Check out Peter Spitzer at Hope Street Music Studios. Peter is excellent. Not sure what his rate is these days but in the Bay Area rates are usually double of what you are offering in my experience. Some shops like West Valley Music offer lessons too, but I can’t vouch for their teachers quality.

Just a thought but maybe post an ad at a nearby university, UC Berkeley, USF, SF State, UCSF, Stanford U. or call the music department and see if you can get a recommendation. I'm sure there are some young music students looking to make some extra cash. They'll probably work cheaper than someone renting space at the local music store.

I believe Michael Hernandez of the Mana Sax Quartet works over there at San Jose State if you’re looking for a classical instructor. He’s top notch.

For starting out, the Jazzschool in Berkeley has beginning saxophone group classes, which are more affordable, taught by Bill Aron. For private lessons, also check out Jean Fineberg, Mary Fettig or Anton Schwartz.
