Featured Milford Saxophone Teachers

Matthew G

Instruments:

Multi Instrumentalist and composer Matt G, a native New Yorker, has been on the NYC jazz scene since 1997.  After taking an interest in music at an early age, his path eventually led him to jazz and improvization.  He cultivated the necessary tools to become a professional musician at The Purchase Conservatory of Music and has since shared the stage with jazz luminaries such as Adam Nussbaum, Andy Laverne, Todd Coolman, Ray Vega, Jon Cowherd, and the last Dennis Irwin.  Matt's debut album "Familiar Places" garnered critical acclaim and peaked at #13 on the CMJ Jazz Radio Chart.  "Blood Songs", Garrison's sophomore record, was released in May of 2012 and has already received glowing reviews.

Michael C

Instruments:

I have had many experiences in my pursuit of Music throughout the Eastern Seaboard. I have had professional singing experiences as well in a few varied genres, include Gospel, Spiritual and Classical musics. My professional training in Education has afforded me the luxury of teaching in a variety of educational settings ranging from Pre-School to Adult Continuing Education. To culminate my work experiences in Therapeutic Music as both a Recreation Specialist and Music Therapist, I completed one year of study at New York University and have plans to one day finish a program I started there. I have also maintained my skill at performance on Woodwinds and Classical guitar, which I enjoy especially having students to prepare for.

Steven F

Instruments:

Originally from Croton On Hudson, NY, I am a lover of all the aspects of music! I was the Valedictorian of the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in 2013, and I also attended Manhattan School of Music for two years prior. Music is my life, and I am a passionate performer and teacher. I have had much experience performing, recording and teaching in the the NYC/Hudson Valley areas for over 5 years. I've been featured at the Bern Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and have also played at many NY venues including the Bitter End, Fat Cat, Smalls, The Falcon Arts Center and many others.   

Amanda C

Instruments:

I'm a passionate, motivated, and organized instructor who loves working with my students to share my love of music. I graduated from Northwestern University this June with my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education and Saxophone Performance. I maintained a studio of six saxophone, piano, and percussion students while earning my degree, so I am very experienced with private teaching! As a saxophone player, woodwinds are my specialty. I am very comfortable teaching saxophone, clarinet, and flute, in addition to non woodwind instruments like piano and percussion. I am excited to work with you and your child in the beginning or middle of their musical journey!

Helena L

Instruments:

Born and raised in NYC, I began my musical training quite early as a professional singer and clarinet player in the band program in middle school, ultimately graduating from The High School of Music and Art (LaGuardia, "Fame"). While there, my sister and I sang with a girl that later became famous and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. I continued my musical education both in school and performing in genres of classical, rock, pop, Gospel, r&b, soul, and folk. A true mix!! Songwriting came later and currently, I have two CD's of my own with original material on both. I've been teaching all ages from 8-88 since I was 18 as a private music teacher and coach, in private and public schools and community centers. I created workshops and shows for my student's participation. Whether it's singing, learning piano, orchestral instuments or songwriting, I am delighted to bring my students where they aspire to reach.

More Information About Saxophone Lessons

Besides renting a saxophone, players will also need to purchase reeds. The strength of the reed significantly affects the ease of playing, and so most beginners find it best to begin with a softer reed. We recommend starting with a 1.5 or 2 Rico brand. Selmer, Jupiter, and Yamaha are solid choices for renting an alto saxophone.
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.
Saxophone can be a wonderful instrument for older students. Of the woodwinds, the saxophone can be a relatively easy instrument to get a sound out of, and our teachers can work with you to develop and mature that sound. The saxophone is an incredibly versitle instrument, popular in jazz, pop, and blues. Whatever your style, our teachers can cater to you!
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.
