I teach to students needs and ability. We make goals and work on material that will help us reach those goals.

We will focus on scales, etudes and duets, tone production and understanding music theory and how to read music. We will also use popular songs as a way to learn. Why spend time playing something you don't love?

About Tina R.

There is nothing I love more than helping my students become the musician they want to become! I feel that Music is the perfect medium and discipline to help grow a persons intellect and character and self confidence. I place high value establishing a close rapport with my students to ensure the best possible experience. Music is magic and it is my goal to give each student the tools they need to make the music from in their soul.

As a musicians musician and performer I am well versed in many genera's and styles of music. Classically trained, I crossed the tracks to study jazz and improvisation. Along the way I have played in Salsa Bands, Big Bands, Chamber Ensembles, Jazz Combo's, Wedding bands, Brazilian Bands, Indie Rock Bands, Rock Bands, and even a Circus Band! I am a composer and arranger and love to write music specific to the ensembles I work with and for my students alike.

I am a professional musician and hold a Masters Degree in Saxophone Performance. I have been teaching private instructions in classical and jazz studies for 19 years.
