Featured Brookline Saxophone Teachers

Lauren M

Instruments:

When I was in middle school I developed a strong passion for music performance and teaching. I went to a performing arts high school called The Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach Florida where I excelled in perforance on clarinet and saxophone. Knowing that I wanted to major in music the performing arts high school helped me very much. I attended The Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA, The Boston Conservatory in Boston, MA, and Boston University in Boston, MA. I have been teaching clarinet and saxophone for eleven years and I love it.

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. 

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. 

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

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.
Having lessons in your home gives you the opportunity to express yourself artistically in the space you feel most comfortable. You let the teacher know what days and times work best, and he or she can come to you for the same price as in-studio lessons!
New saxophonists will learn the basics of caring for the instrument, as well as how to hold and properly assemble the sax. Students will learn correct breathing, how to develop a beautiful tone, articulation, and how to form the proper embouchure. All Musika students will be exposed to music theory and the process of reading music.
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.
