About Me

Hey Everybody!!! This is Kyle over at Music & Arts San Dimas. I have played sax for about nine years now. For the most part I play each saxophone on a regular basis. I also double on the clarinet and flute pretty regularly. I was first drawn to the sax because my grandpa played it. The first time I played I knew I found a life-long passion.

 

I currently am in school at Mt. Sac and am in the jazz band and combo as well as the wind ensemble and chamber groups. I look forward to eventually transfering to a CSU and then pursuing a masters and doctorate on the east coast at schools such as Berklee or Eastman.

I began taking lessons in middle school and never has anything been such an important part of my life. Nothing can match the learining expirence you can recieve from lessons. The one on one time getting to play and learn from a real world musician is incredibly rewarding for not only the student but the teacher as well. This is a great time of year to start up taking lessons with concerts and festivals right around the corner. We have many great teachers for all instruments so come on in or call and we will set you up a teacher who is a perfect fit for you.

I consider myself open to all types of music and love being showed something new. I take every opporutunity I can to get out and play and better myself as a musican. If you ever feel like talking anything music I would love to listen so come on down to the store.
