Online Saxophone, Flute, & Clarinet Lessons!
Hello! I teach Saxophone/Woodwinds for Ted Brown Music Silverdale (In the Seattle, WA area). The best day job in the world! 100% of my students I teach online now, from the comfort of my home studio! I am now also accepting students billed through me directly. I use Zoom, Apple FaceTime, Facebook Messenger Video, Skype, and a few others. Any Apple, Google, Microsoft, or PC based phone, tablet, or desktop works great! Many of my students just use their iPhones/phones, and I have to admit, they work pretty darn good! Online lessons are definitely altering the landscape of music lessons nowadays, especially the last 3 years or so. Busy students can't beat the flexibility, convenience of no travel, and price! Note: (With the Covid-19 Pandemic upon us, online lessons have become the new normal in a very short time. I'm happy to say, my entire slate of students has transferred successfully to online lessons, and thank goodness are doing wonderful!)
"Danny has been our son's private saxophone teacher for the past few years, and he ia absolutely incredible. Not only does he have musical talent that will blow you away (we've heard him perform!) but he is sooo good with kids. Those two qualities together can be really hard to find. He is sweet and patient with younger kids but also has a "coolness" factor that is appealing to my teenager. Logistically speaking (in terms of lessons), he is reliable, flexible, and reasonably priced. All in all, fabulous musician and incredible teacher. You can't go wrong here."

From the beginner to the seasoned working musician, I specialize in formulating lessons towards your unique goals and vision. I believe having fun and making progress on your instrument should be synonymous! I am very patient with many years of teaching experience, and always strive to maintain a loose, happy, and encouraging atmosphere during lessons. Beginners can expect a thorough understanding of the ergonomics and physical characteristics of their chosen instrument(s), along with the rudiments of reading and understanding written music! I always try to make material we work on current and fun! (Disney Tunes, Star Wars Themes etc.! Kid's love it!) I have a wealth of knowledge regarding embouchure placement, mouthpieces, reeds, alternate fingerings etc. that can greatly help beginners! Lessons are such a great way to increase confidence in the band/classroom setting and definitely help to instill a lifetime love of and passion for music! I've helped many Middle/High School musicians ascend to Jazz Band! If understanding music theory, chord symbols, soloing through changes, and how to simplify music conceptually are your goals, you came to the right place! My specialty! All saxes (Tenor, Alto, Soprano, Baritone), Flute, and Clarinet. All ages, and musical styles are welcome! (Currently seeking 3:30 to 5:30 pm ET (Eastern Standard Time) slots, but I'm flexible with any request!)
