Private Saxophone Teacher

My music education began 27 years ago with private lesson on clarinet. 5 years later, I began studying guitar, bass, theory and improvisation.

I am a professional musician who plays guitar for a local cover band. I also sub for local groups in the area and have been asked to perform as a guest musician. This is also my 4th year as musical director of a brass band in which I am responsible for selecting and arranging their music, as well as directing then during live performances.

Studying theory and multiple instruments at a young age allowed me to become quite diverse as I am able to play or teach any style. Lessons are customized to each student to ensure that the fundamentals are mastered as well as focusing on what interests the individual student.

I have taught music for 7 years and my students have ranged in age from 6-45 years old.

About Elliot

I believe that all students need to learn the fundamentals of their instrument, but lessons should be fun and geared toward the individual. My lessons are customized to each student and are the perfect combination of fundamentals and studying the styles, artists, and topics that interest YOU!

Excellent teacher, really good with teaching
Joe D.
Stephen does an excellent job of instructing and encouraging. I've always wanted to learn how to play an instrument but was a little intimidated due to my lack of experience. Stephen put my anxiety to rest and made me feel comfortable learning something new. Did I mention I am 52? Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Stephen shows it just takes the right teacher.

A truly talented musician, composer, and person! Lisa's passion for music is envious and evident... and it shines every time she picks up an instrument or teaches someone!
Rick
Took jazz lessons from Lisa and learned a lot!!! It was a great experience and she is a great teacher! Lisa has a great way of pushing your comfort zone and bringing out your best. Highly recommended!!!
Mary Anne
As an adult alto sax player, I had Lisa as a director/instructor in several small jazz ensembles. She is supportive and gave me a positive push ("a you can do this") in soloing/improvising. Lisa has been a mentor to me as I continue playing the sax and with her encouragement I was successful in performing in jazz band camp for 2 summers!

Online Saxophone Teacher

I believe in getting students playing music they love as soon as possible. I have 9 years of teaching experience, as well as a masters degree in music education from Northwestern University. In that time I have learned how to teach important technique and ear training through playing fun and engaging pieces of music in a variety of styles, from classical to jazz, funk, RnB, ska, and more. Music is a fun, practical subject, and it should be taught that way.

About Laurie

I have 10 years of teaching experience as a private teacher, a classroom music teacher, and a band director. I employ many different styles and methods while teaching, to ensure my students receive a well rounded music education, but also have fun. I love to use backing tracks, and I like to teach

Miss Bonner is a very patient and fun teacher, whose methods have boosted me from a beginner to playing college standard pieces by Mozart. She is great at playing clarinet. Classical, Jazzy; any genre you choose and Miss Bonner can teach you well. At the end of the school year, I won an award for being the best member in our school band. I could never have done it without Miss Bonner.
Jason
Ms. Bonner has been such an inspirational teacher over all the years she has taught me. She has helped me improve my clarinet techniques by pushing me to join various bands and best of all, introduced me to Jazz. Also, she is a really fun teacher, always making her lessons fun and entertaining. Without her, I wouldn't have the enthusiasm I have now for music.

Online Saxophone Teacher

Greetings Everyone,

I have been playing the clarinet and saxophone for twenty three years and teaching private lessons for seventeen years. My education includes two undergraduate degrees in performance from Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA and Boston Conservatory in Boston, MA. My Master's Degree is from Boston University in Music Education. Teaching private lessons is my passion and nothing makes me happier than to see my students succeed in their future endeavors.

Linda
Lauren taught my son saxophone for 5 years, beginning with his very first lesson at age 9, and continuing throughout middle school. She was always very patient, reassuring, and encouraging. Lauren really helped to develop my son's love for music and playing the sax! She prepared him for middle school jazz band auditions, and helped with his jazz band music throughout those years. Lauren challenged him with new selections when his school band music became too easy, but always allowed him to work at a pace he found comfortable. Now in HS, he's very busy with all things band, so lesson time is limited for him, but we wouldn't hesitate to call Lauren again.
Scott and Marcia
Lauren has been giving my son saxophone lessons for over 4 years. She has been an excellent teacher always on time and available. He has progressed under her direction very well. Currently, she's teaching our daughter acoustic guitar and we've been very happy with her progress.
Maddy C.
We had a little trouble with our connection but Lauren is great and very patient. Hopefully we can get all the issues with the connection worked out and we are looking forward to the next class! I think it’s going to help my daughter a lot!
