My lessons adhere to classical pedagogy with an emphasis on reading notation, as well as applied ear training. Whether you haven't picked up the instrument yet, have been playing recreationally on and off for a few years, or study at the collegiate level, my approach builds student's classical repertory, tone production and voicing for all registers, fast technique, and accurate intonation. I always use a variety of fundamental exercises alongside pieces that teach what the student is working on

About Kyle B.

I don't just teach students how to play an instrument, I teach students important creative techniques for developing musical skills. Making music is a life skill that helps children and adults of all ages realize, develop, and utilize their expressive and creative talents. In my studio, I focus on the union of music theory, history, and performance no matter the piece! Whether you'd like to play the theme from "Jeopardy" or how to analyze the distinctive components of a sonata form, I can help you acheive your musical goals!

Overall, he's a fantastic teacher! My daughter always comes out of lessons with a smile on her face. He's inspired her to work hard and go from 10 minutes a day of practicing-- what her beginning band teacher prescribed, to 30 minutes to an hour. Kayla and I are both very thankful for the quality of his lessons as well as the motivation he gives her! Thank you!

Kyle gave me a few lessons during my college woodwinds methods class on the sax. As a pianist attempting to learn a wind instrument Kyle's advice and time were a HUGE help to a total beginner like myself. He definitely knows the sax inside and out and without his help my sax test grades in woodwinds would have been considerably lower than what they were. I definitely encourage any students looking for a sax teacher to choose Kyle because of his extensive knowledge on the instrument and approachable nature.

Kyle has helped me with some very difficult passages in my solo repertoire! Incredibly helpful! I made a lot of progress in little times.
