monthly basis (4 lessons total) or semester basis (17 lessons total). Committing to multiple lessons encourages students’ progress and dedication to the instrument, and enables me to reserve a regular time-slot in my schedule.

I do not accept students on a week-to-week basis.

***Lesson Materials***

Saxophone students must have an instrument in good repair and required accessories (reeds, mouthpiece, etc.). Piano students must have access to a tuned piano or a keyboard with touch-sensitivity. I am happy to recommend instrument and accessory brands; please check with me before a major purchase. Quality, working equipment is critical to students’ success.

I periodically request that students purchase books and other lesson materials.

IMPORTANT: If you are planning to buy a saxophone or mouthpiece, please consult with me first. Having a good quality saxophone and mouthpiece is essential to your success. There are a number of cheap saxophones and mouthpieces readily available, but they are often of poor quality. I can recommend options for your first saxophone or mouthpiece purchase that may be more expensive, but will help you succeed in the long term.

Experienced saxophone teacher of over 20 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of technical skills. I specialize in jazz and contemporary music, typically use my own work sheets, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: keyboard, whiteboard, computer, and speakers.

About Quamon
I've been playing saxophone for over 20 years and hold a degree in music performance. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of traveling and performing as a professional along with being recognized for various awards for my improvisational and compositional skills. I've released 5 CD's of my own which showcase a lot of my original music. One of my targets in helping students is to help bring out what they already have inside their soul. I had great teachers that helped me to better express what I was hearing and imagining inside, and I want to pour into my students out of the abundance of what I've received from my teachers in addition to my own personal experience in the area of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to start out by breaking down how I look at music from the stand point of it having two sides, a technical side &
a conceptual side.

The technical side deals with all of the mechanical things needed for one to have together to get around on the instrument first like, sound production, tone quality, scales, arpeggios, etc.

The Concept side deals with what music the student came up listening to from the stand point of what genre, what artists, what songs, etc. Then, I'll need to know what are the goals that are desired to be accomplished based on what the student projects conceptually by way of the artists that they like.

Then in future lessons we can break down the details on how to actually get to the desire goal of the student.

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.

About Aage
Oregon native Aage (pronounced like Owen without N) has been teaching woodwinds to students of all ages for thirty years. He has performed throughout the US and Denmark, as well as Iceland (International Viola Congress) and Holland (World Bass Clarinet Conference). He taught for many years at The College of Idaho and Northwest Nazarene University, and performed for over twenty years with the Boise Philharmonic and Darkwood Consort. He has released three CDs on Portland-based Rampur Records, received a 2007 Performing Arts Fellowship from the Idaho Commission on the Arts, and is the leading scholar and performer of the douçaine (early oboe). He teaches both modern and historical winds, with the unique twist of encouraging students of both modern instruments such as clarinet or saxophone, and early instruments such as recorder and double-re
eds, to engage in everything from medieval and traditional music to jazz and classical.

Aage enjoys teaching students of all ages, from beginning to college level, including homeschoolers and adult beginners.

I loved lessons with Aage, his spunky attitude and constant encouragement is second to none. Learning with Aage, I didn't realize how much he really offered until I became a teacher myself. He was able to foster my love of music while still giving me the skills I needed to win the Idaho State Solo Championship in 2007. I was also exposed to music written long before the clarinet was created and with his encouragement, participated in numerous honor groups and music related community service.

I've been teaching Saxophone for 15 years and my students have gone on to College, and other performing goals.I use a variety of books from the typical book you would use as a student in a band program to a more advanced method for other players. Each student is different so I try to evolve to meet their specific needs and learning styles. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! I plan and offer yearly student performances to give students a practical application to their instruction.

My goal when teaching lessons is to provide instruction for producing sound on the saxophone, provide a solid foundation of knowledge in the basics of music theory, and to introduce the student to improvisation, specifically in the Jazz idiom.

About Michael
Hi, and thank you for your interest!

I have been teaching private saxophone lessons since 2009, and am currently available to teach lessons online, or at your home in the Las Vegas/Henderson area of Nevada.

I teach students of all skill levels, from basic concepts like assembling the saxophone, sound production and beginner theory to the more advanced areas of transcribing, improvising and advanced Jazz theory. My lesson plan is designed to introduce reading music in conjunction with saxophone playing, and while I have plenty of prepared material to keep our lessons progressing quickly, I will work at your pace in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere.

I am currently enrolled in the Graduate College of the University of Nevada Las Vegas, pursuing a Master's in Music in Jazz Composition and Theory. I hold a BA in Music (Jazz Perfor
mance) from St. Francis Xavier University in my home province of Nova Scotia, Canada. From 2010 to 2016 I worked as a show band musician for Carnival Cruise Lines, covering alto, tenor, and baritone sax positions and doubling on flute and clarinet.

Whether you are a parent looking for a private instructor for your child, a student preparing for an audition, a hobbyist or an established musician looking to pick up another instrument, I can show you the ins and outs of my favorite instrument.

Thank you for your consideration, and I hope to meet you soon!

Michael

I figure out how each student thinks and works, in order to give them the best methods to learning and practicing music. The fact that I got one Classical Diploma and one Jazz Diploma in Conservatory makes me able to teach the instrument in any style of music, with all the possible techniques. We make faster progress with something we love, that's why my teaching is about learning saxophone techniques over the student's favorite songs (can be classical, jazz, pop, rock...any style).
