I’m currently accepting applications for interested students aged 8 through adult. Lessons are tailored to the tastes and needs of each student, with traditional method books rarely used once the basics are under control. Instruction is based on a strong working knowledge of scales. The informed use of these scales leads to a heightened understanding of improvisation, ear training, and other practical aspects of music theory. Students are encouraged to choose from a variety of jazz standards and transcriptions, classical themes, and pop tunes that I’ve transcribed and engraved. Songs not already included in the Print Music Index
can be transcribed on request, usually within a week. Rudimentary instruction is also available for saxophonists wishing to learn flute and/or clarinet.
