Saxophone Lessons in Long Island, NY
Taking private saxophone lessons with a teacher one on one has advantages over taking them in a class setting. When you take lessons in a class setting it's not unusual to find yourself falling behind. When you take private saxophone lessons your teacher knows you better and can assist you directly with learning things like interval recognition, how to play minor and major diatonic seventh chord patterns and altissimo.

As many are, I was very insecure about my singing ability. Liz created an environment where I felt comfortable making sounds that were usually reserved for the car or shower. She has a good ear to identify areas to improve and provides simple exercises to help. I would recommend Liz to anyone, young or old!Zack Teacher: Liz J.
About the Saxophone
Like clarinets, saxophones use a single reed. Saxophone reeds are proportioned slightly differently to clarinet reeds, being wider for the same length. Each size of saxophone (alto, tenor, etc.) uses a different size of reed.
