  1. Teaching
    So, this is a rather lengthy topic I believe. I have been teaching on and off for some time now. Over the past year and half/two years, as my son became more serious about playing, I have even been working with him as he finishes out high school. In the midst of the conversations we have, there...
  2. Eb Alto
    As it says in the title, I’ve been asked as part of my job to play sax and teach a bit about jazz in a music appreciation class for people with developmental disabilities. I’ve been working on a set list with old favorites like Take the A Train and Take 5, but I was hoping you all might have...

    Hello everyone! My name is Vincent and I'm a private saxophone/clarinet teacher for the counties listed in the title. I am currently vaccinated so I'm opening my studio for in-person lessons but I still teach virtually through Skype, Zoom, and Facebook if anyone isn't comfortable with in-person...
  4. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    For the past seven years, I have only been studying Classical music mainly on Alto. I recently completed my rounds of College auditions, where I auditioned with the Glazunov Saxophone Concerto if that gives you an idea of my playing ability. I decided to do a 180 and study jazz at the College of...

    I've asked this question in a few different places and have gotten lots of different responses, so I figured I'd put it here as well! My questions are this: Do you think one needs to be a great player to be a great teacher? Do you think one needs to be a great musician to be a great teacher...

    Hey everyone! Here is episode 3 of my series "How to NOT SUCK at Teaching Music!" In this episode I talk about the concept of "never stop learning" and how we can keep growing and learning as educators. Let me know what you think!
  8. Jazz and Improvisation
    I'm not sure where / which category this would be best to post in, and, I wasn't able to find a prior thread on this. I hope its not too redundant. I'm looking for recommendations or reviews from people who have done lessons on line. I'd like to know especially why and what made them...

    Hey everyone! I'm back with another episode in my series called "How to NOT SUCK at Teaching Music." In this episode I talk about the concept of "one size fits all" and how we as educators can avoid it. Let me know what you think!!

    Hi, I'll be in Canada starting 1st August 2016 for 3 weeks. I am from India and started playing saxophone few months back through skype lessons and YouTube as there is no saxophone teacher here so was hoping to take few lessons while I'm there. I'll be mostly busy with work but planning to...
  12. Teaching
    I'm wondering what peoples thoughts are when comparing online lessons vs. in-persons. Obviously in-person is the ideal choice, but if you can receive lessons online via videos and Skype lessons, do you think it would create greater access for people to have a chance to learn an instrument?

  15. Teaching
    I'm a freshman in college and I could really use a little extra money here to help my mom out with expenses. I'm in the Applied Music program at my college, which basically means the college sponsors private lessons for me. I auditioned on flute, which I've only been playing for a year and...

    A professor of neuroscience writes in Psychology Today about: What All Teachers Should Learn from Jazz-band Teachers I think he's got some worthy observations here!

    Hi all, I recently wrote a blog/article on 'Reflections and observations of a woodwind teacher' and thought some of you might enjoy reading it. It's fairly humorous in places so might give you a giggle!; There's also a four part blog on practicing deeper...
  18. Teaching
    Hey all, I've seen a lot of threads riffing about 'what do I teach?' and can understand the the theory that a teacher should already know what to teach, BUT I'm still a relative newbie, and whilst I've been getting good feedback from pupils, I'd like to keep improving my teaching technique. I...
