Paul is a very nice and understanding guy who only got to give our child an introductory lesson.

I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

Paul makes learning fun and he’s very good at what he does!!!

Private Saxophone Teacher

The saxophone can be one of the funnest instruments to play, no questions asked! In order to reach that point it's important to have certain things in order such as: sound production, breath support, musicality, and technique. In lessons use a variety of exercises and method/etude books, playing duets together, as well as listening and ear training to give my students a well rounded approach to the saxophone and music helping them to become the best musician they can be.

Bill is the real deal! The reviews were dead on. Bill is a superstar instructor. He is energetic, engaging, and an amazing teacher who knows the instrument. You will make great progress. I highly recommend him!
Charles H.
Bill has a competent, easy manner that makes learning an enjoyable experience.
Micah
I started with Bill almost two years ago and I was at about zero on the piano. He's helped me reach the point where I can play some standards and even improvise a little over them, and I look forward to improving even more. We began in person but the transition to remote lessons has been seamless.

Bill is patient, attentive, and a whole lot of fun to work with. He has a positive attitude and a great sense of humor, and he backs it up with strong motivational skills to keep you practicing and putting in the work to reach your goals.

Oh, and of course, he's got some incredible chops! He's a talented multi-instrumentalist and a beast on the saxophone. His love of music and knowledge of jazz is sure to rub off on you.

I'm a 52 year-old with no music background and today was my first virtual alto sax lesson with Randall. I must admit that I was very intimidated at first and didn't think that I would be able to get the most out of this virtual learning experience. However, Randall made me very comfortable and quickly got me relaxed as if he were right there with me in my living room. We began by him showing me the do's and don'ts of putting my horn together (especially the mouthpiece), fingering, and creating the sound I wanted. I was impressed because he taught me about 5 to 6 notes in this initial session. To be honest I didn't even think that I would've been able to get a note out but I did. Although I didn't want my first saxophone lesson to be virtual, I can confidently say that I will continue my sessions with Randall and highly recommend his services.

Robert
Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that.

I will teach you the fundamental basics as well as some tricks I learned from various artists I've played with.

I will also teach you how to write and compose your own music using my background music I send you.

I have been very pleased with the piano instruction Frixos has provided to my grand-daughter. He is very encouraging and tries to make the piano lessons interesting.
Frixos has been very understanding when problems arise and lessons need to be changed.😊 If you are looking for a reputable instructor, let me suggest Frixos.

We love Frixos! He is a wonderful teacher and person. We were unsure how online classes would go, but it’s been great. Frixos has done an excellent job of teaching our granddaughter. He makes it easy for her to learn, yet still challenges her.

"Dr. Wen was the best professor and lesson instructor I have ever had. I took lessons with him for over seven years starting in high school and throughout my entire college. He shares his expertise in music theory, techniques, and instrument mechanics. He really helped me gain confidence in my playing abilities, showed me how I should be practicing in order to get the most of each rehearsal, and taught me so much about myself as a player. His ability to instruct on every aspect of playing the instrument is something I really admire. Need help rhythmically? He will help you understand time, measurement, and notes. Need help technically? He has all the ways to practice to get that much closer to perfection and how to maintain it. Need help with scales? He will help you to truly understand the scale in order for you to play it better. Not only will he help with the "how-tos," he will explain the why. Needing help with breathing techniques or articulations? He will take you through exercises that will enhance every aspect of your playing. He sets the standards high, and helps you reach your goals. I will always recommend Dr. Wen!"

"Dan is a fountain of knowledge; an incredibly talented and eclectic artist. I have been struggling with alto sax for years but with Dan’s approach, I finally feel, I am making some progress. Dan tailors the lessons to fit your needs; making it challenging, comprehensive, engaging and fun. He helps me transcribe small parts of licks I like, which has been an invaluable experience for me. He makes sure that you REALLY get the material you are studying. Don’t just shake your head and say “yes”.
He is always there to answer your questions (no matter how dumb they may seem), encourages and motivates you."

"I returned to saxophone after not playing for years, and at the recommendation of a local player took lessons with Mike. Mike's a great player, but more importantly, he's a great teacher. He's made a study of teaching wind instruments and can really help identify technical issues. Working with Mike on improvising and jazz phrasing and articulation has been really fun and productive for me, and has improved my musicianship in other areas (I'm mostly and upright bassist). I haven't had a sax lesson for a little while, but I recently got a clarinet and I'm back with Mike. The lessons are, as always, rewarding and enjoyable. Highly recommended."
