    Tracy has been the sax teacher of our daughter Roz Weeks – 13 this month – for the last 2+ years – both soprano sax, her original instrument, and baritone, which he school band teacher wanted her to play. My spouse Jeana and I have continuously been struck by how engaged and excited Roz has been – learning a lot and enjoying her time with Tracy very much. Tracy’s rich experience as a player infuses the teaching. The vision of the temple always seems to be in the room – Roz is never just laying bricks without know what she is building. Meantime, Tracy has Roz working her building blocks of scales and composition while also setting her up with CDs so that she can come home and “play with the guys.” We couldn’t have asked for more. It’s been a great experience for Roz.

    For most of my life I’ve been a “legit” trumpet player, playing in bands and orchestras. Last year, at the age of 63, I retired my trumpets in favor of the more mellow clarinet/sax (my condo neighbors were very thankful). As a believer in private lessons I went searching for a teacher and eventually began studying with Tracy. At my age I’ve had a good many private music teachers, including a principal for a big city symphony. While they all contributed to my music education, Tracy is easily the best private music teacher with whom I’ve worked. While a portion of each lesson is spent on technique, she spends an equal amount of time on music/jazz theory. She has caused me to listen and play music in completely different way. Over the years I’d forgotten that music, while always requiring dedication and work, should be fun. Tracy has rekindled my joy for playing; I’ll be forever grateful.

    Seeing other good reviews for Tracy, I went to her from the start – as in, “How do you put this thing together?” She’s a fantastic teacher, covering all the bases: technique, tone, rhythm, music theory, even in a variety of music genres (little by little introducing obscure things like the Phrygian mode, etc, etc…). Also, she’s very responsive to where I’m at, and what I’m interested in learning. Super fun!

    My two boys (9 and 11) really like Tracy. One plays the clarinet, the other a saxophone. As a parent, it is important to me that they want to go to their lessons and learn more. They have made great progress and I credit Tracy with making this happen. She is enthusiastic and fun. We love her!
