Featured Palmdale Saxophone Teachers

Michael C

Instruments:

Ever since I was a kid, I had a passion for mentoring and tutoring.  Nothing makes me feel as fulfilled as a long day of teaching, having fun with my students and helping them make progress both in their musical studies and development as people.  As a performer, my career encompasses anything from classical and jazz concerts to musical theater productions and studio recording sessions.  I am constantly looking for new ways to contribute to my craft and find new outlets for performing.  In 2010, I founded a music publishing company, which provides sheet music and recordings for professional saxophonists and advanced students.

David W

Instruments:

I am a professional multi-instrumentalist living in Los Angeles, performing, teaching, and recording regularly on saxophone, flute, and trumpet.  I graduated from Oberlin Conservatory in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music in Saxophone Performance.  Since graduating from Oberlin, I have had the chance to travel and perform around the country and world with many fantastic musicians in a variety of genres.  I specialize in jazz, but have classical training and experience in a wide varieties of music from salsa to funk.

Joshua P

Instruments:

Joshua was born in the town of Hebron, Ohio and graduated from a small rural high school.  Joshua first found his love for music with the help of his high school band director Mr. Scott Coffey, a graduate of Ohio University. From the 7th grade until high school graduation, Joshua studied saxophone privately with Mr. Coffey, and held the highest position in the high school symphonic band. He was a part of many honor bands around Ohio including two years of Ohio University honor Band, two years of District Honor Band, and Capital University Honor Reading Band. He participated in marching band for all four years of high school and for two years at Ohio University with the Marching 110. In high school he arranged music for the marching band to play. After high school graduation in 2009 Joshua attended Ohio University, studying Music Composition privately with Dr. Mark Phillips and Music Production at Ohio University Scripps College of Communication. Josh was a part of a variety of projects during his four years. One of the first major projects was being the music director for the musical “Rent” for the Los Flamingo Company, and he spent much of his time training vocalist and organizing the orchestra pit. With Dr. Mark Phillips and Professor Andre Gribou, a film composer, Joshua began studying film music. He composed for countless films for the HTC Ohio University Program and for graduate student films, and also wrote the full score for an 88 minute film. The main focus of his music composing was in Midi composing and sample music, and while in college he maintained many sound libraries from Sweetwater Music and learned to perfect sample library composing. The study of Music Production came very easy for Joshua and he enjoyed learning how to use many Digital Audio Workstation’s (DAW’s), as well as recording artists, finding talent, and learning the art of mastering albums. Josh had the opportunity to work at Ohio University School of Music as their sound engineer from 2009-2012, in charge of recording, mixing, and mastering the concerts for school records and educational use. Outside of working for the School of Music, Joshua also got to record countless bands and watch professors recording artists professionally in the Radio Television Recording Studio.  As a recent graduate of Ohio University, Joshua has moved to Los Angeles California in pursuit of a film music and sound engineering career. 

Joong-In R

Instruments:

I am a classical trained musician. I was brought up in Bloomington Indiana, the home of the no.1 rated music school in the States (by the teacher's association). Ever since I was 10, I was involved with the University music life. I had the fortune to study with Janos Starker - perhaps the greatest cello technician in the world! His playing style is comfortable, clean, natural, and free of tension problems. Anyone can learn this great technique and benefit from it. I stress this technique on all of the instruments we teach. I was the best teacher in Los Angeles area for producing the most competition winners of SYMF a few years back (cello).

More Information About Saxophone Lessons

Saxophone students typically begin on alto sax. Yamaha, Selmer, and Jupiter are good brands to start. For reeds we would recommend a Rico 1.5 or 2. As the player becomes more comfortable he or she may switch to reed with a higher strength or 3 or 4. For this reason, Musika recommends consulting the teacher before buying reeds in bulk.
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!
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!
Our recommended starting age for saxophone lessons is age 8. Most school music programs have students start playing saxophone with the band when there are in 3rd grade. The student needs to be big enough to be able to appropriately hold the instrument with the aid of a neckstrap, and have the lung capacity to blow properly.
