I work with students to build strong foundational saxophone skills and to learn how to play the songs they love on the saxophone. Some students may be preparing for auditions or other performances, in which case we'll work specifically towards those goals. I teach saxophone lessons both online and in person at my studio in San Diego, California. I hold a degree in Saxophone Performance from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and also studied saxophone at the University of Georgia. Although I specialize in teaching beginner saxophone lessons, I enjoy teaching students of all levels and all ages.
If you want playing the saxophone to feel as natural as singing in the shower, then this is the course for you! I teach all levels of students from beginner to advanced, with a heavy focus on transcription and ear training. Everything in my curriculum is designed to make playing easy, natural and fun. Whether you want to play like Charlie Parker or learn all of the Beatles' greatest hits, we'll work together to help you make the music you've always wanted to.
I teach saxophone lessons to students of all abilities, ages, and interests. A professional musician with a graduate degree from New England Conservatory, I offer online saxophone lessons that include instrumental technique, expression, and different styles of music. Ear training, sight reading, and rhythm are included as the student develops. Most importantly, studying any musical instrument is a fun and gratifying experience.
Tired of being frustrated by the pace of self-teaching or is your child bored with the progress in school band class? Are you an adult who never played an instrument but are really interested in learning a wind instrument? Not able to express yourself creatively or don't really understand why your favorite songs or styles of music work? Do you want a more hands-on way of teaching with personalized plans just for you? Learn how to play the Saxophone with Michael! Michael teaches a variety of instruments and subjects in the woodwind family: - Saxophone - Clarinet - Flute - Improvisation - Music Theory - Jazz Studies Michael creates versatile and fun lesson plans that incorporate learning your favorite music while teaching theory, improvisation, note reading, songwriting, or any other interests! He has an easy-to-follow, fun, but yet structured and thorough plan designed for results to help the student reach their goals, rather than imposing an one-size-fits-all plan just from lesson books! Michael teaches anyone from kids to adults and seniors and encourages all students to be creative while really understanding the music they play. Michael incorporates classical and traditional music into lesson programs alongside modern styles to create diverse and interesting repertoire!
It was an honor and a pleasure working with Gwen. Due to personal circumstances, I had to stop working with her, but I highly recommend her as an instructor. She's very knowledgeable, accommodating,
