Overview

Hi! My name is Martin! I teach a broad range of musical subjects, including theory, recording and using audio software, and saxophone. I love to give students the ability to tackle musical problems with ideas from a broad range of disciplines, which I find equally valuable in my own work. I am very easy going, flexible, and will be sure to modify my lessons to suit your short term and long term needs.

I have a Master's degree in Music Composition from Brooklyn College, and a Bachelor's degree in both Music and Interactive Multimedia from The College of New Jersey, and have maintained a strong interest and knowledge of both music and the technological developments that allow for innovative compositions and performances.
I am very much looking forward to getting to know you, and helping you achieve your goals!

Martin was very helpful even before I first met him. I spoke with him a number of times and he advised me on which saxophone to get. I am very pleased with the saxophone he suggested.
Overall Martin is friendly and easy to work with. He comes to my house which is very good for me and he is punctual. He listens to what direction I want to go and never pushes to do what I am not interested in. The lessons are at my pace and I never feel any pressure. I am learning quickly and am enjoying the lessons.
