Overview:

My name is Andrew, and I am a dedicated and passionate music instructor based in New York City. I graduated from Temple University in 2014 with a degree in Jazz Performance (Saxophone), and have had the privilege of working full-time since then as a performer and private educator. As a freelance woodwind player, I have had the opportunity to perform and record in a wide variety of musical styles and settings. In addition to backing up other artists in the jazz and pop worlds, I compose my own material and perform with my own group across the city.

EXPERIENCE

I began taking on private students while still in college at Temple University in Philadelphia. Although I was pursuing a degree in performance, taking on a studio of woodwind students while completing my studies helped me realize my passion for passing along my own knowledge and experience I have gained as a musician! Since then, I have maintained a regular teaching schedule combining both in-home and studio-based lessons. I am able to teach saxophone lessons of all levels, as well as beginner flute, clarinet, and piano lessons.

METHODS USED

I typically start beginner students on the Rubank Elementary Method books for saxophone, clarinet, or flute. These books are a great way to introduce the basic mechanics of the instrument, as well as reading music. I generally like to branch out from the method books as soon as possible, by supplementing the basic reading with other technical studies and pieces. For adults and more advanced students, I like to steer the focus more in the direction of what they want to learn, while still teaching the proper fundamentals of the instrument!

LESSON STYLE

I believe that lessons should be catered towards the unique musical goals of the individual. I take pride in finding new ways to teach proper fundamentals and habits in new students, that will ensure long-term success on their instrument, and allow them to explore whichever avenue in music they wish to pursue. For students interested in learning jazz, I emphasize ear training and rhythmic feel, while introducing more advanced theory and technical studies. For students interested in pop music, I am always happy to bring in sheet music for songs they might have heard on the radio that week. More than anything, learning music should be fun, and I hope to make taking lessons and enjoyable and memorable experience for students of all ages!

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.
