What are three things you enjoy about your playing and what are three things you wish were improved? I ask this question of each student so we can customize YOUR lessons and practice sessions. I love to see my students grow and learn what fuels their passion for music and we will develop exercises and songs that fit your interests. With ten years of teaching experience and multiple students in honor groups, I stand by studio's results!

About Alex S.

I attended the music program at California State University, Long Beach (Go Beach!), where I completed a bachelors of music in 2007. This time was spent immersed in saxophone performance, jazz studies, music theory, and music education. I have been active in music education for a decade, maintaining a private studio of woodwind students and coaching throughout Southern California. I previously served as woodwind instructor for schools in the Irvine and Long Beach Unified School Districts and now work for Mesa Verde Middle School in Moorpark, CA and Chaminade College Prep in West Hills, CA. My regular musical experiences include playing for Jazzy Ash and the Leaping Lizards, the Teryn Re Big Band, as well as leading my own ensemble. I have toured extensively with Jazzy Ash, with highlights including two residences at Lincoln Center in New York and performances at The Getty Museum, Lollapalooza, Lied Center at KU, Broad Stage, Miami Theater Center, Capitol Theatre, and many more.

Our son Charles started taking lessons with Alex Sadnik when he was in 6th grade, and he is now going to be a senior in high school. It was in -home until the pandemic last year. After changing to him, Charles made tremendous progress quickly. Alex is a terrific teacher. He has patience , and is encouraging. He would often spend part of the lesson playing together with him, which was helpful. He would also allow Charles to choose some of the music he was interested in learning.
We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants to learn Saxophone or flute . You won’t be disappointed!!

Thank you Alex for being such a great teacher, musician and mentor. My son has enjoyed playing and learning saxophone under your guidance for the past five years.
We are happy that the transition from in person to online lessons has been seamless. We find it helpful that you review his prerecorded music/practice clips ahead of time so that lessons are spent giving feedback on what is most important. We appreciate the extra effort and thought you put into planning each lesson as well as your customized worksheets. We value your professionalism, commitment, positivity and encouragement in his musical journey.
