Learn from a born musician. I learned to play the piano when I was a child by ear. I would listen to a song I really liked and pick notes on the piano until it was identical. That skill developed over time helped me learn the saxophone with great ease and musicality.

During grade school, I was selected to be in all-county, all-state, and tri-state competitions for saxophone. I then went on to study music at FSU School of Music. I am a professional saxophone player who loves to help share the appreciation of music with those who have a desire.

In my lessons, you will learn techniques on how to best play the saxophone and read music (sight reading) and learn ear training techniques. We will study some theory and history depending on your level. Students will be expected to perform a selection of pieces in succession for an online concert periodically. We will have fun, but we will make progress. The main thing I want to leave you within your consideration of me as your teacher is ...

Jacob does a really good job teaching saxophone lessons. He is very good with young kids.
Tami W.
Our experience with Take Lessons and more importantly with Jacob the instructor have been very good so far. My 9 year old son is just starting saxophone and based on the two lessons he had with Jacob, they appear to get along well. Jacob appears to be very patient with my young inexperienced saxophone player.

My son was able to play a few notes the first lesson and played Hot Cross Buns the second lesson. Apparently, playing anything that early in training is unusual. So we are very pleased and hope to see the progress continue.
Nikisha S.
Jacob was a great instructor. He was very kind and class time was very productive! He is a very positive teacher and highly recommended!

"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"

""Now that I'm studying with Mike, the efficiency of my practice time is way, way up."

Mike is the first coach who emphasizes "practice the hard parts". So much so that any time a note comes out either not in rhythm, not in pitch, or not a great sound, I have the confidence to stop and repeat the hard part until it's no longer hard. Even when learning to improvise, if the notes I pick on the sax don't match the ones I first heard in my head, I have the confidence to stop and really find those notes that my mind imagined. Eventually I'll be able to hit the ones I intend the first time. He also advocates to always know the purpose of any practicing you're doing---there's no more aimless noodling. Even when I'm jamming, there's a specific goal in mind.

The second thing I really get from Mike is that he expects me to know what notes I'm playing and what role they fill in the key. Formerly my method of improvising was to hunt and peck, occasionally hitting notes outside the key and finding a way to "work them back in". But now, if I'm riffing on the note F in the key of B-flat, Mike wants me to know that that's the 5 of the key. And to also know where the 3 and 7 are---like a home base where you know it's safe to play."

"I am an adult, and have had several teachers, and Julie is the best. She is warm and caring and friendly, with a nice sense of humor, and is also businesslike and focused. The lessons are fun, but you don't waste time. Her knowledge of different instruments and different kinds of music is very impressive. When she gives criticism, it's always constructive and thoughtful. She often gives praise when I do well, and the praise is also thoughtful. She gives good suggestions for practice and for working out a problem within the lesson. She treats me like an individual, and appreciates my musical interests, so doesn't try to make me do the same program as everybody else."
