    Justin is full of energy. He is able to figure out what style of learning works best for his students. He is also patient. I’d recommend Justin for saxophone lessons.

    Justin Berchtold is a fabulous teacher. He’s very professional, and I’ve learned a tremendous amount from our lessons.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Our first lesson will be free. During this lesson, we'll discuss your goals and hear you play. After this, we'll begin working with you and prescribing practice to better your playing!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

As Concertmaster and principal clarinetist of the Marine Corps Forces Pacific Band, I performed hundreds of times around the world. I've also played with several different regional orchestras in Hawaii and Illinois. Most recently, I played saxophone with a latin band in Hawaii - Son Caribe. I've been teaching for 7 years and find my most joyful moments teaching others.

How did you get started teaching?

In addition to music, I've done martial arts my whole life and found my first teaching experience there. By the time I completed my third black belt and 16 years later, I had logged over 3000 hours teaching classes of all ages and skill sets. I began teaching music shortly after winning my job with the Marine Corps band 7 years ago and have been teaching privately since. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students young as 4 and as old as 62!
