Private Saxophone Teacher

As an accomplished professional musician and teacher, I understand the musical journey. I have been teaching students ranging in ages from 7 to 91(!) for many years, from beginners to professionals. and tailor my lessons to each individual. I believe it is about the journey and enjoying the process. I include context in my teaching, giving a more holistic approach to art and music. I believe the study of music will enrich your life in many ways and that music can become a friend for life.

About Robert

After all these years of playing and thousands of gigs In many genres, I still remember why I started playing in the first place. The excitement and joy of playing and exploring music should last and I strive to impart that in lessons. Of course, you need to know how to work the machine and I teach

I'm in 8th Grade and have been taking saxophone lessons with Bob for a year. He is friendly, patient, helpful and makes the lessons fun! I enjoy taking lessons with him because he's not too pushy but still challenges me enough to help me improve my skills. I would highly recommend him as a teacher!
Laurel
Take lessons from Bob Campbell! Do it and you'll be rewarded with a fun, productive, and inspired musical experience that will enrich your life. Seriously. I've studied with Bob for several years and he is a creative and passionate teacher who can show you how to make the simplest exercises musical and interesting, while making more challenging pieces a pleasure to learn.

Bob is a talented, accomplished performer who shares his in-depth professional experience and broad knowledge of music history and culture to educate and motivate. During lessons, Bob has been known to relay stories from classical-era musicians’ lives, play passages from 1930s to current jazz musicians, and impart lessons from his own performance experiences. I'm so often amazed that he has yet another fascinating example or story to illuminate a topic and provide new understanding of a concept.

Bob is a learner-centric teacher who provides creative, deliberate plans and steps to move forward, but will change course if needed to enhance success. Since I started the saxophone later in life, he often mentions the “unique strengths of adult learners” and relates adult life-knowledge to learning musical concepts. Additionally, I have long struggled with confidence in music-making and Bob has come up with creative solutions to help me overcome my own “getting in the way” of music making while keeping me on task. Along the way he has been understanding, kind, and supremely patient while working through this challenge with me.

Bob brings a keen intellect, good sense of humor, and a relaxed and fun teaching style to his lessons. I feel fortunate to have an expert and steadfast guide who encourages me to explore and have fun with music while helping me gain knowledge and skills. Do yourself a favor and call Bob to guide you on your own musical journey.
Jon
I’ve been taking tenor sax lessons with Bob for over 5 years. When I started taking lessons with him, I couldn’t play at all, but I’ve made great progress and Bob has been instrumental (sorry!) in my improvement. In fact, I got good enough to play "Unforgettable" during the service at my daughter’s wedding and everyone both enjoyed it and thought it was quite meaningful. Bob is professional, motivating and friendly and I’ve truly enjoyed working with him. I would very highly recommend Bob to anyone of any age who is interested in lessons on a woodwind instrument.

I am so excited that I found Lisa. As a senior student returning to clarinet after 46 years, I wanted to makes sure that I start with the basics so that I don't get into any bad habits. Everything Lisa covered and suggested in my first lesson was on point with everything I've been reading. I am confident that I found the right teacher at the right time.

Liza has been a wonderful teacher for my fifth grade daughter. Izzie is inspired to practice while away with encouragement from Liza’s instructions!

I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

Paul makes learning fun and he’s very good at what he does!!!

Online Saxophone Teacher

Private one-on-one saxophone instruction has been my primary vocation for nearly 30 years. I've also worked as a professional performing musician for over 35 years. Each lesson is tailored to the tastes and needs of the student, with traditional method books rarely used once the basics are under control. Instruction is based on a strong working knowledge of scales. The informed use of these scales leads to a heightened understanding of improvisation, ear training, and other practical aspects of music theory. Students are encouraged to choose from a variety of jazz standards and transcriptions, classical themes, and pop tunes that I’ve transcribed and engraved. Rudimentary instruction is also available for saxophonists wishing to learn flute and/or clarinet.

I started giving saxophone lessons nearly 30 years ago when I began to realize how little I was taught about the way music works in the real world. Despite studying Music Performance at Illinois State University, my most meaningful education has been earned through mistakes I've made, or through tr
