Featured New york Saxophone Teachers

Anna W

Instruments:

New York-based flute and saxophone player Anna is a versatile improviser holding both an open respect for the tradition of jazz and a healthy disregard for its more worn conventions.  Her critically acclaimed first album as a leader, Third Floor People (Nowt Records, 2010), is an adventurous release featuring two bassless quartets – one from Montreal, the other from New York. Made up of musicians drawing from diverse influences and backgrounds, Third Floor People is unique in its palpable emotional energy and fearless experimentation. In addition to leading her quartets, Anna also plays in the collective Field Vision; the Martin Krümmling Ensemble, which recently recorded with Mark Turner; the Daniel Jamieson Danjam Orchestra, in which Webber performed with Tony Malaby as well as Jim McNeely and recorded with Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra mainstay John Riley; the Ben Bryden Flying Scot Quintet and Fabian Almazan’s wind sextet, among many others.  She appears on the Grammy-nominated album Urbanus (Concord Records, 2009) by Stefon Harris & Blackout, and has performed with such diverse talents as John Hollenbeck, David Liebman, Ben Street, Lage Lund, and Dave Douglas. She has toured throughout the USA, Canada, and Europe as a leader and a sideperson. She is the winner of the Prix François-Marcaurelle 2010 at the OFF Festival of Jazz in Montreal. She received national recognition as a finalist in the Mary Lou Williams Saxophone Competition in Washington, D.C. In addition, she has been honoured with grants from both the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

Daniel G

Instruments:

Daniel is a versatile musician, composer, and educator. He began playing saxophone at age 11, and has since expanded his repertoire to include multiple woodwind instruments. Originally from midcoast Maine, Daniel has been based primarily out of New York since 2008 when he began his studies at Purchase College. Daniel looks forward to remaining an active teacher in the tri-state area, and a return to Purchase College, this time as a graduate student and he has also recently moved full-time to New York City!

Heather B

Instruments:

I am a flutist originating from New Jersey, but now living in Queens. I graduated with a Bachelors in Music Education and Performance from Manhattanville College and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Music with a concentration in Ethnomusicology from Hunter College. I can be found frequently performing on the flute and the alto saxophone in and around the New York City area. I have been fortunate enough to study with great teachers who have a gift for inspiration, and I have been actively trying to pass this passion on to the next generation of musicians. Because of this, I keepe a busy teaching schedule, accumulating students from New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, traveling to my studio in Queens.

Daniel J

Instruments:

New York-based musician Daniel Jamieson grew up in Toronto, Canada. He currently works as a free-lance composer, conductor, woodwind specialist, and educator. Daniel's writing commissions span a variety of styles including jazz, pop, and musical theatre. He leads a 10 piece jazz ensemble, the “Daniel Jamieson Tentet” and his own big band, the “Danjam Orchestra.” Daniel’s acclaimed 2011 debut release, SUDDEN APPEARANCE, places him at the forefront of the current crop of young big band leaders. The project was produced by Jim McNeely and featured John Riley on drums. Since then, Dan has attained international recognition for his work as a composer, arranger and conductor. He has collaborated with Joe Lovano (Coltrane Ballads Project), Kurt Elling, Marcus Miller, Ingrid Jensen, Vince Mendoza, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Metropole Orchestra. In 2009, Daniel received a Latin Grammy nomination for Bobby Sanabria's TITO PUENTE MASTERWORKS LIVE, which features Daniel on lead alto.

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.
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!
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 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.
The saxophone is a fairly durable instrument and can be a great instrument for a young player. However, the student does need to be big enough to hold the instrument, and have the lung capacity to create a supported sound. New players should start on alto sax.
