Shannon is a terrific teacher. She knows her craft and helps you develop your talents in the most patient, caring, and thorough way. She teaches you how to practice that makes playing rewarding and not that you just want to get it over with. You learn new things every time you see her. She is very supportive and helpful with her advice about your music. She is my first teacher that I have had to go to but I can tell you it's the best because I can focus better when it's quiet and there is no one else around but me and her.Mahpharah-Levittown,NY Teacher: Shannon F.
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.
