Rob S

Instruments: Piano Saxophone Flute Clarinet Drums

I'm an extremely dedicated and passionate performing artist, composer, and instructor with a BM in Jazz Studies from the USC Thornton School of Music. I love all aspects of playing, teaching, and writing music, but my favorite part is sharing my passion with others and watching a similar passion grow in themselves. I have been playing saxophone for about 12 years, flute and clarinet for 7, and drums and piano for the past 3 years (so I can only accept beginning drum and piano students.) I love all types of music and will work with you on any genre you want to work on while improving your overall facility on your instrument! Read More

Christopher S

Instruments: Saxophone Flute

I have been playing the saxophone for 20+ years and have had the good fortune to study with some of my jazz heroes. These lessons have not only taught me countless valuable lessons about the instrument and improvisation, but have also shown me how to teach. Spending time with many teachers with various teaching styles has helped me identify the qualities in a teacher that I find most effective, allowing me to incorporate them into my own teaching.

My teaching experience dates back to high school. I would travel around the Imperial Valley County and teach kids who were in elementary school and junior high the basics of the saxophone and help them with any difficulties in the music that they were playing. As I grew older and learned more, I began to teach people who were older than me in high school and the underclassmen as well. Read More

Instruments: Saxophone

How do I know if my child is ready to start lessons?
A good sign that you're kid is ready for private lessons would be if they take sharp interest in music early on or if they're seated within the top chairs of the instrument section they're in. Students who take interest early on might develop a good ear by singing accurately to songs they hear on the radio, are able to produce an uncanny amount of sound on their instrument for their age or perhaps can sight read easier than most others. The easiest way to find it would be to simply ask but that's when knowing your child's behavior is best. Some times a kid will think they're already good enough and they don't need guidance and other times they may be too shy.

What musical accomplishments are you most proud of?
I'm proud of the blue ribbons I was awarded in solo and ensemble during grade school. I performed solo pieces with piano accompaniment and in saxophone quartets with my friends. During senior year of college, I received a few thousand dollars worth of scholarship money for university. During my sophomore year of college, I was awarded a scholarship in honor of my professor of saxophone who had been retiring after 39 years of teaching. Another accomplishment I'm proud of is passing the rigorous audition process for working on a cruise line.

Have any of your students won awards or been selected for special honors? How have they succeeded?
Many of my students have won blue ribbons in competition and been honored first chair for their instrument category. I've helped kids achieve passing grades for playing tests and succeed in chair tests. I've taught a couple of students the techniques of college audition preparation, which I'm very proud of. One of my girls even went on a scholarship to the University I attended. I haven't yet had the opportunity to teach a kid long enough for them to move from middle school to high school but I'm hoping the day in near!

What does a normal practice session look like for you?
I typically start with the overtone series for warming up. It's sort of a stretch for my jaw muscles before I get into strengthening them. Scales (full range of the horn) to establish technique and control over my fingers. It's important to keep your fingers close to your horn while you're playing even when not pressing down a certain key. The closer your touch, the faster you're able to play. I usually end with playing along to tracks to help with my time and then sight reading a transcribed solo to end.

Does music run in your family? Tell us a little about your musical family members.
Music doesn't run in my immediate family. It does, however, have influence over a small group of cousins. The same cousin that inspired me to pick up the sax also sings and plays guitar. I learned a lot from him by learning from ear and not being intimidated by playing in front of others. I use to watch him perform with rock and funk bands. His dad is also the lead singer in his own band. They play often at different venues around the city I grew up in. Their family is a large part of my musical journey.

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.
