I offer 24 years of experience playing, and 17 years teaching privately and as a public school band director. My curriculum focuses on technique, theory, style, and interpretation.

To develop quality saxophone technique, an emphasis on posture, breath support, embouchure, tone quality, intonation, articulation, and fingering is incorporated in each portion of a given lesson.

The importance of theory and scales is outlined and taught with each lesson. A challenging scale assignment to improve technical ability and music theory knowledge directly correlated to the assigned repertoire will help students understand the structure of the music they are practicing.

Saxophone students dedicate practice time to classical repertoire that includes both lyrical and technical challenges. Demonstrating the highest level of performance and knowledge of a piece is the desired result. A portion of each lesson is dedicated to students learning the style of jazz, a staple for the saxophone. Students

Erick B.

I've studied piano extensively for over 20 years and have successfully taught children and adults how to enjoy making music and develop their artistic side. My students quickly find they possess the inherent skills and critical thinking to learn, observe/self-correct, and succeed as young musicians from any starting point. Since every student has a different learning style, I make sure to include repertoire and curriculum that will make learning this musical language a fun journey.

If requested, lessons can include music notation, rhythms, technique and fundamental theory.

About Erick

*** Lesson Details *** I have 17 years of music teaching experience and I have learned how to explain what seems "complicated" in the most effective and simple manner. My philosophy is that music must make us happy. We have to enjoy the process of learning, practicing, and performing music. We ha

I individualize each students instruction. I keep in mind the students and parents goals and schedule when I make this plan.

About Harry

I started playing clarinet in the school band at age six. My father was a musician, and he thought that playing in the school band would help me overcome my extreme shyness. I remember my first music lesson. I really liked my teacher. He came to my house, and he helped me to care for my clarine

Harry helped my daughter polish up some pieces for an audition. She was nervous and didn't feel fully prepared. Three visits from Harry gave her some great instruction and the confidence to go in and nail her audition!
Tracy L.
My son has had three lessons so far, and we have been very impressed. Mr. Grainger does a great job of encouraging my son through positive feedback, making lessons fun, and giving him very specific, targeted feedback to improve his playing. He has been very flexible and responsive to our changing needs. I highly recommend him.

NEW Student Covid-19 Discount
First Lesson FREE with a package of 4 or more.

In each lesson, I will identify immediate issues then put you on a weekly regimen to move you toward vocal balance.

I use Gary Catona’s Vocal Building technique to improve your muscular strength. After that, I will use a two-fold system of vowels (Catona) and consonant-vowel speaking combinations (Bauer) to balance your voice by training the articulators to work in tandem with your vowel placement enhancing your natural sound, support and create balanced breath pressure.

Specific to learning the Catona Method:
This is an intensive vocal work out learning the fundamentals of Gary Catona’s Vocal Building method. We will cover all mouth positions and how to execute each exercise properly. It usually takes two 1 hour lessons to get a grasp on the Basics.

*Please note I do not have to teach you the Catona method, but I highly recommend trying it.*

Each lesson is recorded (mp3) and emailed so you ...

"I have been taking online trumpet lessons with Vinnie for years now. I have also studied in person with Vinnie, and played in Vinnie's band. I feel so lucky to be able to take lessons from one of the best trumpet players in the world. Vinnie has helped me progress in many areas including jazz improvisation. Vinnie has a warm personality and is very patient. In my 50 years of playing trumpet, Vinnie is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Vinnie plays so well, and performs in so many places all over the world, I can't even begin to describe his personal talent. However, on a personal level, he is easy to relate to and study with.
