Teaching


I enjoy teaching students of any skill level! I have experience teaching saxophone technique, improvisation, music theory, and composition. For lessons, I charge $30 for a half hour, and $45 for an hour. I offer a free 20 minute preliminary lesson to discuss goals and ensure a good match.

I am happy to teach online, or in person in the Toronto area (outdoors and at a distance, for now). Click here to read further about my experience and approach!

I am a 2018 graduate of The University of Toronto’s jazz program. I have studied the saxophone extensively, a former student of Dave Liebman, Wallace Halladay, Mike Murley, John Johnson, Kelly Jefferson, Kirk MacDonald, and many more. I have experience in both jazz and classical technique, striving for control, understanding, and efficiency in my own playing.

Compositionally, I have studied both classical and jazz methods, with my teachers including Sasha Rapoport, John Hollenbeck, Andrew Downing, and Terry Promane.

For me it’s a great joy sharing my knowledge of music. I have taught a variety of private students, and given workshops to high schools and universities across Canada. My teaching is structured around individual student’s needs, with the goal of generating enjoyment, growth, satisfaction from music!
