Music is a special journey, one that I can't wait to share with you! I've been studying and playing saxophone with some of the best musicians in the country for the past 15 years. I believe in the importance of constructing a strong musical foundation, built on fundamental techniques crucial to self improvement for years to come, while nurturing and promoting a creative process within each student. I will help you to explore the musical possibilities within you!

About Nigel Y.

Music is my work, music is my hobby, music is my life! I've been playing the saxophone from the time I was in Elementary school. Introduced through my saxophone playing father, I was hooked on music from an early age. I have studied with some of the leading figures in music education and music performance of the past century, names such as Lanny Morgan, Jason Moran, Donny McCasslin and Jerry Bergonzi to name a few. I received a Bachelors degree in jazz saxophone from California State University Northridge and a Masters degree in jazz saxophone form New England Conservatory. Currently residing in Boston, Ma I am an active performer and teacher in all genres of music, teaching and playing not only saxophone but also clarinet, flute, and piano. I would love to be your teacher and share with you the gift of music!
