Every student is different so I like to base lessons for each student upon their strengths and weaknesses. Some students are just

beginning, others want to improve upon their skills. Some students want to learn more about Classical music, others want to learn jazz and improvisation, others rock and roll or country et. al.. Others want to know how music works-the theory

My goal in teaching is to make my students not just good saxophonists, but better musicians in every aspect. I like to discuss the music with students, get them to think about the music in new and interesting ways, teach how to practice and philosophies for approaching musical styles, and the theory behind the music. Students can expect all of this and more while having fun and being able to express themselves through the music they want to play.

Students are expected to have their own saxophone for all lessons.

About Eddie

Hello there, I'm Eddie! Music, since the first time I picked up the saxophone, has been the passion of my life. I almost always have an instrument in my hands or have music coming out of my speakers. I earned my degree in performance from the University of Miami in 2012. As part of my undergraduate studies, I became proficient in all saxophones including alto, tenor, soprano and bari. In addition to that, I have also become well versed in the piano, guitar, flute, and clarinet. I have been teaching privately since 2013. Music is my passion and I want to bring this same passion to any student I teach.

I figure out exactly where you are in your technique and knowledge of music and of the instrument. Then, I start teaching from there! For me, the goal of lessons should be the goal of the student, and I do my best to honor that!

I also encourage my advanced Jr. High and High School students to audition for various honor groups throughout California such as SCSBOA, CBDA, etc. With my background in these groups, I can effectively help my students prepare for the best audition they can do.

About Eric

Hi! I'm Eric, a Saxophonist, Woodwind-Player, Composer, Singer, and Teacher that was born and raised in Southern California. I've been playing the saxophone for over ten years now, writing music for as long as I can remember, and singing since I was in elementary school. I play for a variety of groups in Los Angeles, and sometimes perform in L.A. and surrounding areas at venues such as The LightHouse, Saint Rocke, Hotel Café, The Study, Avalon, The Mint, the Baked Potato, and more.

I keep my lessons fun, efficient, and applicable. I give students assignments to work on, not only so they don't forget what we talk about, but also so they can expand upon the concepts given in lessons, (which familiarizes them more with the information). I look forward to helping you unlock your potential!

Private Saxophone Teacher

I have been a saxophonist for 11 years, currently studying as a saxophone student majoring in Music Education & Composition at Kansas State University.

Lessons for saxophone will consist of three main areas:

Technical Work:

No one wants to hear it, but this means scales and patterns! Learning all of the major and minor scales is a great start to learning new music, and will be the first goal for my students. Included in technical work is proper cleaning and care for the instrument, proper breathing, and physical habits such as posture.

Repertoire:

I want you to experience music that is capable of your skill level, exciting, and will help you learn about different styles and history. I have a substantial collection of music that can help you find what you enjoy playing! Along with learning to play new music, you will be learning about the significance of the music we play. Who wrote it? What time period? Why was it written? I am also a composer, so I have original ...

About Joshua

Hello! Are you ready to dive into the musical world of the saxophone!?!

My name is Joshua, a teacher, composer, and performer. I am proficient in saxophone, and competent in flute, clarinet, composition, and piano. My Bachelor of Music degree comes from Kansas State University in the area of Music Composition.

I have a very unique background, coming from the small town of Downs, Kansas. There, I had extensive amounts of experience working with children as a lifeguard, saxophone teacher, and teacher's assistant!

I run my lessons based on what YOU want to learn! We can build the fundamental skills of your instrument while exploring music YOU enjoy! I have played classical, jazz, pep, and modern saxophone, and as a composer I am exposed to many different styles of music.

Music is so much more than notes on a page. It is express

ion, emotion, feeling...
And I understand that as your teacher, it is my job to equip you with the skills needed to fulfill the true music you want to create!

If you have any questions, please contact me!

""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."

"My son is currently taking online lessons with Lucas and we're both quite happy with the experience so far. My son has been playing tenor for 4 years (c
urrently 10th grade- in concert, jazz and marching bands at school) and had only ever taken live lessons before, but we're finding that online works out well. No extra travel time/hassle, which is great since he doesn't drive yet- just log online from our basement. Lucas had good availability and has been open to reschedule as necessary. Lucas has helped him with pieces for honor band auditions so far with specific feedback and even I can hear the difference in my son's playing."
