“I had my first Violin lesson [online]…with Jeremy and it went very well. I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my violin playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson.”

“My experience with Sage Music has been amazing. Jason and his team provides service that is above and beyond. They are willing to adapt and listen to your needs. They are passionate with what they do and it truely shows. My 5 year old daughter took piano lessons for over 6 months. I have to give all the credit to Sage Music for building the confidence in her as she now plays independently without much help. I’m impressed with the technique taught by Sage despite the little fingers she has….the key strokes are very precise. Thank you!”

adult saxophone lessons

Adult Saxophone Lessons

  • We welcome and encourage adults to take lessons at our school.
  • 65% of our students are adults. You’ll fit right in.
  • We have many adult amateurs and beginners, as well as professional musicians and producers who are refining their saxophone skills.
  • Play the music you want. Learn classical, pop, rock, jazz, or any other style you choose.

I was somewhat worried about starting piano lessons at 36 years old, but thankfully I found Sage Music. I couldn’t imagine a better place to learn music than with Jason and his team. They take the time to make sure you understand the mechanics (mental and physical) in playing an instrument, and the pace of learning is set by the individual. Highly recommend Sage Music.”

Online Saxophone Lessons

Unable to make it in to Sage Music? We can help.

We currently have students who fly from Washington, Texas, and Florida to take lessons at our award winning school. But we realize that not everyone can get to us. So we now offer saxophone lessons online for those students who are far away and won’t settle for less than a Sage education.

Other students are worried about the current health concerns, but still wish to avoid putting their life on hold.

Either way, you can benefit from the Sage Music Online. Unlike other online programs, you’ll get the same great faculty and community that you’d otherwise get at our many school locations.

  • Take music lessons with us from anywhere in the world!
  • Enjoy your progress from the security of your own home
  • Get access to our online community with open mics, studio classes, discussions, performances and more
  • Enrolled students get a free enrollment into our flagship course, The Sage Student ($549 for non students) so that you can learn how to master any music you wish
  • Benefit from the expert guidance of our professional, knowledgeable, trained and supervised Sage Music Teachers

I had my first lesson via Skype with Jeremy Roberts today and it went very well. I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my…playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson. Now it’s time to enjoy and get to work on my homework. Perfect practice makes perfect with Sage.”

Get Started with Saxophone Lessons in NYC

The flexible, voice-like tone of the saxophone has made it a prominent jazz instrument since the birth of jazz. At Sage Music, our teachers are here to help you learn to fine tune and control the bright and penetrating sound the saxophone produces, whether you want to play jazz, classical, or popular music on the instrument.

Sage Music offers private saxophone lessons in Queens and Brooklyn, New York with the finest and most dedicated instructors, committed to your growth as a musician, and as a person. We look at almost every conceivable area of learning the saxophone and music, so you can learn to play quickly and proficiently. For example, students will focus on tone production to play beautifully, the technique involved to play effortlessly, and how to practice so that you make the most of your practice time outside of your lessons.
