· Saxophone · In studio First time blowing into a saxophone in 2 decades plus! But Jason is making it easy for me to get back to playing!

· Saxophone · In studio I've had many teachers over the years. Jason is probably the best. He is patient and encouraging. I always felt better after I had a lesson. He will help demonstrate how something should sound by playing it and providing recordings. I like his style of teaching. He does not put you down. He always finds something positive to say even when providing criticism. He is a first rate performer as well as a teacher.

· Saxophone · In studio I love learning the saxophone with Jason! Jason is so patient and takes his time to ensure I understand the fingerings and how to read music. I'm learning a ton more than I used to with my old saxophone teacher. If you're thinking about sax lessons, definitely give Jason a try! Your sax skills will improve fast. You won't regret it.

· Saxophone · In studio Jason is very effective in teaching my 5th grade son. My son is now very comfortable playing the saxophone. The lessons are mostly classical, but they learn pop music whenever my son feels like it. He is easy to work with.

· Saxophone · In studio I've been studying with Jason for about 8 months. He is an excellent player and helps me a lot. He is always very nice and patient in teaching, and we always had a good time in the lesson.
