Featured Brookline Saxophone Teachers

Liz T

Instruments:

Liz started playing the flute at the age of six. At a very early age she started formal musical training in her native home town of San Juan Puerto Rico and quickly developed great appreciation for music and arts. She was accepted in an arts specialized school where she was constantly exposed to private lessons, large ensembles and chamber music. Upon finishing this program, she was accepted in the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in flute performance. In 2005 she was awarded 3rd prize of the concerto competition as well as a substitute position with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra where she had the opportunity to play many of the greatest orchestral masterpieces under world-renowned conductors. Shortly after graduating she moved to the city of Cincinnati OH, where she studied privately with the principal flute of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Randolph Bowman. Liz has participated in master classes with Amy Porter, Jim Walker, Lisa Ruoho, Paul Edmund Davies, Amy Likar, Keith Underwood, Carol Winsenc and Mary Karen Clardy. In 2009, she was accepted in the Master of Music, performance division, at the Boston University’s College of Fine Arts under the tutelage of flutist Linda Toote. In the summer of 2011, she participated in Trevor Wye’s master class “Preparing for Employment” where she had an opportunity to work extensively with this world-class flutist. Now a graduate she is actively engaged as a freelancer and private flute instructor in the New England area. 

Sagit Z

Instruments:

I have been teaching music for many years and I love sharing what I know and approaching music together with someone who has a passion for it. my experience touring and at Berklee College of Music has given me the tools to deepen my knowledge and provide a good learning experience. I am also a certified Yoga and Meditation instructor, therefore, I teach how to connect the body with the instrument and how to develop technique and creativity by incorporating silence and breath. I specialize in Jazz, and have a congruous background of classical music, rock, pop, Latin and folk music. Whatever the student like I will go with that. I sometimes transcribe the music that the student likes for him to play and practice.

Katherine G

Instruments:

As a recent graduate of the University of Delaware, I hold a degree in Music Education and am certified to teach music from K-12. I have been playing the flute for thirteen years and have performed in ensembles ranging from the UD Symphony Orchestra as a flutist/piccolo player to UD Singers as a vocalist and UD Jazz Ensemble II as a trombonist. I spent the past two summers performing operetta and musicals on flute, piccolo, clarinet, and alto/tenor saxophone with the College Light Opera Company. I have always had a passion for teaching; I am currently working on my M.A. in Musicology at Tufts University, and I hope to pursue my PhD. in order to work with students at the college level.

Tyler B

Instruments:

Originally from Florida, I am now living and working as a saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and teacher in Boston after completing my Master's degree from the New England Conservatory. As a performer, I play with several local bands in the jazz, rock, funk, world, and soul genres. As a teacher, I want to see my students not only develop a love of music, but develop a sense of hard work, community, and curiosity through music that they can take with them everywhere. 

Gordon B

Instruments:

I'm passionate about music. I've written, conducted, and performed music as a multi-instrumentalist. I've also taught privately (on a number of concert band instruments) and written on the subject.

More Information About Saxophone Lessons

Saxophone students typically begin on alto sax. Yamaha, Selmer, and Jupiter are good brands to start. For reeds we would recommend a Rico 1.5 or 2. As the player becomes more comfortable he or she may switch to reed with a higher strength or 3 or 4. For this reason, Musika recommends consulting the teacher before buying reeds in bulk.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Each teacher has his or her own style, but as a new saxophone player you can expect to learn about music theory and note-reading. Other topics covered in a lesson will likely include: instrument care, fingerings for notes and how to develop quick finger action, correct breathing and embouchure formation, and tips for developing a beautiful sound in all registers.
Adults students often notice signicant progress on saxophone. Our teachers work with all levels, older students who are new to the instrument, or adults who formerly played and are now hoping to get back in the groove. Most students are surprised to find how quickly it all comes back!
Most saxophonists begin in 4th grade. Unlike the piano or specific string instruments, it is not a good idea to start sax before the student enters elementary school. The student does need to have the strength to appropriately hold the instrument, and have the lung capacity to blow into the sax and produce a supported sound.
