I give saxophone lessons in your home in the Triangle or at my home studio in northern Chapel Hill!

     I have been playing saxophone since 1989 with performing and teaching experience that includes classical and jazz performance styles, also having woodwind studies on flute and bamboo flute. I received a Bachelor of Music Education in 2000 and a Master of Arts in Ethnomusicology in 2010, having also studied in China on Chinese bamboo flute (2002 - 2004) with active participation in traditional Chinese music ensembles through the years. I have also studied privately on Western (regular) flute, and have conducted graduate level music field research in China (2007 - 2009), having spoken Mandarin Chinese actively since 2002. 我会讲普通话(国语)!
