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.

Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Perfect. He matched his lesson beautifully with the music I like and how I am likely to learn quickly. Could not ask for better.

Music is, and has always been, an obsession for me.

No one had to force me to practice, or transcribe, or listen. It's just something I love to do.

You can force yourself to learn music. But it's so much easier, and more fulfilling, when it's something that excites you; when you can't wait to pick up the horn.

Every student has their own version of this: a lens through which everything about music feels exciting and natural. My job as a teacher is to help you discover it.

For beginners, you might call this developing an interest or passion for music. Whether you're young or old, this is one of my favorite challenges as a teacher.

For advanced players, it may be more about finding your voice, or dealing with issues of ego, purpose, technique, etc. Having spent years studying with some of the best musicians in the world (Joe Lovano, Danilo Perez, John Patittucci, Kenny Werner, George Garzone, and others), I combine lessons from the masters with my own approach to help ...

About Dan

Originally from San Francisco, I have been playing saxophone for nearly 20 years. I have been fortunate to perform all over the world, including recent tours in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Panama, and Costa Rica, and have shared the stage with many great artists, including Danilo Perez, Kenny Werner,

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.

Brian is a great instructor. Perfect mix of easy going and knowledgeable. Im really happy with my progress and I'm feeling confident that I'm on the right path. If you want to learn but you're on the fence about taking lessons, make the move. Also the online format is working well, I was worried about that but pleasantly surprised.

"My son is currently taking online lessons with Lucas and we're both quite happy with the experience so far. My son has been playing tenor for 4 years (currently 10th grade- in concert, jazz and marching bands at school) and had only ever taken live lessons before, but we're finding that online works out well. No extra travel time/hassle, which is great since he doesn't drive yet- just log online from our basement. Lucas had good availability and has been open to reschedule as necessary. Lucas has helped him with pieces for honor band auditions so far with specific feedback and even I can hear the difference in my son's playing."

"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."

I received a great report about his music performance from school. Sergio is a wonderful music teacher, who is able to make the lesson full of energy and joy. I strongly recommend him for any student who wants to achieve great progress in Sax in no time."

"Kendra is an awesome instructor ... As an adult student new to the saxophone she not only taught me the fundamentals but also adjusted the lessons to the style of music I enjoy... My daughter took clarinet with Kendra and was just as happy... The other amazing thing was in a short period of time she brought me to the level where I could be a part of her adult saxophone chamber group... I would highly recommend Kendra whether you are new to the saxophone or clarinet or have been playing awhile and want to increase your level of play with the style of music you enjoy!"

And when I bring a question to class Carl develops that into a lesson, which keeps the material even more interesting.
