Sound is the key. Developing and nurturing a solid sound opens up all other aspects of music. Once we have a solid sound we can depend on everything we play is more effective.
I teach basic musicianship along with advanced sound production techniques.
Spontaneous creation and composition. I can help you freely improvise in any situation and become a functionary player as well as a soloist.

About Dave S.

I have been playing the saxophone fro 45 years. I think its all about the sound, the tone. I played with the Microscopic Septet and William Parker's Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra.

Dave is a great teacher and I would recommend him to anyone who asks :)
He's flexible (in both scheduling and teaching) and adapts to whatever the student needs or wants.

Dave was my first saxophone teacher and I am still seeing his insights and working on his lessons almost 40 years later! He has a deep knowledge of Jazz and Blues and years of experience in a wide range of musical settings. Most importantly he personifies the joy of music making. A great teacher for students on all levels.

I'm a beginning saxophone player and have been working with Dave for a couple of months. Very patient and inspiring, I've been very happy with him.
