I have been teaching privately and in colleges/schools for over 15 years. For all levels, I will help you develop excellent technique on the saxophone and build a strong foundation in music theory. For advanced/intermediate students, I also teach jazz improvisation, if you’re interested! Please bring in the music and songs you want to work on. I believe lessons should be fun and interesting while you learn great stuff, too!

About Dan

Hi, I’m a professional tenor and soprano saxophonist. I graduated from William Paterson University with a Bachelors in Jazz Performance. I also have an MA in Jazz History and Research from Rutgers University. I enjoy helping students to develop improved technique, sight reading, and musicality.

I've been receiving instruction from Dan for almost a month, and I'm very impressed with my progression. Dan is a very patient, friendly and knowledgeable teacher who cares about my progress and success as a musician. I’ve seen improvement in my embouchure, increased my sight reading speed, and my intonation. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in improving their ability to play the saxophone.

Before I engaged Dan Faulk as a teacher, I knew of him as one of the preeminent voices on the tenor saxophone. I had seen him in performance several times and heard him on recordings. I reached out to him for lessons because I knew that he was a great player who could likely help me achieve my goal of becoming a musician able to improvise in the jazz idiom. What I did not know until my first encounter with him was how easy it would be to work with Dan. By that, I in no way mean to suggest that he is a pushover or that my lessons were not serious, rigorous or challenging. What I mean is that Dan is the rare instructor who has the ability to help you stay focused and positive while at the same time challenging you in a disciplined and nurturing way. With his guidance, I certainly became a better musician in every respect.

One of the most important things about my time with Dan is that fact that he used a pedagogical framework that clearly conveyed for me at the outset the work necessary for me to become an effective improvising musician. Dan is extremely knowledgeable about the inner workings and alternative underlying theories of jazz improvisation because he has played with and studied with many of the luminaries of jazz, and he knows how to structure and present this information. With his vast knowledge and desire to facilitate my musical growth, Dan kept me on task during our twice a month sessions and was always available in between sessions for any questions I might have had.

In short, I am very happy that I reached to Dan for lessons as he is a wonderful and enthusiastic teacher.

"I just took my first saxophone lesson and it wouldn't be better! Michael is very enthusiast and knowledgable, he guided me through the basic steps of playing sax. He made me feel confortable and confident, which is very important when somebody starts to do any new activity. I am looking forward to my second class and I know it will be a blast. Great guy Michael is."

"Kareem has been teaching me since I was in the fourth grade. I am currently in 8th grade, and man what can I say, he's as good as it gets! After two years I was in my middle school jazz band, which is not easy for a person who has only been playing for two years. You, yourself will be able to see extreme progress within just a few lessons! You must know Kareem teaches at Pierce College, a class at the Tacoma School of the Arts (which I hopefully will be attending and taking his class), teaches numerous private students every week, and lastly he performs with a stellar jazz band of his own! He is extremely dedicated to the musical field. If I were anybody reading this review and wanted to start playing any of the variety of instruments he plays, I would call Kareem K.!

"Playing the sax has been my life-long dream. I remember how once, while watching online tutorials on YouTube, I came across one from Nick, in which he was showing how to play scales – in a very simple way. My gut feeling told me to reach out and communicate exactly with him. He then responded, advised me what instrument to choose, and we started training, which I not in the least regret. I am having classes with Nick online, which may seem a bit more complicated than face-to-face. However, I’m satisfied with the results and, especially, with the teacher’s approach. I am keen on his punctuality, professionalism, advice and recommendations. What’s more, he’s always willing to respond and counsel even beyond the planned lesson. I call him ‘my saxophone guru’! I wish him creative wins and new accomplishments. An absolutely outstanding teacher, that’s who he is! I will be his student as long as time allows. And the wish is there always. Thank you, Nick!"
