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”. 🎷

It is my philosophy that learning and playing an instrument should be an joyful experience, and it is my goal to spark a love of music in all my students. I strive to help my students achieve their musical goals, whether that's learning their first songs on an instrument, landing a spot in an ensemble, or even getting into music school.

I have been an avid saxophone player since I was in middle school. I have much experience leading saxophone sections and jazz bands, as well as coaching private students, and I would love to help you progress on your musical journey.

I have been playing and teaching the saxophone for 25 years. Saxophone was my original instrument of choice as I played it in the public school bands and in college. I emphasize the fundamental of sound production, fingerings, and music reading. The saxophone is a very versatile instrument In playing classical to jazz music. You can begin today to learn or improve your saxophone playing!

I teach beginning saxophone students basic note reading. Advanced students can learn theory and improvisation.

About John

I have been teaching young people and adults how to play musical instruments for over 20 years. A lot of my students are well on their way to a rewarding future with music, some as professionals and others as hobbyists. In addition to being a teacher, I am also a professional performer who has worke

My son has taken lessons from John for over four years and the results have been incredible. When my son first began piano I noticed that he taught the right way. Many teachers don't care about the method as long as whatever the child is learning seems good.

John has consistently taught sight reading as a necessity. I want my son to be able to play anything eventually and this foundation that he has taught my son not only has him on the right track, my son has also learned perfect pitch, chords and he knows theory at an age where most children have no clue. I am not promising that your child will learn all of that, but with the foundation and proper teaching that John provides, it is more than a possibility if your child loves music as mine does.

John's lessons are the only formal music training my son gets and the results are excellent. John's lessons are worth far more than what we pay and he is leagues above the garden variety "School of Rock" type of learning a lot of kids get. I ALWAYS LOVE when my son whips out his latest setlist of songs in front of family and friends. It makes him very proud to do so and it usually puts a genuine smile of happiness and confidence on his face that would make any parent happy.

If you want the right music experience which means learning the right way, you would be lucky to have John Sanders teach your child. He knows how to get it done.
Robert G.
John is amazing! Pre-Covid, he taught my daughter piano in person. He has beautifully navigated teaching piano in the height of a pandemic. My daughter has not missed a beat! John encompasses all the qualities I could hope for in a music teacher. He is patient, kind, and my daughter looks forward to her classes with him each week. I doubt anyone would regret hiring John to work with his/ or her child!
Katie
I have three children with varying levels of commitment to learning to play the piano, and they each took a break from lessons at different times. I think John Sanders did a great job of managing that so they stayed interested and didn’t feel pressured. The individual instruction is most helpful, and all three kids progressed pretty quickly because it was driven by their individual goals—not a too-demanding teacher.

Sound is the key. Developing and nurturing a solid sound opens up all other aspects of music. Once we have a solid sound we can depend on everything we play is more effective.
I teach basic musicianship along with advanced sound production techniques.
Spontaneous creation and composition. I can help you freely improvise in any situation and become a functionary player as well as a soloist.

About Dave

I have been playing the saxophone fro 45 years. I think its all about the sound, the tone. I played with the Microscopic Septet and William Parker's Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra.
