I took piano lessons with Marissa - she was very flexible in terms of her schedule, and created a lesson plan around my learning goals. I've never played piano or sung before, but felt very comfortable to jump right in.
Have been taking clarinet and alto sax lessons with Andrew for years. Great teacher who is a master of his craft and is very dedicated to the progression of his students. Takes the time necessary to really help you learn and perfect all areas. He is very skilled in both jazz and classical and can really help his student develop in whichever way they desire. Would highly recommend to anyone who is serious about learning their instrument.
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.
Mario has been teaching sax to my 11-year old daughter for a little over a year now. I would highly recommend him without hesitation. From my daughter's perspective, she likes Mario because he picks fun pieces to play that also sound cool, picks lots of duets, has good methods for when I am having trouble with playing something such as repetitiveness, working backward, and playing a similar exercise, not only teaches me alternate fingerings for notes but also when to use them and why I need to know them, tells me a lot about the music theory of the sax between playing and is open to questions. From my perspective, his expert musicianship, his patient and thorough teaching, his flexibility and punctuality and his obvious love for music and sax are enough to make him an excellent choice for any student.
Zan has been teaching my middle school son how to play the alto saxophone for about a year and a half. My son has quickly learned from Zan how to read well and play with style and nuance. But that's just the half of it. In truth, my son is learning so much more from Zan. Zan doesn't just teach (and Zan's knowledge of music is truly vast); he truly cares about my son's interests and aptitude, and strives to engage with him on his level and in a way that inspires him to achieve his best musically, and to feel good about his playing and progress. Zan also inspires my son know and appreciate the beauty of music, so valuable for any music student. My science-minded son has never asked to not go to a music lesson (Zan is always upbeat and positive), or to not have to practice, though I suspect this would likely be the case with another teacher. This is because Zan has helped my son learn to appreciate both the effort that music demands and the reward it provides. What more could one expect to learn?

I am the only teacher I know who makes his students CDs of the recorded lessons. Also, I am the only teacher I know who still studies and works on improving my own playing ability. K
