I love passing on what I've learned while I've been at school! While I might be young, I have taken lessons with the great jazz saxophonist and arranger Charles "Chip" McNeill and the world renowned classical saxophone teacher and performer Debra Richtmeyer so I hope to pass down the love of the instrument that they've instilled in me. I'll cover the basics of the saxophone, as well as clarinet and flute if interested, and some great exercises and methods that my teachers have me do in order to improve. But in the end, I'll let the student decide what they want to learn. I'm open to many music styles and will try to lead each student in the right direction.

About Adam

Hello future students! My name is Adam and I am a recent graduate of the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign with a bachelors degree in Jazz Saxophone. While I might be young, I do have teaching experience with middle school band. I hope to pass on what I've learned from my teachers, Charles

"Dr. Stow was knowledgable in all aspects of the saxophone. As an undergrad there were struggles that all students go through, but Dr. Stow had exemplary answers whenever I needed them. He was an extremely relatable professor and always had several solutions to any playing inquiries I had. I would reccommend him as a private instructor."

"Kareem is a dedicated and diligent musician and teacher. He is able to share his love of music with students of all ages. Not only is he extremely capable of teaching students the technical aspects of music, but his lessons incorporate a wider perspective as well, such as, listening to different genres of music and asking his students to discuss what they hear. He is always positive and encourages students to do their best. He has style and class and it is a privilege that two of my children can study under his tutelage."

"Seth is a good dude. I came across his profile with Take Lessons a month ago, after browsing through other instructors in my area and other schools in my area. He's got the experience and knowledge, so I connected with him for an initial lesson. It was a quick one to get introductions out of the way and a good idea of goals/direction. From there we further honed our plans for my instruction in an hour lesson and are directing our sights on my upcoming auditions. Seth has shown me through simple explanations of theory that his teaching style is very approachable, and additionally, was able to show me good technical skills on working my way around the horn, which is especially useful for someone like me in my twenties who already has a few bad habits (haha). Like I said, he's a good dude, good sense of humor so I feel at ease practicing with him and his knowledge is insane! Not only for saxophone but in so many other areas of music! You'd be doing yourself a favor to take at least an hour lesson from him and see how you go."
