matthew f

Instruments:

             My goal the last few years has been learning and perfecting the technique and different styles of the clarinet. I've worked and studied with some of the best clarinetist in the world and feel I have a great idea of what it takes, and have a great love for what I'm doing. I am well versed in many styles of playing from jazz, to romantic, to pop, even klezmer having studied with Frank London from the Klezmatics. I've done quite a bit of teaching both privately, and in a group classroom format. I am constantly seeking to spread my love of the clarinet and the many different genres it can be used both through my playing, and through my teaching. For my visit my website. mfclarinet.webs.com

Katherine G

Instruments:

I am a flutist, educator, musicologist, and arts administrator from Morganville, NJ. I hold a Bachelor of Music Honors Degree with Distinction in Music Education from the University of Delaware and recently completed a Master of Arts in Musicology from Tufts University. I am certified to teach music from K-12 in Massachusetts and have been playing the flute for fourteen years, having 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 two summers performing operetta and musicals on flute, piccolo, clarinet, and alto/tenor saxophone with the College Light Opera Company in Falmouth, MA, and am currently the Woodwind Instructor for the Boston University Marching Band. I have always had a passion for teaching and 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. 

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!

More Information About Saxophone Lessons

For a beginning player, we would recommend renting a Jupiter, Yamaha, or Selmer saxophone. Sax students will also need to purchase reeds to play on their instrument. For new players a softer reed is more appropriate. The strength of a reed is measured on a scale from 1-4: 1 being the softest, 4 being the hardest. We recommend starting with a Rico brand 1.5 or 2 reed, however, students should meet with their teacher first before buying reeds in bulk.
Lessons in home are a great way to improve your saxophone skills and save time and money. Taking lessons in your home reduces travel time and expenses and allows you to express yourself musically in the space you know best.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's sax lessons may include, but are not limited to: correct embouchure formation, how to appropriately shape your lips around the mouthpiece, proper breathing and posture, how to develop a solid tone in low and high registers, how to hold, assemble, and clean the instrument properly, fingerings for notes, and techniques for developing quick finger action, how to read music: rhythms, note names, dynamics, etc, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the saxophone!
Saxophone can be an extremely satisfying instrument to study at any age. Most adults, even without experience, find they are able to progress quickly with consistent instruction and focused practice. The saxophone is great instrument for solo playing or in a group setting.
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.
