I recently signed up for piano and voice lessons with Julian and couldn't be happier with my experience so far. Julian is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
I've been taking guitar lessons at Page Music for over two years. They've do a great job of tailoring the instruction to my interests, abilitiy and available time as a working adult. The instructors that I have dealt have been skilled and very personable. In addition, they offer monthly jam supervised jam sessions for groups of students at several different ability levels. These are a blast. The general atmosphere is structured enough to provide a challenge, but low key and pressure free. I would highly recommend both the private lessons and jam sessions to any adult looking to begin or resume music lessons.
Stephanie Munoz was my saxophone teacher for five years and is an incredible teacher. Stephanie goes above and beyond to help you learn. She has an amazing passion for music. Stephanie was always on time and very organized. She helped expand my knowledge in music. Stephanie helped me learn and grow not just as a saxophone player but as a young adult.
My daughter began lessons on bass clarinet with Katelain when she entered high school. She helped her make the switch from clarinet to bass clarinet. She learned alternate fingerings which helped her play the more challenging pieces more easily. Katelain has a calm demeanor and is very pleasant. Katelain was also "therapy" during that frustrating freshman year when the music seemed so hard to play. The lessons and/or Katelain made my daughter a more confident player. If our younger daughter switches to clarinet or bass clarinet, we will definitely seek lessons from Katelain.
Mr. Dennis has both the ability and patience to teach students of all grades and competency level. He makes learning fun and my daughter looks forward to her Sax lessons every week. Mr. Dennis pro-actively puts music ensembles together to showcase his students work and boast their confidence. He also suggests outside programs for the kids that both challenges their comfort zones and expands their musical horizons.
Energetic, very knowledgable, able to change speeds to the level of the student needs to maximize lessons. Wonderful personality. Just seems to have great passion for this.
Renee got in contact with me immediately and provided me with an excellent piano/voice instructor for my 5 year old.
I only had a handful of lessons with Andrew, but the ones that I did were helpful and informative. He has a great personality and is easy to work with. His punctuality was something that I really appreciated. I would highly recommend Andrew!
Claudia Medina as your saxophone teacher is non-debatable! On top of her exceptional talent, she is extremely professional, reliable, punctual, passionate and most importantly, she is kind and fun! If you're looking to learn and/or improve while having a lot of fun doing so, then look no further than Claudia. You will not be disappointed!
Absolutely amazing instructor. Loved our lessons.
Thus far, I have had 4 lessons at Music Makers with a guitar instructor. I love the location and demeanor of the instructor, the price is right, and the scheduling options are also great. I am very happy with this find!
I am Mark Zhu, a saxophonist and composer in Boston. Born to a Chinese family in Kobe, Japan. My passion for music emerged during middle school. Rehearsing and Performing with Ashiya Wind Ensemble each weekend was the most exciting moment in my childhood. We mainly played classical, broadway musicals and pops arrangement in festivals and venues. After moving to Boston, Massachusetts, I started leading my Jazz group while attending Berklee College of Music. As a bandleader and sideman, I actively playing in Boston Jazz scenes. Last tour was playing as sideman with Kim Clarke, Wayne Escoffery and Ronnie Burrage in China in 2017. Performances include Dalian Arts College and Blue Note Beijing. Since May 2016, I am fortunate enough to have been mentored under Jazz Pianist Barry Harris.
I teach saxophone students of all ages and skill levels as well as beginning and intermediate clarinet students. I work closely with parents and students to customize instruction to meet your individual goals, while making the process fun and engaging. As a performer, I specialize in classical repertoire for the saxophone and transcriptions of work originally for other instruments.
My work stands out because I have learned from some of the best in my field. My teachers have taught me what it means to be a versatile and creative musician and they've shared their professional experiences with me. I've also traveled the world and experienced multiple facets of cultural music and understand the importance of music in the world. Performing worldwide has given me much experience and insight on the music industry and I feel there is much that I can share with my students.
Throughout my career, I have been in many bands and taught at various music studios throughout MA and NH. I have experience with students of all ages and skill levels. I currently teach private music lessons in the North Shore area as I continue to write and record my own music. In addition to drums and guitar, I also have experience teaching piano, bass, alto sax, flute and ukulele.
I am a young Music Education student with the desire to make a change in the lives of students by showing them their full potential and helping them realize the musician within themselves.
I currently teach at the Brookline Music School, Sharon Music Academy, and the Jordan/Jackson school in Mansfield. I also help take care of my parents' over 100-pound Black Lab.
I provide music lessons for the saxophone in different textures like alto, tenor and soprano. I have years of experience in performing, recording and teaching.
I am a saxophonist and reed player and teacher based in Boston. My aim as a teacher is to help students of any level reach their music-making goals.
I am a professor at Berklee College of Music, an MIT Affiliated Artist, a Harvard University MLSP instructor and a Rico Endorsed Artist. In addition, I teach online and privately in the Newton and Boston areas. I teach all aspects of woodwind technique, from beginner to professional, young and old and all styles of improvisation (including bop, modal, blues, fusion, smooth jazz, Latin, and classical). For improvisation, I feel that it is important to get a solid foundation of chords and scales and then to build from there. While this information is being absorbed, I teach you how to improvise using a unique system of written lines and customized play-alongs. For intermediate to advanced students, I stress various exercises which enable them to play improvisational techniques (chord tone soloing, bop scales, approaches notes, 3217/3517 lines and pentatonics, for example), over chord changes, with rhythmic accuracy and without getting lost. These exercises take the mystery out of improvisation by giving you concrete, logical and systematic approaches to improvising. Learning tunes, transcribed solos, ear training, vocabulary, instrumental technique and theory are also emphasized. Of course, I enjoy simply playing tunes and improvising with my students! As an active performer, a recording artist and a clinician, I have performed in Europe, St. Thomas, Martinique, Philippines, Barbados, Los Angeles, the southwest US and throughout New England. Through my international jazz correspondence lessons, I distance-teach improvisation and saxophone worldwide. My recordings include Cosmic Motion Picture with his own quartet, One by the Reed Dieffenbach Quartet, Homecookin'! (Reed Dieffenbach Quintet) and So Tru by Trudy Sandhaus, among others. A new solo album, Emanation, as well as an upcoming CD by Reed Dieffenbach are due out in 2013. In addition, I'm the author of Blues Improvisation Complete (Berklee Press and Hal Leonard), which is available in Bb, Eb, C and C bass clef, Famous Saxophone Solos from R&B, Pop and Smooth Jazz (Berklee Press and Hal Leonard), Great Tenor Saxophone Solos, Vol. 1 and 2, Great Smooth Jazz, R&B, and Pop Tenor Saxophone Solos, and Written Solos On Standard Tunes, Vol. 1 and 2. Essential Solos on Standard Progressions (Advance Music) is due out in 2013. Performing credits include touring as a featured soloist with the Gene Krupa Orchestra and performances with Milt Hinton, Ricky Ford, Makoto Ozone, Kenwood Denard, Bruce Gertz, Joe Hunt, Bob Gillotti, Bob Kaufman, Oscar Stagnaro, Rachael Z, George Schuller, Jon Damian, Billy Kilson, Ron Savage, Tim Rey, Vinny Golia, and Mike Turk among others. Locally, I freelance in the Boston area. I have studied saxophone, improvisation, composition, clarinet, flute and drums with Jerry Bergonzi, Joe Viola, George Garzone, Rick Margitza, Charlie Banocas, Andy Snitzer, John Mehegan, Jack Berky, George Russell, John La Porta, Arnie Lawrence, Jimmy Guiffre, Bob Moses, Bill Dixon, Barry Harris, Leon Russianoff, Ignatius Gennusa, Henry Brandt, Matt Marvuglio and Milford Graves. I have an M.M. from New England Conservatory of Music and a B.M. from Berklee College of Music, as well as additional undergraduate studies at The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, Manhattan School of Music and Bennington College.
