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.

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. 

Gregory B

Instruments:

I'm a passionate musician, with a deep knowledge of many styles of music. I am equally motivated to help my students find success on the saxophone or clarinet, whatever their goals are. I have had the great fortune to play music on 4 continents, and recently played my first show (of hopefully more!) at the House of Blues in Boston, to a sold-out crowd. I have taken hundreds of lessons over the years from masters such as Dave Liebman, Gary Smulyan, and Lynn Klock. Not only do I have a wide span of knowledge, but a willingness to pass on this knowledge and help students reach their individual goals- no two students have the same goals, and I respect that!

Laura R

Instruments:

Learning to play a musical instrument well is an act of mind, body, and soul.  The mind becomes strong and powerful.  The body learns how to do what the mind tells it to.  And, the soul is expressed with the tools you have learned.   From the first time I knew I wanted to play music, I have had nothing but enthusiasm for learning how to express myself through art.  I have not only grown to play what I want to play, but I have grown as a person.  I have learned self-discipline, the glory of success, and the joy of doing what I love.  BUT, the most gratifying aspect of music is sharing it with others through performance and teaching.

More Information About Saxophone Lessons

Musika recommends renting a Yamaha, Jupiter, or Selmer saxophone. The student will also need to purchase a few reeds to begin. The strength of reed is measure of a scale of 1-4, 1 being the softest, 4 being the hardest. We recommend starting with a softer reed, a Rico 1.5 or 2.
Musika offers in-home lessons for the same price as in-studio lessons! Lessons in your home are a convient means for you to develop as a musician. This option saves you time, money, and the stress and hassle of traveling!
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.
It is never too late to begin sax! We have many students who begin as adults. Our teachers have experience working with all ages and can work with you whether you are a beginner just looking to gain exposure or advanced player looking to improve.
Our recommended starting age for saxophone lessons is age 8. Most school music programs have students start playing saxophone with the band when there are in 3rd grade. The student needs to be big enough to be able to appropriately hold the instrument with the aid of a neckstrap, and have the lung capacity to blow properly.
