Lesson Details

Saxophone

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I focus on making sounds from the instrument and getting the basics of wetting the reed, using just the mouth piece, and demonstrating different capabilities and sounds from my own playing. Once the basics are learned I move on to simple pieces together and get them used to hearing melodies through the saxophone.

I am a graduate student pursuing an MFA in Electronic Music and received my dual degree BM from Berklee College of Music in Composition and Electronic Production and Design.

I am an alto/tenor saxophonist and clarinetist, performing in symphonic wind ensembles, orchestras, and musical theatre pit ensembles. I also sing in concert choirs as a baritone/bass, and have played lead and supportive roles on stage in musical theatre shows.

As a composer I write choral, chamber, musical theatre and electroacoustic music. My other works include sonic installation pieces that encompass recording, sampling, mixing, surround sound, and production. I have also written music and created sound effects for several video games and trailers.

I can teach composition, orchestration, and basics in mixing, production, and sound design. In instrumental studies I teach classical, contemporary, or musical theatre pit orchestra, and musical theatre training for voice and/or acting.

Matt was very patient with my grand-daughter. This was her 1st time having lessons and she seems pretty excited from the lesson.
