Saxophone Lessons (Ages 8+)
Just like all of our teachers, our saxophone teachers are university trained and able to teach a wide variety of styles such as jazz, classical, pop and more. In a saxophone lesson, students will learn the fundamentals of reading music, rhythm and breathing control, while playing songs they want to play.

What Are Your Rates?
We've learned that every music teacher is different, and each has different skills. Some have Masters degrees, while others are still students themselves. For this reason, we've given the teachers the ability to set their own rates when they are hired based on their skills. The rates for saxophone lessons range from $22.00 to $25.00 for a 30 minute lesson.
Is 30 Minutes Enough?
For beginners the answer is definitely yes. When you are first learning, you're getting a lot of new, and in some cases, confusing information given to you. The amount of information given in one 30 minute lesson will give you a lot to work on as you practice throughout the week. Practicing is absolutely essential to learning music. As you get to more advanced skills, more time may be necessary if and when your teacher recommends it.
How Long Will It Take To Learn?
We get asked this question a lot. There is no specific date, or number of lessons. It depends on a few things including how often students practice. Although the songs may be very simple, we know we can have students playing at least one short song within 30 days. If you are hoping to play Mozart, it will take more time. But anyone can do it if they want it enough or work hard enough.
What Do I Need To Start?
Students will need a saxophone to learn on. We can provide students with a saxophone to rent or to purchase. Students will also need reeds, which we can also provide. Other accessories may be recommended by the teacher, but are not required for learning to play. The teacher will also provide a lesson book to be purchased at the first lesson. Please avoid purchasing a book before the first lesson since the book you purchase may be different than the one the teacher recommends.
