Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
It is my primary objective to figure out how each of my students learns best. Then I customize their lessons so they get the most out of each session.

My students are always challenged, and I make it a priority to find interesting and fun material to work on.

Learning an instrument should be enjoyable, and there are many times the instrument can seem “too hard”. It is in these rare instances that I have been able to save my students from throwing in the towel. I find another way to teach the material that they will enjoy

Teaching since:

Hello my name is Nick! I am so excited to get started working on the saxophone with you.

I make it a priority to find out how you learn best. Knowing this helps me customize the delivery of instruction so that you will get the most out of each lesson!

I have also been a professional instrument repair technician for the last 5 years. Knowing how instruments work, and seeing common damage on student instruments has given me a special understanding for limitations of each instrument, and unique methods of circumventing these obstacles!
