I have been playing the alto saxophone going on 9 years now. To get this off the bat so you can scroll if this isn't what you're looking for, my prices are not high because I am in college so I am not a major professional. But I can definitely teach beginners and anyone who has just started intermediate.

I taught high school and middle school students how to play and I have a huge variety of pieces in my folders from over the years. I have been taught by four instructors, including Craig Yancey (saxophone) and Douglas McKenna (trumpet).

I will work on your strengths personally and I'm very friendly and polite. I'm just starting this out so this will be a learning experience for me as well. You would need your own instrument, I do not have an extra. If you're ok with all this then please try me out I will be happy to help anyone getting started, prior music experience is not needed.

My experience:
I have been a section leader in concert bands and marching bands. I have been in multiple jazz ensembles, musical pit ensembles, and pep bands at games including Lake Elsinore Storm, the "Menifee Bowl", and high school basketball and football games. I also have had several solos in concert pieces.
