My son and his classmate took saxophone lessons with Andrew to be ready for Fall Band in 5th grade. He is straight forward and they learned fast from him. I highly recommend him.
I've been taking saxophone lessons from Mario for close to 2 years now; I am an adult (complete) beginner with limited time to practice. I have learned a lot from my lessons with Mario (of course, if I practiced more I would make faster progress, but music has to take a back seat to my other obligations) and I will be continuing to take lessons with him. I definitely recommend Mario - he listens to you play and shows and tells you what you are doing wrong and how to correct it. Elements such as embouchure, tone quality, articulation, sense of rhythm, etc, are things for which you really need a teacher by your side who can observe you and show you where and how you need to improve, and Mario really helps me in these areas.
Tara was great, she works with a nice group of piano and guitar teachers and we were able to find a few different options that were a good match for my kids. She's very flexible, communicative and helpful.
Mark Sowlakis has been an excellent saxophone and clarinet teacher for both of our sons. Our older son started taking saxophone lessons with Mark when he was in middle school and studied with him through high school. Our younger son began clarinet lessons with Mark about seven years ago. In middle school he decided to take up the saxophone so he could join the jazz band. Mark was able to teach him both instruments. Our sons always enjoyed their lessons with Mark and he really helped bring out their best musical talents. In addition, he has always been flexible with scheduling lessons. Most recently he has accommodated our requests for help with music scholarship applications and auditions.
I have taken bass lessons from a handful of instructors over the years. Ariane is different. She has explained things to me that I have either never heard or never understood in new ways that help me to connect the dots. She makes the lessons fun and always challenges me and encourages me to stretch myself while giving me to the tools to do so. Do not hesitate to give hear a test drive.
Jeremy is a consumate musician, whose fluency and creative imagination on the saxophone place him among the most gifted exponents of the instrument. He plays all genres of music with utter ease, with perfect intonation, and exquisite nuancing, As a teacher, Jeremy is gentle, patient, professional, punctual and masterful in helping his students learn how to navigate the intricacies of sound production. In working with Jeremy, as he helps them hone their technical skills and develop the art of deep listening, his students are soon able to find their unique voices, play the music they love, and express themselves , with full confidence, on their instrument.
I am visibly United States from India and was hoping to take few saxophone lessons while I'm here cause there is hardly anyone who teaches saxophone there. Georgianna was really helpful. She gave me useful exercises to develop my tone as well as helped me with all my queries. I'll definitely recommend her.
Lawrence Rhodes helped my 10 year old son with saxophone lessons this summer. He is a wonderful teacher that focuses on details and repetition. With Lawrence's help my son really improved his sax skill and the quality of music/sound he produces. Lawrence is very patient with his students and was very flexible in scheduling lessons. We were really lucky to find him and I hope to hire him again in the future.
John has been tutoring the saxophone to my mid-schooler for the last year. During that time, I've found him to be very patient, personable, and respectful. Our son continues to enjoy music class in school (while some of his peers have stopped playing) and has shown progression is his ability to play pieces that require higher skill.
He played my friends wedding as a solo saxophonist it was outstanding!!!!!!!
