About this pro

In 1995, I learned to play sax.  I teach how to play alto and baritone saxophone, which are both in E♭, how to read music, and how to improvise.  I own two alto saxophones, one for teaching.

I enjoy teaching saxophone to see people learn to play an instrument that I have played for more than 20 years.
