Teaching since:

Hi, my name is Dakota. I have a Bachelor of Music from California State University of San Bernardino for saxophone performance and about 13 years of playing experience.

I want to help my students learn in a way that does not intimidate them. We grow best when we love what we do, so I want everyone to enjoy each lesson so they can't wait to open their case again. At the same time our goal is to understand how to practice smart and be self-dependent learners.

I will help with whatever aspect of playing you would like, whether it is technique, reading, theory, listening (improvisation), or if there is an audition you would like help preparing for. I'm always eager to teach, so please don't hesitate to contact me. If you are in the area and want some help, just shoot me a message! Looking forward to learning together!

Dakota is very patient and is very knowledgeable about saxophone pedagogy. I’m thankful to have such a mentor to look up to and I hope one day to play as well as him.
