Solomon here. Wanna play sax well like Kenny G, Dave Koz or Charlie Parker, Let me teach you. I am a versatile, well travelled, actively performing sax instructor & well-rounded musician ( playing 6 instruments professionally). I have performed with various music bands in the US and abroad. Yes, experience counts!
I take pride in distilling relevant music concepts. I focus on showing you how to construct your scales & notes, so you can articulate beautifully. I FILTER OUT boring theories & lack of focus which comes with playing stereotyped "book" music.
I believe your goal is to PICK UP the sax ANYTIME with CONFIDENCE &… JUST PLAY beautifully! My sax lessons are custom-tailored to your learning style. I teach music rudiments & playing jazz .
I enjoy teaching both children & adults of any age. 2 out of 3 students i have worked with, just over the past 3 months, now play in their school/ church bands with great commendations (see reviews). I am also teaching a 56 year old beginner currently.
I understand the challenges upcoming sax players face- momentum, applying music basics, developing clean tone, maintaining rhythm, improvisation - most of which I have MASTERED. So I believe we can work together & help you play familiar tunes within 2-3 weeks. Relax & enjoy your play. Hire me & let's jam!
