*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

Frankie has been my piano instructor for several years now. He's always on-time, communicates well, and treats my house with respect (my instructions are at home). He's let me learn at my own pace while challenging me to do things the "correct way." And he doesn't mind the occasional side-discussion on music theory or history.

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 and have 1 year of experience teaching. 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. Music is my passion and I want to bring this same passion to any student I teach.

I have been teaching saxophone professionally for 7 years to beginners just starting out, students preparing for college auditions, and adults trying to get back into playing. I am a very passionate musician and person, and find happiness in helping people get better at the saxophone and playing music! I enjoy performing regularly in the Los Angeles and greater Los Angeles areas at venues such as The Hollywood Bowl, and The Blue Whale Jazz Club. If you are looking to make your first sounds on the instrument, or looking to develop the skills to be a masterful performer and improviser, please reach out to me as I would find great joy in helping you accomplish your goals.

About Jordan
On top of being a professional musician and educator, I am a fun, easy-going, and inspirational person. I come from a family of 6 and used to work as a camp counselor in the summers, so working with kids is my strong suit, I really do enjoy it! I have found in my years of teaching a nice balance of making sure my students stay focused while also making sure they are having a pleasant experience during their lessons.

Here is a little bit more about me taken from jordanleicht.com:

"Jordan is a Los Angeles-based saxophonist, composer, and bandleader from Thousand Oaks, CA. He has a number of private students and plays regularly with his group and others in the L.A. area.

I am an experienced saxophonist/bassist and a student at the College of Southern Maryland. While working towards my degree in music, I have found joy and reward in sharing my passion with others. My lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, improvisation, technique, and more. Let's get started!

About Dylan
Music has been my life for as long as I can remember! I played saxophone all through school, participating in Solo & Ensemble, as well as All-County and All-State symphonic bands. As a student at CSM, I enjoy being a part of their Jazz Ensemble "Solid Brass", as well as their Latin Jazz group, "Ritmo Cache." I gig with a jazz combo and I also play bass in a rock band called "With Lying Eyes", playing frequent cover shows on the weekends and sometimes opening for national rock bands in the DMV area. I study saxophone under Randy Runyon at the college, in addition to taking music theory and ear training classes. I'm an experienced player and absolutely love sharing my passion for music with others. I work with people of all ages and help them unlock their potential to creatively express themselves through one of the most fun forms of art!

I teach saxophone with the student's musical interests as my main priority! Whether the student wants to play jazz, classical music, or pop, I work with the student through their favorite songs that they want to learn and teach technique to match their goals. I have experience performing and recording in a wide variety of different settings and genres as well as a background in music theory and composition. I aim to impart these skills to all of my students!

About Thomas
I'm a saxophonist, composer, and arranger with a Bachelor's of music in Jazz Studies from the University of Southern California. I'm also a flautist, clarinetist, and pianist with experience performing in anything from pit orchestras for musicals, electronic pop bands, to Disneyland!

My students can expect to see a great amount of improvement in tone production, embouchure, sight reading, and overall musicality. I usually assess how to teach each student individually based on what genre or kind of music they want to learn! If a student loves a certain recording by any artist, we will listen to it and work through how to learn it and perform it together while laying a solid foundation for great technique.

I've been a saxophonist for more than 10 years and been taught through a combination of formal education at USC, private lesson
s, and performing experience. I have taken lessons with world renowned saxophonists such as Bob Mintzer and Bob Sheppard. I know what it's like to be a student and in my years of teaching experience I have taught students of every level.

I hope to share my love of music with you!
