Teaching since:
May 2005

I currently teach private lessons in saxophone, flute, and piano and have experience working with individuals as well as small groups. In 2007, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the University of Washington where I studied jazz and classical saxophone. For the past 15 years, I have been performing with many professional groups, ranging in styles from big band jazz, classical, samba, funk, to gospel and blues.
As a private instructor, I genuinely encourage efficient practice, solid technique and good tone quality, as well as an appreciation for music. I also incorporate the study of music theory and the study of music fundamentals in my lessons. I have experience teaching the genres of classical, jazz, modern, folk, and pop music and hope to extend the joy of learning music to my students. Over the past ten years I have been able to help my students grow and gain confidence, which brings on-going fulfillment to their musical experience.

Gwen was a wonderful instructor. She was so knowledgable about both music theory and saxophone skills. I would totally recommend her.

Very friendly and extremely helpful I’m really looking forward to my next lesson. I love how she jumped right in and got me playing.

It was an honor and a pleasure working with Gwen. Due to personal circumstances, I had to stop working with her, but I highly recommend her as an instructor. She's very knowledgeable, accommodating, and made me feel comfortable. You'll find yourself in good hands with her.
