Stephanie M.

Boston, MA

Each lesson includes studies of fundamental techniques, ear training, and music history in order to facilitate the development of a whole musician.

About Stephanie

Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Stephanie, I am a teaching-artist from El Paso, Texas. I currently reside, perform and teach in the Boston and greater Boston area.

I am a recent graduate of The New England Conservatory of Music with my Masters in Saxophone Performance. I received my Bacherlors in Music Education from New Mexico State University.

“A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator. As a working artist is they are involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refineme
nt of skills in their discipline. As a working educator, it is essential that the artist is also developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education. Achieving a meaningful balance between these two professions, whereby one feeds the other, is an ongoing process that requires a deepening awareness for the teaching artist of what their teaching brings to their art and what their art teaches them about learning.”

I am devoted and dedicated to helping find each of my students strengths, weaknesses and style of learning. Once I have identified these traits, I am able to develop lessons and repertoire that helps each students become the most efficient learner and best musician they can be.

I pride myself in creating a fun and safe learning environment in which I establish a firm musical foundation for my students. Lessons include: scales, etudes, articulation, dynamic and sight reading exercises, standard saxophone repertoire, recording and analyzing performances, saxophone/music history lessons, and exploration of the sounds, genres and artists of the saxophone.

Simultaneously, my students cultivate many other skills while learning how to play saxophone. Students enhance their fine motor skills and ability to memorize, students increase their overall self-confidence and become self-sufficient and creative problem solvers. I am passionate about educating and empowering my students and I enjoy connecting with a wide array of musicians of all ages, playing levels and backgrounds.

Feel free to contact me to inquire about lessons, I hope to hear from you soon!

Stephanie

She is patient and tries to find new and creative ways to improve learning. She doesnt just teach to simply learn just enough to play an instrument but rather to master not only the instrument but the whole philosophy and theory around music as well..Simply put her teaching style is that of attending a music college but much much less spent and more one on one instruction

I went to New England Conservatory with Stephanie, and I have to say that she is one of the most supportive colleges I have ever met. She is extremely dedicated to her students, even to the point that even in social settings she will be texting her students words of encouragement and asking about their progress. She has an incredible work ethic and an infectiously positive attitude.

Sebastian M.

Allston, MA

I have been playing sax/clarinet for over 10 years. I regularly gig in the Boston area with a variety of bands ranging from Jazz, Funk, Hip-hop to Classical. I am finishing up my degree at the Berklee in sax performance with a concentration in Jazz. I like to find what inspires my students and build the curriculum around that. I think a healthy balance of theory and harmony is important while at the same time not forgetting about playing music, because lets face it, that's what its all about!

About Sebastian

Berklee alumni. BM in Saxophone Performance. I (Seba Molnar) have had the opportunity to study with world-renowned saxophonists George Garzone, Bill Pierce, Tia Fuller. I have been gigging on saxophone and clarinet for over 10 years. I Regularly play in Boston and around the east cost in a number of bands. I teach beginner to advanced students, and am comfortable in a variety of styles ranging from jazz and funk to classical. Core elements of my curriculum focus on learning songs, harmony, ear training, sight reading as well as instrumental technique and skills. Music is about having fun
and expressing ones self in a creative way. It is my goal to help my students understand the fundamentals of music so that they can not only enjoy the music they make but have confidence in them selves and their music.

Seba is the Best!!! He is an absolute gentleman and knows everything about music! He could give in depth answers to any questions I have. Not only is his knowledge never ending, but he sure can play a mean sax! Take lessons with Seba you will not be disappointed!!

Sebastian has been my theory teacher for the past three years and I couldn't be more pleased with who I picked to learn from. He's extremely humble, patient (that's a big one), and knowledgeable on every subject. I have never brought him a question he didn't know the answer to, that he couldn't explain in a way I understood! Music theory has always been an problem for me until now and I'm so pumped, I'm even more pumped on how fast I've been progressing. I highly recommend this teacher to others hands down!!! My little cousin has him for saxophone lessons and has already improved so much and loves Seba. Can't stress it enough - great teacher!

I'm an accomplished jazz, pop and classical saxophonist with experience in professional performance and in teaching students at various levels of ability. I mold my teaching to my students' stylistic preferences and academic/career aspirations, and excel at helping students become more comfortable with and more skilled at jazz improvisation.

About Timothy

I'm a multi-instrumentalist finishing a music education degree at Berklee College of Music. I have experience performing, composing, and/or recording on the genres of classical, jazz, Latin, rock and pop music, and I have extensive knowledge of jazz and classical music theory. I take great pride and pleasure in helping my students realize their innate musical abilities and in providing the structure and knowledge to allow them to expand those abilities in whatever direction their passion dictates.

Alexander H.

Brighton, MA

I give my students a good foundation in solid and beautiful sound production. I encourage ear training and solo transcription to help students internalize what it means to play a saxophone solo and to play with a band. I help students learn to learn. I teach the techniques necessary to take control of their own playing and bring it to the next level. I work with any books or topics or pieces that you are using for any other school or outside music activities, and go from there.

About Alexander

I have been teaching and playing music professionally for a little over 5 years. I have performed a variety of genres from Indy, Pop, Latin Jazz, Avant-garde, Jazz, blues and rock to classical styles in Chicago, New York, Dallas, Tokyo, Seoul, and Bangkok. I graduated cum laude from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music before moving to Korea and then Thailand to teach and play music and to teach English, Literature, and ESL classes in a variety of schools. I taught music to students in middle school and high school at the International Pioneers School in Bangko
k, Thailand before relocating to Boston in late 2015. I approach music with a goal of creating a solid Aural foundation so that students can explore and enjoy any styles that they seek to master. I mix in a variety of schools of teaching, with a heavy improvisational anchor and ear training.

Here's What to Know Before Buying an Instrument

Thinking about buying a new instrument?
