Overview:
My name is Norbert. I am a saxophonist, flutist, clarinetist, composer, arranger, and teacher. I also run a small recording studio where I personally do all of the recording, mixing, and mastering for all kinds of projects. My professional musical experience includes performances and recordings with artists including Tower Of Power, Sheila "E", Prince, Freddie Hubbard, Roy Hargrove, Roger Waters, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Diana Ross, Boz Scaggs, Wallace Roney, Zigaboo Modeliste, D’Angelo, Billy Joel, Flora Purim & Airto, Les McCann, Charlie Haden, Benny Green, Don Cherry, Dream Theatre, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Aerosmith, En Vogue, and many others.
EXPERIENCE
I would very much like the opportunity to share my 40 + professional years of accumulated knowledge and experience with music students of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds. I teach all saxophones, flute, & clarinet lessons specializing in Classical, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Soul, Afro/Cuban, Klezmer, and World Music. I have been teaching private lessons for over 25 years. I have taught master classes in colleges, universities, high schools, middle schools, grammar schools, and music stores all over the world.
METHODS USED
I teach either in my home or yours using a 1 on 1 approach focusing on confidence and control, personal solo voice and style development, and versatility and ensemble skills. I also help with ear training, harmonic knowledge, rhythmic accuracy, tone development, and all nuances of musicality. I design a specific lesson program to address each unique student’s weaknesses and strengths, as well as honing in on the student’s individual musical goals and interests. Written materials will be used, as well as specific question/answer and demonstration/explanation techniques. I don’t force my own style on any student! My goal as your teacher is to help you find your own personal voice and to help you get ready to embark on your own personal music journey! I also introduce and nurture the student's devolopment and understanding of traditional techniques used for mastering all of the aforementioned musical styles. The written study materials used are not provided for free and must be purchased at your expense. I suggest certain books to work out of, but I can work with you using the materials that you are presently practicing with or want to work out of.

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.
