Saxophone Lessons

I start every lesson with some fundamentals. I'm a fan of the Breathing Gym for all wind players so I would start with this. I also think scale studies are an important area for all instrumentalists so this would be next on the list.

Euphonium Lessons

I'm a big believer in proper foundations at all levels so doing some exercises from both the breathing and brass gym in every lesson.

I think hearing a good characteristic sounds is also important so there will be points I play with them. most likely from a duet book.

If there aren't working on specific recital material I'll assign exercises and excerpts for them weekly. These will most likely come from a Rochut or Arbans book as well as other solo material that I see fit given their experience level.

I'll be teaching them how to practice technical passages by doing so with them. I will also be recording and posting videos of parts of their lessons so they can hear themselves as well as see their progress.

If at all possible, I'll have them perform for either their family or a friend as often as we can.
