She also teaches occasionally at Metro Nashville Schools and gave private lessons and small group instruction while studying for her undergraduate degree.
Teaching Philosophy: Lexi believes that students learn best when they are engaged with the music. As such, her students' weekly practice assignments typically include learning music they like, listening to music actively outside of lessons, and learning by ear as well as by reading music. Her goal is for her students to be flexible, well-rounded musicians with a solid foundation in technique achieved through efficient practice strategies (and plenty of metronome use).

Get to know Alexis Jackson

Lexi Jackson is a bit of a saxophone nerd. While studying under Dr. Alex Graham at Belmont University, Lexi enjoyed learning about music and the saxophone from every angle--theory, harmony, history, technique, even a bit of psychology--and performed in the school's most prestigious ensembles, including the top Jazz Big Band and Wind Ensemble. She had the privilege of learning from many of Belmont's honored guests, including Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones), Dave Liebman (Miles Davis, Chick Corea), and Jovan Quallo (Jake Owen, Meghan Trainor). Lexi began her teaching career at Belmont as well, working as a music theory tutor for the School of Music.

Since graduating, Lexi has recorded and performed in and around Nashville in addition to teaching lessons at Music & Arts and in Metro Nashville Schools. In her spare time, Lexi likes to drink coffee, read, practice, and spend time with her cat, O'Malley.
