    Hey Everyone, As the title says, I'm looking for an instructor to help me get back into playing sax (apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place!). Here's some short background: I started playing Alto when I was in the 4th grade and played consistently through high school, taking lessons all...

    Hi, SOTW! Since I hadn't officially done so on this forum yet, I thought I'd announce that I'm teaching some private lessons once again since I finally have a proper home studio environment. (One of the big perks of relocating back to Austin after years in New York City!) Here's a little slice...

    Can anyone recommend a flute teacher in or near Agoura Hills / Thousand Oaks / West Lake, northwest of Los Angeles? The prospective student (my brother) played saxophone many years ago in high school. So he has basic musical literacy, but is a beginner on flute. Thanks for any suggestions.
  6. Training Material
    Some weeks ago I registered for an online music school: ArtistWorks.com Eric Marienthal is the teacher in the jazz saxophon department and it's not expensive: less than 35 $ per month. I have access to his whole range of study materials and a curriculum from first beginner to not too advanced...

    Are there any teachers or schools in Westchester or the Bronx who offer affordable lessons for low-income adult learners? So far I've looked at a few music schools and the prices are a complete fantasy for me -- I also haven't been able to find many private instructors in the area. I played...

    I'm coming to the sax as a beginner, fulfilling a dream, but with no experience on this instrument, minimal knowledge of jazz, and a smattering of previous theory and musical experience on several instruments - none of which I play well. I'm here for the enjoyment of making music, with no...

    I've been taking saxophone lessons for a few weeks and I would like some thoughts on whether or not the following techniques are correct. 1) Use less mouthpiece. The amount of mouthpiece I take in is probably up to where the reed and mouthpiece touch. He constantly tells me to use less. Less as...

    Hi, I've been learning the alto sax for the past year and a half and am getting bored playing by myself. I thought playing in a community band might be fun and give me the chance to interact with other musicians as well. Does anyone know of any accepting community bands in the San Francisco bay...

    Hello all, I've recently decided to start pushing for students as the performance side of things just doesn't bring in enough on it's own. Has anybody got any pointers on the best places to advertise? Perhaps there's some good websites out there or there are good techniques to get noticed...
