I've been making a living primarily off my ears for a decade! Being a freelance saxophonist most professional gigs I take I have to learn everything by ear, and be expected to roll with the changes on stage as I hear them.
Now I don't have perfect pitch, far from it! But with my approach to ear training and musical theory you can shape your ear into a powerful instrument to help you know exactly where you are and what you're hearing, and what you're going to hear! With just a little dedication and practice you too can have control over your ears. So lets get started today!

About Phillip M.

Since 2011 I've been a full-time professional saxophonist, composer, and studio musician based out of New Orleans. Since moving to the city I've played literally thousands of gigs with dozens of bands ranging from Swamp Pop and Funk to Jazz and Blues, and have toured both the East and West coasts. I've written full albums for bands and have recorded on dozens of albums both local and international.
I studied Instrumental Performance at the Lionel Hampton School of Music and have only expanded on the structure and mastery I gained in University to become an exceptional saxophonists, performer, and teacher.
When you study with me we can cover a variety of topics, but I like to cater my lessons to your skill level and, most importantly your goals. If you want to master the saxophone we can do that. If you want to improve your tone and dexterity we can do that! If you want to understand musical theory on a deeper level lets get to work! If you want to become a better improvisor and quickly learn new music we can definitely do that!
I want you to get what you want out of these lessons, and I want you to understand how to practice efficiently to maximize what you're getting from each session. So send me a message, tell me what you want to learn or improve, and let's get to it!
