NOW OFFERING Saxophone Lessons!
Over the last 10 years I managed a large saxophone studio of middle and high school students in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Now that I have relocated, I am looking forward to building a studio here in Cedar Falls, Iowa!

“I studied with Chris for about 6 years from the beginning of my time playing the saxophone to the end. His technical abilities are obvious and they not only helped to teach me as a student, but to inspire me as a musician to strive for more. He is an excellent teacher, performer, and person. He constantly propels his students forward to what he knows that they can achieve. Chris is undoubtedly one of the best teachers I've ever had due to his perseverance and dedication as a teacher, and because of his willingness never to give up on any student."---Gabby B.

Middle and High School students have busy lives! Due to that, lesson times are flexible and will include nights and weekends, to help work around your family's schedule.

Lessons are 30 minutes in length. During that time, I will focus on the needs of each student. Those needs may include fundamentals (embouchure, articulation, etc.), technique, All-Region/All-State music, Solo/Ensemble music, and any other music that the student may need to work on for an upcoming performance.

*after moving to Iowa, a handful of former students wanted to continue lessons through FaceTime. It has been quite successful, with two students making their All-Region bands in November.
