I'm a passionate and friendly teacher who offers private in-home lesson at your place or at my studio in Dupont Circle. With over 15 years of experience in playing saxophone and clarinet, I will make the lessons fun and easy. My qualifications include a performance diploma from the Trinity College London & Guildhall School of Music in the U.K., a Master's Degree, and I have also studied in Italy. I'm currently the music director for a church choir in DC & I have also performed with the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra, local chamber music groups and other jazz bands. I'm conversant in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese since I have lived and studied in Italy, Brazil, and Spain.
Lessons can be customized to meet your needs to learn any music including jazz, classical, pop, rock. For a total beginner, my lessons include technique, music theory or any specific knowledge as requested. For someone who has played a musical instrument before, I could help you develop a smooth, beautiful tone or guide you to achieve the ability to play notable classical, jazz or pop songs that you heard before. Children or adults are both welcome. References from my adult students or the parents of my grade-school students can be provided upon request. Students will have have ample opportunities to perform at recitals that I organize. I can also prepare you in taking The Royal School of Music (ABRSM) or Trinity College of London U.K. music exam as a benchmark to track your progress. My rate is $60 for 45 minutes, or $70 for one hour. A small fee will be added for in-home lessons. Contact by email.
