Students and parents can expect an individualized curriculum, not dependent on a one particular book or method. Based around repertoire that the student chooses, I teach you all the necessary techniques to become a great saxophone player but through the music of your choice!
I offer virtual lessons through the video chat platform of your choice, so we can continue making music while social distancing!

About Izzy S.

Originally from Philadelphia, I am a 2018 graduate of world-renowned institution for contemporary music, Berklee College of Music, where I earned a degree in K-12 music education. A classically trained flutist, clarinetist, saxophonist, oboist and bassoonist, I have studied with instrumental virtuosos in Philadelphia, as well as some of the greatest up-and-coming musicians in the world at Berklee. I have over twenty woodwind credits in musical theater pit orchestras in the greater Boston area, as well a passion for teaching music.
I have experience teaching beginning to advanced students from kindergarten to adult learners. Students can expect to develop proper instrument technique and a beautiful sound, along with an assortment of appropriate repertoire and a love of music!
