Mr. Ronnie W. is native from Dallas, Texas. Mr. W attended Dallas Lincoln Humanities / Communications Magnet High School. As a student of music growing up he was taught how to play the saxophone during his 7th grade year. Mr. W. started to flourish on the instrument and was quickly moved from Beginning Band to Advanced Band. Mr. W. continued to play Saxophone all through High School. As a Senior in High School he was honored with several different scholarship opportunities to attend the college of his choice. Mr. W. chose Grambling State University where he participated in several different bands and organizations. In 2004 I created a group in honor of Grover Washington, Jr., which is named after his Grammy Award winning album "Winelight Jazz". Throughout his career Mr. W. has been instrumental in helping students to make it to the State Music Festivals. Background Check has been done through Texas Teacher Background and is available upon request.

Ronnie was great, I am looking forward to work with him again. I have not played my saxophone in a very long time and he has helped me to develop my sound and techniques.

Thanks Ronnie you are the BEST!!!

Mr. Ronnie has been the most caring, patient instructor for my son. Brennen looks forward to every lesson and enjoys his time learning. Being only 10 years old, I was concerned that he would not have the attention span for lessons and end up giving up before he really had the chance to learn. This has not been the case with Mr. Ronnie as he has kept my sons attention during each lesson and helped him learn something new in each lesson where Brennen looks forward to what he is going to learn at his next lesson. If you want someone who is going to take a genuine interest in your child then Mr. Ronnie is the right person for you.

Mr Walker was very helpful in teaching me the fundamentals of playing saxophone. I didn't know anything and he helped me with reading, music theory and jazz improvisation. I am a better musician because of his expertise.
