Lesson Details

Saxophone

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I believe in teaching with honesty and integrity. In the past, I have learned under private teachers who did not care about teaching the saxophone properly and seriously which led to awful habits and horrible embouchure. The lessons will not only provide accurate information about the saxophone and proper playing techniques, but it will be circled around what you need as a musician. Although you not become a professional musician, it is still essential that any students deserve the best!

Teaching since:
2015

Hello my name is Yuh-Boh, I recently graduated from Sacramento State University with a degree in Music Performance in Saxophone and received my Masters in New England Conservatory. I have been playing the saxophone since elementary school and performed many recitals over the years. It is important to note that I am trained mostly in the classical field and do not play too much jazz, though the basics are very much the same and I would not mind helping out.

Decided to perform Yakety Sax for Grandparents for our last lesson. I have best wishes for him in his future endeavors. Farewell!!!
That's me on the right. I would love to show the Bass Sax I was holding, but I did not want to leave out beautiful faces.
