I love being a private saxophone and clarinet teacher.   I have taught students of all ages and at all levels of experience, and I take special pleasure from teaching beginning students, quickly helping them to establish good habits, and building a proper foundation of playing their chosen instrument.  Watching students grow from beginners into fine musicians is a most gratifying experience. 


I have enjoyed seeing the variety of accomplishments of many of my students.  One of my former students was praised by the Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune for “…alto saxophone solos [which] consistently stood out for the originality of his ideas,” another student presented several solo recitals throughout the Midwest, and other former students have performed solo works with college wind ensembles.

I teach private saxophone and clarinet lessons at a variety of locations in Lake County, Illinois.  If you live in a town that is part of the Stevenson High School district, and are interested in saxophone or clarinet lessons, please click on the link below for more information:
