I have Alto and Tenor Saxophones, and can teach you to play and read, improvise, and how to make it sing

About Scott
Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Re
cording, and Live Sound for 16 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.

I have been teaching saxophone since 2006. In working with beginners and intermediate students, will focus on production of sound, fingerings, breath support and, for fun, playing & learning songs that you would like to play! For Advanced players working on simple to advanced patterns, learning basic to advanced Jazz theory, learning songs (jazz standards included), practicing sight-reading, practicing improvisation and improvised ideas.

About James
I am a dedicated musician. I have played the saxophone for the past seventeen years, and along the way have learned how to play the flute, clarinet, piano, drum kit and how to sing as well. I love teaching music, as I believe it is proper to give away what I have learned to others. Not only to keep the tradition of live music alive, but to pass on the love for music to younger generations. I have perfect pitch, and have worked on ear training for the majority of my life as a musician. I compose regularly and have a comprehensive understanding of music theory. I also perform regularly!

About Kris J.

Close

I've played the sax for 10 years and have some experience in music education. I know the instrument thoroughly and would love to share the fun of the sax with you.

About Kris
I'm a pretty laid back easy going guy. If you want to learn a variety of things, check out my subjects and I'd be happy to help you.

I have quite a bit of life knowledge and experience that I'm willing to share. I see myself as more of a tutor, helping students along the path to get better grades and understand their subject material better.

Some things to expect during a lesson: We will go over the material and find any areas you are struggling with. We will hone in on those areas and get to the root of the issue, then build you up so that you have a solid base of understanding and can grow from there.

I hope we can partner to enhance your education and knowledge.

My goal when I teach a student is to help them realize their potential on the instrument. Every person is different and so I do my best to adapt to every student I get. I also take into account the interests of the student as well. Everyone has to learn basics, but how you learn those basics is important. My goal is to help every student feel accomplished on their instrument.

Born in Flint, Michigan, Benny began studying music in Elementary School. In order to nurture his talent, his mother moved his family to Detroit where he attended and graduated from the Detroit School of Arts.

I love passing on what I've learned while I've been at school! While I might be young, I have taken lessons with the great jazz saxophonist and arranger Charles "Chip" McNeill and the world renowned classical saxophone teacher and performer Debra Richtmeyer so I hope to pass down the love of the instrument that they've instilled in me. I'll cover the basics of the saxophone, as well as clarinet and flute if interested, and some great exercises and methods that my teachers have me do in order to improve. But in the end, I'll let the student decide what they want to learn. I'm open to many music styles and will try to lead each student in the right direction.

About Adam
Hello future students!
My name is Adam and I am currently a junior studying jazz saxophone at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. While I might be young, I do have teaching experience with middle school band. I hope to pass on what I've learned from my teachers, Charles McNeill and Debra Richtmeyer, two world-renowned professionals. My main instrument is saxophone, however, I do double on both clarinet and flute and have a background in piano as well! I would love to teach any beginner or intermediate level students over the summer and grow along with you musically!

Music as always been a huge part of my life. It's been my outlet from the day-to-day since I was a young child. Going through the process of learning music and my instrument has always fascinated me, and I'd be happy to teach you the beauty of this art form and help you find your own unique voice! I have a great deal of insight on saxophone technique (scales/warm ups), improvisation (jazz/contemporary), preparing classical pieces/etudes, music theory/harmony, etc.

About Izzy
My musical journey started at a very young age, singing in church and elementary school choirs. I started taking sax lessons in 5th grade, when I decided that I wanted to be a consummate musician. Every Saturday morning, I took lessons in Jazz and Classical at Temple University's Community Music Scholar's Program from grades 6-12. I'm a graduate of Creative and Performing Arts high school ('15) in Philly and The University of the Arts ('19).

I've played lead alto in my high school's jazz band and the UArts Z Big Band. I've also played with many other musicians, vocalists, rappers, poets, etc. around the tristate area and along the east coast. I've traveled to Italy with the Philadelphia All City Orchestra in 2015 for a 9 day concert tour, and have played with notable musicians such as Larry McKenna, Tony Micelli, Tom Lawton, Don Liuzzi,
Micah Jones. I've also played on numerous recording sessions for local artists.

My goal is to become one with the music and create effortlessly through my practice regiments and collaborating with others, regardless of the genre.

Lessons are customized for your goals, and the styles of music that you love.

About Joe
I'm a professional saxophone artist and a teacher of woodwinds/piano as well as improvising / theory / songs-learning techniques for any instrumentalist or singer. I studied music at New York University, as well as with many great saxophonists and workshop masterclass instructor, and have ten years' experience teaching woodwinds, piano/keys, and other musicians of all ages, levels, and backgrounds.

Lessons and curriculum are all customized for your goals, and my students all learn how to play the music that They Love- as well as widen their appreciation for the musical arts, and learn the essential components and benefits of having their own Practice which can translate into schooling, sports, and careers in any field. While competitiveness is not the focus of my teaching approach, students of mine have gone on to win auditions for
region/state bands; get into jazz major programs; or increase their chair in the school band.

As a performer, I spent nearly ten years working with some of the best in the business in New York City and on tours of Europe, the United States, and Brazil - including regular work with members of James Brown's band, Lauryn Hill's band, Prince's band, Fela Kuti's band, and numerous others. Other Google-able semi-famous artists I've worked with include the MacArthur genius George E. Lewis; Archie Bell; Karikatura; Jae Soto; and my own experimental trio dustlights (currently putting out records on the world-renowned jazz label Ropeadope). I have written/arranged horns for an India-New York colloboration Maati Baani, which went viral (660k views). And I have written and produced music for film featured at the Cannes festival.

I am opening a private lesson studio at my home in Downtown Carrboro (across the street from Open-Eyed Cafe), and also making myself available for at-home lessons in the greater Triangle area.

Please feel free to contact me here with any questions, comments, or inquiries. And thank you for considering me for your musical education.
