John D

Instruments:

I am a passionate and energetic guitar teacher with five years of experience teaching in both group and private lesson settings. In addition, I have over eight years of experience working with children as a camp counselor and swim instructor. I genuinely love teaching children music and believe from my experience that learning an instrument can truly have a positive effect on a child’s social and intellectual maturation.

I graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music, with a B.M. in Jazz Performance (saxophone).

More Information About Saxophone Lessons

Students interested in learning saxophone should start with the alto sax. As the student progresses they may switch to soprano, tenor, or bass sax. Reliable brands to rent include Jupiter, Yamaha, and Selmer. Sax students will also need to purchase reeds. Musika recommends a Rico 1.5 or 2.
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!
Each lesson is personalized to the student. The teacher will concentrate on the needs and goals of the individual. However, general topics will be covered, such as: how to clean, put together, and hold the saxophone, how to blow correctly into the instrument to develop a nice tone in all registers, how to finger the notes, slurring and tongueing, and how to read music!
Saxophone can be a pleasure to learn at any age or level. We have adults who are total novices, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
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.
