Flutes are used in orchestras, chamber groups and band to play classical pop, show tunes, new wave, rock, blues and jazz. etc. The flute can be amplified by the use of a microphone or pick up for players who need their instrument to sound louder.

 

Flute lessons will first focus on getting the student to form a correct embouchure (The proper formation of the lips, jaw, and tongue for playing) to make a pleasant sounding note. From there, basic technique, musical terms, reading music, proper breathing, and theory will be taught in the first six months before working on more advanced material.

 

 The musical styles listed below are music styles that I teach but are not all popular on all instruments.

 

 

You can find the clarinet in all major orchestras and in classical, jazz, rock, pop, blues, dixieland, jazz and other styles.

 

Clarinet lessons will first focus on getting the student to form a correct embouchure (The proper formation of the lips, jaw, and tongue for playing) to make a pleasant sounding note. From there, basic technique, musical terms, reading music, proper breathing, and theory will be taught in the first six months before working on more advanced material. Learning to play the clarinet, a single reed instrument will prepare you for playing the saxophone which is also a single reed instrument. The embouchure (The formation of the lips, jaw, tongue) and use of the muscles are very similar. The proper technique of breathing and controlling the air flow to produce a nice tone is similar also.

 

 The musical styles below are music styles that I teach but are not all popular on all instruments.

 

For more advanced students, lessons will teach improvisation as it can be applied to blues, jazz, dixieland and other styles of music. The clarinet lessons will help the student develop their own individual musical style.

 

 

The saxophone is an instrument that is used in many styles of music such as classical, jazz, rock, pop, blues and other styles. The saxophone can be amplified by the use of a clip on microphone or microphone on a boom stand for players who need their instrument to sound louder.

 

Saxophone lessons will first focus on getting the student to form a correct embouchure (The proper formation of the lips, jaw, and tongue for playing) to make a pleasant sounding note. From there, basic technique, musical terms, reading music, proper breathing, and theory will be taught in the first six months before working on more advanced material.

 

For more advanced sax students, sax lessons will teach improvisation as it can be applied to jazz, blues, and modern popular music. These lessons will help the student develop their own individual musical style.

 

The musical styles taught are rock, blues, funk, R&B, rockabilly, jazz, classical, folk, country, bluegrass, reggae, gospel, Latin, Brazilian, and broadway, pop, and more!

 

Greg Madison Music Studio is a place where continual teaching improvement, expert music instruction and quality customer service are the highest priorities. I provide the very best instruction available through innovative teaching methods, fun learning concepts and an ongoing expansion of services, including student teacher jams and ensemble classes. I provide musical experiences that are versatile, fun and repeatedly elevate my students' passion and desire for playing music.

 

Group jam/theory sessions with 4 to 9 students are available in different styles of music with other students of same abilities two times a year. The instruments in these sessions will depend on the student ability and availability These sessions are for people who have played with me and demonstrated that they have the knowledge, ability, dexterity, and can play in time. Another prerequisite is that they have had the basic writing of music notation with us prior to the start of these jam/theory classes. The first level type class works with written music or riff type play in different styles. The more advanced classes are improvisation classes in blues, rock, jazz etc.
