Saxophonist with 12 years of musical experience in the New York University Jazz Studies program offering saxophone and music theory lessons to all ages

Methodology

Having gone through rigorous musical training, Joseph has found his love in transferring his knowledge onto aspiring young artists. Joseph creates a stress-free environment while teaching students, as he wants them to feel comfortable with their musical abilities. Lessons will take place on Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime depending on student preference. The first lesson with Joseph will be free of charge, as it will be purely diagnostic to understand what his students excel at and what they need to work on. Based on his students' musical voice, Joseph will incorporate lesson materials unique to each student.

Background

Joseph is an Alumni of the Interlochen Arts Academy and has been teaching jazz saxophone and music theory for two years. He is now a student of NYU pursuing Jazz Performance with an intent on double majoring in Composition, and is currently recording, freelancing, and busking throughout New York. Joseph has a breadth of experience ranging from simpler concepts such as a basic understanding of saxophone fingerings and reading sheet music to extended techniques, breath control and tone production, doubling knowledge for saxophonists, and more complex music theory concepts such as counterpoint and 4-5 part harmony.
