For my Middle School and High School students, I find preparing them to audition for Southern California Honors Band (and potentially All-State Band) to be very rewarding and a great goal. Even if they choose not to audition or don't get in, great strides are made in their playing.

I am a saxophonist and clarinetist and have been teaching for over 12 years. I am currently the saxophone professor at California State University, Northridge, I also maintain a studio of private saxophone and clarinet students throughout Los Angeles County, and am the saxophone and clarinet instructor at HYPERIUMconservatory in Rolling Hills, Palos Verdes.
I specialize in everything from beginners in elementary or middle school through high school students, college audition preparation, and also teach undergraduate and graduate students.
I previously held teaching positions at the University of Southern California, Sinai Akiba Academy, and Young Musicians Foundation.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am currently teaching lessons in the following areas/cities, so even if you are out of my 10 miles radius, feel free to message me!
Lessons combine work on sound production, technical work, along with fun music (such as movie music) as well as repertoire and exercises to develop students musical skills. As a teacher I have worked with both 6 year-old and adult beginners, college music majors and graduate students, always tailoring how I teach for each student.
It is my goal that each student is able to play at least one simple tune by the end of the first lesson. Often, they can do much more!
*** Specialties ***
Teaching Saxophone students aged 7-76, beginners through graduate students. We work on technique sound/tone quality, articulation, and musicality. It is my goal to not only develop every students technical abilities but also to eventually help them to find their own voice.+ Read More
