I have been teaching private lessons since 2010. I teach alto, tenor and baritone saxophone as well as Bb clarinet. Most of the time, I teach at students' homes, although I occasionally teach at Union Music (on Market St. in San Francisco).
With beginners, I focus on the fundamentals, such as learning how to read music (if necessary), creating a good tone, and and achieving efficiency of movement on the instrument.
With more advanced students, I continue to emphasize the importance of proper articulation and dynamics. The method books I use are accessible and very affordable. I also enjoy teaching students who wish to learn improvisation.
My rates are $85 for an hour-long lesson and $70 for a 45-minute lesson.
