    Jim Piela Sax, Clarinet, Flute, Improvisation, and Composition for Lessons or Performance

    (7 reviews)

    When it comes to teaching music, I've always been supremely open-minded and unjudgemental. To me, each student, no matter their age or level, is a unique individual, with unique and individual obstacles and issues. Along with my high level of academic success, I have also approached music from a very personal perspective, which I encourage all of my students to do as well. If you want to work from a standardized curriculum, following a preset program, I may not be a teacher for you. If you want individual attention, and a true mentorship experience, please consider me. I've always been inspired by the students that I teach. I consider myself a lifetime student, just the same as my students, perhaps just a little further down the road. Having a student discover something new is always exciting.

    Ian Buss Music

    (5 reviews)

    Hi, my name is Ian and I have been playing music professionally since 2006 and teaching since 2009. I've performed at a variety of venues, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Bowl, and Joe's Pub. I've also led performances at private events. A graduate of the New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music, I am building up my private studio. I am available to teach lessons at a rehearsal studio location, your home, or online. I have worked with students who are looking to enjoy learning more about music as well as those who are preparing for important auditions and performances, including NYSSMA. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and skill levels. When working with children and adolescents, I create a structured learning environment and provide comprehensive instruction in instrumental technique, musicianship, and music theory. With adults, I teach the fundamentals of the saxophone, reading music, and the concepts of playing by ear. As these skills develop, we explore the styles of music that inspire you to play. I am familiar with many styles, including Jazz, Rock, Pop, Latin, and Classical. I have studied under Reggie Workman, Billy Harper, Bobby Sanabria, Kirk Nurock, and many others and developed expertise in saxophone, improvisation, and composition (classical, jazz, rock, and pop). I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I own both an alto and a tenor saxophone and am happy to work with students who play other saxophones. If you do not yet have a saxophone, I can sometimes arrange to have one available for you to use during the lesson, but I need to know in advance. Eventually, you will need your own instrument to practice. I am always happy to help students with saxophone rentals and purchases! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all about lessons or acquiring an instrument. I'd be happy to work with you!

    Music Lessons with Dennis

    (4 reviews)

    My students have performed in Carnegie Hall and won many contests in city/state festivals. Testimonials show that kids love to work with me and are inspired to practice by the music I give them and the concerts I organize for them. I enjoy inspiring others to develop a skilled craft in music that they can be proud of. The investment of time and energy in music makes them more confident and develops a self-motivated work ethic that is carried across the disciplines. My students all excel in academics and sports as well as music and arts, and seeing that progress is the joy I get from this work.

    Nick's Jazz, Woodwind, and Composition Lessons

    (3 reviews)

    I am a versatile musician with extensive training in a conservatory setting as well as in the field. As a jazz major at the Eastman School of Music, I had to undergo two years of classical training in addition to jazz performance requirements. I also earned a music education degree that involved over 400 hours of field experience as well as 100 hours of observation. I have played classical performances in concert halls, rock performances at various party functions, and jazz performances at more than 20 different clubs in Rochester, Boston, and NYC. I believe that a good teacher knows how to adapt a lesson plan to fit a student's needs. I enjoy this challenge, and I love seeing students grow musically.

    Teaching: I have taught saxophone, flute and clarinet to students of all ages and abilities for over 8 years now. My goal for students is to have fun, grow as a musician and to instill in them the joy of hard work that music can bring. I focus on building the student's foundational skills. I believe that a strong foundation is important to reaching higher goals later in one's musical journey. We will center our work on making the music fun and easy to play! Performance: I have performed professionally in many different contexts for over 10 years now, including jazz groups, classical, weddings, pit orchestras, big bands, new music settings, solo, art exhibitions, etc. I lead my own quintet and quartet which features original compositions.

  • Professional Saxophone Lessons

    Matthew Chiasson

    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.

  • Saxophone Lessons For All Levels

    Chris Cuzme

    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."

    Private Clarinet and Saxophone Lessons

    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.
