I can't wait to work with you!

I was a complete beginner who bought a saxophone on a whim and had no idea how to even hold it. Michael was patient and such a great teacher that within a few lessons I'm now able to play notes and simple tunes! He's very knowledgeable and is willing to work with you to achieve YOUR goals. I look forward to my lessons with him because I always leave with a new skill or a new insight. Thank YOU Michael!

Michael is an incredible teacher with a true passion for helping his students reach their full potential. I took lessons for years before coming to him and was still struggling with my sound. After hearing me play once, he was able to quickly diagnose the problem and outline a number of tips on how to break my bad habits. You'd be hard pressed to find another teacher who is not only as deeply knowledgeable as Michael is but also as genuinely excited to share that knowledge. I very much look forward to our lessons every week!

I've been taking lessons from Michael for 3 months now. He's one of the best instructors that I have worked with. His teaching style is a mixture of theory, concepts, structure, but most importantly - fun! He really cares about you understanding the fundamentals for a successful musical journey but also makes sure that you're having fun and learning to play the music that you want to play. I'd highly recommend him to anyone. Whether you're a novice or veteran - he has the knowledge, experience, and personality to cater to a diverse network in the music community. Happy saxophone playing everyone!
