My students excel in everything they do because of the techniques we learn that incorporate skills to strengthen learning in subjects including: math, science, languages, reading, writing, creativity and many more life long skills. I challenge my students and encourage them to have fun most of all in pursuing their passions for music.

I have had many successful students in my 10 years teaching saxophone! I always gear lessons toward the individual student's musical goals and interests and I am constantly reinforcing good technique and practice habits. My favorite genre to teach is jazz, but I can help you with classical and pop music, too!

I have been performing and teaching music professionally for 10 years in a variety of settings. I received my bachelor's degree in music education and jazz studies from Western Michigan University and my master's in jazz studies from Temple University in Philadelphia. My passion is jazz saxophon

Mr. Hudson-Casanova is a great teacher with a lot of experience. Ask a question, and he'll answer or guide you in the right direction to explore your topic of inquiry in an easy manner. He has helped me grow and improve as a saxophone player, and more so as a musician overall, through studies with various exercises like long tones, articulations, scales and progressions, and improvising on various jazz standards. He has helped me discover new techniques and helped me to learn to incorporate them into my playing. No matter your ability, Mr. HC can help you grow and learn!
Clare
Michael has worked with my daughter throughout high school and is such a talented teacher and musician. More recently they have been learning jazz as well classical (my daughters request, which Michael always encourages) and she has had so much fun with it.
Jack
Michael has dramatically improved my ability to play the saxophone and understand Western music theory. Over the year of taking lessons with Michael, he's taught me the foundations of saxophone: scales, long tones, and playing by ear, all the while sharing his contagious love for music and being extremely patient (my saxophone was broken and squeaky for our first three months of lessons, haha). He's generously created and provided custom sheet music exercises, duet recordings, and jazz playlists to inspire me. All in all, Michael is giving me an expert and friendly education.

I offer a complete and in-depth understanding of how to play the saxophone for students of any skill level. I have a degree in Jazz Saxophone from the highly acclaimed Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, and am extremely experienced in many other instruments and genres. I have experience teaching in public schools as well as teaching privately, so I am used to nearly every possible situation. I specialize in catering my lessons to the specific goals of my students and take pride in creating an enjoyable environment for each individual!

My lessons focus on the basics and fundamentals of saxophone, in addition to:
- reading music
- improvisation and soloing
- ensemble and orchestral playing
- genre specific skills (such as growling, vibrato, tone, altissimo, etc.)

I think it's important to teach what the student wants to learn, so I am open to working on songs and pieces that aren't necessarily the norm for saxophonists!

About Christopher

Hey there, I'm Chris! I've been studying and playing multiple instruments since I was 3 years old, and have dedicated my life to creating and teaching the best music possible.

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 clarinet

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.
