Lesson Details

Saxophone

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I would very much like the opportunity to share my 40 + professional years of accumulated knowledge and experience with music students of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds. I teach all saxophones, flute, & clarinet lessons specializing in all genres of music.

I teach using an approach focusing on confidence and control, personal solo voice and style development, and versatility and ensemble skills. I also help with ear training, harmonic knowledge, rhythmic accuracy, tone development, and all nuances of musicality.

I design a specific lesson program to address each unique student’s weaknesses and strengths, as well as honing in on the student’s individual musical goals and interests. Written materials will be used, as well as specific question/answer and demonstration/explanation techniques. I don’t force my own style on any student! My goal as the teacher is to help the student find their own personal voice and to help them get ready to embark on their own personal music journey in the real world! I also introduce and nurture the student's development and understanding of traditional techniques used for mastering all of the aforementioned musical styles.

The written study materials used are not provided for free and must be purchased at the student’s expense. I suggest certain books to work out of, but I can work with the student using the materials that they are presently practicing with or want to work out of.
