Joshua P

Instruments:

I was born in the town of Hebron, Ohio and graduated from a small rural high school. I first found my love for music with the help of my high school band director Mr. Scott Coffey, a graduate of Ohio University. From the 7th grade until high school graduation, I studied saxophone privately with Mr. Coffey, and held the highest position in the high school symphonic band. I 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. I 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 I arranged music for the marching band to play. After high school graduation in 2009 I attended Ohio University, studying Music Composition privately with Dr. Mark Phillips and Music Production at Ohio University Scripps College of Communication. I was a part of a variety of projects during my four years. One of the first major projects was being the music director for the musical “Rent” for the Los Flamingo Company, and I spent much of my time training vocalist and organizing the orchestra pit. With Dr. Mark Phillips and Professor Andre Gribou, a film composer, I began studying film music. I 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 my music composing was in Midi composing and sample music, and while in college I maintained many sound libraries from Sweetwater Music and learned to perfect sample library composing. The study of Music Production came very easy for me and I 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. I 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, I 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, I moved to Los Angeles California in pursuit of a film music and sound engineering career.

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.
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!
Your saxophone teacher will concentrate on developing a nice tone in all registers, how properly shape your lips around the mouthpiece, correct breathing and posture, and techniques for improving quick finger action. If you are interested in a particular style, we can match you with an instructor who has experience teaching that genre.
Many of our adult saxophone students are complete beginners, while others are former saxophonists now returning to an old hobby. We also have students who are more advanced and are looking to take their skills in both advanced classical repertoire and/or jazz improvization to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
Many young players find it easy to produce a sound on saxophone. From there, our teachers can help hone and develop that sound. All young players use a neckstrap to assist holding the instrument, but the student does need to be big enough to reach the keys and properly blow into the instrument. Musika recommends starting around age 8.
