About Alex Hoffman

hired 3 times on Thumbtack

I offer jazz and saxophone lessons for beginning to advanced levels. My expertise includes jazz harmony, jazz improvisation and saxophone techniques.

Some of my experience in the jazz world includes recording with and playing in the bands of Grammy award-winning trumpeter Brian Lynch, leading my own groups at leading NYC jazz clubs such as Smalls and Fat Cat, and being selected as a semi-finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition.

I am also a graduate of NYU.

    I Found Alex on here and was super excited to kick off saxophone lessons. We had agreed on a rate for a 1 hour weekly lesson.
    I enjoyed my first lesson and was looking forward to progress. Then things took a turn and Alex texted me, with a different demand surrounding payment. Different from what we had agreed upon in the very beginning. Sadly we were unable to continue lesson under his new demand as I was not comfortable paying 10 lessons in advance in cash. It would be a different story if you are paying a program fee at an institute.
    Handing over a significant sum of money to someone I had yet to establish a relationship with did not sit well with me.
    I would advise Alex to be for transparent and clear from the very beginning, to avoid disappointing people and wasting their time.
    As I only had 1 lesson as a reference of his actual services, I would say the overall experience was average. Mostly a waste of time.

    Alex has been teaching my son saxophone for a few months now. Alex is a wonderful teacher, inspiring and patient. He has a great ability to communicate the excitement of Jazz and make learning saxophone a joy from the very first lesson. My son looks forward to his lesson every week and is never disappointed. They played music together from the very first day. Alex also encourages my son to explore Jazz by bringing him choice recordings of great players. But most impressive of all is that my son can hear his teacher play live in New York City Jazz clubs. It is really a dream come true to have found a brilliant young professional jazz musician who is also such a gifted teacher. My son is truly lucky to have Alex as his teacher.
