I've played sax for 19 years. I specialize in teaching improv and 'jamming' skills. The joy of music is found when you allow yourself to have fun and play from your spirit instead of your logical mind. I can assist with helping you get in the “zone”. 🎷

I have been playing the saxophone since I was 9 years old, and was tutoring younger band students since 10 years old. Once I started college, about 5 years ago, I started teaching saxophone lessons professionally.

Lessons structures vary depending on the student's playing level. Prior to the first lesson, I work with all students to understand their goal(s) so we can structure the lesson to achieve these goals.
With complete beginners, after the first lesson you can expect to learn how to put the instrument together and even play a short song. In our later lessons we talk about instrument basics such as breath control, embouchure, hand position, tuning, and more. With my intermediate students we focus the first half of the lesson on basics/technique/scales while the second half we work on the music that we have selected. I include some basic music theory in all lessons.

For my lessons, I use a technique book and song book, varying on the students level. I provide extra sheet ...
