Overview:
I have been professionally playing saxophones since 1995. Through my career, I have encountered with many different kinds of music such as classical, jazz, r&b, pop, reggae, Brazilian, Haitian, Cape Verdean, Peruvian, Cuban to name a few. If you like to tackle an unfamiliar style of music, I can help you. I am a performer but also I am an educator who finds teaching very rewarding. I have had students of all ages and levels. It would be my pleasure to help you to have more fun playing the saxophone.
EXPERIENCE
You need a saxophone teacher if you want to learn the saxophone. You do not want a part time saxophone teacher whose focus is on another instrument. My first saxophone teacher was a fantastic musician. He was a great teacher and performer. I used to go to the lessons so excited. I just wanted to listen to his beautiful saxophone sound. I wanted to listen to him talk about music. I wanted to see him play. Without him, my career wouldn't have started. Now it is my turn. I would like to inspire you. I would like to make you look forward to the next lesson. I would like to pass on the joy of music that I have shared with so many people. I have performed with and for people of all ages and different backgrounds in various countries.
METHODS USED
I may use conventional method books or materials designed especially for you. Here are some areas I have the emphasis on. Sound; What does your voice sound like? What voice do you like to make through your saxophone? Listening; Listening is the area many teachers and students tend to overlook. However, listening is the essence of music. Repertoire; What tunes do you like to play? I can also suggest or select songs for you within your interest. Reading; Reading skill is very useful when you play with other musicians or you can't memorize a tune. Music notation is not very complicated. I will teach you how to read and write sheet music. Technic; The more technic you have, the more things you can play. Improvisation; Everyone can improvise. Let me help you to fly over music. Time; Steady time, variable time, rhythm Harmony; Why harmony? Even though saxophone is a monophonic (one pitch at a time) instrument, understand, listen, remember and forehear the harmony is also essential to have more fun out of music. Scales; Sounds boring? Wrong! It's actually fun to learn scales and use them. How? I will teach you in a comprehensive manner. Fun!; Let's have fun playing the saxophone!
LESSON STYLE
Each student has different methods that fit them. My job is to quickly find out the best way for each student. Have you been having trouble learning saxophone? No problem. I will guide you to learn how to learn. You don't know where to start? No problem. I will help you to set up short term goals, medium term goals, and long term goals. You think you need a little push? I can help you. Do you have perfectionist tendency? Yes, I can help you. I create a brand new method for you, only for you so that you can enjoy the beauty of Music!

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.
