Saxophone Lessons 2.0

Learn to play the saxophone!

The saxophone is probably one of the most popular instruments in jazz and pop music.

If you are interested in learning this versatile instrument, or in further developing existing skills, please contact me!
We’ll arrange a video call and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about the saxophone and how to teach.


The year 2020 has set quite a few things in motion. The experiences of 2020/21 have initiated SAXOPHONE TEACHING 2.0 for me, and hybrid teaching (analog/digital) offers many new possibilities.
The aim is to bring together the best of both worlds to make lessons even more varied and productive in terms of content.

All this of course with a lot of pleasure under the motto “SERIOUS FUN“!

I will be happy to assist you with my many years of experience and together we will discover the world of music and the saxophone.

Online coaching for teachers!

You are a music/instrument teacher and want to learn more about the possibilities, software usage and technical requirements of online teaching?

I offer personal coaching to help you get started in the digital world! Previous experience is not required.
