Private Saxophone Teacher

Professional saxophonist, trained at the nations top music schools, I teach students of all levels and ages, whether just beginning or an experienced player. I have a great amount of experience in both classical and jazz and have been playing for about 21 years myself. I currently teach saxophone at Austin Peay State University and Tennessee State University, but truly enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities!

In addition to helping students establish solid fundamentals, I can help you reach your goals, whether that be through working on classical solo repertoire, jazz and improvisation, band music, preparing for a competition or audition, and more. I try to make lessons fun and enjoyable for the student.

If you don't live near me, online lessons are a great alternative to in person lessons. I have had success teaching many students of various abilities and ages throughout the country and abroad online! I have taught online students from 26 different states and 3 ...

Private Saxophone Teacher

I offer a complete and in-depth understanding of how to play the saxophone for students of any skill level. I have a degree in Jazz Saxophone from the highly acclaimed Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, and am extremely experienced in many other instruments and genres. I have experience teaching in public schools as well as teaching privately, so I am used to nearly every possible situation. I specialize in catering my lessons to the specific goals of my students and take pride in creating an enjoyable environment for each individual!

My lessons focus on the basics and fundamentals of saxophone, in addition to:
- reading music
- improvisation and soloing
- ensemble and orchestral playing
- genre specific skills (such as growling, vibrato, tone, altissimo, etc.)

I think it's important to teach what the student wants to learn, so I am open to working on songs and pieces that aren't necessarily the norm for saxophonists!

About Christopher

Hey there, I'm Chris! I've been studying and playing multiple instruments since I was 3 years old, and have dedicated my life to creating and teaching the best music possible.

My son is in 10th grade and has been studying Saxophone with Ian for almost 4 years. Ian is great on teaching, nice to student, always responsive to questions. Highly recommended.
Yuka O.
Me and my 12-year-old son started saxophone two years ago together. Ian had a great guide to us who had never played the instrument. My growth is slow due to age issues, (of course satisfied) but my son's growth was great. My son now has a great deal of confidence as a jazz player, and he was able to work on other things positively too. We met Ian then became more into music and jazz. He is patient and will tell you until we can do. Ian is mainly jazz, but he is also very familiar with brass band and classical saxophone too. He is a working musician who do live performance, gig, and compose in various places. He loves music from the heart, his solo is so beatuiful. Ian's lessons has changed our life. We really grateful for giving us his time.

Private Saxophone Teacher

I began playing saxophone in 2003. I found playing music to be a magical and fulfilling experience. I graduated from Wayne State University with a Bachelor of Music in 1993.
Since I love making music so much, I wanted to share with others the joy of music, and began teaching in 2003. Music is a fun form of self-expression and can improve focus and self-confidence. I enjoy teaching students of all levels and ages.
As a clarinetist, it made perfect sense to me to pick up the saxophone. It is a great instrument to play. I really enjoy it.
Whatever your reason for learning, I’m sure I can help you reach your music goals. Sign up for your first lesson today, and let’s get started!

Jack R.
Heather is a great teacher; she is able to gauge ability and keeps the lessons varied and interesting, always pushing you just at the edge, beyond what you thought you were capable of. Friendly, amiable, and laidback in style, she makes learning in a comfortable atmosphere fun. You can tell she has a real passion for music and teaching, and results after just a few lessons proves she knows what she is doing.

I am a beginning singer, my only prior experience was singing with the congregation in church, not the choir.
Quinn
She's really nice, and makes warm-ups before starting the lesson for your voice range. The variety of songs you can sing is pretty big, you want to sing in Italian? There's plenty! Want to sing in Latin? I'm pretty sure there's a few! There are songs from various musicals, too. All in all, she's a pretty great teacher.

"Being new to the online lesson format, I was skeptical at first, and have waited about 5 lessons to write this review. I am really glad we (randomly) picked Lucas to help my 6th grade son get started with saxophone. I'm so impressed with Lucas' ability to gauge through at at times imperfect internet connection what feedback to give my son. Lucas is excellent at giving instruction in understandable, and usable bites of information. The lessons are well paced and I can hear my son improve over the course of every lesson. The convenience of the online lesson cannot be overstated- we live in a rural area where finding an teacher and getting to a lesson was challenging to fit into our schedules, so it is amazing to have such great instruction on a schedule that fits in with our life. I would definitely recommend Lucas specifically, and the takelessons format to anyone looking for saxophone lessons."
