We highly recommend Dean for Sax lessons. For the past two years, Dean has been giving weekly lessons to my 13 year old son. Dean is kind, patient, reliable and developed a great rapport with my son. He also successfully prepared my son for his LaGuardia audition (high school for performing arts). Thanks to Dean’s efforts my son was admitted to this prestigious program.
