Private Lessons on Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, and Drums

In over 15 years of teaching, I’ve worked with students of all levels from beginner to professional, and all ages. Together we'll work on everything from fundamentals and technique, to repertoire and music, all while building a strong foundation for you to make the music you want to make!

I have worked individually with Saxophonists, Clarinetists, Flutists, Pianists, Drummers, and more, from a variety of levels from complete beginners to working professionals, all of them with different interests and areas of focus.


Feel free to write me about your own goals!

I also teach at New York Jazz Academy, so please contact me if you're interested in learning in a classroom setting. I teach group classes on Improvisation and theory and direct multiple ensembles.
