Clarinet, Saxophone, Music Theory, Jazz Improvisation
Hello, I'm Jane! I teach all levels of saxophone along with beginning clarinet and piano. I first started teaching saxophone lessons while in high school in Ferndale, WA. I love sharing my passion for music with students young and old from all backgrounds. I encourage students to embrace a fun, focused and low-stress approach to their instrument/s, first tackling basics like healthy breathing and posture, note-reading, scales, producing good tone, and developing a sense of rhythm, and gradually incorporating more complex music, basic music theory, learning to play by ear, and beginning improvisation. I am all about working with my students to discover what their unique interests and goals are - whether that's nailing their jazz band audition, joining a rock band, preparing a classical piece for a competition, exploring creativity and improvisation, or simply playing at home for their own enjoyment.
