About this pro

I have been teaching saxophone for over 20 years. I have been fortunate to study with some great players and have made a carreer playing and teaching music. It is important for me to pass this information on and help others reach their goals and dreams. I have a degree in saxophone performance from Duquesne University and I am the artist in residence at Boynton Beach High School. I play 4 plus gigs a week and bring this love of playing to my lessons.

I love helping students grow in ability and love of music. I work with all ages and levels from a child looking to audition for a music/art school up to a beginig adult who wants to learn songs.

    I've had several alto teachers - Mervyn Johnston is by far the best. Not just as a teacher of the instrument, but as a teacher of the music. His passion for the music, his understanding of the music, his total focus on encouraging you to make the best music you possibly can - all with kindness and expectations that match your potential - make him a gift for any student at any level.
