I have been taking saxophone lessons with Joshua Shneider for about two months. I could not be happier. He has a great temperament for teaching. I have made great strides in a short time due to his ability to recognize what I am capable of and push me past it without overwhelming. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to strengthen their technical skill and broaden their theoretical understanding.
I knew I had chosen the best piano teacher for my daughter when she said, "I don't want to leave!! I want to come back for another lesson tomorrow!!". Tammy Ying is a gem. Not only is she an incredibly talented musician, it's also apparent that she is great with young children. My 6 year old daughter left her first lesson excited and anxious to practice. After only the third lesson, she was able to play a song with both hands, which makes her feel very accomplished! Tammy uses age appropriate piano books and takes the time to jump to specific song lessons to fit my daughter's skill level. Tammy is very easy to communicate with via text for a quick response which is invaluable for parents on the go the timing of little ones to drop off/pick up... in my case a 6 year old and a 3 year old...(future student perhaps??). You will get everything you've hoped for in a piano teacher with Tammy!
Highly recommend Jim - enthusiastic, knowledgable and patient teacher of the Saxophone. I am thoroughly enjoying my lessons.
Very professional and caring. Generous with the time and paying attention to the necessities of the student.
We just had our first session with Nick and he is terrific! My son has really been struggling with clarinet for the past year and Nick was really patient and constructive.
My son took saxophone lessons from Nathan a couple years back. Nathan has a way of pushing students to their potential but still makes it fun for them and want to continue playing. I would recommend Nathan to any level woodwind player or anyone interested in jazz.

Chris Cuzme specializes in saxophone performance and saxophone instruction of all ages and all levels. With a heavy background in jazz and classical, Cuzme provides the formal training required to master your instrument and develop a voice of your own. His goal is to teach people to teach themselves the art of improvisation and effortless mastery through critical thinking while never abandoning the primary concept that music is meant to be fun and expressive. As a teacher, he hopes to become as useless as possible as soon as possible. His motto: learn everything and forget it as soon as possible. "Music is a language. When someone says the word 'can't', they don't think 'I'm going to take the word can and not, drop an O, scrunch it together, throw in an apostrophe and then say 'can't'! They simply say the word because they mean to say it. Music and improvisation is the same concept. Do not think about the notes; hear the melody, and say the melody."

Professional lessons on Saxophone, either Alto, Tenor, or Soprano offered from a graduate of Manhattan School of Music. Lessons could be in either Jazz, Classical, Funk, Blues or anything in between. Students could range from complete beginners to experts looking to refine their playing. Also offering lessons on Flute or Clarinet for saxophone players looking to double, or vice versa (teacher also plays piano, so we can jam if student is capable). Experienced in teaching and offering hour or 1/2 hour lessons at a very fair prices ($40/hour, 25/half hour). Would like to do lessons uptown, but willing to go to student's house (have means of going outside the city as well). A very friendly personality with a wealth of playing experience, lessons promise to be fun but also very beneficial for student's musical growth with emphasis on the importance of discipline needed if one wants to be a true virtuoso.

I have been an active music educator for 5 years. I currently hold a bachelor of arts in music education, and am currently working on a master's degree in music education. I teach in both public and private schools where I run several instrumental music programs, as well as teaching private lessons outside of the schools. I provide 45-minute lessons once a week to your child, where we will cover technique, music theory, and performance skills. Not only do I gear my lessons around standard music practice, but I also like to encourage students to select music that they are interested in playing, so that they can get further enjoyment out of their lessons. Please contact me with any questions. I'm looking forward to working with you and your child.
