Do you live in Abbotsford or Surrey? Are you looking for a saxophone or clarinet teacher for yourself, or for your son or daughter? I currently have a limited number of openings in my teaching schedule in both locations.
Besides holding a master’s degree in adult education, I have been teaching music to students and adults alike for more than 20 years. I also work closely with band teachers and students in a number of school districts throughout the Fraser Valley region. Additionally, I am also a gigging musician; front my own band; and play in a number of groups in and around the region.
The lessons in Surrey will be available at Matterhorn Music. I will be teaching there one day a week—most likely Saturdays, although that is yet to be confirmed.
Lessons are individually tailored for a student’s playing level; needs; and interests.
Lessons range from:
- How to put your instrument together correctly.
- How to form a proper embouchure.
- How to put the reed on correctly.
- Breaking all the bad habits that you’ve developed.
- Helping with school playing assignments.
- Concert vs. jazz band styles.
- Phrasing & articulation practice.
- Music theory basics.
- Different ways of improvising.
- Advancing & getting ready for those dreaded college auditions.
- Etc, etc. etc….
Lessons are available for: soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophone, as well as Bb and bass clarinet.
