Beginner, Intermediate
I have been training on the saxophone for upwards of eleven years! I have been giving lessons since 2015, and I am qualified to teach beginners to early-intermediate players. I've earned top chairs in my county, district, and state, and students of mine have gone on to do the same in their own ensembles! I have also played in select honors bands, such as the Great American Marching Band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am a skilled teacher, having served as a middle school teacher's assistant and summer camp music instructor. My prices are competitive because I simply want to share the joy of music with you or your student!

What to expect when you take lessons with me:
-Flexible scheduling
-(If at my location) Lessons held in soundproofed state-of-the-art music practice rooms or theatre rehearsal spaces
-A judgement-free, creative environment!

(CANCELLATION POLICY: I will do my best to reschedule lessons with students if I am notified 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, the missed lesson will be paid for in full.)

About Ashley E.

Hey, there! My name is Ashley, I am currently a college student at Fordham University at Lincoln Center, and I have been training on the alto saxophone for upwards of eleven years. I am most suited to teach beginners or early-intermediate level students, so whether you're preparing for an audition, or you've never opened your case before, I'm here to help! My style of teaching is very goal-driven, so that I can cater my skill set to my client's to engender a positive, stimulating experience. I find such joy in sharing my love for music, and look forward to doing so with you or your student!

Our first lesson was great. Ashley quickly got where I was and what I needed and we were off to a great start. She gave me tips on how to seat and breathe correctly, how to place my mouth and fingers on the keys to get a better sound, and we started practicing a few notes. Within a couple of days she sent me detailed notes on what we had gone through in the first lesson and gave me some exercises for practicing. Great experience all around for a beginner like me and I look forward to keep learning from her!

My five lessons with Ashley was fruitful and productive. She takes time out to come up with a lesson plan. She also emails me a summary of the lesson after every lecture. With Ashley’s help I was able to improve my embouchure and expand on my ability to read and write music. I highly recommend you give her a try.
