***About me***

I am a Bay Area classical saxophonist, singer, writer and educator. Currently studying towards a B.M. of Music Education, my saxophone instructors have included Michael Hernandez. Saxophone Professor at San Jose State University, Dale Wolford, former Professor at SJSU, Dr. Tim McAllister, Professor at the University of Michigan, Dr. William Street, Professor at the University of Alberta.

***Saxophone Lesson Details***

I strive to mold my lessons to my student's goals--while they all have a core curriculum to develop proper technique, where our lessons go from there is entirely up to each individual student. Generally, within a few lessons, a student will have developed a proper embouchure, and be able to play basic melodies with proper rhythm and technique. Performance opportunities will be provided, as well as artistic insight based upon many years of experience. I will work with your student for however long they wish to guide them on their path to greatness, whether that is a couple months or throughout their high school career.

I teach lessons in the music building at SJSU.

· Saxophone · In studio Anthony is a great instructor. He is very attentive, detailed and knowledgable. He sees what needs work and has a very strong grasp of the fundamentals. He has a flexible schedule and can work at the student's pace. Anthony make sure the student does things the right way and doesn't develop bad habits.
