Teaching Style

I am a true believer that fundamentals are most important for students. Additionally, I hope to teach students how to express and identify their personalities through music making. Saxophone is a vibrant instrument, and is perhaps the youngest instrument in an orchestra. The modern saxophone repertoire is limited in comparison to piano or violin repertoire. However, one of the beauties being a saxophonist is to arrange or transpose a score from other instruments and to perform it on saxophone.
