I've played sax since I was a kid (I'm 38 now), but only started getting serious about jazz improvisation a couple of years ago. I've been teaching myself using various books -- Aebersold, Levine, Coker, this forum and others, etc. -- and have done fairly well with it, I think, especially given my limited practice time. I'm in a band with some friends, and having a place to actually put the stuff into practice has been tremendous.

I seem to have hit a bit of a wall, however, and find myself wondering what kind of progress I could make with a good teacher. Any suggestions for such a teacher in the Dallas area? I'm comfortable with the horn, so it doesn't have to be a sax-oriented person (though it certainly wouldn't hurt).

Thanks.

If you want try driving to Denton, not too far from you, and study with Mike Steinel. There are also plenty of guys around dallas, you can't go wrong with Tim Ishii, try even finding soem of the grad students at UNT, they are always helpful!

Randy Lee, Randy Lee, Randy Lee. If you want his number, let me know via PM, and I can send it to you. I am also available to teach ;) ; however, if you can land in Randy's studio you will learn everything you ever wanted to know. Tim and Mike would be great as well ... I've studied under both of them quite extensively. But, if you're in Dallas and not in Denton, I strongly urge you to take lessons from Randy. If you're in the Grapevine area, try Jim Pritchard. He lurks the boards here every now and then. Hope this helps out.

RL is one the most naturally talented jazz tenor players I have had the pleasure of hearing in the last 42 years. This white dude has more soul than all the black tenor players on the scene today combined (thanks to Marshall Ivery) AND WHAT A BEAUTIFUL TONE.
