Avatar of the tutor
Keith D.
Brooklyn, New York
Master the saxophone with an international expert musician.
The saxophone course draws from my extensive career as a performer in all kinds of groups and styles such as Latin American folk music, rock, classical and orchestral, and of course jazz. The saxophone lesson plan includes: 1) Breathing technique. 2) Embouchure and proper tone production. 3) Body posture. 4) Technique. 5) Learning to play by ear. 6) Learning to play music by reading it. 7) Basic music theory. 8) Improvisation (intermediate to advanced students). I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
About Keith D.

I am a professional saxophone player and arranger who has worked for the evening music program of the University of Chile as a saxophone instructor and ensemble coach. During my studies at UNT I also served as a teaching assistant for the Jazz Arranging class and as a grader for Music Theory. As a performer, I have worked in Latin American music groups, wind symphonic ensembles, big bands, saxophone quartets, rock bands, jazz bands, and both chamber and full symphonic orchestras. I would be glad to help you develop in any of these styles of music! I hold an MM in Jazz Studies from the University of North Texas (UNT). I also hold a BA and a Professional Certificate in Saxophone Performance and a BA in Music Theory from the University of Chile. .

Keith is an excelent teacher. He always demonstrated mastery over the contents and patience with his students. He is a trustworthy musician and I learned a lot of complex and advanced composition skills with his lessons.

Keith takes you and your musical potential extremely seriously — and he's also a hoot. With his invaluable help, I passed my admissions exam for a higher education program in music! His online set-up is fully equipped, and his teaching style is rich and fun. The best part is how much he believes in you. I felt he pushed me to go for more, and I discovered I actually had it in me! I cannot recommend him enough.
