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.

What kind of music do you like? Have you tried learning music from a method book and just didn't have fun? Over the past 5 years of teaching several instruments I have developed a system of learning songs that YOU love and learn what music is about. With the songs you want to learn, we talk about articulation, intonation, and many exercises to help you become better. We can talk about reed care, instrument care as well!

Brandon is fantastic. I don't know that he's ever given me a word of bad advice, and has been a HUGE help in getting my career as a producer and narrator off the ground. He's incredibly knowledgeable and skillful, and my experiences in both hiring him and learning from him have been absolutely fantastic. I would heartily recommend him!

"After 10 years of inactivity, I decided to jump back into playing the saxophone. I started working with Matt a few weeks ago, and it's really been great. He's very personable and I respond well to his teaching method. In just a few sessions, I'm understanding more jazz theory and am already seeing my technical skills improve. He seems to adapt his style to each student, so if you're looking to learn an instrument or just brush up on a few things, I highly recommend him."

"Our son Charles started taking lessons with Alex Sadnik when he was in 6th grade, and he is now going to be a senior in high school. It was in -home until the pandemic last year. After changing to him, Charles made tremendous progress quickly. Alex is a terrific teacher. He has patience , and is encouraging. He would often spend part of the lesson playing together with him, which was helpful. He would also allow Charles to choose some of the music he was interested in learning.
We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants to learn Saxophone or flute . You won’t be disappointed!!"
