I will teach you the fundamental basics as well as some tricks I learned from various artists I've played with. We will be using the Jamey Abersold books, Bob Mintzer books, and some of the tunes in the fake books. Also we will work on scales. I will also teach you how to write and compose your own music using my background music I send you.

About Frixos
Frixos states that his love for music probably started before he was born. “I’m pretty sure the Motown sounds my mother loved to listen and move to permeated to me through her.” Add to that his exposure to different ethnic sounds like Greek (his origins) folklore and contemporary music, Portuguese Fado (his birthplace and early childhood), Italian Bel Canto and modern pop, American Jazz, Afro, etc. and it’s easy to see how music helped shape Frixos’ passion. Each had an influence on him, “as they were incessantly played by my parents,” Frixos adds. “In fact it would be safe to say that music was the predominant form of entertainment at home."

By the age of seven, Frixos started to frequent a music school where he was introduced to percussion instruments. Soon after, he took on classical guitar based on the UK Royal Academy of Music cu
rriculum. A couple of years later in 1998, Frixos found his true calling … music composition, Jazz and the Saxophone. Frixos’ purple tenor sax goes everywhere he goes!

“Part of my love for the Saxophone is rooted in this instrument’s versatility for improvisation.” Moving into music composition seemed a natural course for Frixos to follow, culminating in his graduation in 2013 with a University of Florida Music Composition BA from The New World School of the Arts in Miami.

“I was fortunate to be selected to play in various collegiate and other Jazz bands and be mentored by great jazz performers and educators.” Among them was Ed Calle, twice nominated for the Latin Grammy Award; Joe Donato, one of the most active and innovative musicians working in the field of jazz who has performed with many of the greats including Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Carmen McRae, Nina Simone, Jack Jones, and Arturo Sandoval; Rafael Valencia where “I was honored to play for his Latin Jazz Big Band” says Frixos; the wonderful pianist Jim Gasior who has played with Ed Calle, Wendy Pedersen, Fernando Ulibarri and Aaron Lebos; the published and well decorated guitarist Dr. Mike Di Liddo, to name a few.

Of course there were lesser known people that had a profound influence on Frixos for which he makes it a point to say that he is “eternally grateful”. He adds, “My passion for composing was further affirmed thanks to Dr. Susan Epstein Garcia who showed me that there’s no limit to musical expression.” Dr. Ferdinando De Sena brought Frixos another dimension through his teachings of electronic music.

Frixos seeks to create variety in his compositions, by using worldly rhythms and sounds expressed through a multitude of instrumental expressions to create his own unique contemporary sound. “I look for connections between different music genres, from classical, rock, pop, funk, reggae, fusion, jazz etc. These connections are what I bring to my music” continues Frixos.

In October 2007 Frixos released his first CD titled “Cause Frixion” which was dedicated to fund-raising for The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida. This album included a tune he wrote earlier that year called “Freedom”. Other works have been published more recently on the internet, namely cdbaby, iTunes etc. and are played on internet radio stations.

Frixos continues to perform gigs with different musicians and bands in venues around the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area, including recording sessions for Fourth Dimension and others. He plays multiple instruments including alto, soprano and tenor sax, flute and keyboards. His performances comprise events at the renowned Van Dyke Café on Lincoln Road; Avenue D; Crescendo Jazz and Blues Lounge; Churchill’s Pub, a bastion for local musicians; Tobacco Road, the oldest music bar in Miami; Blue Jean Blues in Ft. Lauderdale where Al Kanovsky for The South Florida Jazz Scene wrote on October 15 2012, “They continued, raucously on, with everybody, musicians and audience having fun. A young man walked in, sax case in hand. Joe (Donato) invited him up to jam. What can I say. His name is Frixos, (yes it's right) and this kid can blow.”

Frixos demonstrates an expert understanding of music theory. He adapts to different learning styles with ease no matter what your level may be. I highly recommend taking time out of your day to spend at least an hour with him if you have not had an opportunity to find answers to any of your musical questions. Frixos will leave you with a new found desire to discover music in a new way every lesson. Highly recommended.

Philadelphia, PA

Not many teachers can say that they are an active teacher and performer; fewer of those can say that they maintain their own private studio at the end of their public school day. That being said, I think what really separates me as a teacher is not my many hours of teaching, but rather my dedication to my students. I teach outside of my public school job because I feel that music can be a powerful and underrepresented force in a student's public school education. I strive to help students realize musical concepts in ways that inform both their musicianship, and their concept of learning.

About Daniel
Since graduating from Temple in 2016, my passion for shaping the next generation has offered me many opportunities in the world of education. From my experience in a public schools, to managing my own private lesson studio, I have gained an immense respect and appreciation for the craft of teaching. In teaching others, I have informed my own learning process, and have approached other crafts such as improvisation, musical instrument repair, and software engineering at a high level.

I have been taking flute lessons with Dan for the past four months. My technique and improvisational skills have increased dramatically since I started with Dan, and I have seen myself grow as a musician much quicker than when I was getting lessons elsewhere. I also always feels very comfortable asking him any questions that I have (no matter how silly) and I find that he is very good at communicating complex ideas. He's also incredibly kind and patient! I would definitely recommend him to anyone for flute (and saxophone/clarinet) lessons - he's a step above other teachers in the Philly area.

I wish there were more teachers like Dan. He is kind, passionate, understanding, flexible. What I like most about lessons though is the fact that he asks me, "What did you learn this week?" almost every lesson. If you haven't taken a lesson with him yet, do it! You'll be amazed how much you learn.

Over our first few lessons I will assess your ability level and generate a lesson plan tailored to fit your skills and interests. While I specialize in jazz, the focus of the lessons is completely up to you and what you want to learn. I'm capable of teaching instrumental proficiency, sight reading skills (note/rhythm identification), music theory, ear training, and improvisation.

ATTENTION!
I will be moving back to NYC on August 24th, 2018. I will continue to offer online lessons but my face-to-face lesson location will change. I've updated my address to where my lessons will be in NYC.

I've been studying saxophone for 9 years and have loved every second of it. I'm studying at The New School of Jazz in New York City, but am home for the summer in Washington. I'm really laid back and aim to make lessons as comfortable as possible for you. I want to see you have fun and succeed!

When taking lessons with me, you will be learning from a musician that has performed and recorded with Grammy-level instrumentalists such as Alex Sipiagin, Ulysses Owens Jr., Christian Sands, Yotam Silberstein, Gil Goldstein, Ben Williams, Reuben Rogers, and Michael Dease. Having studied and performed in multiple genres including classical, jazz, R&B, musical theater, gospel, and others, I will be able to show you how to master your instrument in any context. If you are an advanced musician looking to find a unique voice in this field, look no further. Having recorded my own compositions commercially with some of the most well-regarded artists in New York, you will be studying with someone who knows what it takes to develop their own personal style successfully. I teach everything from fundamentals, to theory, to composition, to doubling, to improvisation and more. I would love to get to know you and share with you what my teachers so graciously shared with me!

About Daniel
Greetings! Thank you for taking a look at my profile!

As someone who was born into a life of music (everyone in my family is an instrumentalist), nothing gives me more joy than to engage in its performance, creation, or teaching. In my earlier years I played on multiple musical theater shows in Florida such as The Addams Family, Spamelot, Once On This Island, Reefer Madness, Five Guys Named Moe, and Chicago, where I played various saxophone, clarinet, and flute parts. After receiving two bachelor's degrees: one in jazz studies and one in clarinet performance, I went on to receive a master's degree in jazz composition at Manhattan School of Music in New York City. During my years of professional performance in New York, I have recorded two original records, one of which with grammy-level artists such as Ulysses Owens Jr., Reuben Rogers,
Christian Sands, and Michael Dease. I have also performed and recorded with Alex Sipiagin, Yotam Silverstein, Gil Goldstein, and Ben Williams. Before moving to New York, I performed with the Disney land All-American College band in Anaheim, California, and then, a few years later, participated in the Betty Carter jazz Ahead program in Washington, D.C. I was also accepted to the Metropole workshop for jazz arrangers in The Netherlands, hosted by Vince mendoza, Becca Stephens, and the Metropole Orchestra, the premiere jazz and pop orchestra in the world. I was accepted among 7 other international composers as the single representative of the United States. Having received rave reviews from famed publications such as jazz music archives, jazz weekly, and all about jazz, my body of work is constantly growing.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in taking lessons!
