Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophone is my first instrument. I have soprano, alto and tenor saxophones and am especially partial to the tenor.

About Hayes

I've played sax for 27 years, bass for 22, and taught many students and performed with a variety of acts. I studied music and education at Kent State University, obtaining a bachelor's degree in 2006. Musical instruction is therapeutic for some, for for others it can be a journey to some destination

Hayes is super helpful and encouraging. I walked in feeling a little intimidated because I haven't really played in 30 years. He made me feel very comfortable and motivated. Good first lesson.
George
As a middle-aged guy who has played drums all my life, I wanted to add the bass guitar to my repertoire. Hayes is exactly the right guy and was able to show me how to get off to a quick start and then be able to add to my skills as I keep playing. I would recommend him highly!

Dr. Lance is so great with my son! He is so kind and patient and my son really enjoys his lessons with him! I am amazed with the speed at which my son has learned under his instruction. He encourages my son’s curiosity with music and saxophone related things. I’m very happy with all that Dr. Lance has taught my son thus far and am looking forward to continuing with him in the future!!

I’ve started both speaking voice and singing lessons with Lance. My primary goal was to speak with a less nasal voice. Lance does a great job of explaining what is happening mechanically when you produce sound with your voice, and how to manipulate your voice by manipulating muscles in your mouth/throat. He also gave me exercises to help me develop a feel for controlling these muscles, which have been helpful.

I’ve only had 3 lessons so far, and I’ve already had someone tell my that my voice sounds significantly better / less nasal, so I’m very happy with the results Lance has helped me produce so far!

"When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him."
