Music has always been a passion of mine. Even from my early childhood, I could remember how music transformed my life in more ways than I could imagine. Research shows us how music has so many benefits so as to impact our emotional state, our memory recall, and even our mental capacities or cognition. I was about 13 years old when I first picked up the guitar. Soon after, I started on the electric and bass guitar. I have played in rock bands and church groups on and off for many years. When I started college, I was however more focused on the piano, general music theory and composition. My teaching style is very laid back and judgement free. I tend to tailor my approach to the specific learning style of the individual. Till this day, I enjoy playing music and find it to be a great respite from the challenges of life. I welcome the opportunity to share with you the joy and wonders of music.

The speed and the angle that your air enters the flute directly controls tone, dynamics, intonation, etc. When blowing into the headjoint, the idea is to try to get the fullest tone you can.   Once you put your flute together, a good place to start your long tones is in the middle register of the flute.

Basic Saxophone Maintenance: Caring for Your Instrument

...to avoid needing to get your instrument professionally worked on more than is necessary.   The saxophone is made of mostly brass, but the pads (underneath each key) are made of leather.

After each performance or practice session, you want to get the moisture out as soon as you can. You should use a swab every time you are finished playing.

The chords are indicated by the chord symbol and, in this case, the chord diagrams that appear above the staff. You should already be familiar with these.
