Learn bassoon or saxophone from a certified Music Educator with 9+ years of experience.
I teach how to make your own double reeds as well as how to improve your technique on bassoon. I have been teaching private music lessons for just over 9 years. My primary instrument is bassoon and my secondary is saxophone but I play all woodwind instruments. I have taught K-5 Elementary music the past year, Early Childhood music through Gymboree, Imagine Music and Arts, and The Goddard School. I was also a director of the University of Oklahoma New Horizons Band. I have performed with symphonies such as The Fort Collins Symphony, Tulsa Symphony, and Oklahoma City Philharmonic. I am certified to teach both instrumental and vocal music K-12 in Oklahoma and Colorado. I have taught 6-12 band and orchestra during my years in Oklahoma. I have been teaching private music lessons online for almost 2 years.
About Jared S.

I have been teaching bassoon and saxophone for just over 9 years. I am currently a sub for the Fort Collins Symphony, and have performed or been invited to perform with other professional symphonies such as the Norman Philharmonic and the Oklahoma City Repertory Theater. I am certified to teach K-12 music and was teaching Elementary music for the past year in Evergreen and Morrison, CO. I have taught Early Childhood music, Elementary music, Middle School and High School Band and Orchestra as well as community bands such as the New Horizons Band in Norman, OK. I am originally from Owasso, OK and received both my Music Education and Music Performance (woodwind) degrees from The University of Oklahoma. I moved to Lafayette, CO a year ago with my cat, Luna, and girlfriend, Kristen, who is getting her master's degree in Clarinet Performance/Pedagogy at CU Boulder. A few hobbies I have recently started getting into are archery and coding! At the end of 7th grade I will start making parts of some of our lessons “reed lessons” to get my students a start at adjusting and maybe even making their own reeds! I teach all my students the basics of practicing so that they can become their own teacher. Bassoonists have 2 instruments: The Bassoon, and The Bassoon double reed. I hope I can help you share your passion with others through your music-making!
