ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

Overview:
I primarily teach the saxophone to younger students, and in this area I emphasize the fundamentals of tone production and the development of the musical imagination. My thinking here is simple: if you understand how the instrument works and you can imagine how something should sound, it takes only a matter of experimentation and diligence to achieve your goals. If the student is prepared to do this, I am there as an enthusiastic supporter and facilitator.
EXPERIENCE
Since 2005, I have been teaching saxophone and clarinet privately to students of all ages, with a high rate of retention in recent years. I have also been appointed as saxophone instructor at San Francisco State University where am instructing college-level saxophone players.
METHODS USED
For beginning students, I usually start with the Rubank Elementary Method. Having established the fundamentals, I like to introduce the student to a series of etudes and more challenging repertoire as the student develops. For adult students, I like to find out what they are intersted in and work from there, but I still stress fundamentals.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style involves a lot of listening, both on my part and on the student's. I like to listen to a student play, give them feedback, then listen again in an effort to get the student to listen as well.

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.

Ok
