Overview

Berklee alumni. BM in Saxophone Performance. I (Seba Molnar) have had the opportunity to study with world-renowned saxophonists George Garzone, Bill Pierce, Tia Fuller. I have been gigging on saxophone and clarinet for over 10 years. I Regularly play in Boston and around the east cost in a number of bands. I teach beginner to advanced students, and am comfortable in a variety of styles ranging from jazz and funk to classical. Core elements of my curriculum focus on learning songs, harmony, ear training, sight reading as well as instrumental technique and skills. Music is about having fun and expressing ones self in a creative way. It is my goal to help my students understand the fundamentals of music so that they can not only enjoy the music they make but have confidence in them selves and their music.

EXELLENT musician teacher. He explains everything with ease to my son. I have notice the improvement. Definetly a great choise of a teacher to whoever wants to improve or exceed his/her game in saxophone techniques and performance.

Seba is the Best!!! He is an absolute gentleman and knows everything about music! He could give in depth answers to any questions I have. Not only is his knowledge never ending, but he sure can play a mean sax! Take lessons with Seba you will not be disappointed!!

Sebastian has been my theory teacher for the past three years and I couldn't be more pleased with who I picked to learn from. He's extremely humble, patient (that's a big one), and knowledgeable on every subject. I have never brought him a question he didn't know the answer to, that he couldn't explain in a way I understood! Music theory has always been an problem for me until now and I'm so pumped, I'm even more pumped on how fast I've been progressing. I highly recommend this teacher to others hands down!!! My little cousin has him for saxophone lessons and has already improved so much and loves Seba. Can't stress it enough - great teacher!
