America's Finest Son
Jeff was my saxophone teacher for four months. The only reason I stopped seeing him is that I moved out of state. Going in, I could not read music, and had never touched a saxophone in my life. I cannot overemphasize how much Jeff taught me in the past four months.Jeff is humble, unbelievably talented, well-versed in music theory, and personable. He is great at communicating schedule conflicts on his end (meaning he will give you 2+ weeks of heads up if he needs to reschedule), and is very conducive to understanding emergencies on your end. Jeff makes sure the lessons are structured such that you get what you want out of them. He doesn't have cookie cutter lessons that he pitches to all his students. If you want to learn to read music - great, he will teach you. If you want to learn more advanced music theory - great. Spend the whole hour working on your embouchure - great.Overall, I had a great experience with Jeff and would highly recommend him to aspiring musicians of all skill levels!Jun 21, 2018Review from Google
I've been playing saxophone for about 17 years, and I came to Jeff for help to take it to the next level. He met me where I'm at, and has quickly helped to fill in some holes in my knowledge in a way that has already changed things for me. Each lesson has been better and more productive than I expected. He's easygoing and fun to hang with, knows wind instruments, and is also a great person to talk to about where to go next in one's musical journey. I look forward to taking more lessons with Jeff.Aug 23, 2019Verified
Saxophone Lessons (for adults)
I've been taking saxophone lessons from Jeff for about a month, and it has been a great experience! Jeff is really easy to get along with and explains things very clearly and patiently. As an adult beginner, I've really appreciated how Jeff checks frequently to make sure that the pace of the lessons feels right. He also does a great job of assigning fun songs to work on in addition to the more technique/note-reading oriented exercises in the lesson book. I highly recommend Jeff!Feb 26, 2018Verified

Saxophone Lessons (for children or teenagers)
Jeff has been teaching Zach for 2 months now, and we have been very impressed and grateful to have met him. Jeff Miguel is very professional and easy to work with. Zach (11) is loving his saxophone lessons, and we think he is learning fast. He looks forward to his lesson every week.Jun 24, 2017Verified
