Hi! my name is Solomon. I am an experienced multi-instrumentalist and instructor. I have performed and sand with various music bands at concerts, events, parties in the US & abroad. Experience counts! I have the special teaching skill needed for you to learn well and fast.

My lessons are custom-tailored to your learning style. I teach music rudiments & a lot of play-alongs, solo-ing or chords. I believe your goals are to understand and apply music concepts with CONFIDENCE &… JUST PLAY/ SING beautifully!

I enjoy teaching both children & adults of any age. I understand the challenges beginners face- momentum, applying music basics,finger techniques, chords - most of which I have MASTERED. So I believe we can work together & enhance your music theory understanding. Relax, hire me & let's jam!

About Tosin B.

Tosin 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 also taught a 56 year old beginner last year.

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!
