Students love coming to their lessons! With teachers who are fun and encouraging, our number one goal at the studio is to make lessons a positive and fun experience for students.
Watch your child build confidence while having fun and developing a unique skill.
Or imagine being able to play your favorite songs for your family and friends during the holidays, with ease and enjoyment!
Not only do music lessons foster creativity and appreciation for the arts, but learning music has real implications on improving brain development, mental acuity, and intelligence. Read More.
During lessons each week, students are guided and coached towards achieving their goals.
What ages do you accept?
We love teaching both children and adults, from beginning to advanced students.
Students can begin learning saxophone at the age of 7 or 8 years old.
What Styles Do You Teach?
Our saxophone teacher has training in various styles of music.
In lessons students learn:
Embouchure (the way you shape your lips and use facial muscles) is fundamental for producing a good tone on the saxophone. Students will learn how to form their embouchure to create a clear and resonant sound.
Fingering and Technique
How to read sheet music and apply music theory
Care and maintenance of your instrument
How often and how long are lessons?
Lessons are generally once a week and we offer 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute time slots. The lesson length that is ideal will depend on the age of the student and their goals. For young beginning students under the age of 10, a thirty-minute is ideal. For older or more advanced students, we generally recommend a longer lesson time to allow time for more questions, discussions, and cover more repertoire.
We recommend consistent weekly lessons. Consistency is one of the most powerful habits for students to develop for musical success.
Coming to lessons every week ensures that students don't lose ground on the progress they've made and that bad habits don't have time to take hold.
What progress should I expect?
For experienced students, your teacher will be getting a sense of your learning style, goals, and making a plan for your learning path and keep building upon the experience you already have.
While everyone learns and understands musical concepts at a different pace, here is a general guideline for the progress beginning students should expect to make:
During your first few months, lessons will be all about setting the foundation. Lessons are generally focused on the basics of technique, breathing, assembling your saxophone, proper hand and finger placement, easy rhythms, and learning sheet music. Students will also begin to learn about articulation and tonguing techniques such as starting and stopping notes using the tongue to create different articulations.
After 6 months, students should start seeing noticeable improvement in tone production, producing a clearer, more controlled, and resonant sound with better breath control and embouchure. Students should also have expanded their range, comfortably playing high and low notes, developing a better sense of rhythm, and learning different articulation techniques, including single tonguing, double tonguing, and slurring.
Do I need a Saxophone?
Yes, you will need your own instrument to bring to lessons and for practice during the week between lessons as well.
We recommend renting one to start off with if you're unsure, and purchasing a good student instrument after some experience. You can get recommendations from your teacher.
But what if...
We've often heard reasons why a student thinks they can't learn an instrument:
My fingers are... too short, too long, and even too fat!
I have... learning difficulties, short memory, bad eyesight
But we're here to tell you that very little will prevent you from being able to learn an instrument if it's your wish.
Let us help you overcome your barriers and make music for yourself!
