Private Saxophone Teacher

As a private instructor, I genuinely encourage efficient practice, solid technique and good tone quality, as well as an appreciation for music. I also incorporate the study of music theory and the study of music fundamentals in my lessons. I have experience teaching the genres of classical, jazz, modern, folk, and pop music and hope to extend the joy of learning music to my students as well as help them grow and gain confidence in order to bring on-going fulfillment to their musical experience.

It was an honor and a pleasure working with Gwen. Due to personal circumstances, I had to stop working with her, but I highly recommend her as an instructor. She's very knowledgeable, accommodating, and made me feel comfortable. You'll find yourself in good hands with her.

Kareem is superb. Under his tutelage I am certain I will advance quickly from my current skill set. I'm more convinced than ever that I can become a real musician. His assignments require the commitment that I am willing to invest. I hope I will live up to his expectations.

My granddaughter is 6 years old and this is her first professional piano teacher. Kareem is ensuring that she has the basics down before she continues. She enjoys the lessons, and is excited when lesson day comes.

Soren has been an amazing music teacher to our 10 year old son who just took up beginning band in 4th grade and wanted to learn the saxophone. Our son always enjoys his lessons with Soren even when it’s at the end of a Monday evening; Soren gives our son a good balance of challenge and has an easy going style which has helped our boy enjoy his lessons while learning a lot.

Chelsea did a great job at our first lesson! She was patient and encouraging. She gave my daughter good suggestions on how she could improve and things to try in areas she was struggling. My daughter felt so much better after the lesson. We will continue to take lessons with Chelsea

We sent music to Chelsea in advance and she was able to help my son with the difficult parts of his music. The time was well spent and she explained things well. We look forward to our next lesson and working with her over the next month to help him catch up.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I am comfortable teaching beginner to advanced level students (classical). I'm a collegiate level 3rd year player and understand and can play the most difficult of music for classical saxophone. In lessons, I go at the students pace. I ask questions and actively involve the student so they understand what they are learning. I will cover anything they want to learn, but if they do not care or know what to learn, I shall come up with a specific lesson plan for each individual.

About Braydon

"We switched my son from clarinet to saxophone in the middle of the school year and hired Matt to help get him caught up with his bandmates. Matt relates very well to an 11 year-old boy, and although he was serious and got to work immediately, he put Josh at ease from the start. I was initially worried that a 90 minute lesson would push the limits of my son's endurance, but he has really enjoyed the sessions, and the longer time has been very beneficial. Overall a 100% positive experience"

"When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him."

"About a year ago, our teenage son began alto sax lessons with Ian. His previous experience was less than a year in middle school band and he needed more individualized instruction. My son has come such a long way! Ian has a comprehensive program that includes technique, reading and interpreting music, history and different styles of artists, etc.. Ian is energetic, enthusiastic, patient, and clearly loves music. His involvement in the teaching and professional jazz community is such an asset."
