For beginning students who are children, I usually start with a songbook, such as the Accent on Achievement method book. Once the student has a grasp on the fundamentals, I begin to introduce solo repertoire. For adult students, I try to find out what the student is interested in pursuing, and then if they are a beginner, I teach fundamentals through the Rubank method books and supplement with songs that are approapriate to the student's taste. If a student is interested in beginning improvisation, I start with teaching simple forms, such as the blues, in order to introduce the idea of playing over a chord progression as well as playing by ear, and then proceed according to the student's interests.

Patience, encouragement and positive reinforcement are the goals of my teaching. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs and interests of the students, offering the standard technical material and classical repertoire combined with folk and contemporary literature.

  I am a saxophonist and reed player performing in the Boston area with a focus on contemporary music.  I hold a Bachelor of Music from Boston University’s School of Music in Saxophone performance, and in May will hold a Masters of Music from the same institution.  I have played saxophone and clarinet in musical theater productions including Chicago, Thoroughly Modern Millie and Seussical the Musical, as well as in the Boston University Big Band.  As a specialist in new music, I have had the pleasure of working with composers Michael Gandolfi, John Harbison, Ketty Nez and Joan Tower to realize their music, and have premiered works by Ketty Nez, Thomas Weaver and John Williams.  Early in 2014 I started a duo with fellow saxophonist Charles Larson devoted to exploring the contemporary repertoire for two saxophones and other modern chamber music.  I believe that exploring as many kinds of music as possible and collaborating with other musicians are the most important (and the most fun!) things that we can get from an education in music.

I am committed to a lifetime of growth in both the performance and education of music, and have been for qute some time. It all started, I suppose, in high school when I was fortunate enough to be a participant in a very high quality program. I am primarily a jazz saxophonist, but my interests do not end there. Alongside my unremitting passion for the jazz saxophone, I began teaching myself guitar and piano (in high school) and drums and voice not long after. I am well versed in the pop/rock genres and have taught myself through learning popular songs but even more singificantly through composition; I have written over one hundred songs as a singer-songwriter and have much to impart in this field. The skills developed in these areas (improvisation, composition, music theory) are the ones most likely to ensure an autonomically deep and everlasting connection to confident music performance and development.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
