So far, I've loved all of my classes with Sergio. His teaching style with photography fits my needs perfectly.

I like Sergio because he is very laid back and super funny. He fits incredibly well with my learning style and pace and I always enjoy our lessons. I was immediately able to pick up things I had previously struggled with upon taking his classes and have really enjoyed myself. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Sergio to anyone looking to start playing saxophone.

I just finished my first sax lesson with Sergio and already know my way around the frets. I appreciated that we also tied in useful information about the circle of fifths. Great teacher. Highly recommended.

Sergio is very nice and my 6 year old likes him. He works great with my son and takes time to explain things and then makes sure my son understands before moving. So far so good! My son is excited to work more with Sergio!

We had our first lesson with Sergio a week ago Sunday and so far its been great. Sergio has a great personality and had my son smiling through the entire lesson. After the lesson Matthew felt a boost of self confidence that lasted all day and he cant wait until his next lesson.

Sergio provided a good understanding and application for my first saxophone lesson. I had no knowledge of playing the instrument. He showed my how to create sound right off the bat. He had a good attitude with me, being very relax and patient. Nice time with him. Eddie.

Segio is patient and willing to accommodate my individual needs. His lessons are helpful in understanding the fundamentals, but still manages to make it fun by tying in songs that I like.

I forgot how to play my Saxophone but he helped remember all the basics and a few songs all in one lesson.

We just had our first lesson with Sergio and it couldn't of gone better. My son was nervous at first but ended the first lesson feeling excited and eager to learn. I would highly recommend Sergio!

I just had a lesson with Sergio, and he seems like a good instructor. I learned some helpful things (I'm a complete beginner and was having trouble even just making a consistent sound with the saxophone). For instance, I learned how far the mouthpiece should be on the cork, and I learned an interesting breathing exercise for saxophone. I also learned the C Major Scale. My only trouble with the lesson was that my internet isn't very good, so the video (and sometimes the audio) cut in and out at times. But as for Sergio himself, I would recommend him for learning the saxophone. He seems like he knows what he's doing, and he is kind in his instruction.

This is our first session, Sergi did a great job in understanding student’s current state in music and tailored his approach. He gave Vocal tips to try offline. Overall, a fun learning session.

So glad that we found Sergio! Sergio has been teaching my oldest Son saxophone for a while now. My younger Son recently found interest in the recorder and had his first lesson with Sergio today. Sergio was great with him and made sure to find music that he is interested in. I highly recommend Sergio for any kid!

My Son started with Sergio almost a year now. The music teacher in his school moved him to play with the fifth grade class, however he is a fourth grader. I received a great report about his music performance from school. Sergio is a wonderful music teacher, who is able to make the lesson full of energy and joy. I strongly recommend him for any student who wants to achieve great progress in Sax in no time.

Sergio was quick to answer questions and was very easy to work with. Great personality and has a wide knowledge on music theory.

I know it's too early to write a review after the first lesson. However, I was surprised by the wonderful way Sergio handled the time and the introduction for such a hard instrument like the alto sax.
My son Moneer is so excited to continue learning how to play alto sax with Sergio. In short Sergio is a very talented music instructor!
