Private Saxophone Teacher

Hello!

I have been teaching and coaching saxophone players for 12 years. I have an undergraduate degree in music education, specializing in classical saxophone, and a master's degree in saxophone performance, specializing in jazz and popular music.

Each student/musician has their own voice, their own unique way of creating the music they love. It is my goal to help each student find their voice, develop their skills, and help them continue on the lifelong journey of creating, learning, and experiencing music.

Hi! My name is Matt. I believe that everyone can learn and want to provide an open-minded, creative environment where musicians at any level can explore and discover something new about themselves through their personal music journey. I live in Nashville, TN and am an Adjunct Professor of M

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'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!

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!

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophonist, Composer, Educator.
21 years of practice, 10 years of teaching, 1 MASTER of Pedagogy, 2 BACHELORS in Classical and Jazz Performance (New School, NY).

My motto is efficient work for maximum pleasure. The idea is to build up a strong foundation of basic technique of the instrument (body, sound, air, time) in order to quickly come to play along your music idols.

With more than 20 years of practice and more than a decade of experience teaching, I've seen and gone through all kinds of mistakes myself which allows me to really know the correct and sane way to play saxophone, effortlessly and beautifully. Moreover, I have played all kinds of music through the years going from Bach to John Cage, from pop to classical to jazz, afro-cuban, brazilian, etc. Therefore, I'll be able to adapt my teaching specifically to your goals and to enlarge your scope of knowledge.

Caution : risks of addiction, immense satisfaction and personal development.

Despite the covid and the distance, the courses are online. Alain is very pedagogical and patient (I'm blond and not so young), and of course a very good saxophonist. I highly recommend him.
With Alain you will progress quickly.
