Michael is a great teacher and I look forward to my clarinet lessons each week. He is patient and explains the technical parts of playing very clearly. He gives good tips and teaches at an appropriate pace.
Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.
Conor has been a great guitar teacher for me and my playing has improved a lot by working with him so far!
Matthew is very professional musician. He took a lot of time to assist me preparing a very special song list for my husband's birthday dinner party. My family really enjoyed themselves especially because of his soulful sounds from playing the saxophone. He was mesmerizing. And, we're going to invite him back in the near future. Thanks, Matthew!
Laura has given me saxophone lessons for many years. I find her approach very helpful to me, and she also takes into consideration what I am working on. She gives me lessons on Skype or in person, and we play a lot during the lesson, utilizing the theme of the current lesson. For example, if I was working on a blues in every key, she would have me review the blues structure, then play the head and solo on it in a few keys. If she was demonstrating how to deal with two chord changes with common chord tones, she would have me play the tune with that in mind as I solo on it. Rhythmically we are working on Brazilian rhythms currently, so she is having me work on some bossas using the specific samba or bossa rhythm during my solo. I start with vocally doing the rhythm, and then do it on the sax using one note, and then do it with the chord scale, eventually doing a solo in the rhythm I am trying to master at the time.I take away a lot every time I have a lesson, and enjoy working on the assignments she gives me.
Highly recommend Jim - enthusiastic, knowledgable and patient teacher of the Saxophone. I am thoroughly enjoying my lessons.
Jack makes everything fun and easy to learn. I’ve been going to his lessons for 4 months, yet it feels like it’s been longer because of the improvement and how well he connects with everyone. He is incredibly talented and has years of experience and knowledge of drums. I love his lessons and I would definitely reccoment him to anyone interested in learning.
Do not hesitate to work with Ken, he is a wonderful teacher! My 14-year old son has been taking alto sax lessons with Ken for over a year and will be entering high school in September. I can see Ken being a long-term fixture during my son's high school years. Ken is incredibly talented and loves to share his knowledge and experience with his students. He does it very well. He is VERY easy to work with and he has a great sense of humor, which my son loves. My son very much enjoys his lessons. In working with my son, Ken has upped my son's "game" in so many ways and I can't wait to see what the future holds musically for him. Ken came highly recommended to me and for good reason. He opens up new worlds and new doors for his students. He is very invested in his students' lessons and wants the best for them. If you have the opportunity to work with Ken, take it.
Francesco is absolutely great! Besides being one of the best saxophone players I've ever heard, he's a very good teacher. He gave me many good tips for the saxophone technique and for improvisation, he's nice, patient, and he really motivated me to practice. His knowledge of music is very large, so I would recommend him to other students of any level and for any type of music.
I studied saxphone and Jazz Music Theory privately with Allan for 5 years. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding Saxophone and Flute technique and also has a great familiarity with the piano. But aside from his technical excellence, he is outstanding teacher which in many ways is more important than technical knowledge. This means he can explain concepts and provide examples that are appropriate for a student's playing level which allows them to progess in a linear fashion, maintain their interest in music and bolster their confidence. He is also very patient, supporitve and enthusiastic about music; characteristics that are so important in creating a constructive learning environment. I highly recommend him.
My two children (ages 7 and 12) have been taking guitar lessons from Jonah for the last year and we have nothing but good things to say about him! He brings such joy to his teaching and is so patient with them both. They have made incredible progress in the last year! He gives lots of positive feedback and is so easy to work with. Would definitely recommend him!
Logan is nothing short of an outstanding teacher. I have 10-15 years of playing background, but hadn't picked up my saxophone in years and was badly in need of some instruction. After I started taking lessons with Logan, I quickly realized I couldn't have found a better teacher. Logan did a great job of quickly assessing my musical background, current skill level, and priorities/goals going forward. His technical ability and all-around musical knowledge are all off the charts - this guy really knows his way around a saxophone, and is a serious composer to boot. He's been playing on the national and international jazz circuits since high school and (if I remember correctly) furthered his musical training at the New England Conservatory. He brings an infectious energy to every lesson that makes them fun, exciting and really fruitful. Whether you are trying to learn basics from the ground up or want to get into the deeper levels of musical theory/improvisation/composition, Logan is more than qualified. I guess in closing I would say that after taking lessons with lots of other teachers over the years before finding Logan, he is (in my opinion) the ideal combination of top-level chops AND theoretical knowledge, while still being personable and making every lesson a blast. It's only a matter of time before this guy's career as a player blows up, so if you're at all on the fence about lessons, snag a lesson with this guy before he's onto other things, and (re)discover the joy of saxophone.
I think Julie is an awesome teacher. I'm in my 20's and was looking for someone to teach me the saxophone. I was a total beginner, and Julie was so patient from the beginning. During each lesson, Julie taught me new things while enforcing the ideas she taught the previous lessons so that I would work on perfecting one skill while learning a new one, which encouraged me to continue practicing and working on the skills. Overall, I think Julie is a wonderful amd talented teacher that really knows how to teach each student on their own level, and I'm so grateful to have taken lessons with her.
I have enjoyed my experience with Daniel! He has been very flexible with my busy schedule, and was helpful with clarifying my goals for taking lessons. His studio is conveniently located in Manhattan and provides a bright, welcoming atmosphere for learning. I plan to continue my lessons with him for the foreseeable future, and certainly recommend his teaching to music learners of all levels!
Noel was very responsive and easy going when setting up the first meeting. He was very kind and patient in explaining everything, starting from the very basics (this was my first lesson with no prior experience and very little-to-no knowledge about notes etc) what kind of mouthpiece to purchase, how to put it on correctly, the basics of the instrument itself etc. The lesson felt very comfortable and informative. Noel was friendly and encouraging and seemed very experienced and passionate about the sax and teaching the magical musical ways! I'm looking forward to our next lesson together
Very good teacher
My students learn about performing all styles of music as well as developing the ear and learning musicality. Most score highly in NYSMA competitions.
Jon is an AWESOME teacher!!! I can't believe how fast I am improving since starting lessons about 6 months ago. I got to a page in my book that I got stuck on with my old teacher. It took Jon 5 minutes to see what I was doing wrong, told me and then I could do it instantly! John is a really cool Australian who is always really nice and funny but he also holds me to high standards. I started saxophone two years ago for my middle school big band coz they needed anyone to fill the chair but now I practice every day or most of them anyway because I like it and want to be good for Jon. Jon is the man!
