Writing songs is SO MUCH EASIER than you think. Wanna learn?
There are only 12 notes (pitches) in equal temperament tuning that we use in Western music. AND only 7 letters. It's all the same. Wanna learn how to navigate it?
About Schroeder S.

" There's a difference between playing the notes and making the Music. Wanna know the difference? "I've been a professional musician and teacher for over 35 years. I have a degree from the University of Minnesota and I studied music at the University of St. Thomas when I was in high school. I've performed and recorded with numerous artist including The Temptations, Peter Noone (Herman's Hermits), Bobby Z, Billy McLaughin, Presidential Inauguration 2005, The Shirelles, Martha Reeves, Larry King, The Guess Who, Quiet Riot, Loverboy, J. Hoye and many more. I received the Certificate of Achievement from Billboard Magazine for production and songwriting, etc.,etc. enough about me though. *** Lesson Details *** Every student is different so I like to base lessons for each student upon their strengths and weaknesses. Some students are just beginning, others want to improve upon their skills. Some students want to learn more about Classical music, others want to learn jazz and improvisation, others rock and roll or country et. al.. Others want to know how music works-the theory

My first lesson with Schroeder was a marvelous experience. Amazing enthusiasm he brings to the table. I recommend him to anyone who is beginning or is seeking to move up on the instrument. Can't wait for the next lesson.

Schroeder has done an excellent job teaching my son to play the saxophone. He makes the lessons fun and connects the learning to applicable examples that make sense to my child.
